Jordan announced on Twitter he’s opting out of the league’s restart strategies because of the positive test:
Dinwiddie told Shams Charania of The Athletic he’s dealing with signs and isn’t sure whether he’ll be readily available when the season resumes at ESPN’s Wide World of Sports Complex just beyond Orlando, Florida.
” Originally, we were supposed to be one of the groups to enter into the Orlando bubble early, however training school got switched back to New york city and unfortunately I am now favorable,” he said. “Considered that I have experienced signs, consisting of fever and chest tightness, it is uncertain on whether I’ll have the ability to participate in Orlando. Hindsight is 20/20”
Webs forward Wilson Chandler informed ESPN’s Malika Andrews he’s not going to play during the remainder of the campaign in order to spend the time with his household, while Brooklyn stars Kyrie Irving (shoulder) and Kevin Durant (Achilles) stay sidelined by injuries. Irving has also been versus the reboot to focus on social justice reform.
The Webs sit seventh in the Eastern Conference after publishing a 30-34 record before the season was halted March11 That gives them a 1.5-game lead over the Orlando Magic and a six-game advantage over the Washington Wizards heading into the reduced eight-game finish to the regular season.
Two of those three teams will inhabit the last set of playoff berths in the East.
Caris LeVert, Joe Harris, Taurean Prince and Jarrett Allen would lead the makeshift Brooklyn lineup if Dinwiddie ultimately doesn’t play in Orlando.
The Nets will be a long shot to make a deep postseason run because of the high-profile absences, however they should be chief title contenders next year if they return to full strength.
