Gorgui Dieng failed to score and just had eight rebounds to his name in 15 minutes off the Timberwolves’ bench on Thursday.
This was painful for his owners. Holding onto Dieng for his inherent upside and talent has been a constant rubbing of salt into already blistering wounds. There’s no clear light at the end of this dark tunnel that Dieng has been trapped in all season and he’s a drop candidate in even relatively deep leagues, especially for teams that need warm, productive bodies in their lineups.
