Report: Nets' Taurean Prince out of NBA restart after positive coronavirus test

On the same day that Brooklyn Nets guard Spencer Dinwiddie confirmed he won't participate in the 22-team NBA restart after he tested positive for the coronavirus multiple times, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski tweeted that forward Taurean Prince is also out after testing positive for the virus: 

It's yet another blow for a Brooklyn team that is quickly running out of bodies. 

Superstars Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving are rehabbing injuries and are out, as is Nic Claxton. DeAndre Jordan isn't playing after he tested positive for the coronavirus in late June. Wilson Chandler opted to not play for family reasons. 

Prince, 26 years old, averaged 12.1 PPG and 6.0 REB in 64 appearances and 61 starts before the Association halted the campaign on March 11 due to the pandemic. 

Zac Wassink is a football and futbol aficionado who is a PFWA member and is probably yelling about Tottenham Hotspur at the moment. Erik Lamela and Eli Manning apologist. Chanted for Matt Harvey to start the ninth inning of Game 5 of the 2015 World Series at Citi Field. Whoops. You can find him on Twitter at @ZacWassink
