The former Kia MVP arrived five days after his team moved in last week. The Rockets have not disclosed a reason for Harden’s late arrival.
Harden must quarantine in his hotel room before he is able to join his teammates at practice.
One of his teammates — Russell Westbrook — announced on Monday that he tested positive for COVID-19. According to ESPN, the Rockets hope Westbrook will be able to travel to Orlando this week. But reportedly there’s no set date for his travel.
The Rockets (40-24) are currently the No. 6 seed in the Western Conference. Their first game in Orlando is against the Dallas Mavericks on July 31 (9 p.m. ET, ESPN).
