Spencer Dinwiddie came off the bench again on Saturday for 12 points, five rebounds, four assists, two 3-pointers, one steal and one block in 31 minutes.
Allen Crabbe (illness) was out sick but the Nets once again opted to start Joe Harris over Dinwiddie. "I think Spencer is in a little bit of a rut ... offensively," coach Kenny Atkinson said before the game. '"Defensively he’s been very good. But sometimes you’ve got to tweak things ... Is this permanent? I have no idea." The Nets are 13th in the Eastern Conference with 12 games remaining, so permanence is a fluid concept -- fantasy owners can be satisfied that Dinwiddie is averaging 31.0 minutes over the past two games.

Spencer Dinwiddie scored 14 points with three rebounds, five assists and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes off the bench against the 76ers on Friday.

It was his first game off the bench since November. The move to the second unit was a success with a fast start and Dinwiddie also got the closing minutes over D'Angelo Russell. He'll still be able to find minutes in the 25-32 range basically every night, and now he can run the offense even more. He also did log minutes next to DAR, so Dinwiddie's fantasy owners should feel good about this move.

Spencer Dinwiddie will move to the bench against the 76ers on Friday.

This is a surprising move after Dinwiddie had been starting since November. He's really struggled next to D'Angelo Russell, but Dinwiddie said that is no excuse. he should still get some minutes tonight, but this is slightly bad news for him and Caris LeVert. Dinwiddie should still be owned.
Mar 16 - 5:40 PM

Spencer Dinwiddie scored six points and dished out a game-high 10 assists in 23 minutes before fouling out of Thursday's win over the Hornets.

Dinwiddie didn't grab a single rebound but did have one steal and a block. He has seen his scoring totals drop of late as he tries to find his rhythm playing alongside D’Angelo Russell. However, Dinwiddie has still been racking up the dimes. He's averaging 8.4 assists over his last five.
Mar 8 - 9:55 PM

Spencer Dinwiddie had 10 assists, five rebounds and three steals on Sunday, but he scored only six points on 0-of-6 field goals and 6-of-6 free throws.

Dinwiddie attempted one shot inside 16 feet tonight, which is an ongoing issue. "Spencer only had five drives [Thursday]," coach Kenny Atkinson said before the game. "He’s top 10 in the league in drives overall." Atkinson was suggesting that Dinwiddie lost his aggressive edge while playing alongside D'Angelo Russell, but fantasy owners can't be too upset thanks to his all-around contributions in 36 minutes of action tonight. More drives would be nice, but he also needs to make some perimeter shots -- he's a combined 3-of-23 over the past five games.

Spencer Dinwiddie scored eight points with six rebounds, five assists, two steals and one turnover in 36 minutes against the Kings on Thursday.

Even with the quiet game, he still had the ball in his hands to get two made free throws with six seconds left to get a two-point lead. His stats have taken a severe hit lately, averaging 9.6 points, 3.4 boards, 8.4 dimes, 1.0 steals and 1.4 treys over his previous five. Some of that could be due to D'Angelo Russell handling the ball more, but most of it is on Dinwiddie making just 32.7 percent from the field in his previous five. He'll heat up soon, so keep firing him up in all standard leagues.
Mar 2 - 12:47 AM

Coach Kenny Atkinson said he expects to see more lineups with Spencer Dinwiddie and D'Angelo Russell.

"I do like having two guards that can really handle the ball," Atkinson said. "Now, you’ve got to look at the other pieces and how they fit. Someone’s got to be out. One of our good wing players has got to be out if they’re going to play." This quote does sound like it's possible Russell gets a starting nod, which could bump Allen Crabbe or DeMarre Carroll. Dinwiddie should be busy regardless.

Spencer Dinwiddie won the Taco Bell Skills Challenge.

He beat Jamal Murray in the semifinal and Lauri Markkanen in the final to earn the trophy. Dinwiddie has been a serious candidate for Most Improved Player and arguably the best pickup in fantasy hoops. He's a great story and a Los Angeles kid, but Dinwiddie said the best part of his win was helping someone get a scholarship.
Feb 17 - 8:38 PM

Spencer Dinwiddie was busy in his 43 minutes during a 138-128 double-overtime loss to the Pelicans on Saturday, making 5-of-22 from the field for 24 points with four rebounds, 10 assists, three steals and two 3-pointers.

While he did struggle to make shots, he is completely locked in as the offense runs through him on the vast majority of possessions when he's out there. Dinwiddie actually had 25 potential assists on Wednesday, but his teammates couldn't make shots to get him to 11 dimes against the Pistons. Dinwiddie has to be a candidate for Most Improved Player right now and the Nets reportedly turned down a first-round pick to keep him. He's a starting NBA point guard and he's thriving in a PG-friendly system.
Feb 10 - 9:53 PM

The Nets are expected to field offers on Spencer Dinwiddie ahead of the deadline.

The Nets have done an excellent job with Dinwiddie's development, but his trade value may never be higher than it is right now, and he's an attractive trade chip with just $1.6 million due to him next season. If another team offers up a first-round pick for Dinwiddie, that could be enough for them to pull the trigger. A move outside of Brooklyn would assuredly be a negative for Dinwiddie's rest-of-season outlook, so hopefully, the Nets stand pat on Spencer.

Spencer Dinwiddie hit 5-of-7 shots (all 3-pointers) and 3-of-3 free throws for 18 points, three rebounds, nine assists and three steals in 25 minutes of Tuesday's loss to Houston.

If there were any concerns about D'Angelo Russell coming back and hurting Dinwiddie, they've yet to be realized. Russell played just 19 minutes tonight for 10 points and two assists, and Dinwiddie remains a must-start, must-own player until further notice.
Feb 6 - 11:43 PM

Spencer Dinwiddie scored 23 points with seven rebounds, nine assists and two 3-pointers during a 102-99 loss to the Lakers on Friday.

He came out with guns blazing to start the second half with a whopping 14 points in the first six minutes of the third quarter. Dinwiddie also played next to D'Angelo Russell more today and that combo is working. It's a super small sample in 10 minutes over the last two, but the DAR-Dinwiddie combo has a +51.0 net rating. Dinwiddie will be doing just fine.
Feb 2 - 11:01 PM

Spencer Dinwiddie recorded career-highs in free throws made (13) and attempted (15) on Wednesday, finishing with 27 points, four assists, two rebounds and two 3-pointers.

He shot 6-of-13 from the field and this is the first time all season that Dinwiddie and D'Angelo Russell have both scored 20+ points in the same game. Brooklyn has vowed to find minutes for Dinwiddie down the stretch, so this is further proof that they're serious.
Jan 31 - 11:33 PM

Spencer Dinwiddie finished with six points, 10 assists and two rebounds over 33 minutes in Saturday's 111-97 loss at Minnesota.

Dinwiddie was given as many minutes as he could handle with D'Angelo Russell (rest) and Caris LeVert (groin) on the shelf. However, Dinwiddie managed to go just 3-of-9 from the field, including 0-of-4 from behind the 3-point line. At least he salvaged the stat line with the 10 dimes. Russell is likely to return Tuesday in New York, although Dinwiddie should still see plenty of time.
Jan 28 - 12:12 AM

Spencer Dinwiddie exacted some revenge vs. the Pistons on Sunday, hitting a game-winner in the paint to finish with 22 points, five assists, four rebounds and four 3-pointers.

The Nets blew a lead in the fourth quarter tonight, but Dinwiddie bailed them out by navigating two defenders to sink a tough, leaning shot in the lane (see link below). He made 9-of-13 shots tonight and we haven't seen his role decrease with D'Angelo Russell active. The Nets seem eager to find him minutes and he's worth holding in all leagues as we watch how his role evolves.
