Spencer Dinwiddie started for just the fourth time this season for the Brooklyn Nets and, in a game where coach Kenny Atkinson shook up the playing time, wound up with his second-shortest stint of the season.
Dinwiddie was relatively effective with 10 points in 21 minutes to go with five assists, but he did get caught with some unnecessary reaching defensively and turned the ball over a couple of times.
It was still a strong recovery from his worst outing of the season Friday in Charlotte and the super sub will get three days off after reduced minutes Saturday to gear up for the rest of the season.
Rondae Hollis-Jefferson’s day ended quickly, as he departed with a right adductor strain just three minutes in.
Now comes the wait to see how serious the injury might be. Remember that it was a strain of RHJ’s right adductor in August that kept him on the shelf for the entire preseason and opening night.
The Nets provided no updates after the initial announcement Hollis-Jefferson would not return to Saturday’s game, but it’s expected there will be more information released Sunday after the team returns home.
