The Brooklyn Nets’ Wilson Chandler has told the team that he won't play in the NBA's restart in Orlando, Florida, from its coronavirus shutdown.

Chandler said the main reason is he wants to spend more time with his family, particularly his grandmother who raised him and his three children. He told ESPN Sunday, “As difficult as it will be to not be with my teammates, the health and well-being of my family has to come first.” 


Utah's Gobert Still Hasn't Fully Recovered

The Utah Jazz’s Rudey Gobert, the first NBA player to test positive for the coronavirus in mid-March, has revealed that he still hasn’t fully recovered.

The 28-year-old told French newspaper ‘L’Equipe’ that his sense of smell is still affected, saying, “The taste has returned, but the smell is still not 100 percent. I can smell the smells, but not from afar.

"I spoke to specialists, who told me that it could take up to a year.” However, Gobert intends to play when the NBA season restarts in Orlando. The league suspended its season after Gobert tested positive.
