Huge Blow Dealt to the Brooklyn Nets

In news you never want to hear, the Brooklyn Nets have announced that Spencer Dinwiddie has a partially torn ACL in his right knee, and is expected to make a full recovery in time for next season.

In his three brief appearances this season, the 27-year-old was averaging 6.7 points, 4.3 rebounds and three assists. It's certainly the first big piece of adversity the Nets will have to face in this young season. 

Dinwiddie was originally a 2nd round selection of the Detroit Pistons at the 2014 NBA Draft. Look for the Nets to add another veteran guard at some point this season.
