T.J. Warren shot just 4-of-14 on Saturday night but managed to wind up with 15 points thanks to a 7-of-8 mark from the charity stripe, adding five rebounds, two assists and a steal in a big win over the Wolves.
Warren was very lucky to get to the line, and it illustrates the lack of depth in his fantasy game. A two-point scorer, Warren really shouldn’t be counted on to do much more than get buckets and pick up a smattering of the lighter counting stats. When his shot isn’t falling it can be a perilous proposition for fantasy owners, but Warren has built up enough good faith over the last year and a half to retain comfortable standing as a top-100 asset. No need to panic, but know that he doesn’t have much of a safety net in the case of a prolonged slump.
