The finalists for the 2017-18 Most Improved Player award are Spencer Dinwiddie, Clint Capela and Victor Oladipo.
Domantas Sabonis and Steven Adams are notable exclusions from the list, but it's hard to argue with the three finalists. As strong as Capela and Dinwiddie were this year, it's almost a given that Oladipo will go home with the award. The Nets will undoubtedly retain Dinwiddie by guaranteeing his $1.7 million salary for the 2018-19 season, but he's not a lock to duplicate his top-100 fantasy finish -- a lot depends on Jeremy Lin's health, and the Nets' willingness to run small-ball lineups with Lin, Dinwiddie and D'Angelo Russell.

Spencer Dinwiddie (sore right knee) has been ruled out for Wednesday's regular-season finale against the Celtics.

He'll join DeMarre Carroll (hip) and Joe Harris (ankle) on the sidelines tonight, which should result in more minutes for guys like Caris LeVert and Nik Stauskas, and LeVert might end up starting tonight. Stauskas might be someone to think about as a low-end, 3-point streamer, but it's LeVert who you'd want to go after as a DFS punt play.
Apr 11 - 11:51 AM

Spencer Dinwiddie started in place of Joe Harris (ankle) on Monday and hit 6-of-13 shots and three 3-pointers for 20 points, three boards and seven assists in 36 minutes of a 114-106 win over the Bulls.

He's been a bit disappointing off the bench, but was back in form and the starting lineup tonight. Maybe he'll get another start in Wednesday's finale, and if it happens, fantasy owners will want to consider using him against the Celtics in that one.
Apr 9 - 9:52 PM

Spencer Dinwiddie is starting on Monday vs. the Bulls.

Joe Harris (ankle) is sitting this one out, so Dinwiddie will start alongside D'Angelo Russell, Allen Crabbe, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Jarrett Allen. The Nets have a -12.9 net rating when Dinwiddie and Russell share the floor, but this is a great spot for them to produce.
Apr 9 - 6:51 PM

Spencer Dinwiddie scored nine points with two rebounds, six assists and two 3-pointers in 25 minutes off the bench against the Bucks on Thursday.

Maybe Dinwiddie could've had a shot to take his starting job back, but D'Angelo Russell had a strong start today after a rough three-game stretch. Dinwiddie should still be worth owning in standard leagues.
Apr 5 - 11:17 PM

Spencer Dinwiddie came off the bench to finish with 12 points and a team-high 12 assists with three steals Saturday in Miami.

Dinwiddie took advantage of the bench of D'Angelo Russell, who had an atrocious scoreless performance with two turnovers and an 0-of-5 shooting night. It was his first double-double since Feb. 27, and his most dimes since he doled out 13 in a game against San Antonio back on Jan. 17. If Russell is in Kenny Atkinson's doghouse, it might mean extra run for Dinwiddie for the rest of the regular season. We'll see how the situation shapes up Sunday when the Pistons visit.
Mar 31 - 11:20 PM

Spencer Dinwiddie started the second half over D'Angelo Russell against the Heat on Saturday.

Russell did not play well at all and Dinwiddie had been in control of the offense, so coach Kenny Atkinson may just be trying something new.
Mar 31 - 9:38 PM

Spencer Dinwiddie scored 16 points on 5-of-11 shooting Sunday, to go with four boards, three triples, two assists, one steal and zero turnovers in 24 minutes off the bench.

Dinwiddie finally had a good game with D’Angelo Russell in foul trouble, but it’s been a struggle for him more often than not since being demoted to the second unit. Over the past six games, Dinwiddie has offered up meager averages of 11.5 points, 3.8 dimes, 1.3 triples and 1.5 turnovers per game on 45.7% shooting. Maybe he’ll be able to get things back on track after today’s decent game, but we’re not optimistic.
Mar 25 - 4:33 PM

Spencer Dinwiddie had a night to forget vs. the Raptors on Friday, scoring five points with four assists, two rebounds and one steal in 24 minutes.

He was just 1-of-3 from the field and also hit an uncharacteristic 3-of-8 from the line -- he was hitting 83.3% from the line prior to Friday. The Nets seem content with D'Angelo Russell running the show and Dinwiddie has now come off the bench in five straight games, averaging 10.6 points, 4.2 assists, 2.8 rebounds, 1.0 triples and 1.8 turnovers in 27.2 minutes per game. The Workload is still there and there's a good chance he gets it going against Cleveland's leaky defense on Sunday.
Mar 23 - 11:10 PM

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.

Mar 17 - 10:31 PM

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.
Mar 16 - 10:14 PM

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.

Mar 5 - 12:20 AM

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.
