    Nets' Spencer Dinwiddie: Sitting out Orlando restart

    Spencer Dinwiddie (illness) confirmed Tuesday that he won't accompany the Brooklyn Nets to Orlando for the restart of the 2019-20 season, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.Dinwiddie tested positive for COVID-19 near the end of June, and "out of an abundance of caution," the Nets have determined that it's best to hold the guard out of action for the remainder of the season. With DeAndre Jordan (illness), Kevin Durant (Achilles), and Kyrie Irving (shoulder) also sitting out, the Nets will be down four key rotation players as they look to hold on to one of the final playoff spots in the East.

    Nets' Spencer Dinwiddie: Tests positive for COVID-19

    Spencer Dinwiddie confirmed Monday that he's tested positive for COVID-19 and is uncertain whether he'll join the Brooklyn Nets in Orlando when the NBA season resumes in late July, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.Dinwiddie will now go into a self-quarantine for 14 days and see how he feels before determining whether he'll participate in the resumed season. The guard noted that he's exhibited symptoms of the coronavirus, specifically mentioning a fever and tightness in his chest. With Kevin Durant (Achilles), Kyrie Irving (shoulder) and Nicolas Claxton (shoulder) all shut down for the season and Wilson Chandler (personal) and DeAndre Jordan (illness) choosing not to join the team in Orlando, the Nets -- who currently sit seventh in the Eastern Conference standings -- may have precious few experienced rotation options available if Dinwiddie also sits out.

    Nets' Spencer Dinwiddie: To play for Nigerian national team

    Spencer Dinwiddie is getting a Nigerian passport and will play for the Nigerian national team after not receiving a Team USA Olympic invite, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.Given the available talent pool for the Team USA to pull from, it's not a shock that Dinwiddie wasn't invited despite averaging 20.6 points, 6.8 assists and 3.5 rebounds across 31.2 minutes per game last season. So in an effort to play on the international stage, he'll opt to join the Nigerian squad. Mike Brown is the coach, and Al-Farouq Aminu, Josh Okogie, Chimezie Metu and Okpe Udoh will be some of Dinwiddie's teammates.

    Nets' Spencer Dinwiddie: Inefficient in loss
