Days go by and players keep opting-out of the resumed NBA season at Orlando. Whether is due health concerns or a form of protest, multiple ballers have decided they won't take part of the Florida re-start.
This time was the Rockets Forward who announced it, as Thabo Sefolosha won't travel with the squad to Orlando, according to Adrian Wojnarowski from ESPN.

Before the season got suspended, the 36 year-old was averaging 2.2 points, 2.3 rebounds and 0.6 assists per game on 40.7 shooting from the field. Before Houston, the 14-year NBA veteran played for Utah, Atlanta, Chicago and Oklahoma City.
The Rockets Forward told Kelly Iko from The Athletic that the league was asking for “a huge commitment” having them away from their families for that long amidst the increasing COVID-19 cases.
Thabo Sefolosha will lose approximately $230,000 in salary by sitting out.
