NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Brooklyn Nets players DeAndre Jordan and Spencer Dinwiddie announced Monday night that they have tested positive for COVID-19.
"Found out last night and confirmed again today that I’ve tested positive for Covid while being back in market," Jordan tweeted. "As a result of this, I will not be in Orlando for the resumption of the season."
Dinwiddie told The Athletic he tested positive after taking several tests.
"Over the past few months, I have been diligent about protecting myself and others from COVID-19 by following all designated protocol and quarantining," he 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."
He continued, "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."
When the pandemic struck, Nets player Kevin Durant and three other unnamed players tested positive for COVID-19, but they have since recovered.
