  • Lakers' Spencer Dinwiddie: Non-factor in win

    Dinwiddie recorded zero points (0-3 FG, 0-2 3Pt), two rebounds and one assist over five minutes during Tuesday's 110-106 Play-In Game victory over the Pelicans.

    Dinwiddie barely touched the floor in the win, managing just five minutes of playing time. The Lakers opted to go with Gabe Vincent as the primary backup, a move that could very well stick given his defensive upside. Tuesday's win means the Lakers will now go on to face the Nuggets in the first round of the playoffs.

  • Lakers' Spencer Dinwiddie: Moves back to bench

    Dinwiddie isn't in the starting five for Tuesday's game versus the Warriors, Ryan Ward of LakersNation.com reports.

    LeBron James will replace Dinwiddie in the starting lineup Tuesday after missing the previous game with an illness. Dinwiddie is averaging 4.8 points, 1.6 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1.0 steals in 22.0 minutes across his last five appearances coming off the bench.

  • Lakers' Spencer Dinwiddie: Logs 18 points in starting role

    Dinwiddie posted 18 points (4-7 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 7-7 FT), five rebounds and seven assists in 36 minutes during Sunday's 127-117 loss to the Timberwolves.

    The Lakers sacrificed a bit of size by implementing Dinwiddie amid LeBron James' (illness) absence, but the combo worked out fairly well thanks to a balanced line from the former Net. Dinwiddie wasn't afraid to mix it up and made the Timberwolves pay with a perfect night from the charity stripe. He also collected seven assists, his highest total since joining the Lakers.

  • Lakers' Spencer Dinwiddie: Starting Sunday

    Dinwiddie will start Sunday's game against the Timberwolves, Daniel Starkand of LakersNation.com reports

    Dinwiddie returns to the starting lineup for the fourth time as a member of the Lakers due to LeBron James (illness) being out of the lineup. In his previous three starts, Dinwiddie averaged 12.7 points, 4.0 assists, 2.0 rebounds and 1.7 blocks in 37.0 minutes per game.

  • Lakers' Spencer Dinwiddie: Moves to bench role Wednesday

    Dinwiddie is not in the starting lineup to face the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

    Dinwiddie will return to his regular bench role following the return of LeBron James (ankle). Dinwiddie is averaging 5.0 points and 2.7 assists per game when deployed off the bench.

  • Lakers' Spencer Dinwiddie: Remains in starting lineup

    Dinwiddie is in the starting five for Tuesday's game versus the Bucks, Ryan Ward of LakersNation.com reports.

    Despite D'Angelo Russell returning to the lineup Tuesday, LeBron James' (ankle) absence will allow Dinwiddie to remain in the starting five. Dinwiddie is averaging 15.5 points, 4.0 assists, 2.0 rebounds, 2.0 blocks and 1.0 steals in 34.5 minutes across his previous two starts for the Lakers this season.

  • Lakers' Spencer Dinwiddie: Posts 26 points in spot start

    Dinwiddie posted 26 points (8-11 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 8-9 FT), five assists, two rebounds, two blocks and one steal over 35 minutes during Sunday's 150-145 victory over Indiana.

    With D'Angelo Russell (illness) sidelined, Dinwiddie stepped in and turned in his best performance as a Laker. The guard hasn't scored more than 11 points during his tenure in Los Angeles, but his fill-in performance shows that the team's backcourt depth is in great shape. His spot on the depth chart limits any fantasy viability, however.

  • Lakers' Spencer Dinwiddie: Starting Sunday

    Dinwiddie will start during Sunday's game against the Pacers, Mike Trudell of Spectrum SportsNet reports.

    Dinwiddie will get his second start as a member of the Lakers due to D'Angelo Russell (illness) being out of the lineup. In his previous start, Dinwiddie posted five points, three assists, two rebounds, two blocks and a steal in 34 minutes, so fantasy managers should not rush to add him to their lineup in most situations.

  • Lakers' Spencer Dinwiddie: Starting against Bucks

    Dinwiddie will start against the Bucks on Friday, Khobi Price of The Orange County Register reports.

    LeBron James (ankle) is sitting out Friday, so the Lakers will roll with a smaller lineup featuring three guards. Dinwiddie has struggled since joining the Lakers, as he's shooting 37.3 percent from the field.

  • Lakers' Spencer Dinwiddie: Continues to struggle

    Dinwiddie registered seven points (3-6 FG, 1-4 3Pt), six assists and two rebounds in the Lakers' 116-112 win against the Clippers on Wednesday.

    Since signing with the Lakers on Feb. 10, Dinwiddie hasn't acclimated to his new team, averaging only 5.2 points on 34.3 percent shooting in 24.0 minutes. The former Nets guard has struggled this season, averaging only 12.6 points on 39.1 percent shooting prior to being traded and later released. Despite the 30-year-old's slow start with the Lakers, expect Dinwiddie to continue receiving significant playing time with their guard depth in tatters as the Lakers slowly work back Gabe Vincent (knee).

  • Lakers' Spencer Dinwiddie: Debut coming Tuesday

    Dinwiddie will be available to make his Lakers debut Tuesday against Detroit, Michael Corvo of ClutchPoints.com reports.

    With Dinwiddie's one-year contract with the Lakers having been made official, he'll likely serve as the team's top guard off the bench behind starters D'Angelo Russell and Austin Reaves. Dinwiddie connected on 36.9 percent of the 6.2 three-pointers per game he attempted last season, but he's dipped to 32 percent on 5.8 attempts per game over his 48 games with Brooklyn prior to being dealt to Toronto last week and subsequently being waived. The 30-year-old offers quality size and has the ability to play either guard spot, but he's unlikely to see enough minutes in Los Angeles to post the sort of counting stats that make up for his poor efficiency.

  • Lakers' Spencer Dinwiddie: Signs with Lakers

    The Lakers are signing Dinwiddie to a $1.5 million contract for the remainder of the season Saturday, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports.

    Dinwiddie was waived by the Raptors after being traded from Brooklyn in exchange for Thaddeus Young and Dennis Schroder. While the 30-year-old guard started in all 48 of his appearances for the Nets this year, he will likely come off the bench for the Lakers. Once Gabe Vincent (knee) is healthy, he and Dinwiddie are expected to compete for backup point guard minutes behind D'Angelo Russell.

  • Spencer Dinwiddie: Expected to join Lakers

    Dinwiddie is expected to sign with the Lakers after he clears waivers, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Dinwiddie is on the open market after the Raptors opted to cut him after acquiring him from the Nets on Thursday in a deal that sent Dennis Schroder and Thaddeus Young to Brooklyn. The Lakers and the Mavericks were considered the two most serious teams in pursuit for the veteran point guard's services, but Dinwiddie will likely have a clearer path to more meaningful playing time in Los Angeles behind D'Angelo Russell and Austin Reaves than he would in Dallas behind Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving. Dinwiddie still could struggle to surpass 25 minutes while both Russell and Reaves are healthy, so his fantasy appeal could be somewhat muted in his new destination. He averaged 12.6 points, 6.0 assists, 3.3 rebounds, 1.9 three-pointers and 0.8 steals across 30.7 minutes in 48 games with the Nets this season prior to getting dealt.

  • Spencer Dinwiddie: Will be cut by Toronto

    The Raptors plan to waive Dinwiddie after acquiring him from the Nets earlier Thursday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Toronto took back Dinwiddie as their only compensation in a deal that sent Dennis Schroder and Thaddeus Young to Brooklyn, but the Raptors' motivation to make the deal was seemingly just for cost-cutting reasons. Dinwiddie's contract contains a $1.5 million bonus tied to games played, so Toronto will cut him loose before that bonus is realized and allow him to sign elsewhere once he clears waivers. While Dinwiddie's production has ebbed and flowed throughout the season, he should garner significant interest on the buyout market from contending teams in need of experienced guard depth.
