Brooklyn Nets guard Spencer Dinwiddie has suffered a partially torn ACL in his right knee and it appears that he is going to miss a considerable amount of time in order to recover. The Athletic’s Shams Charania delivered an update on Dinwiddie’s status Monday morning.

Charania explained that it was contact injury and that Dinwiddie should be fully recovered before he hits the free agent market in the 2021 offseason. Dinwiddie, who was selected with the No. 38 pick in the 2014 NBA Draft, recorded five points and four rebounds in 15 minutes of action against the Hornets on Sunday.

Outside of the Nets, Timberwolves big man Karl-Anthony Towns will be evaluated on a week-to-week basis after he suffered a dislocated left wrist in the first week of the NBA schedule. ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski provided an update Sunday evening.

With Towns out, the Wolves will turn to Naz Reid and former Trail Blazers big man Ed Davis to fill out their post rotation.
