Spencer Dinwiddie earned another start on Sunday despite the return of Isaiah Whitehead (knee), going scoreless on 0-of-3 shooting with eight assists and two rebounds in 24 minutes.
The Nets announced their starting lineup well after the 6pm start time, frustrating owners who were hoping to rely on Dinwiddie or Whitehead, though neither guy did much tonight. Dinwiddie's assists were nice, and he might have played more if he weren't in foul trouble, but with Whitehead active he's a dubious option in any format. Jan 15 - 9:12 PM

Spencer Dinwiddie scored 10 points with five rebounds, three assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 28 minutes during his start against the Raptors on Friday.

He played well enough to keep Randy Foye at bay in this game -- Foye played really well. Dinwiddie should continue to start while Isaiah Whitehead (knee) is out, but the rookie guard is only day-to-day. There's little reason to add Dinwiddie in most leagues unless you're streaming for Sunday.
Jan 13 - 10:52 PM

Spencer Dinwiddie will start for Isaiah Whitehead (knee) against the Raptors on Friday night.

We saw Whitehead suffer an injury on Thursday and not return. After that, Dinwiddie had a tough time against the Pelicans and the Nets actually went with a no-PG lineup to close out. One thing that helps Dinwiddie is that the Nets were a disaster late in the game, so Dinwiddie should be looking at heavy minutes tonight. Sean Kilpatrick will likely be the backup point guard, which opens up more minutes for Caris LeVert and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson off the bench. Dinwiddie makes sense as a value play in DFS.
Jan 13 - 6:19 PM

Spencer Dinwiddie did not score in 25 minutes against the Pelicans on Thursday, adding seven rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block.

He missed all five shots from the field and the Nets went without a point guard to close this game out. Isaiah Whitehead (knee) did not finish this game and could miss time going forward. Dinwiddie is currently the only healthy point guard on the roster, so he has a great chance to start on Friday. If you need a point guard in a deep league, give him a speculative add for short-term value.

Spencer Dinwiddie will come off the bench on Sunday vs. the 76ers.

He drew the start on Friday vs. the Cavs and finished with seven points, five rebounds, two assists and two turnovers in 18 minutes, but that's likely because the Nets wanted to get a look at him before his deal became guaranteed on Saturday. Dinwiddie has very little fantasy value.
Jan 8 - 11:41 AM

Spencer Dinwiddie started on Friday against the Cavs, finishing with seven points, five rebounds, two assists and two turnovers in 18 minutes.

Not good. He picked up three fouls in the first six minutes and could never get it going. Dinwiddie may not have his contract guaranteed next week, so he's not really worth a pickup in most leagues.
Jan 6 - 11:22 PM

Spencer Dinwiddie will start on Friday night against the Cavs.

Well, that big Thursday game was not a fluke apparently and the Nets will give him a serious look. The NBA starting its 10-day contracts may be the reasoning, but Dinwiddie has a great chance at 30 minutes tonight after logging 32 minutes on Thursday. His season long appeal isn't the greatest, but give him a look in DFS.
Jan 6 - 6:52 PM

Spencer Dinwiddie had his best game of the season on Thursday with 13 points, three rebounds, three assists, one steal, two blocks and one 3-pointer.

His 32 minutes were a season high. Besides Isaiah Whitehead not playing well, the Nets may have given Dinwiddie an extended look tonight. The 10-day contracts start today, so maybe they wanted to see how far along he was and see if he was worth keeping -- he stepped up. We'll see what happens on Friday, but Dinwiddie is only worth a look in very deep leagues, of course.
Jan 5 - 9:45 PM

Spencer Dinwiddie is inactive for Monday's game vs. Charlotte.

The Nets are healthy at point guard, so there is really no need for Dinwiddie's services.
Mon, Dec 26, 2016 06:54:00 PM

Point guard Spencer Dinwiddie played 22 minutes off the Nets bench on Tuesday, finishing with 14 points, four rebounds and one assist.

Isaiah Whitehead was on the bench in street clothes due to a foot injury tonight, while Jeremy Lin was back in the starting five. This was Dinwiddie's second appearance in a Nets uniform this season and both of them came in blowout losses. He would have likely played either way tonight, but only because Whitehead was hurt, so don't expect to see much of Dinwiddie going forward.

Nets sign G Spencer Dinwiddie.

He was an interesting prospect in the 2014 draft, but the ACL tear caused him to slide to the second round. Dinwiddie did turn some heads with the Bulls in the preseason and even had a 19-point game. He also took some minutes away from Reggie Jackson at times last season. All that said, he may not get minutes.
Thu, Dec 8, 2016 04:25:00 PM

Spencer Dinwiddie has signed a deal to play with the Bulls affiliate in the D-League.

Dinwiddie will play with the WC Bulls after being waived by the Chicago Bulls and won't have any fantasy value for the 2016-17 season.

Bulls waive G Spencer Dinwiddie.

The writing was on the wall on Thursday with Dinwiddie getting bumped from the rotation due to the Michael Carter-Williams deal. The former Piston looked good at times this month and even dropped a 19-pointer, so expect him to sign on somewhere else.
Fri, Oct 21, 2016 02:49:00 PM

Spencer Dinwiddie, Dwyane Wade, Jimmy Butler, Bobby Portis and Robin Lopez will start on Saturday.

Rajon Rondo appears to be getting the night off here. Dinwiddie was terrific on Thursday with 19 points, so he could gain some more ground as the backup point guard over Jerian Grant.
Sat, Oct 8, 2016 07:26:00 PM

Spencer Dinwiddie scored 19 points with six rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and no turnovers in 23 minutes against the Pacers on Thursday.

It's looking like a really nice signing for the Bulls. Dinwiddie is going to battle with Jerian Grant for the backup point guard spot, and the former Piston may have a leg up right now. Just keep an eye on him this preseason. Grant did not score in nine minutes tonight.
