The Nets have announced, via press release, that swingman Chris Douglas-Roberts has tested positive for the H1N1 virus:

"Douglas-Roberts has been treated accordingly for the illness and the Nets have followed all precautionary measures as mandated by NBA guidelines."

CDR had been one of the lone bright spots during the team's 0-5 start by putting up 15.6 ppg and 4.8 rpg. Douglas-Roberts has even made three of five 3-pointers -- a skill he's working hard to improve.

The illness should put further pressure on rookie Terrence Williams who has spent time at every position this season. Williams is averaging 10.3 ppg and 4.7 rpg -- numbers that have largely come in the absence of veterans Devin Harris, Tony Battie, Jarvis Hayes, Keyon Dooling and Yi Jianlian.

New Jersey has not set a date for Douglas-Roberts' return.

That sucks hopefully he didn't give it to anyone else on his team or anyone they played. Just when you thought the Nets couldn't get any worse, they just did. At least Lopez is healthy. :shrug:

Dont worry New Jersey fans, John Wall will come to the rescue next year.

Is he the first NBA player to get it?
If so, then it's pretty big news.
I thought the Cavs had it though.
