Spencer Dinwiddie scored eight points with four rebounds, five assists, two steals and no turnovers in 23 minutes against the Nuggets on Friday.
He is the No. 2 point guard ahead of Isaiah Whitehead for now, but Jeremy Lin being back takes away most of the appeal for Dinwiddie. Leave him on the wire, especially with Lin expected to play on Saturday. Feb 25 - 2:22 AM

Spencer Dinwiddie scored a season-high 19 points and matched a season-high with eight assists in a defeat to the Bucks on Monday night.

Dinwiddie also chipped in five rebounds, two steals, one 3-pointer and didn't commit a single turnover. This is two impressive performances in a row from Dinwiddie, who scored 17 points and knocked down four 3-pointers on Monday. However, with Jeremy Lin (hamstring) on track to return to the Brooklyn lineup in the Nets first game back after the break, Dinwiddie will be bumped back to the bench and will see his playing time significantly reduced.
Feb 15 - 10:54 PM

Spencer Dinwiddie scored a season-high 17 points, with four treys, three rebounds, one assist and zero turnovers in 29 minutes in Monday's loss to the Grizzlies.

It was a nice bounceback game for Dinwiddie, who was held scoreless on Friday night vs. the Heat. However, coming into Monday, he was averaging just 4.0 points (while shooting 28.6 percent from the floor) and 4.0 assists in the Nets previous four games, so there is no need to grab him off the waiver wire until he consistently earns 25-plus minutes a night.
Feb 13 - 10:59 PM

Spencer Dinwiddie did not score in 19 minutes against the Heat on Friday, adding three rebounds, eight assists and two steals.

He did bang knees in this game, but Dinwiddie seems to be fine. Isaiah Whitehead was playing well earlier this month, but the rookie has fallen off lately. Dinwiddie could stick in the starting lineup, but it doesn't really matter for fantasy leagues.
Feb 10 - 11:04 PM

Spencer Dinwiddie scored seven points in a start against the Hornets on Tuesday, adding four assists, one steal and one triple.

He shot 2-of-5 from the field and 2-of-2 from the line in 23 minutes, but he didn't close the game and was outplayed by Isaiah Whitehead. The Nets have been rotating their starting point guards quite often, but both Dinwiddie and Whitehead will lose most of their value when Jeremy Lin (hamstring) returns anwyays. Dinwiddie is not a factor in standard leagues.
Feb 7 - 9:56 PM

Spencer Dwinwiddie will start Tuesday vs. Charlotte, sending Isaiah Whitehead back to the bench.

Whether starting or coming off the bench, neither of these guys have been much of a factor in fantasy hoops this season. Leave them on the wire.
Feb 7 - 6:13 PM

Spencer Dinwiddie scored 13 points with four rebounds, one assist, one block and three 3-pointers in 27 minutes against the Pacers on Friday.

Even with Isaiah Whitehead (shoulder) hurt in this game, Dinwiddie still didn't close despite being the only healthy point guard. With Whitehead saying he's fine, fantasy owners can ignore this one.
Feb 3 - 11:04 PM

Spencer Dinwiddie finished Wednesday's game with three points, two rebounds and two assists in 19 minutes, finishing 1-of-6 from the field.

"Spencer was struggling [on Monday], and I felt like Isaiah [Whitehead] was playing well,’’ coach Kenny Atkinson said, prior to mixing up his starting lineup tonight. Dinwiddie wasn't even a reliable option as a starter, and he belongs on the wire outside of deep leagues.

Spencer Dinwiddie will return to the bench for Wednesday's game against the Knicks, with Isaiah Whitehead getting the start.

As a reserve for the Nets this season, Dinwiddie owns forgettable averages of 5.1 points, 2.2 dimes and not much else on 44.1 percent shooting, and his minutes will likely fall back to the teens with the reserve role. He's not a great option in most settings.
Feb 1 - 6:01 PM

Spencer Dinwiddie posted 10 points, five boards, four assists and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes in another start for the Nets on Wednesday.

The third-year PG chipped in 13 points on 6-of-9 shooting with two assists, two boards and two blocks on Monday, despite the fact that Brooklyn got blown out. He outplayed Isaiah Whitehead (two points in 15 minutes) tonight and is worth a look in deeper leagues with Jeremy Lin (hamstring) nowhere near a return.
Jan 25 - 11:42 PM

Updating a previous report, Spencer Dinwiddie will start Monday vs. the Spurs.

The Nets will go with a Dinwiddie-Randy Foye starting backcourt, so Sean Kilpatrick is likely bound for the bench. To this point, Dinwiddie hasn't done enough as a starter to warrant a roster spot in any setting.
Jan 23 - 6:56 PM

Spencer Dinwiddie will come off the bench for Monday's game against the Spurs.

Randy Foye will get that start at point guard tonight, meaning that Dinwiddie and Isaiah Whitehead will be splitting the reserve minutes. Dinwiddie wasn't worth owning as a starter, and he'll only be worse as a reserve.
Jan 23 - 6:12 PM

Spencer Dinwiddie did not score in a start against the Hornets on Saturday with five rebounds, two assists and no turnovers in 23 minutes.

Starting Dinwiddie has probably run its course. In his last five starts, he's made just 28.6 percent from the field with averages of 5.0 points, 3.0 boards, 4.0 assists, 0.2 steals, 1.6 turnovers and 0.8 treys. His contract is guaranteed, but his minutes may start dropping now. Isaiah Whitehead looks a lot better, as well.
Jan 21 - 9:40 PM

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.
