    Shabazz Napier is set to start on Friday when the Wolves face the Pacers.

    With Jeff Teague shipped to the Hawks Napier should be in for a nice run as the Wolves' starting point guard. A trade away from the team looms, but Karl-Anthony Towns is back to serve as the focal point of the offense, which should ensure Napier gets plenty of assists without destroying your field-goal percentage. Jordan McLaughlin has also joined the Wolves and will serve as the backup point guard.

  • Jeff Teague

    Jeff Teague (right knee) will not play in Thursday's game against the Warriors.

    Teague will sit out for a second consecutive game on Thursday. Shabazz Napier could have fantasy value across all formats for as long as the Wolves are dealing with injuries to Teague and others. It is also worth noting that two-way player, Jordan McLaughlin, had his best game of his career against the Warriors the last time the two teams faced off and could be an intriguing low-cost DFS play.

    Jordan McLaughlin, a two-way player, has joined the big league club ahead of Thursday's game vs. the Warriors.

    McLaughlin had by far the best game of his career against the Warriors and could get an opportunity again on Thursday as the Wolves have four players questionable along with Jeff Teague being doubtful. He could be a sneaky low-cost DFS play if Teague, Treveon Graham and Andrew Wiggins ultimately sit out. He might even have some appeal with only Teague ruled out.

    Jordan McLaughlin scored 19 points on 7-of-13 shooting while adding two rebounds, four assists, three steals and three triples on Monday.

    He outplayed Jeff Teague (19 minutes, 12 points, one rebound, four assists, one block and one 3-pointer) but we're not buying it yet as he just got hot tonight.

    Jordan McLaughlin has returned from the G League and will be available to play during Wednesday's game.

    McLaughlin has performed well for Iowa but hasn't played an NBA game since November 11. He's just depth for the Wolves at the moment.

  • Jeff Teague
    PG, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Jeff Teague (illness) is listed as questionable ahead of Friday's matchup vs. the Warriors.

    The Wolves are in need of their starting point guard back as they were forced to play rookie Jordan McLaughlin over 20 minutes in his first NBA game. They lost on Wednesday to the Grizzlies, a team who had only won one game prior to that contest. The Wolves are very thin at the point guard position which is encouraging for fantasy owners with Teague on their roster. Continue to monitor his status as we get closer to tip-off.

    Jordan McLaughlin scored five points on 2-of-7 shooting to go with two assists and a 3-pointer on Wednesday.

    McLaughlin got the bulk of the backup point guard minutes with Shabazz Napier (strained right hamstring) sitting this one out. He can be ignored.

  • Jeff Teague
    PG, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Jeff Teague (illness) is being listed as questionable to face the Grizzlies on Thursday.

    The Wolves may be down both Teague and Shabazz Napier (doubtful) for this one and Jarrett Culver may be staring at all the minutes that he can handle with possibly Jordan McLaughlin as his backup. Culver would make for an excellent streamer if Teague and Napier can't go.

    Per Darren Wolfson of KSTP News, Jordan McLaughlin is on his way to meet his Wolves teammates in Memphis as they get ready to take on the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

    Though no word has come as of yet, this news would seem to indicate that the team doesn't expect Shabazz Napier (hamstring) to be available for the game. McLaughlin would slot in as the backup PG while Jarrett Culver should see a jump in minutes as well. Culver makes for an interesting streamer while McLaughlin is more of a hail mary punt play in DFS in the event Napier is ruled out.

    Keita Bates-Diop, Naz Reid, Jordan McLaughlin and Jaylen Nowell will be inactive for Friday's matchup vs. the Hornets.

    No surprises with this group. You do not need to bother keeping any of these players on your fantasy radar.

    Keita Bates-Diop, Naz Reid, Jordan McLaughlin and Jaylen Nowell will be inactive for Wednesday's matchup vs. the Nets.

    None of these players are currently on the fantasy radar and are unlikely to crack the rotation barring significant injuries.

    The Wolves have inked point guard Jordan McLaughlin to a two-way contract.

    McLaughlin went undrafted in 2018 after a four-year USC career where he averaged 12.8 points, 7.8 assists and 2.0 steals in his senior season. After his strong play for the G-League's Long Island Nets last season, he earned a spot on this years Wolves summer league roster where he continued to impress, leading his team to a 6-1 record. He is unlikely to get many NBA minutes this season with Jeff Teague, Shabazz Napier and Tyrone Wallace on the roster.

    Jordan McLaughlin filled the stat-sheet in Wednesday's narrow win against the Heat, posting 17 points, seven rebounds, six assists, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers.

    McLaughlin spent last season in the G-league with the Nets' affiliate, and is looking to make training camp with the Wolves this time around. A performance like this will certainly help that cause, but he doesn't figure to make the roster.

    The Nets signed guard Jordan McLaughlin to an Exhibit 10 contract on Wednesday.

    McLaughlin announced the deal in social media posts Wednesday night, and NetsDaily.com reported it being an Exhibit 10 deal. McLaughlin was a 38 percent career 3-point shooter over his four years at USC and put up 7.8 assists per game as a senior. The Nets training camp roster is now at 19; teams can have up to 20 players heading into camp.
