Spencer Dinwiddie went off for a career-high 26 points (9-of-17 FGs, 4-of-5 FTs) in Thursday's loss to the Knicks.
He also flirted with a triple-double, finishing with seven assists, seven rebounds, one steal, one block and four 3-pointers in 35 minutes. The Nets have a gem on their hands and Dinwiddie has quickly become one of the team's best building blocks for the future. He should be considered a frontrunner for the waiver-wire pickup of the year and will maintain some nice value if/when D'Angelo Russell (knee) returns. Dec 14 - 10:46 PM

Spencer Dinwiddie double-doubled in Tuesday's 103-98 win over the Wizards, scoring 11 points with 12 assists, six rebounds, two steals, one block and one triple in 32 minutes.

Dinwiddie's efficiency is still an issue and he hit just 4-of-14 shots and 2-of-4 free throws (he also took 11 3-pointers), but he continues to put up solid numbers across the board. Even if you include his foul-plagued dud against the Thunder, he's averaging an impressive 11.8 points, 8.6 assists, 4.4 rebounds, 0.8 blocks, 0.6 steals and 2.2 triples over his last five. He's a building block for the Nets and should continue to get big minutes even when D'Angelo Russell (knee) eventually comes back.
Dec 12 - 11:29 PM

Spencer Dinwiddie got into early foul trouble but played well in the fourth quarter to finish with five points, four rebounds, seven assists and a 3-pointer in just 19 minutes.

At one point in the third quarter Dinwiddie was sitting on zero points, five fouls and 11 minutes, but at least he finished strong to salvage a fantasy line. He'll be fine, at least until D'Angelo Russell is back. The Nets overcame a 16-point deficit to beat the Thunder 100-95, marking their biggest comeback win since Nov of 2016.
Dec 8 - 12:51 AM

Spencer Dinwiddie scored 15 points with six rebounds, nine assists, three blocks and three 3-pointers in 30 minutes against the Hawks on Saturday during a 114-102 loss.

The Nets couldn't pull this one out as they've failed to win consecutive games since the third game of the season. Coach Kenny Atkinson also pulled his guys somewhat early to go to garbage time. As for Dinwiddie, he is just cruising along as a top-50 player since D'Angelo Russell (knee) went down, averaging 16.2 points, 3.3 boards, 8.0 assists, 1.0 blocks, 0.6 steals and 2.6 treys in his last nine. He should be owned in all leagues and should still have decent value when DAR gets back.
Dec 2 - 5:45 PM

Spencer Dinwiddie dished out seven assists in 33 minutes on Sunday, while tying his career high with two blocks, adding nine points, two rebounds and one 3-pointer.

Dinwiddie navigated foul trouble and managed to please most fantasy owners despite going 2-of-10 from the field and 4-of-6 from the line. The Nets used their 9th unique starting lineup of the season tonight, and had to get even more creative after halftime with Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (ankle) unavailable. Regardless of who else is starting, Dinwiddie is a linchpin of the rotation.
Nov 26 - 9:17 PM

Spencer Dinwiddie scored 23 points with four rebounds, six assists, one block, one steal, four 3-pointers and no turnovers in 31 minutes during a 127-125 loss to the Blazers on Friday.

The zero turnovers is impressive and he almost hit a would-be, game-winning triple, but it was short after the Nets got off to a fast start today. Besides an eight-point dud on Wednesday, Dinwiddie has been cooking with gas over his last four with three 21-plus scoring games to go with some full stat lines, averaging 19.3 points, 3.0 boards, 8.0 assists, 1.3 steals and 3.5 treys on 46.3 percent from the field over those four. He should be a difference maker in all leagues for the next month and possibly beyond.
Nov 24 - 2:47 PM

Spencer Dinwiddie chipped in eight points, 10 assists, one rebound, one steal, one block and a pair of 3-pointers during a road loss vs. the Cavs on Wednesday.

D'Angelo Russell (knee surgery) is out indefinitely, and Jeremy Lin (knee) is already done for the season, which means Dinwiddie should be owned in all but the shallowest leagues. We were hoping for more scoring tonight, since Jose Calderon was defending him, but the 3-pointers and defensive stats make it a decent line for roto.
Nov 22 - 9:55 PM

Spencer Dinwiddie had 21 points (4-of-13 FGs, 11-of-13 FTs), eight assists, two rebounds, two 3-pointers, one steal and one block in a home loss vs. Golden State on Sunday.

D'Angelo Russell (left knee) had arthroscopic surgery on Friday and the Nets haven't pegged a specific timetable for his return, so Dinwiddie should be starting for the foreseeable future. He was coming off a career-best 25-point game on Friday, and has earned the trust of coach Kenny Atkinson. "He’s an aggressive, confident guy," Atkinson said. "He’s definitely got the intelligence, the IQ. I love that he’s doing it on both ends." Double-check that he's not still floating on your waiver wire.

Nov 19 - 9:08 PM

Spencer Dinwiddie exploded during a 118-107 win over the Jazz on Friday, scoring a career-high 25 points with five rebounds, eight assists, two steals, six 3-pointers and no turnovers.

We'll save you the time to start this blurb: Dinwiddie needs to be added everywhere. He is the first player in franchise history to record 25-plus points, six-plus 3-pointers made and eight-plus assists with no turnovers in a game. D'Angelo Russell (knee) is expected to miss a good amount of time, so Dinwiddie has the keys to one of the most fantasy-friendly systems out there. He is going to be a difference maker until DAR is back, which could be a long while.
Nov 18 - 12:10 AM

Spencer Dinwiddie started at point guard and double-doubled with 12 points and 11 assists in Tuesday's loss to Boston.

Dinwiddie didn't play against the Jazz on Saturday due to a hamstring injury, but it's a really good sign that he was able to play 34 minutes. His shot wasn't falling (4-of-14 FGs, 3-of-5 FTs), but Dinwiddie made some really nice plays and added four rebounds with one block and one 3-pointer. D'Angelo Russell (knee) is expected to miss "several games" even though coach Kenny Atkinson said he's day-to-day, so Dinwiddie could have some really nice short-term value if you can live with his rough field goal percentage.

Spencer Dinwiddie, Allen Crabbe, DeMarre Carroll, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Trevor Booker will start vs. the Celtics on Tuesday.

Dinwiddie was the suspected D'Angelo Russell replacement, but it's interesting that Booker will be replacing Timofey Mozgov in the starting five tonight. As for Dinwiddie, he's played well in limited minutes (22.3) this season with averages of 9.8 points, 4.9 dimes, 1.5 triples and just 1.1 turnovers per contest, so he's certainly someone to consider throwing out there in daily leagues.

Spencer Dinwiddie (hamstring) is expected to start Tuesday vs. the Celtics.

Dinwiddie missed Saturday's game with a minor hamstring issue, but with D'Angelo Russell (knee) going down, Dinwiddie will power through his injury and try and help fill the void left by D-Lo. Dinwiddie has been sneaky good this season with averages of 9.8 points, 1.5 triples, 4.9 dimes, 0.9 steals and 1.1 turnovers per contest in 22.3 minutes a night, so if you're okay with some up-and-down shooting (38.4 FG%), Dinwiddie is worth a speculative pickup.
Nov 13 - 3:22 PM

Spencer Dinwiddie (hamstring) will not play against the Jazz on Saturday and Trevor Booker (back) is available.

We should see Isaiah Whitehead in the rotation tonight while the Nets wings should also be getting more run after Dinwiddie has played next to D'Angelo Russell more these days. Dinwiddie fantasy owners should still hold him.
Nov 11 - 7:25 PM

Spencer Dinwiddie (right hamstring tightness) is questionable to play against the Jazz on Saturday.

The Nets are one of the most cautious teams in the NBA, so there's a very really chance Dinwiddie can't give it a go. If he's out, Isaiah Whitehead would be moving into the rotation as the backup point guard. Plus, Dinwiddie has played around 5-8 minutes per game next to D'Angelo Russell, so that means more playing time for Caris LeVert, Allen Crabbe and Joe Harris.
Nov 11 - 2:28 PM

Spencer Dinwiddie scored nine points with three rebounds, three assists and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes against the Blazers on Friday.

He did play a few minutes next to D'Angelo Russell, which is something coach Kenny Atkinson wants to see more of. Dinwiddie has actually been at his best in the second unit and he's still getting minutes in the low 20s almost every night. He hasn't been as good as earlier this month, but he does have value if you need PG stats.
