Nets Star DeAndre Jordan Tests Positive For COVID-19, Out Of NBA Restart

Breaking News

Brooklyn Nets star DeAndre Jordan just revealed he has coronavirus … and says he will NOT be in the Orlando bubble next month for the restart of the NBA season.
The 31-year-old former NBA All-Star made the announcement on social media, writing … “Found out last night and confirmed again today that I’ve tested positive for Covid while being back in market.”
Jordan continued … “As a result of this, I will not be in Orlando for the resumption of the season.”
The Nets are currently in 7th place in the NBA’s Eastern Conference … but will now be without their starting center when the season tips off again in July.
Jordan — who was averaging 8 points and 10 boards a game this season — isn’t the only BK star who recently came down with the virus.
Spencer Dinwiddie announced this week he also tested positive … but says he has not yet decided if he will attempt to rejoin his squad in Florida.
FYI, Kevin Durant also tested positive in March … but has recovered from the virus. KD — ’cause of his Achilles injury last year — is out for the season.
The NBA restart has stirred up a ton of controversy … with players from Kyrie Irving (another Net) and Fred VanVleet openly saying they don’t support hooping again this year.
Still, the season kicks off July 30 — and unfortunately for Brooklyn — the big 7-footer won’t be in the bubble as the Nets fight to remain in the playoffs.
