    Josh Okogie played well against the Lakers on Sunday as he put up 18 points and four rebounds on 4-of-8 shooting.

    Okogie knocked down three triples and made all seven of his attempts from the stripe. Jarrett Culver chipped in 12 points on 5-of-6 shooting and Keita Bates-Diop scored 11 points on 4-of-5 shooting with two blocks. All three should not be on standard league radars, but Bates-Diop offers the highest upside.

    Josh Okogie put up 12 points in 33 minutes on Friday, adding three rebounds and two 3-pointers.

    It's been said that Okogie will be moving back into the starting five, which just makes sense considering where the Wolves are at on their development curve. The athletic wing can deliver standard-league numbers as a 3-and-D guy so keep a close eye on him. Treveon Graham moved to the bench and played only 14 minutes.

  • Jake Layman
    SF, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Jake Layman (left toe sprain) has been ruled out ahead of Friday's matchup against the Thunder.

    This will mark Layman's seventh straight missed game. Treveon Graham, Josh Okogie and Keita Bates-Diop will all continue to see more opportunity while Layman is sidelined.

    Josh Okogie (left knee soreness) is cleared to play on Sunday.

    Okogie isn't on the inactive list, so we're using some deductive reasoning here. His steals and blocks have dried up over the last couple games but you can put him in your lineup if he'd normally be there.

    Josh Okogie (left knee soreness) scored 11 points off the bench on Wednesday against the Spurs, hitting 3-of-5 shots (including two threes) with eight rebounds and three assists in 25 minutes.

    Okogie isn't producing enough to be owned in fantasy leagues but keep an eye on OG Anunoby for inspiration on a value change. It might not happen this season, but looking forward you have to think he at least has a shot at it.

    Josh Okogie (knee) is available to play on Wednesday.

    Okogie has been bothered by lingering knee soreness for the last few games. He looks good to go and should be able to resume providing value for owners in deep leagues.

    Josh Okogie (left knee soreness) is being listed as probable for Wednesday's game against the Spurs.

    Okogie came off the bench on Monday behind Jarrett Culver and Treveon Graham. The three will continue to split the majority of minutes on the wing until Jake Layman returns and adds himself into the mix.

    Josh Okogie said on Monday that his knee soreness has been nagging him for a while, and it’s something he and the Wolves will have to monitor going forward.

    “Some days, it’s like a roller coaster,” Okogie said. “Some days it feels great. Some days it doesn’t. But coach Ryan Saunders has definitely been there supporting me making sure I get my knees back healthy and I’m doing everything I can from a training staff standpoint.” Okogie missed a game against the Rockets on November16th before playing in both games against the Jazz last week. He then sat out again on Saturday when the Wolves lost to the Suns. Coming off a busy summer where he participated in the Wolves’ summer league and then represented Nigeria in the FIBA World Cup, he admitted that his condition was related to how active he has been. The Wolves will probably take it easy with their young guard and we should expect to see him get more rest days until he s back to feeling 100 percent.

    Josh Okogie will play on Monday after stating that his left knee is "feeling good."

    Okogie will be able to help fill in for Shabazz Napier. He can contribute rebounds and blocks but doesn't play enough to be rostered outside of deep leagues.

    Josh Okogie (left knee soreness) says that his knee is "feeling good" on Monday.

    Okogie remains questionable to face the Hawks tonight, but if nothing else it's good to know that he's feeling better. A return will take minutes from Jarrett Culver, and deep-leaguers can consider Okogie a viable option for steals and blocks. The athletic wing has been battling the issue for over a week but has only missed two (non-consecutive) games.

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

    His knee soreness has been a lingering problem as he was downgraded from playing to out before last Wednesday's game. The Wolves may opt to give Okogie a few more days rest.

    Josh Okogie (left knee soreness) is questionable for Saturday's game against the Suns.

    Okogie played through this issue all week already, and the Wolves are without Robert Covington (personal) and Jake Layman (left toe sprain) so don't count Okogie out yet. He's been up and down throughout the year, but has shown enough potential for consideration in 14-team leagues.

    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.
