Nets’ Spencer Dinwiddie partially tears ACL

Brooklyn Nets starter Spencer Dinwiddie partially tore his right anterior cruciate ligament.

The Nets said further updates will be issued following surgery, which is scheduled for next week.

The injury occurred in the third quarter of the Nets’ loss to the Charlotte Hornets. He walked off the court on his own but went to the locker room immediately. The Athletic said there was no other structural damage to the knee.
