Isaiah Whitehead has rejoined the starting lineup on Sunday vs. the Sixers sliding Spencer Dinwiddie back to the bench after starting on Friday vs. the Cavs.With Jeremy Lin (hamstring) without a timetable, the Nets wanted to take a look at Dinwiddie before his deal became guaranteed on Saturday. He got the start on Friday vs. the Cavs and finished with seven points, five rebounds, two assists and two turnovers in 18 minutes. While Whitehead got the first double-double of his NBA career with 10 points, 10 rebounds, three assists, one steal and four turnovers in 30 minutes. Whitehead is inefficient but with Lin dealing with his reoccurring injuries he may be worth a look in deeper leagues.
