BEIJING, Oct 11 (Reuters) - The U.S.

National Basketball Association (NBA) has decided not to make the Brooklyn Nets and the Los Angeles Lakers available to media during the rest of their China trip amid a furore over a Houston Rockets executive's tweet supporting Hong Kong's protesters, according to a tweet by an ESPN reporter.

A statement from the U.S. league quoted by ESPN's Dave McMenamin in a tweet said the teams "have been placed into a complicated and unprecedented situation while abroad" and that it would be unfair to ask them to address the situation in real time.
