Nets point guard Spencer Dinwiddie announced Monday he has tested positive for the coronavirus and is uncertain to join the team in Florida for next month's restart of the National Basketball Association season.
"I was ready and prepared to rejoin my teammates as we were to be an early entry team in the resumed season", Dinwiddie said.
Dinwiddie said he tested negative for the virus multiple times after returning to Brooklyn and took part in a couple practices. "But training camp got switched back to NY and unfortunately I am now positive".
The news about Dinwiddie comes one day after Brooklyn forward Wilson Chandler announced he won't play in the restarted season at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex near Orlando.More news: Fox Sports ending $1.2bn US Open golf deal
Jordan wrote that he had learned of his diagnosis Sunday night after returning to NY and it was confirmed again Monday.
Jordan signed with the Nets last summer, joining Durant and Kyrie Irving.

Brooklyn Nets star DeAndre Jordan revealed on Monday that he has COVID-19. Last year, Brooklyn had no match for Joel Embiid who dropped an average of 24.8 points and 13.5 rebounds per game in the playoffs.
They lead the ninth-seeded Washington Wizards by six games with only eight seeding games scheduled, so under normal circumstances it would seem Washington has no chance.
He said it remained unclear whether he would be able to play in Orlando, where 22 teams will be based for the remainder of the season. Both should get some playing time now.
The bigger question in the days to come may not be how the Nets compete in Orlando, but whether they'll send any semblance of a team there at all.More news: Trailer, Release Date, Cast — Cursed Netflix Collection
