Nets SG Spencer Dinwiddie told The Athletic's Shams Charania that he has tested positive for the coronavirus. And he isn't the only Net.
DeAndre Jordan also revealed on his own Twitter account that he tested positive, and won't be joining the Nets in Orlando for the NBA's restart.
"Found out last night and confirmed again today that I've tested positive for Covid while being back in market," Jordan wrote. "As a result of this, I will not be in Orlando for the resumption of the season."
Dinwiddie said that upon flying private back to New York, he didn't test positive and was able to participate in practices. Jordan said he contracted the virus while in New York as well.
Unlike Jordan, though, Dinwiddie is teetering with whether or not he'll be joining Brooklyn in Florida.
"Over the past few months, I have been diligent about protecting myself and others from COVID-19 by following all designated protocol and quarantining," Dinwiddie said. "I was ready and prepared to rejoin my teammates as we were to be an early entry team in the resumed season. I flew private to return to New York, passed multiple COVID-19 tests over my first several days in New York and was able to participate in a couple practices within the first week.
"Given that I have experienced symptoms, including fever and chest tightness, it is unclear on whether or not I'll be able to participate in Orlando."
Dinwiddie will be tested again after 14 days, in which he will be self-quarantining, and one would expect Jordan to do the same. A key cog for this Nets team, Dinwiddie has stepped up in the absence of Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant this season, with a career-high 20.6 points per game along with 3.5 rebounds and 6.8 assists. He was also shooting 41.5 percent from the field.
As for Jordan, he's averaged 8.3 points, 10 rebounds, and 0.9 blocks per game in his first year with the Nets. With Jarrett Allen the team's starting center, Jordan has averaged only 22 minutes per game.
Wilson Chandler is another Net that won't be attending the restart, as he has told team that he's decided not to travel.
Durant and Irving -- both dealing with their own surgeries from separate injuries -- also won't be a part of the league's reboot. Irving has also been very vocal about not supporting the Orlando restart because he believes it is taking away from the Black Lives Matter movement that has been shedding light on social injustice and police brutality throughout the country.
