Jordan confirmed his positive test on Twitter and said he would not return to action when the season resumes on July 30 at Disney World in Orlando, Florida.

The NBA had previously reported 16 positives out of 302 players tested on June 23 but did not disclose their identities.

Players are set to begin travelling to Orlando on July 7.
