Dinwiddie (knee) has decided to enter the 2014 NBA Draft, Kyle Ringo of the Boulder Daily Camera reports.

Dinwiddie becomes the fifth Colorado player to declare early for the draft in program history, after averaging 14.7 points and 3.8 assists as a junior. His draft prospects took a hit when he suffered a torn ACL in January, but his impressive college production could allow him to slide into the late-first or early-second round. Even so, he's still could miss a large chunk of his rookie season as he recovers from the injury.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Dinwiddie is leaning heavily toward leaving school early and declaring for the 2014 NBA Draft, ESPN's Jeff Goodman reports. He averaged 14.7 points, 3.8 assists and 3.1 rebounds prior to suffering a season-ending injury in 2014.

Dinwiddie came into the 2013-14 season expected to be Colorado's star, but he tore his ACL in mid-January, and was forced to miss the remainder of the season. His pro prospects are debatable, and it will be important that he can show he is approaching a full recovery from his injury, but the 6-foot-6, 200-pound shooting guard could get drafted as high as the late first round in the 2014 NBA Draft, assuming he does declare.

Dinwiddie (knee) suffered a torn ACL on Sunday and will be out for the rest of the 2013-14 season, ESPN.com reports.

Dinwiddie leads Colorado in both points (14.7) and assists (3.8) per game, so his absence leaves the team in a bind. Candidates to replace his playing time include freshmen Jaron Hopkins and Tre'Shaun Fletcher and sophomore Xavier Talton. Dinwiddie is viewed as a potential future NBA first-round pick, and the injury may influence him to stay at Colorado for another year.

Dinwiddie suffered a knee injury in the loss to Washington on Sunday, ESPN.com reports. He had seven points when his knee buckled while dribbling in the second half.

Tests on Monday will determine the extend of the injury, but the team's leading scorer (15.2 points) and assist (3.9) may be out for awhile. Junior Askia Booker will likely take over more responsibility, while sophomore Xavier Thalton could get more playing time.
