Dinwiddie tweeted the news.
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
The Nets were scheduled to arrive in Orlando on Tuesday as one of the 22 NBA teams scheduled to resume games on July 30. They are in seventh place in the Eastern Conference, a half-game ahead of the Orlando Magic, who currently hold the final playoff spot.
Losing Dinwiddie leaves a big hole for the Nets. He was second on the team in scoring this season at 20.6 points per game. The top scorer, Kyrie Irving, played in only 20 games because of injury, compared with Dinwiddie's 64. Dinwiddie led the team in assists with 6.8 per game.
