The Wolves’ bench big Nemanja Bjelica (foot) is listed as doubtful to play on Wednesday against the Clippers.
Bjelica joined the team in LA, but coach Tom Thibodeau said he doesn’t expect him to play. This is good news for Gorgui Dieng who has cracked top-60 value over the last four games earning 24.4 minutes per night during those contests. Belly has missed the last eight games and his return will impact Dieng who has played more minutes due to Belly’s injury. Dieng is worth a speculative pickup in case his strong play keeps him in the rotation even when Bjelica returns. More than likely though they will both cancel out each other’s value.
