Wilson Chandler has announced his decision to skip the restart of the NBA in Orlando next month.

The forward of the Brooklyn Nets cited being close to his family as the main reason for skipping the resumption of the season.

“As difficult as it will be to not be with my teammates, the health and well-being of my family has to come first. Thank you to the Nets organization for understanding and supporting me in this decision, and I will be watching and rooting for our team in Orlando,” Chandler told Malika Andrews of ESPN.
