That was after this run-in on the court.

According to Bleacher Report, Adrian Wojnarowski, James Harden, Chris Paul, Trevor Ariza and Gerald Green are the Rockets involved. The group was in search of Austin Rivers and Blake Griffin specifically.
They left the locker room before things got physical, but the NBA has still elected to investigate.
The NBA's investigation into the Clippers-Rockets tomfoolery began late Monday night and continues into today, league sources tell ESPN. There will be no shortage of punished individuals.

When asked about the situation, Griffin said:
“We were where we were supposed to be. We were in our locker room. So whatever happens over there, I mean, we can’t control what anybody else does. We control what we did. Everybody was in our seats. That’s it. You should ask them.”
