The pandemic’s peak has passed (*knocks on wood*) but the coronavirus hasn’t gone away.
Nets backup point guard Goran Dragic has entered the league’s health and safety protocols and “doesn’t feel well,” coach Steve Nash said Saturday. Dragic is out vs. the Hawks and will miss more time as he recovers.
Updates to the Status Report for tonight’s game at Atlanta:
Brown (non-Covid illness) – OUT
Dragic (health and safety protocols) – OUT
Duke Jr. (G League – two-way) – AVAILABLE
Sharpe (G League assignment) – AVAILABLE

Steve Nash said Goran Dragic has symptoms of COVID-19 and isn’t feeling well. Bruce Brown however just has the flu, and hopes he can recover quickly. #Nets

Hopefully Dragic recovers quickly. Dragic will be out until he can be both symptom free and produce a couple of consecutive negative tests, and with the first play-in games 10 days away Dragic may be out for those games.
Dragic has averaged 7.3 points and 4.8 assists, playing 25.5 minutes per game in the 16 games since signing with Brooklyn after being bought out by the Raptors.
