Nets and former Colorado guard Spencer Dinwiddie won’t take part in the restart of the NBA season.

Dinwiddie announced Tuesday that he is still testing positive for coronavirus and won’t participate.

At least six players on the Nets have tested positive for the virus. But Brooklyn general manager said last week there was no discussion of the team not traveling to Florida for the resumption of the NBA season.

Dinwiddie joined Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving aren’t coming back, DeAndre Jordan and Wilson Chandler among the Nets players not participating.

“After another positive test yesterday and considering the symptoms, (the Nets), team doctors and I have decided that it would be in the best interest for me and the team that I do not play in Orlando,” Dinwiddie wrote on Twitter. “I will be supporting the guys every step of the way!”
