The Nets have been one of the teams hit hardest by COVID-19. Spencer Dinwiddie, DeAndre Jordan, and Taurean Prince have all tested positive, and will not play in Orlando. Wilson Chandler has opted out as well, and the likes of Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving were already ruled out due to injuries.
Beasley was actually signed to help fill out the depleted roster, but now his status is in doubt. Regardless of whether he plays or not, the Nets will be virtually unrecognizable in Orlando.
