According to Shams Charania, the doctors on the Brooklyn Nets team decided to cautiously suspend Spencer Dinwiddie by restarting the NBA.
“After another positive test yesterday [July 6] Given the symptoms, the doctors at the @ BrooklynNets team and I decided it was in the best interest for me and the team not to play in Orlando. I will support the boys on every step! Dinwiddie tweeted.
Dinwiddie recently was optimistic in a tweet on July 5 that he might be able to play in Orlando and says, “The headache with sinus pressure when I get up is gradually subsiding.”
He also noticed that he felt dizzy on an exercise bike and felt weak.
Dinwiddie is officially the sixth Nets player who won’t play when the season restarts, along with Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, Deandre Jordan, Wilson Chandler and Nic Claxton.
This season, the 27-year-old scored an average of 20.6 points, 3.5 rebounds and 6.8 assists per game while shooting 41.5 percent of the field.
