Brooklyn Nets guard Spencer Dinwiddie will not participate in the season restart in Orlando, he announced on Tuesday.
Dinwiddie says he consulted with team doctors after he received a second positive test for COVID-19. Dinwiddie and the team decided that it would be in his "best interest" to stay home.
After another positive test yesterday and considering the symptoms, @BrooklynNets, team doctors and I have decided that it would be in the best interest for me and the team that I do not play in Orlando. I will be supporting the guys every step of the way! #AudienceOfOne- Spencer Dinwiddie (@SDinwiddie_25) July 7, 2020
Dinwiddie is not the first Nets player to opt-out of the restart. He joins DeAndre Jordan and Wilson Chandler, who announced their decisions last week.
The Nets (30-34) are currently the No. 7 seed in the Eastern Conference.
