G - BKN - OUT
Spencer Dinwiddie, per Manhattan Orthopedic Care founder Dr. Armin Tehrany, has seemingly eliminated any chance of returning this season due to his ACL reconstruction procedure.
In the case of Dinwiddie’s partially torn ACL, the best course of action for long-term health was to opt for a reconstruction procedure versus a repair, which carries up to a 20.0 percent failure rate. The Nets will have a difficult time accounting for the versatility he brought to the rotation. Look for Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot to see a continued uptick in minutes in the rotation as a starter. He can safely stay on waivers at this time; however, he may be a viable flier in DFS formats depending on slate size and available value.
Nets' guard Spencer Dinwiddie has been diagnosed with a partially torn ACL in his right knee and will miss the remainder of the 2020-2021 season.
This is a major blow to the Nets as Dinwiddie started alongside Kevin Durant and Kyrie irving to begin the year. He will now look to begin rehab and is expected to make a full recovery before the start of next season. Caris LeVert will likely slide into the starting lineup in Dinwiddie's absence.
Nets SG Spencer Dinwiddie went to the locker room early with a knee strain and has been ruled out the remainder of Sunday’s game against the Magic.
Dinwiddie hurt his knee in the third quarter and headed to the locker room. The severity of his knee injury is unknown at this time and an update will be provided after the game. Dinwiddie provided five points (2-4 FG, 1-2 3PT) with four rebounds and three assists across 15 minutes before exiting.
According to The Athletic, Brooklyn Nets G Spencer Dinwiddie will not participate in the Orlando restart after testing positive for coronavirus last week.
This is a major blow for the Brooklyn Nets who are currently the 7th seed in the Eastern Conference. Caris LeVert will likely be the greatest beneficiary to Dinwiddie's absence but the Nets chances of making it through the playoffs are looking bleak. Dinwiddie's season will end averaging 20.6 points, 6.8 assists, and 3.7 rebounds, which are all career-highs for the six-year guard.
Nets G Spencer Dinwiddie provided an update on his COVID-19 symptoms and is hopeful to get a negative test Monday and be back on the court Tuesday to be able to travel with the team to Orlando.
Dinwiddie took to Twitter Sunday night to provide us with an update on his coronavirus symptoms. He said the sinus headaches have subsided but he “was a lil too bullish on the bike, got dizzy and felt weak.” Dinwiddie tested positive last week for COVID-19, and tonight was his Day 10 update on how he’s feeling. With Kyrie Irving, Kevin Durant, DeAndre Jordan, and Wilson Chandler all sitting out for the remainder of the 2019-20 season, it’s imperative the Nets have a healthy Dinwiddie if they want to compete. Hopefully he’ll record a negative test tomorrow and be back on the court Tuesday.
