Taurean Prince tests positive for the coronavirus
Taurean Prince has tested positive for the coronavirus and will now sit out of the NBA’s restart in Orlando.
The losing of Prince is yet another severe blow to an already lowly Nets team that will be without many of their key players heading into the NBA restart. On the season, he has averaged 29.0 minutes of playing time, 12.1 points, 6.0 rebounds, 1.8 assists, and .9 steals per game. With Prince out, look for Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot and Rodions Kurucs to get the chance to step-up for the team in a major way. With all the personnel losses suffered by the Nets, it will be interesting to see what this team will look like come competition time. For fantasy purposes, there may be a lot of available value; however, the chances of realizing it may present more of a challenge than merely identifying the next man up. It would be best to take a wait-and-see approach when trying to take advantage of this unfortunate circumstance.
