After testing positive for coronavirus, Brooklyn Nets Taurean Prince will not be traveling with the team to Orlando to participate in the NBA restart, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported Tuesday evening.
Brooklyn Nets forward Taurean Prince has tested positive for the coronavirus and will sit out the NBA’s restart in Orlando, sources tell ESPN.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) July 7, 2020
Prince is the fourth Nets player to not participate in the league's restart due to the virus -- DeAndre Jordan, Spencer Dinwiddie, and Wilson Chandler are also out.
The Nets have the most players not playing in Orlando of any team invited to the bubble if you include Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving who are both sitting out as they rehabilitate their injuries.
The Nets now have four roster spots at their disposal to substitute for guys not making the trip.
Prince was one of the biggest Nets names heading to Orlando as he started 61 of 64 games for Brooklyn while averaging 12 points and six rebounds.
The Washington Wizards are currently six games behind Brooklyn, making this news major for the home team's efforts towards the postseason. However, with Bradley Beal and Davis Bertans opting out of the restart, circumstance still slightly favors Brooklyn because of their already established lead.
