    Jordan McLaughlin continued his run of production in Friday's loss to the Magic, posting 14 points (6-for-10 shooting), nine assists, three rebounds, two triples and one steal in 27 minutes off the bench.

    His 27 minutes led the Wolves bench unit which also had a solid performance from Jake Layman (14 points, one triple). McLaughlin is worth a look as a points/assists streamer and is a must-start when D'Angelo Russell misses time.

    Jake Layman (left toe sprain) played his first game since mid-November, saw 13 minutes of the bench on Monday and was able to chip in five points and three rebounds.

    Layman has fallen off the fantasy radar completely. That said, he's someone to keep an eye on as the Wolves may increase his workload down the stretch.

    Jake Layman (left toe sprain) is available for Monday's game.

    Layman has been out since November, so his role is uncertain going forward. However, he did put up decent numbers prior to the injury and could be worth monitoring.

    Jake Layman (left toe sprain) is probable to play on Monday.

    Layman was cleared for practice on Thursday and was set to be re-evaluated in a week, but it appears that everything's gone well and that Layman is ahead of schedule. He's been out since November 18 because of this injury but was playing quite well before going down, so he's someone to watch out for in deeper leagues given Minnesota's ramshackle roster.

    Jake Layman (left toe sprain) has been cleared to return to practice and will be re-evaluated in one week.

    Layman visited multiple foot specialists in his recovery from a toe sprain that's kept him sidelined since November 18. Prior to the injury he was on solid ground in Minnesota's rotation, averaging 10.5 points, 2.9 rebounds, 0.9 steals, 0.7 blocks and 1.4 3-pointers in 26.3 mpg — all good for career-highs aside from the rebounds. Obviously the sample is small with just 14 appearances on the year, but perhaps Layman can get back to his old role if he gets fully healthy, especially with the Wolves remaking their bench at the trade deadline. He's a name to keep an eye on in deeper formats.

    Nothing to see here. Layman averaged 10.5 points per game in the early going but has missed nearly two months with this injury.

    Jake Layman (left toe sprain) is listed as out on Monday vs. the Warriors.

    Layman has been out since mid-November and the Wolves have been very coy about a potential return. He was a useful deep league player earlier this year, but the Wolves have since tweaked the rotation significantly. He is off the fantasy radar.

    Jake Layman (left toe sprain) has been ruled out of Saturday's game versus the Blazers.

    Layman is still without an actual timetable and shouldn't be rostered in any league. Keita Bates-Diop will continue to see steady minutes off of the bench while Layman is out.

    According to Jon Krawczynski of The Athletic, Jake Layman (left toe sprain) is still in a walking boot as he continues to rehab from turf toe.

    Layman does not have a timetable to return as we await a re-evaluation of his status. Being in a walking boot still should mean that he will be out for a while. Layman can be left on the waiver wire while Keita Bates-Diop continues to take on the majority of his minutes.

    Jake Layman (left toe sprain) will be re-evaluated in "the near future," according to Ryan Saunders.

    Layman can be considered out indefinitely, at least until we hear that he's been through the re-evaluation. Keita Bates-Diop has stepped up admirably in Layman's absence, though it hasn't affected the fantasy landscape substantially. KBD remains a low-end option in most formats.
