Dinwiddie (knee) has been fully cleared for all basketball activities, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. The guard has recovered from a partial ACL tear in just over five months and will enter free agency this offseason. Over the past four seasons, he's averaged 16.2 points, 5.9 assists and 3.1 rebounds in 29.2 minutes per game. Next year will mark his age 28 season.
Dinwiddie (knee) plans to decline the $12.3 million player option on his 2021-22 contract and become an unrestricted free agent, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Dinwiddie, who has been sidelined since late December due to an ACL tear, has a Monday deadline to make an official decision on the option. The 28-year-old guard could look for a roster spot elsewhere after appearing in just three games for Brooklyn during the 2020-21 season. Dinwiddie is expected to be close to full strength for the start of the 2021-22 season.
Dinwiddie (knee) underwent successful surgery Monday to repair his partially torn right ACL, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. Dinwiddie will begin rehabbing next week, and while he'll miss the rest of the 2020-21 campaign, he should be at full strength for the start of next season. Since Dinwiddie went down, the Nets have turned to Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot as the fifth starter alongside Kyrie Irving, Joe Harris, Kevin Durant and DeAndre Jordan.
The Nets announced Monday that Dinwiddie (knee) will undergo season-ending surgery next week. Dinwiddie will require a procedure after he was diagnosed with a partial ACL tear in his right knee following his early departure in Sunday's loss to the Hornets. The 27-year-old is expected to be back to full health by the time NBA training camps open up ahead of the upcoming season, which could prompt Dinwiddie to decline his $12.3 million player option for 2021-22 and try his luck in free agency. As for the Nets, the loss of Dinwiddie will likely free up some more playing time for Landry Shamet, Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot and Taurean Prince.
Dinwiddie will miss the remainder of the 2020-21 season after he was diagnosed with a partial ACL tear in his right knee following his exit from Sunday's 106-104 loss to the Hornets, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. According to Charania, Dinwiddie sustained no other structural damage to his knee, but he'll still need to undergo surgery in the coming days and will face a multi-month rehab before being cleared for game action. Fortunately for Dinwiddie, he's expected to make a full recovery from surgery ahead of training camp in 2021-22, which should help his chances of earning a multi-year deal in free agency if he chooses to decline his $12.3 million player option for next season. Dinwiddie had started alongside Kyrie Irving at shooting guard in the Nets' first three games, but it's unclear at this time if Brooklyn plans to move sixth man Caris LeVert into the top unit, or perhaps turn to a lower-usage player like Landry Shamet or Taurean Prince to complement the starting five.
