Brooklyn Nets center DeAndre Jordan has tested positive for the coronavirus and opted out of next month’s Orlando, Florida, restart with his team, he announced Monday.
“Found out last night and confirmed again today that I’ve tested positive for Covid while being back in market,” Jordan wrote on Twitter. “As a result of this, I will not be in Orlando for the resumption of the season.”
Jordan’s agent with Excel Sports informed management of the decision on Monday, sources said.
Jordan and guard Spencer Dinwiddie tested positive for COVID-19, though Dinwiddie has yet to officially rule himself out, he told The Athletic on Monday.
