Brooklyn Nets forward Wilson Chandler has decided to sit out the NBA’s upcoming resumption of the season in Florida.

“As difficult as it will be to not be with my teammates, the health and well-being of my family has to come first,” Chandler told ESPN reporter Malika Andrews on Sunday. “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.”

Chandler played in 35 games for the Nets this season, posting averages of 5.9 points and 4.1 rebounds in 20.1 minutes. The 33-year-old forward is set to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

The Nets will enter the season comeback in the 7th seed with a record of 30-34.

Also, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the Nets are signing free-agent small forward Justin Anderson. 

Anderson, 26, played in three games for the Nets before the season was interrupted, averaging 5.6 minutes. Brooklyn is the four-year veteran's fourth team. He also played stints in Dallas, Philadelphia and Atlanta.
