The Brooklyn Nets are working through a lot of injuries and kinks to begin their 2020-21 season. They just lost one of their main contributors in Spencer Dinwiddie who is out for the season due to a partially torn ACL which is going to hurt Brooklyn’s depth to begin the season.

In order to try and recover a roster spot and get somebody to replace Dinwiddie, the Nets are going to apply for a Disabled Player Exception worth $5.7 million. General manager Sean Marks and the Nets can use a slot to acquire a player in the final year of his deal. Of course, Brooklyn would need to clear a roster spot in order to use it if they are to be granted the exception. Also, the full use of the DPE would elevate their tax bill to $4.3 million.

On the court, the Nets will be looking to get back on track after dropping four of their past five games. They will host Donovan Mitchell and the Utah Jazz on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. EST.
