Dinwiddie injured his knee in the third quarter after landing awkwardly while driving to the basket against Bismack Biyombo.
The Nets have been one of the best teams in the NBA in the early part of the 2020 campaign thanks to the return of Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving, but the loss of Dinwiddie could be a major factor in the competitive Eastern Conference.
Dinwiddie has a $12.32 million player option for the 2021-22 NBA season.
