After testing positive for the coronavirus and experiencing some symptoms, Brooklyn Nets guard Spencer Dinwiddie is unsure about his status for the NBA’s restart in Orlando.
“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, via The Athletic. “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.
“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.”
Through 64 games, Dinwiddie has averaged 20.6 points, 6.8 assists and 3.5 rebounds for the 30-34 Nets. Teams have until Wednesday to finalize their rosters for the remainder of the season.
