Andrew Wiggins dropped 27 points, Karl-Anthony Towns contributed 35 & 8, and Ricky Rubio fed the big guns with 13 assists in Monday’s loss to the Heat.
Minnesota is hurting to fill the void left by Zach Lavine (knee) who is done for the season. Brandon Rush played 33 minutes, but could only muster five points. Shabazz Muhammad came off the bench to score 12 points in 21 minutes. Tyus Jones playing for the injured Kris Dunn (hand) played 31 minutes and scored five points and dished nine assists. Muhammad cracked the top-130 over the last two weeks and is worth a flier in 12-team leagues. Tyus Jones is likely to lose minutes to Kris Dunn when he is healthy. Despite the minutes you don’t need to “Rush” to the waiver wire for Brandon.
