Spencer Dinwiddie showed why he's not going anywhere as he provided high value for the Nets on Wednesday with 26 points on 8-of-16 shooting from the field.
Dinwiddie was able to chip in two rebounds, eight dimes and three triples to the box score. He's shown that the return of Kyrie Irving is not as a horrible as it may seem when it comes to the potential decline of his value. He's a hold for sure.

Kyrie Irving played a full complement of minutes (32) on Tuesday in a loss to the Jazz and he was incredible again, putting up 32 points (12-of-19 FGs, 5-of-6 FTs), five rebounds, 11 assists, two steals, one block and three 3-pointers.
Iriving looks better than just about anyone expected after his lengthy absence. Based on the injury that kept him out, it's hard to trust him completely, but while he's playing Irving should return first-round value. Spencer Dinwiddie continued to start next to Kyrie and had 17 points, four rebounds, five assists and two triples in 36 minutes. He looks to be fine to hold as an inefficient guard lacking in steals.

Kyrie Irving (right shoulder impingement) finally returned to the court on Sunday and looked great, roasting the Hawks for 21 points on 10-of-11 shooting in just 20 minutes of action.
Irving missed the last 26 games so we'd expect to see more minutes restrictions for the foreseeable future. He added four rebounds, three assists, a steal and a 3-pointer tonight and he's safe to get back into lineups as long as you're not expecting Kyrie to get back to first-round output. Spencer Dinwiddie started next to Irving in this game and had seven points, four rebounds in eight assists in 25 minutes while Caris LeVert had 13 points and three steals in 22 minutes off the bench. Those two are the most likely to be affected by Irving's return but we'll draw more serious conclusions from a game that isn't a blowout — Brooklyn won by 22.

Spencer Dinwiddie will start alongside of Kyrie Irving in Sunday's game versus the Hawks.
This will be the first time that Dinwiddie and Irving will start alongside of each other and I think it's safe to assume Dinwiddie will be playing off of the ball. Garrett Temple will shift to the bench and is safe to drop in standard leagues.

Spencer Dinwiddie went off in Friday's 117-113 win over the Heat, dropping 26 points (10-for-19 shooting), 14 assists, four rebounds, two triples, two steals and a block.
The 14 assists were a career-high for Dinwiddie, who was able to get his teammates involved while scoring very efficiently himself. This game hopefully represents him snapping out of the slump he was slowly falling into.

Spencer Dinwiddie struggled from the field again in an overtime loss to the Thunder on Tuesday, hitting just 6-of-18 shots on his way to a 14-point, five-rebound, six-assist performance.
Dinwiddie has looked great for stretches in place of Kyrie Irving (right shoulder impingement), but his shot has gone cold during most of the Nets' current losing streak. Maybe having Caris LeVert back will take off some of the pressure and help with his efficiency.

Spencer Dinwiddie scored 16 points on 6-of-19 shooting to go with five rebounds, three assists and two triples on Monday.
Dinwiddie went 2-for-10 from deep which marred his shooting line, but he's not known for his efficiency anyways. With the news that Kyrie Irving can't lift his shoulder yet, Dinwiddie remains a must-own player until further notice.

Spencer Dinwiddie had a big night with 36 points (12-of-31 FGs, 9-of-13 FTs), five rebounds, eight assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 40 minutes as the Nets lost to the Wolves 115-122 in overtime on Monday.
Dinwiddie has been amazing while the Nets have been without their other primary ball-handlers. That may be coming to an end shortly, but he may hold enough value to keep all season with the role he's carved out once again this season. His free throw percentage has been dipping lately, but one would expect that to come around shortly based on his history. Joe Harris also had a solid game with 19 points on 8-of-14 shooting, seven boards, one dime and three treys in 41 minutes.

Spencer Dinwiddie struggled shooting on Saturday (6-of-20 from the field and 5-of-11 from the line) but still managed to double-double with 17 points and 11 assists in 33 minutes.
This game broke a streak of eight straight games with 20 points for Dinwiddie. He remains a strong fantasy player while Kyrie Irving is out and is a sell-high candidate.

Spencer Dinwiddie tried and failed to solo-carry the Nets in Thursday's loss to the Knicks with 25 points (5-of-15 FGs, 12-of-17 FTs), eight rebounds, three assists and three triples.
It was a valiant attempt from Dinwiddie, but his teammates were not feeling it tonight. He remains a high-value play with Kyrie Irving still without a timetable to return.

Spencer Dinwiddie kept his foot on the gas on Saturday, pouring in 39 points (13-of-27 FGs, 11-of-12 FTs), six rebounds, six assists, two triples and one steal vs. the Hawks.
Dinwiddie is a sell-high candidate as he's expected to drop off when Kyrie Irving eventually works his way back onto the court. A top-75 target should be a nice cash-out target for Dinwiddie, so get on the horn and send out those offers.

Spencer Dinwiddie did all the scoring for the Nets in a loss to the Spurs on Thursday, finishing with 41 points, five assists and four 3-pointers in 34 minutes.
Dinwiddie is still the main offensive contributor for this Nets team that is really struggling with depth. They lost another guard in David Nwaba who had been performing well of late to a torn Achilles and are desperate for the return of Kyrie Irving and Caris LeVert. Until then, Dinwiddie will be a good source for points, assists and 3-pointers until the Nets get healthy.

Spencer Dinwiddie led the Nets to a 108-101 overtime win over the Pelicans on Tuesday, scoring a game-high 31 points (11-of-26 FGs, 8-of-11 FTs) with two rebounds, seven assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 39 minutes.
Dinwiddie has put up third-round value over the past month while Kyrie Irving (right shoulder impingement) has been out. Once Irving and/or Caris LeVert (right thumb surgery) return, his value will take a hit, but he should still produce enough to hang onto in most leagues.

Spencer Dinwiddie led the charge for the Nets with 24 points and six dimes in a team-high 30 minutes of action on Sunday.
Dinwiddie has been phenomenal since Kyrie Irving went down and has inserted himself in the conversation to be an Eastern Conference All-Star. He shot 9-of-21 from the field and knocked down two triples. There is a great sell-high opportunity for Dinwiddie as you might be able to get a top-50 asset for him.

Spencer Dinwiddie compiled 24 points (8-for-16 shooting), six assists, five rebounds, two triples and a steal in Wednesday's loss to the Hornets.
The good times continue to roll for Dinwiddie while Kyrie Irving is hurt. Enjoy the ride and see if there are any sell-high opportunities before Irving returns.
