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. Jan 12 - 6:50 PM

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.

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.

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.

Spencer Dinwiddie (sore left knee) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Heat.

Steve Blake will act as Detroit's backup point guard with Dinwiddie sidelined, but he won't get enough minutes to matter in most leagues.
Wed, Nov 25, 2015 06:25:00 PM

Spencer Dinwiddie could again see extended minutes during Tuesday's game against the Cavs.

Dinwiddie went through Tuesday's shootaround as the backup point guard, and it looks like Stan Van Gundy is ready to give the second-year guard some increased opportunity with how badly Steve Blake has struggled this season. That being said, Dinwiddie is unlikely to exceed the 20-minute mark as a reserve, so there's no reason to give him a second thought in standard fantasy leagues.

Spencer Dinwiddie looked great in 24 minutes off the bench vs. the Lakers, posting 17 points (6-of-9 FGs, 4-of-5 FTs) with one 3-pointer, two boards and four assists.

Dinwiddie had one seven-minute appearance prior to this game, but Stan Van Gundy was consciously going deeper into his rotation to give his starters some rest tonight. He played well enough to earn minutes going forward, but is unlikely to have standard-league relevance while Reggie Jackson and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope are healthy.

Stan Van Gundy praised Spencer Dinwiddie's improvement during the preseason.

I’ve been happy with him. He’s played a lot better," Van Gundy said. "I thought early in the preseason he was not real solid. He was very up and down. But over the last four games, I think he was good." Expected to serve as the third point guard behind Reggie Jackson and Steve Blake, Dinwiddie will have a hard time finding minutes on any kind of regular basis. Don't forget that Brandon Jennings' (Achilles) return is looming, as well.

Spencer Dinwiddie will start at point guard for the Pistons on Tuesday.

With Reggie Jackson (Achilles) out for a few days, Dinwiddie will see all the minutes he can handle against the Pacers on Tuesday. Dinwiddie doesn't have much fantasy value in standard leagues, but he could see a value boost to start the regular season if Reggie Jackson's injury turns out to be worse than expected.

Pistons' head coach Stan Van Gundy said that he believes Spencer Dinwiddie can emerge as a "really good, young player" for Detroit.

"We like Spencer and we think he’s got a chance to be a really good, young player," said Van Gundy. Dinwiddie could be one of the first guards off the bench as Brandon Jennings recovers from his Achilles injury, although he'll first need to earn his minutes over veteran Steve Blake. Dinwiddie is talented, but the situation he's in isn't great for his fantasy value, so he can be ignored in most leagues on draft day.

Spencer Dinwiddie said that he is hoping to protect the ball a lot better next season.

"The most disappointing thing was my turnovers; I had too many," Dinwiddie said of his performance last season. "I didn’t shoot the ball as well as I would’ve liked. Last season my assist-to-turnover ratio was 3 to 1, so that’s a bigger sample size then the summer league games. I’m a confident guy. My plan is to go into camp and be the best player on the floor. Obviously we have Reggie [Jackson] and he’s our franchise player, so being the best player on the floor hopefully would give me the backup spot." Brandon Jennings (Achilles) may not be ready for opening night, so Dinwiddie will have to battle with Steve Blake for the backup PG slot.
