(Reuters) – The Washington Wizards placed guard Spencer Dinwiddie in the COVID-19 protocol hours before their Thursday night home game against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

On the bright side for Washington, three-time All-Star Bradley Beal, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Anthony Gill returned from the COVID list. All three players were considered questionable entering the game; Beal and Caldwell-Pope had not played since Dec. 18.

Dinwiddie joined six other Wizards in the protocol: Thomas Bryant, Rui Hachimura, Montrezl Harrell, Aaron Holiday, Raul Neto and Cassius Winston.

In addition, Davis Bertans was out Thursday with a non-COVID illness.

Dinwiddie is averaging 13.1 points, 5.6 assists and 5.0 rebounds in 29 games (all starts) in his first season with the Wizards.

Washington (17-17) had lost two straight games and nine of its past 12 before Thursday.
