Another member of the Brooklyn Nets’ roster will not be with the team when they take part in the league’s resumption of the 2019-20 season in late July.
Heading into Sunday, the Nets were already set to play without Kevin Durant (right Achilles), Kyrie Irving (right shoulder) and Nic Claxton (left shoulder) with Brooklyn’s two stars still in the middle of rehab and the Nets rookie fresh off of surgery.
Wilson Chandler is the latest member of Brooklyn to decide to sit out the NBA’s restart at Disney World in Florida, according to Malika Andrews of ESPN.
Andrews is reporting Chandler is “opting out of playing,” and he has informed the organization. Chandler also told Andrews:
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.
Wilson Chandler has informed the Nets that he is opting out of playing in Orlando, the forward tells ESPN.
