New York Nets forward Chris Douglas-Roberts has tested positive for the swine flu, according to Nets president Rod Thorn.
The second-year player out of Memphis had already been sidelined with flu-like symptoms.
“The word is out,” Douglas-Roberts tweeted moments ago. “Thank you all for your
concern. I stay positive though. Still got a beautiful smile on my face.“
The 6-7 forward is averaging 15.6 points and 4.8 rebounds through five games played this year.
