BROOKLYN — The Brooklyn Nets don’t look ready for a restart, but general manager Sean Marks says there was no discussion of the team not traveling to Florida for the resumption of the NBA season.

DeAndre Jordan and Wilson Chandler aren’t going, and Spencer Dinwiddie's status is uncertain after both he and Jordan tested positive for the coronavirus.

Marks also says neither Kevin Durant nor Kyrie Irving will return from injuries to rejoin the Nets this season.

The GM says he will support any other players who choose not to play.

Brooklyn is currently in seventh place in the Eastern Conference.
