    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.

    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 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 (knee) is being listed as questionable for Monday's road game against the Utah Jazz per the NBA official injury report.

    Okogie went through shoot-around and will be a game-time decision. Check back closer to tip-off but if he cannot play, Jarrett Culver and Jake Layman will soak up his minutes. If he can play, he may have an opportunity at an expanded role with Andrew Wiggins most likely sitting out.

    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.

    Josh Okogie will start for the Wolves on Monday in place of Jarrett Culver.

    Okogie has looked good off the bench and it has forced the hand of Wolves coach Ryan Saunders. Culver had been an inconsistent performer, so the move makes sense. Okogie has 31 points in his last two games but could stand to improve his 3-point shooting.

    Josh Okogie had another strong all-around game coming off the pine for the Wolves on Sunday, producing 17 points, eight rebounds, four assists, two 3-pointers, one steal and one block.

    Free-throw shooting continues to be a problem for Okogie (7-of-11 FT), but it is getting hard to ignore his across the board value at this point. The return of Jeff Teague (illness) will make things tougher, but Okogie's play should only improve as the season progresses. He could be a difference-maker down the line.

    Josh Okogie was moved back to the bench on Friday night but still had a solid line with 14 points, seven rebounds, two steals, a block and a 3-pointer.

    Okogie and Treveon Graham both logged 32 minutes in the overtime win but Okogie remains the superior fantasy play. Graham delivered eight points, three rebounds, two assists and two steals. Despite his frustrating bench role, Okogie is still averaging 1.4 steals in just 22.0 mpg and is inching closer to standard-league value.

    Josh Okogie started on Wednesday, scoring seven points on 3-of-4 shooting with four rebounds, two assists and a triple.

    Okogie drew the start over Treveon Graham (10 points, six rebounds, four assists, a steal and a block) but both players are just deep-league guys. Even though Graham had the better line tonight, Okogie has been a solid source of steals as a streamer.

    The Wolves have exercised Josh Okogie's third-year option.

    This was a formality, as Okogie is one of the more promising young players on the Wolves' roster. Okogie is currently fighting for scraps behind Andrew Wiggins, Treveon Graham, and Jake Layman, but his upside in the defensive categories render him a player worth watching. He and Jarrett Culver should get an opportunity to play as the season progresses.

    Josh Okogie was able to corral six rebounds, three steals and a block in 21 minutes on Wednesday night.

    Okogie only scored three points but his fantasy value will always stem from the defensive numbers. He's worth a look at the end of 12-team benches if you need steals and out-of-position blocks, but can otherwise be left on most wires outside of the 14-16-team range.
