    Andrew Wiggins triple-doubled in Saturday's loss to the Raptors, finishing with 18 points, 10 rebounds, 11 assists, one steal and three turnovers.

    The triple-double was a nice touch to an ok shooting night for Wiggins, who finished 6-of-14 from the field. He normally does not produce much beyond scoring so tonight's novelty is a welcome sign for owners.

    Andrew Wiggins was able to tally 22 points, four assists and two 3-pointers while hitting 9-of-17 from the field on Friday night.

    Wiggins has slowed from his early season tear but he's still producing solid top-80/100 value in 8/9-cat formats. We'll see how the return of Karl-Anthony Towns changes things but at this point it's hard to call Wiggins anything other than a win for fantasy GMs who rolled the dice on his upside in the late rounds of drafts — if you took him in the top-100, you got more lucky than anything.

    Andrew Wiggins couldn't find his shot on Wednesday, finishing with 10 points on 4-of-13 shooting, three boards, three assists, a steal and a block.

    This wasn't one of his better games and owners will want to move on quickly. He is still expected to see high volume as the team awaits Karl-Anthony Towns' (knee) return.

    Andrew Wiggins led the Wolves in their 116-102 win on Thursday with 23 points on 9-of-15 shooting to go with three boards, eight dimes and two triples.

    Wiggins was one assist shy of his career-high of nine and delivered his best game since returning from injury. He's just outside of the top-75 in 9-cat leagues on the year and with Karl-Anthony Towns (knee) having no timetable for a return, we can expect a bump in Wiggins' usage.

    Andrew Wiggins (illness) returned on Sunday against the Cavs and saw his 15 points, seven rebounds, four assists, two steals and one 3-pointer spoiled by 6-of-19 shooting.

    A few more shots going through the hoop would have gotten Wiggins into a much nicer night of production, and let's just chalk this one up to some rust coming off. At this point, you either sold high or you are sticking out with Wiggins in most scenarios. Jarrett Culver (14 points, four steals, two blocks, two 3-pointers) registered another nice game off the bench and is worth keeping an eye on in case his shooting ever settles into a non-value erasing number.

    Andrew Wiggins (illness) is available to play during Sunday's game versus the Cavs.

    Karl-Anthony Towns and Jeff Teague are both still currently questionable and if they sit Wiggins will be tasked with the heavy lifting. Kelan Martin will most likely go back to a bench role.

    Andrew Wiggins (illness) is being listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Cavs.

    Wiggins has been dealing with "flu-like symptoms" for a week, so he either caught something more serious than the team first thought or his doctors are playing an elaborate prank on the team. In any case, Wiggins should be back soon after practicing with the team earlier today, but with the Wolves being so coy about their injury reporting, it's impossible to read the tea leaves. He's a risky DFS play, but he should be undervalued.

    Andrew Wiggins (illness) practiced with the team on Saturday and is traveling with them to Cleveland for Sunday's game.

    Wiggins has been out the last four games but should be on the verge of a return with this news and may even play on Sunday. Shabazz Napier has taken on a bigger scoring role with 20+ points in each of the last three games so that may be reduced a little when Wiggins returns. Kelan Martin has payed 29.3 minutes over the last four games filling in for Wiggins and will undoubtedly take the biggest hit.

    Andrew Wiggins remains out on Thursday against the Warriors as he continues to recover from an illness.

    Wiggins will miss his fourth consecutive ball-game on Thursday and is not alone. The Wolves will be without five key rotation players on Thursday which grants some value when it comes to DFS lineups. Shabazz Napier, Josh Okogie, Jarrett Culver, Kelan Martin, Keita Bates-Diop, Jordan McLaughlin and Jaylen Nowell could see their value increase against a porous Warrior defense.

    Andrew Wiggins (illness) is being listed as questionable to face the Warriors on Thursday.

    The illness that Wiggins caught over the weekend is still giving him problems, and he is in danger of missing a fourth consecutive game. Check back in closer to tip-off to get an official confirmation of Wiggins' status. If Wiggins can go, he will be in line for a smash spot against the Warriors defense in the bottom 10 in opponent points per game.

    Andrew Wiggins (illness) will not play in Wednesday's matchup vs. the Bucks.

    Neither Wiggins nor Karl-Anthony Towns will be suiting up in this one and it seems as thought the Wolves are just giving the Bucks the win. Jeff Teague is being listed as doubtful too so the Wolves are most likely treating this as a rest day.

    Andrew Wiggins (illness) will not play on Monday.

    Wiggins is having flu-like symptoms and had already missed shootaround. His scoring average of 24.8 points would be a career best. In the meantime, expect Jeff Teague to be a key player for the Wolves.

    The Wolves have recalled Naz Reid from Iowa of the G League.

    Reid has shown off his shot blocking and long-range shooting in the G League. With Treveon Graham and Andrew Wiggins fighting illnesses while Karl-Anthony Towns remains out, Reid has been summoned for depth.

    Andrew Wiggins (illness) is being listed as questionable for Monday's game versus the Nets.

    The Timberwolves opted to go with a combination of young wings with Wiggins out last game, but the biggest boost goes to Jeff Teague, Josh Okogie and Keita Bates-Diop.

  • Collin Sexton
    PG, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Collin Sexton scored an inefficient 18 points (5-of-17 from the field) in Saturday's win over the Wolves, chipping in seven rebounds, one assist, one steal and six turnovers.

    Sexton had more turnovers (6) than field goals made (5) in a very one-dimensional game. He continues to be void of a serviceable 3PT shot and provides little value elsewhere. Similar to Andrew Wiggins, Sexton is known to score and do very little else.
