Brooklyn Nets guard Spencer Dinwiddie tested positive for the coronavirus and is now unsure if he will play in the Orlando bubble.
“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 … I flew private 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.”
Dinwiddie went on to add, ” Originally, we were supposed to be one of the teams to enter into the Orlando bubble early, but training camp got switched back to New York and unfortunately I am now positive. 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.”
As of right now, Dinwiddie plans to remain in quarantine and reevaluate his options in 14 days.
The Nets have a record of 30-34, good enough for seventh in the Eastern Conference.
With that positioning, the Nets made the 22-team cut for the July 30 restart.
Along with Dinwiddie, the Nets will also be without forward Wilson Chandler, who opted out of playing on Sunday.
Spencer Dinwiddie had averages of 20.6 points, 6.8 assists, and 3.5 rebounds when the season got suspended on March 11.
