Spencer Dinwiddie Tests Positive For COVID-19 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Tue Jun 30, 2020 12:44 am

Spencer Dinwiddie has tested positive for COVID-19, which puts his status for the NBA's restart in Orlando in doubt.


“Over the past few months, I have been diligent about protecting myself and others from COVID-19 by following all designated protocol and quarantining,” Dinwiddie, 27, told The Athletic. “I was ready and prepared to rejoin my teammates as we were to be an early entry team in the resumed season. I flew private to return to New York, passed multiple COVID-19 tests over my first several days in New York and was able to participate in a couple practices within the first week.


“Originally, we were supposed to be one of the teams to enter into the Orlando bubble early, but training camp got switched back to New York and unfortunately I am now positive. Given that I have experienced symptoms, including fever and chest tightness, it is unclear on whether or not I’ll be able to participate in Orlando.


“Hindsight is 20/20.”

I know the NBA is doing everything they can to make it safe, but it's not going to work. You can't seal this thing off. I give this 2019-20 season less than a 20% chance of completing.

I know of couples that are in close quarters with eachother just as any normal couple and one person test positive and the other negative. This is odd as you would think both would have covid if they are still together sleeping eating and watching tv together.

I also know of someone who submitted a swab test with no sample and it came up positive. How can a clean swab without a sample turn up positive. Sometime isn’t right...
