Dinwiddie had six points (2-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-4 FT), three assists, and two rebounds in 16 minutes during the Pistons' 99-93 loss to the Heat on Tuesday. Dinwiddie has been available to return from a sprained ankle and bone bruise since mid-March, but this was just the second time he has seen the floor since then. He has appeared in two of the last four games for the Pistons, and Reggie Jackson (abdominal) is likely to rest again in Wednesday's season finale. As a result, Dinwiddie might get some decent burn behind Steve Blake before ultimately dropping back out of the rotation for the playoffs.
Dinwiddie (ankle) will play Wednesday night against the Hawks, Keith Langlois of Pistons.com reports. Dinwiddie has been dealing with both a sprained ankle and a bone bruise for the past month, as well as playing for the Grand Rapids Drive of the D-League in February. Now that he is back in the mix with the Pistons, look for him to share minutes off the bench with Steve Blake and Darrun Hilliard.
Dinwiddie (ankle) remained on the sideline for practice Thursday, Keith Langlois of Pistons.com reports. Dinwiddie rejoined the Pistons from the D-League's Grand Rapids Drive earlier in February after spraining his right ankle, and it looks like he still remains under evaluation. Once he's healthy enough to practice again, he'll likely only remain with the Pistons for a few days before reporting back to the D-League squad.
Dinwiddie was recalled from the D-League's Grand Rapids Drive on Tuesday, Keith Langlois of Pistons.com reports. The Pistons aren't bringing Dinwiddie back to get a closer look at him in the team's rotation; instead, the second-year guard is just being examined by team doctors after he suffered a sprained ankle while playing in the D-League. Once the team determines the severity of the issue, Dinwiddie will likely report back to Grand Rapids.
Dinwiddie is expected to remain with the D-League's Grand Rapids Drive for much of January, Keith Langlois of Pistons.com reports. With Brandon Jennings (Achilles) returning since the end of December and Steve Blake still around as a third-string option behind starting point guard Reggie Jackson, there's not much incentive for Dinwiddie to stick with the Pistons. He'll likely need an injury or two to hit the backcourt before a rotation spot opens up.
