Three Mavericks players unavailable vs Orlando after a positive COVID-19 test

Brunson, Finney-Smith and Richardson are listed out for game against Magic due to the NBA's health and safety protocols.

Three Dallas Mavericks rotation players remained in Denver when the team returned from its trip after one of them tested positive for COVID-19, as reported by ESPN and The Athletic. Guard Jalen Brunson, forward Dorian Finney-Smith and guard Josh Richardson are listed as out for Saturday’s home game against the Orlando Magic due to the NBA’s health and safety protocols.

Dallas’ injury report does not specify which of the players tested positive. The other two are sidelined due to contact tracing, which requires players to quarantine for seven days before being cleared to return if they continue to test negative for the coronavirus, meaning they will miss a minimum of three games.
