The Nets coronavirus scenario retains getting worse.
DeAndre Jordan joined Spencer Dinwiddie as the most recent Brooklyn gamers to announce Monday that they examined optimistic for COVID-19. Jordan stated he won’t be attending the NBA’s July restart in Orlando, whereas Dinwiddie’s standing stays unclear.
“Came upon final night time and confirmed once more at the moment that I’ve examined optimistic for Covid whereas being again in market,” Jordan tweeted Monday night. “On account of this, I can’t be in Orlando for the resumption of the season.”
The 31-year-old Jordan didn’t say if he – like Dinwiddie — is experiencing coronavirus signs.
He joins a big contingent of Nets who won’t be at Disney’s Broad World of Sports activities when the NBA season is anticipated to renew on July 31. Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and Nic Claxton will all miss it due to damage and Wilson Chandler has opted out due to coronavirus issues.
If Dinwiddie, 27, and Jordan each miss the restart, the Nets will probably be preventing for a playoff spot with out their place to begin guard and middle. Jordan began over Jarrett Allen within the Nets last two video games earlier than the NBA season went on pause because of the pandemic.
Jordan was averaging eight.three factors and 10 rebounds in 22 minutes per recreation when the season stopped.
