The Nets will have more players out than healthy when the NBA season resumes

The Brooklyn Nets are running out of options. Taurean Prince became the team’s latest player to test positive for coronavirus and he will not make the trip to Orlando.

In addition to Prince, Spencer Dinwiddie and Deandre Jordan are out after testing positive for coronavirus. Wilson Chandler opted out of returning. Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and Nicolas Claxton are all out with injuries.

Brooklyn will need excellent play from Caris LeVert, Joe Harris and Jarrett Allen. They will also need everyone who’s healthy to step up.

The Nets will have to sign some new players and there are rumors that Amir Johnson and Jamal Crawford could be options.

As depleted as the Nets are, they will have an opportunity to make the postseason, as the ninth-place Washington Wizards will be without Bradley Beal and Davis Bertans.

Still, Brooklyn’s road to the playoffs will be a difficult one.
