Nets’ Taurean Prince tests positive for coronavirus, out for NBA restart

The Brooklyn Nets have lost yet another player for the NBA restart, Taurean Prince, as he tested positive for coronavirus and will sit out.

Prince is the fourth Nets player to opt out of the season restart, along with DeAndre Jordan, Spencer Dinwiddie and Wilson Chandler.

Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and Nicolas Claxton are out due to injury.

The Nets are eligible to sign four substitution players, as the team has already departed for Orlando, Adrian Wojnarowski noted.

Prince was declared out of Orlando because the late-timing of his positive test put his build-up back to basketball in jeopardy.

This season, Prince averaged 12.1 points, 6.0 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game.
