CD-R TESTS POSITIVE FOR SWINE FLU


CD-R TESTS POSITIVE FOR SWINE FLU Bobby Simmons isn't going to lose sleep over the possibility of contracting swine flu from his teammate and locker neighbor Chris Douglas-Roberts.

"I went to the grocery store [yesterday] morning and there were a lot of people coughing in there, too," Simmons said before the Nets' 86-76 loss to the Celtics last night. "It's just something in the air. It's going on right now. It's just very serious."

Indeed, Simmons and the Nets know plenty about swine flu now, because Douglas-Roberts, their starting small forward, tested positive for it. Douglas-Roberts has missed the last two games and is receiving treatment.

A Nets spokesman said it is possible the forward could return as early as Wednesday against the 76ers.

"It just kind of depends what kind of progress he makes," coach Lawrence Frank said. "I spoke to him [yesterday]. He still has chills and all the symptoms of a really bad flu." Still, as Terrence Williams said: "If it was up to him, he would [have played] yesterday. . . . He wants to play Basketball at the end of the day."

The Nets have taken NBA-governed health precautions in the wake of Douglas-Roberts' illness, and the team has been prescribed Tamiflu, which they need to take daily for the next 10 days. According to the drug's Web site, it's "the number-one prescribed antiviral flu medicine" and can prevent the flu if you've been in contact with someone who has it.

"[Douglas-Roberts has] been quarantined and he's getting a lot better than he was the last couple days," Jarvis Hayes said. "So it'll be fine. We'll be fine."

For the Nets , it hurts to not have Douglas-Roberts, the second-year man who is averaging 15.6 points and 4.8 rebounds while shooting 47.5 percent from the field.

On Friday, the Nets started Trenton Hassell in Douglas-Roberts' spot. Last night they went with Simmons (10 points), while playing Hassell (3 points) at the two-guard.

"We need [Douglas-Roberts] back with us and we're just pulling for him, hoping that he can recover from it," Rafer Alston said. "But it does hit close to home when you find out one of your teammates has it."
