The 27-year-old guard exited that Nets’ third game of the season after suffering a contact injury that triggered the partial tear. Prior to his exit, Dinwiddie was a regular starter in Brooklyn’s rotation.
Dinwiddie, who enters unrestricted free agency in the 2021 NBA offseason, is expected to make a full recovery prior to that process. Last season, the former No. 38 pick in the 2014 NBA Draft averaged 20.6 points and 6.8 assists per game.
