Spencer Dinwiddie may try to play through injury, postpone surgery

Spencer Dinwiddie

Spencer Dinwiddie has a finger injury but may try to play through it.

The Brooklyn Nets guard has a right thumb injury and has been receiving medical evaluations. A report this week said he was likely facing a 4-6 week injury timetable, but Brooklyn’s coach says Dinwiddie may delay surgery.

Though Dinwiddie trying to tough out the injury would be impressive, it would not be unprecedented. Kobe Bryant for one was famous for playing through finger injuries and even advised Steph Curry two years ago on how to do so. If Dinwiddie were to do so, it would be painful but perhaps worth it as the Nets try to stay in the playoff race.

Brooklyn is 26-23 and in the sixth spot in the East.
