Los Angeles: Brooklyn Nets center DeAndre Jordan will not play again this season and teammate Spencer Dinwiddie’s participation is also in doubt after both tested positive for the coronavirus on Monday.
“Found out last night and confirmed again today that I’ve tested positive for Covid while being back in market. As a result of this, I will not be in Orlando for the resumption of the season,” Jordan said Monday on Twitter.
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.
It is a further blow to playoff ambitions of the Nets who are already without stars Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant because of injury.
