Rockets Suspend Kevin Porter Jr., Christian Wood One Game Apiece

Jan 3, 2022 2:45 PM

The Houston Rockets have suspended Kevin Porter Jr. and Christian Wood for Monday's game due to their behavior surrounding Saturday's loss to the Denver Nuggets.

Neither Porter nor Wood played in the second half of the Rockets' loss to the Nuggets, which included Porter leaving the arena after a halftime locker room confrontation with assistant coach John Lucas.

Wood was benched to start Saturday's game and appeared to pout over Stephen Silas' punishment for him failing to show up for the team's daily COVID-19 testing, which caused the team's shootaround to be delayed.

Wood showed little inclination to check into Saturday's game when Silas called him.
