Jarrett Culver

  • Jarrett Culver
    G-F, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Jarrett Culver scored six points on 2-of-4 shooting with six rebounds, one assist and one block on Monday.

    Culver has been starting, but not doing much with it. He still has a lot to work out and the rookie learning curve for guards is a bit steeper so we expected some struggles from him. He could make some waves later in the year, but for now he's waiver wire fodder.

  • Shabazz Napier
    PG, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Shabazz Napier is probable for Friday's game against the Thunder as he nurses a hamstring strain.

    Napier was already behind Jeff Teague in the rotation but has now fallen beneath Jarrett Culver as well. He will not have fantasy value for as long as that persists.

    Jarrett Culver started next to Andrew Wiggins again at point guard on Wednesday against the Spurs, scoring 10 points on 4-of-13 shooting (including two threes) with two rebounds, five assists, one steal and one block in 26 minutes.

    Culver's percentages this season are about as bad as you'll see, but he has talent and if you start to move his numbers from the outlier marks they are on the season to something of a bad-shooting version of his current role, he figures to be a top 150-175 guy. But if he can even get to be 'simply' bad in the 40 percent range from the field and 70-75 percent mark from the line, then he has late-round value in his current role. That's pretty good math on an add but he's going to have to avoid the rookie blues and obviously, hit the broad side of a barn pretty soon.

    Jarrett Culver was able to deliver 14 points, five rebounds, three assists and two steals in 24 minutes on Monday, starting the game at point guard.

    That will be the new arrangement going forward — Culver will start at PG but Andrew Wiggins will do most of the distribution, while Jeff Teague comes off the bench. Culver is well outside the top-300 this season but his arrow is definitely pointing up. Not enough for standard-league value yet, but it's a start.

  • Jeff Teague
    PG, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Jeff Teague will come off the bench on Monday as Jarrett Culver receives the start.

    Teague has only been a reserve six times in the last nine seasons. However, Ryan Saunders wants to see more of the rookie Culver who is expected to remain in the lineup going forward. It's a frustrating development for Teague owners, but he'll certainly still get to contribute.

  • Shabazz Napier
    PG, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Shabazz Napier won't play on Monday due to a strained right hamstring.

    Napier has missed most of the month. Jeff Teague has filled in nicely during his absence but Jarrett Culver will start in this one.

  • Jake Layman
    SF, Minnesota Timberwolves

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

    This will be Layman's third consecutive game missed and it appears he may continue to miss more time. If Josh Okogie and Treveon Graham are both questionable and if they sit Jarrett Culver would be in line more some extended run.

    Jarrett Culver scored 11 points on 5-of-13 shooting (including a three) with five rebounds, three assists and two blocks over 27 minutes in Saturday's loss to the Suns.

    Culver has hit just 36.7 percent from the field and a rather amazing 34.5 percent from the foul line (on 1.8 attempts per game no less). There's talent there and maybe even some near triple-one potential, but he has to clean up the efficiency to sniff fantasy squads in most standard formats.

  • Jarrett Culver
    G-F, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Jarret Culver struggled to get things going in 24 minutes on Wednesday, shooting 4-of-14 from the field and ending with 10 points, four boards, a steal and two 3-pointers.

    Culver is an interesting player when injuries plague Minnesota's backcourt since he has shown he can collect defensive stats. But at the moment, he isn't worth owning outside of deeper leagues and keeper leagues.

  • Jake Layman
    SF, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Jake Layman has been downgraded to out ahead of Wednesday's game against the Jazz.

    Jarrett Culver and Josh Okogie could see an uptick in minutes with Layman ruled out. The good news for the Wolves is that they will get back Andrew Wiggins (illness) into their starting lineup. Layman's next opportunity to play will come on Saturday.

  • Shabazz Napier
    PG, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Shabazz Napier (right hamstring strain) will not play Wednesday against the Jazz.

    This will be Napier's 10th straight missed game. It is unclear if he will regain his backup role upon his return with rookie Jarrett Culver performing well in his stead.

  • Josh Okogie
    SG, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Josh Okogie (left knee soreness) is questionable to face the Jazz on Wednesday.

    With Okogie and Andrew Wiggins (illness) questionable, and Jake Layman (foot) doubtful, Jarrett Culver may be thrust into extended minutes. This is a situation to monitor.

  • Josh Okogie
    SG, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Josh Okogie will play on Monday despite some prior left knee soreness.

    Okogie was able to participate in shootaround, so this isn't too surprising. The move diminishes the values of Jarrett Culver and Jake Layman. Okogie can contribute steals but has shot poorly from long range this season.

  • Josh Okogie
    SG, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Josh Okogie (left knee soreness) is being considered questionable for Monday's game versus the Jazz.

    Okogie missed Saturday's game and Jake Layman and Jarrett Culver made the most out of his minutes and would be the biggest beneficiaries forced to sit again.

  • Andrew Wiggins
    SF, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Andrew Wiggins (personal) has been ruled out of Saturday's game versus the Rockets.

    Wiggins will miss the second straight game to spend time with his family. Josh Okogie and Jarrett Culver with see a boost in minutes, while his massive usage gets distributed amongst the starters.
