“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. Given that I have experienced symptoms, including fever and chest tightness, it is unclear on whether or not I’ll be able to participate in Orlando.”
Dinwiddie was in the form of his career this season prior to the stoppage, averaging 20.6 points, 6.8 assists, and 3.5 rebounds per game in the 64 appearances he’s made for Brooklyn this season.
The Nets currently hold a record of 30-34 and will enter the Orlando restart as the seventh-ranked team in the Eastern Conference.
