Dinwiddie had primarily been used as a reserve before his injury, coming off the bench in 45 of his 49 appearances. He was a key reserve, however, averaging over 17 points per game and making him the team’s second-leading scorer.
The Nets also just got guard Caris LeVert back, and are well-positioned down the stretch to solidify their playoff positioning. They’re a team worth watching down the stretch.
