RUMOR: Nets get positive news on injured guard – but it’s not James Harden
The Brooklyn Nets are up two games to one over the Milwaukee Bucks, but are hoping for some positive news on injured All-Star James Harden. While nothing definitive has come on that front, at least one Nets star is also eyeing a return to the court sooner rather than later.
Long-time Nets guard Spencer Dinwiddie is rumored to be ramping up his activity in a bid to return for Brooklyn as they make their push for an NBA championship.
This comes via a report from NY Daily News’ Kristian Winfield.
After more than six months on the sidelines due to an ACL injury, Dinwiddie is eyeing a return to play if the Nets make it to the Finals, the Daily News has learned. A source close to the Nets’ combo guard also says after spending most of the regular season rehabbing in Los Angeles, Dinwiddie is planning to return to the team “sooner than later.”
“He’s going to be in Brooklyn to support his team,” the source said. “He definitely is.”
Dinwiddie played in just three games for the Nets this season before succumbing to an untimely ACL injury. But the guard as trained his butt off since then, doing everything he can to get healthy enough to see action on the court once again.
