Spencer Dinwiddie (ankle) will be available to play Wednesday vs. Atlanta.

Dinwiddie has spent that past month on the sidelines, but he could see limited minutes in the rotation tonight. However, he's not a fantasy option in any league while Reggie Jackson is in uniform.

Spencer Dinwiddie (ankle) did some offensive work during Wednesday morning's shootaround.

Dinwiddie has yet to go through a full practice with the team, so it doesn't seem likely that he'll be available for tonight's game in San Antonio. Steve Blake will continue to earn all the backup point guard minutes with Dinwiddie on the sidelines, but that means very little in most leagues.

Stan Van Gundy revealed that Spencer Dinwiddie (ankle) may be dealing with a bone bruise.

Dinwiddie still isn't practicing as he awaits the swelling to go down, and SVG admitted the injury appears a little worse than originally believed. "I think he has a bone bruise in there, that’s the problem," Van Gundy said. "It’s not just the sprain (the trainers) originally thought. My understanding is what’s holding him back is the bone bruise." Without Dinwiddie, Steve Blake has no challenge for backup point guard minutes.

Spencer Dinwiddie (ankle) still isn't practicing with the team.

Coach Stan Van Gundy called the issue a bone bruise, but the Pistons won't be in a rush to bring him back. When Dinwiddie eventually returns, he will be competing with Steve Blake for the backup PG role. He's not on the fantasy radar.

Spencer Dinwiddie is still dealing with an unspecified ankle injury.

Dinwiddie was recalled from the D-League on Feb. 9 in order for the team to get a better look at his ankle injury, but there have been no real updates on his condition. While he's not a fantasy option in any league, Dinwiddie's continued absence means Steve Blake will continue to play the role of Reggie Jackson's backup.
Feb 22 - 9:19 AM

The Pistons have recalled Spencer Dinwiddie (ankle) from the D-League.

The move is purely procedure as Dinwiddie is dealing with an ankle injury and the Pistons want to let their doctors look at it. While Dinwiddie has potential, the Pistons are committed to leaving him in the D-League this season and he can be left on waivers in all fantasy leagues.
Feb 9 - 10:23 AM

Spencer Dinwiddie said that GM Jeff Bowers told him he would spend the remainder of the 2015-16 season in the D-League.

"I landed on red eye and was headed to the practice facility and [general manager] Jeff Bowers called me and said I was going down for the rest of the season, and I said OK," Dinwiddie said after Tuesday's practice. "There's nothing really more to say about it. A lot of people ask me for extended thoughts and I honestly just said, 'OK.'" Dinwiddie belongs on the wire in all formats.

Spencer Dinwiddie has been sent down for another D-League stint.

With the return of Brandon Jennings, Dinwiddie won't be a regular part of the rotation in Detroit. Leave him on the wire.
Jan 7 - 4:46 PM

Pistons recall G Spencer Dinwiddie from the D-League.

With Brandon Jennings (Achilles) on his way back, Dinwiddie's path to fantasy value with the Pistons is unlikely to be carved this season.

The Pistons assigned Spencer Dinwiddie and Darrun Hilliard to the D-League on Sunday.

Steve Blake has taken over as the backup point guard, so Dinwiddie will have to get his minutes in the D-League. Neither player is on the fantasy radar.

The Pistons assigned Spencer Dinwiddie and Darrun Hilliard to the D-League.

Neither player is in the rotation in Detroit, so this isn't a surprise. They are not on the fantasy radar.

Spencer Dinwiddie (sore left knee) was available to play on Sunday but he never left Detroit's bench.

It was Steve Blake (seven points, four assists in 18 minutes) who assumed the backup PG role tonight. Blake played well, but it's just as likely that Dinwiddie will resume his 15-18 minute role vs. Houston on Monday. Either way, neither guy is worth your attention in standard fantasy formats.

Spencer Dinwiddie (sore left knee) will be available to play Friday vs. the Thunder.

Dinwiddie is averaging just 16.3 minutes per game on the season to go with 6.3 points and 2.0 assists, so he's obviously not a factor in almost any league as a reserve. His return will take away minutes from Steve Blake, who is also a negligible fantasy option.
Fri, Nov 27, 2015 07:06:00 PM

Spencer Dinwiddie (sore left knee) participated in the Pistons' shootaround on Friday.

He should still be considered questionable for Friday's game vs. the Thunder, but this is a good sign that his injury isn't serious. Dinwiddie is only averaging minutes in the teens this season anyways, so fantasy owners can ignore this bit of news for now.
