If Deniro doesn't sue him, I believe crazy Lenny.  That seems to be the precedent set by Canseco's book.

"...Back at the bungalow, Lyon said, DeNiro and comedian Robin Williams dropped by briefly, then everyone except Belushi and Smith left.

Later that morning, apparently after Belushi's body had been discovered, Lyon said, he received a phone call from Smith who, he said, sounded intoxicated and very upset"

I'm sure he was dropping by innocently that night to maybe play a board game or something.

Given the era DeNiro came up in, it's hard to see how he didn't use cocaine at some point. That stuff was still above ground and fairly acceptable in celebrity circles into the mid to late 1980s when Lenny Dykstra was at his Mets peak. I don't know which publishing company put out Dykstra's book, but I'd gather they checked on this to whatever extent is possible in order to avoid a libel suit. However, if Robert DeNiro truly didn't use cocaine with Dykstra and doesn't sue, it may be because doing so would do more to publicize the claims than to actually quell the stories. Dykstra is way off anyone's mainstream radar right now and in the sports world is viewed as a more or less a joke. Truth or lie, you validate things more sometimes fighting the good fight than by just letting it die a natural death.

Would anyone be surprised that DeNiro went on coke binges from time to time?  I would be surprised if he didn't.  The truth is that it's unlikely that DeNiro has any recollection of this or has the slightest clue who Dykstra is.  But I'm sure he's done coke, I doubt he really cares about it at this point, and he's not going to sue over something that really isn't even that controversial.  I don't want to live in a world where Robert DeNiro just sips red wine.  With all the shit movies he's been in recently, this story does nothing but help people remember how cool he once was.

He likely has stories of far worse.

No problem believing this even though Dykstra is a bullshitter.  Remember how he was a stock picking genius.  Deniro was well known for his heavy partying which is probably over with now due to age.  Deniro was one of the last people to see John Belushi alive.  I am sure they weren't having milk and cookies.

I heard a rumor they were supposed to play board games.

That's completely false. Charades.
