HOUSTON (LEX 18) — Cats fans will have to wait a bit longer before seeing former UK stars John Wall and Demarcus Cousins return to the hardwood.
NBA insider Shams Charania reported Wednesday that Wall and Cousins, among other Houston Rockets teammates, will miss the season opener against Oklahoma City due to COVID-19 contact tracing.
