Taureans Prince’s absence will be felt by the Nets, who currently hold the No. 7 seed in the Eastern Conference.

Brooklyn Nets forward Taurean Prince tested positive for COVID-19 and will sit out the NBA's restart in Orlando, per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Prince is the seventh Nets player who will not travel with the team to Orlando, joining Kyrie Irving (shoulder), Kevin Durant (Achilles), Spencer Dinwiddie (coronavirus), DeAndre Jordan (coronavirus), Wilson Chandler (opted out) and rookie Nic Claxton (shoulder surgery).

In his first season with the Nets, Prince averaged 12.1 points and a career-high 6.0 rebounds in 64 games.

Brooklyn enters the restart as the No. 7 seed in the East, with No. 8 seed Orlando a half game back.
