    BROOKLYN Nets guard Spencer Dinwiddie says he has tested positive for the coronavirus.

    Dinwiddie told The Athletic he is experiencing symptoms and it is unclear if he can play when the NBA season resumes.

    His absence would be a significant blow to the Nets. He has played well this season with Kyrie Irving out of the lineup because of injuries.

    Dinwiddie says he tested negative for the virus multiple times after returning to New York and took part in a couple practices. But he has since tested positive and says he has a fever and chest soreness.

    He is at least the fifth Nets player to test positive. The previous four were in March, with Kevin Durant saying he was among them.

    Dinwiddie is averaging 20.6 points for the Nets, who have a half-game lead over Orlando for seventh place in the Eastern Conference. They are set to face the Magic on July 31 in their first game back.
