Josh Okogie started on Saturday and scored 15 points (3-of-5 from the field) with two steals and two 3-pointers in 24 minutes.
Okogie shot 7-of-8 from the free throw line for a second consecutive game and outplayed Jarrett Culver again (five points in 23 minutes off the bench on Saturday). D'Angelo Russell will hurt Okogie's value when he returns and he should be left for deeper leagues as a steals specialist.

Josh Okogie started on Wednesday and scored 23 points on 8-of-11 shooting with three steals and one block in 37 minutes.
Okogie's shot was great on Wednesday as he was also 7-of-8 from the free throw line. He won't shoot this well every game and if he shot at his regular shooting percentage of 39.7 percent this line would look lackluster. Fantasy GMs should wait to see what Okogie's role looks like when Juancho Hernangomez and Malik Beasley join the team before considering adding him.

Allen Crabbe (left patella subluxation) has been upgraded to questionable for Wednesday's game.
He was previously listed as doubtful. Josh Okogie will see more time if the 3-point specialist cannot play against the Hawks.

Allen Crabbe (left patella subluxation) will not play on Monday.
Crabbe had already been listed as doubtful with the knee issue. The former Cal Golden Bear is strictly a 3-point specialist and Josh Okogie is likely to see an uptick in minutes against the Kings.

Allen Crabbe hurt his left knee during Saturday's game and will not return.
Crabbe finished the game with one rebound and one turnover in four minutes. Crabbe is unlikely to have standard-league value at any point this season. If he misses time his minutes should go to Josh Okogie who had a 17-point performance in 32 minutes on Friday.

Josh Okogie got the starting nod for the Wolves on Friday and rewarded them with a solid performance, posting 17 points (6-of-9 FGs, 5-of-5 FTs) with six boards, four dimes and three steals in 32 minutes.
Okogie is worth an add in deep leagues after tonight's gem. He sent Jarrett Culver back to the bench and his value took a hard fall with just seven points on 3-of-9 shooting, three rebounds, one steal and one block. Culver remains a post-ASB breakout candidate and is worth holding if your league settings do not punish you for your patience.

Josh Okogie was hot on Monday, hitting 7-of-11 field goals for 16 points to go with eight rebounds, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer in 27 minutes. off the bench in a loss to the Nuggets.
Okogie had an amazing dunk in this one as well. His flashes are still too few and far between to get excited about his fantasy prospects. Outside of his above-average steals, Okogie doesn't stand out in a good way in any category.

Josh Okogie delivered 15 points on 5-of-7 shooting on Friday night, adding four rebounds, a steal and a 3-pointer.
Okogie played 25 minutes tonight, slightly up from his season average of 23.8. If he can continue that upward trend, which seems likely given Minnesota's recent trade to clear up the wings a bit, then he could pop on the radar as a 3-and-D guy.

Josh Okogie (right elbow bursitis) turned in seven points, five rebounds, three assists, a steal, a block and a 3-pointer in 21 minutes on Thursday.
It's a bit dispiriting that Okogie only played 21 minutes with the Wolves so shorthanded but maybe they're just managing his workload while he battles the elbow issue. Okogie hasn't taken the step forward we hoped to see but he's still a deep-league option for defensive numbers.

Josh Okogie (right elbow bursitis) will play against the Warriors on Thursday.
Okogie will come off the bench in Thursday's matchup but should have plenty of opportunity with Andrew Wiggins, Jeff Teague and Treveon Graham all ruled out. He had 12 points (3-of-8 from the field; 5-of-8 from the charity stripe), four rebounds, one assist, two steals and one trifecta in 26 minutes of action in his last game.

Josh Okogie (right elbow bursitis) is probable to face the Warriors on Thursday.
The Wolves have four key players questionable and Jeff Teague is currently listed as doubtful for Thursday's contest. This could lead to more opportunity for Okogie as he saw 26 minutes of action in last night's contest when they were without six key players.

Josh Okogie (right elbow bursitis) will face the Bucks on Wednesday.
Okogie should see an increased role on Wednesday as the Wolves are without Andrew Wiggins, Karl-Anthony Towns, Jeff Teague and three others. There will be plenty of usage up for grabs and Okogie is a prime candidate to see a value bump.

Josh Okogie (right elbow bursitis) is probable for Wednesday's game against the Bucks.
Okogie hasn't been useful in fantasy this season, especially as of late. You're better off looking elsewhere for a speculative add if you're thinking about Okogie.
December 18, 2019, 11:03 pmShabazz NapierPG, Minnesota Timberwolves
Shabazz Napier came off the bench to the tune of 10 points, two rebounds and six assists on Wednesday night.
Napier had a chance to contribute with Jarrett Culver sidelined and was very average. Napier will only be relevant in deeper leagues, or if Minnesota catches the injury bug. Josh Okogie had a worse night finishing with three points and only one assist.

Josh Okogie had a productive outing in Wednesday's loss to the Jazz, posting 13 points on 3-of-8 shooting with three triples, five rebounds, one steal and one block in 31 minutes of action.
Okogie took advantage of the absence of Keita Bates-Diop (illness) and bounced back from a lackluster showing in his last game. Okogie has been flirting with top-100 value in 9-cat over the past week and is worth a look as an end-of-bench asset who does a bit of everything.
