A huge blow for the Brooklyn Nets.

Nets big man DeAndre Jordan confirmed on his Twitter account that he tested positive for coronavirus on Monday (Tuesday in Manila time).

Because of his COVID-19 test result, the one-time All Star decided not to join his team in Orlando for the NBA return on July 30.

“Found out last night and confirmed again today that I’ve tested positive for Covid while being back in market,” Jordan said.

“As a result of this, I will not be in Orlando for the resumption of the season.”


Meanwhile, Nets guard Spencer Dinwiddie was also tested positive for coronavirus although he stated that he will still play for the team.

Brooklyn is currently sitting at the seventh spot in the East, and will still miss the star power of Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving to recover from their respective injuries.
