The Brooklyn Nets are still trying to move on from their loss to the Charlotte Hornets on Sunday and they then received some bad news Monday morning. After leaving the game on Sunday, Spencer Dinwiddie got the ultimate worse news possible.

According to The Athletic and The Stadium’s Shams Charania, after a multitude of tests, it has been determined that Dinwiddie has a partial ACL tear and he will miss the rest of the season. The Nets expect Dinwiddie to make a full recovery before the 2021-22 season gets set to begin.

Dinwiddie had a terrific 2019-20 season leading the Nets to the playoffs despite major injuries to stars Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant averaging 20.6 points and 6.8 assists. He was a starter for the team this season and averaged 6.7 points and 4.3 rebounds in three games.

The positive thing for the Nets in this situation is due to the amount of depth the team has, they can turn to plenty of different options and they can help out. They can turn to guys like Caris LeVert, Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot, and Tyler Johnson to fill the void.

The Nets host the Memphis Grizzlies on Monday at 7:30 p.m. EST.
