Well, my friends, for most of us the season is over. We struggled through maintenance days, injuries, "Fiz" being used as a verb, tanking, the Bulls' and Pels' special brand of tanking and had a…

Josh Okogie had a rough go of it in the final game of his rookie season, going 0-for-3 from the field in 17 minutes to finish Wednesday's loss with no points, one rebound and a steal.
Okogie was elevated into the starting lineup when Robert Covington went down with his injury, though as the lowest-usage player in most lineup combinations his fantasy value wasn't anything to write home about. He did ride some big steals and blocks nights top top-50 value for a very brief stretch, but Okogie's top-230 value on the full year is far more indicative of what fantasy owners experienced. He's got a great set of physical tools and can be a great 3-and-D fantasy player in time.

Josh Okogie finished Sunday's home loss with eight points, three assists, two steals and three blocks.
Okogie was one of our favorite draft prospects because of his athleticism and defensive acumen, and he's really starting to post some quality lines in the second half of the season. If you need some steals and want a shot at bonus blocks out of a backcourt roster spot, Okogie makes for a fine add. Just don't expect a ton in the other categories.

Josh Okogie could only muster five points on 1-of-5 shooting, adding four rebounds and nothing else in 22 minutes on Saturday.
Okogie had been useful in deeper leagues over the past two weeks coming into tonight's game with top-100 value, but face-planted against a good Philadelphia team. Okogie should be able to maintain a value hovering around the top-100 considering he has averaged 32 minutes in that same timeframe. Gorgui Dieng finished with 13 points on 6-for-8 shooting but was only able to add three rebounds and a steal in 16 minutes.

Josh Okogie notched 21 points, five rebounds, four steals and three triples across 41 minutes of action in Friday's overtime victory over Golden State.
The 20-year-old Okogie tied his career high in both points and steals as he flashed the sort of production that makes him such an attractive dynasty piece for fantasy players moving forward. The Oklahoma State product is on a strong run of late that has him ranked in the top-50 over the last two weeks. With the Wolves out of playoff contention, he may see enough playing time down the stretch to help fantasy owners as a 3-and-D specialist.

Josh Okogie filled up the stat sheet with 17 points on 5-of-11 shooting while adding six rebounds, four assists, one steal, one block and a 3-pointer against the Grizzlies on Saturday.
Lines like this flash his potential and the damage he can do once he gets it together. Although, he's been known for his inconsistency but that comes with being a rookie. Fantasy owners can take a hard look at him if they have a streaming spot open and if the remaining games are in favor of Okogie blowing up or at least putting up a respectable line.

Josh Okogie netted 10 points on 5-of-11 shooting while adding three rebounds, two assists and two blocks against the Hornets on Thursday.
This is the third consecutive game for Okogie playing at least 30 minutes and also his third consecutive game scoring in double-figures. He's not the most optimal streamer due to his inconsistencies with peripheral stats and the fact that the Wolves still have high usage guys on the floor.

Josh Okogie put up 21 points on 8-of-14 shooting in a 117-102 loss to the Rockets on Sunday.
He added five rebounds, three assists, three triples and one steal to the box score. Okogie can flash his potential at times and have good performances like this one, but until he can string together a few it is best to leave him on the wire.

Josh Okogie flashed some of his upside in a 121-111 win over the Rockets on Wednesday as he dropped 16 points on 7-of-15 shooting with a filled up box in 32 minutes.
Okogie added three rebounds, four dimes, two treys, two steals and one block to round out his line for the night. His wonderful outing was besmudged by his 0-for-2 showing at the line. Take this explosion with a grain of salt as Andrew Wiggins was sitting this one out. Still, the aggressiveness and the results on the defensive end are to be cheered for, especially by his owners in dynasty leagues.

Josh Okogie says he's fine after sustaining a left hip pointer on Monday and is expected to play on Wednesday against the Rockets.
Okogie was unable to return to last night's game but isn't on Minnesota's injury report for tomorrow, so he's good to go for James Harden duty.

Josh Okogie scored 10 points on 3-of-6 shooting with a 3-pointer, four rebounds, an assist and two steals on Monday before exiting with a leg injury.
Okogie was favoring his leg and went to the locker room but later on returned to the bench. He doesn't do much even when given minutes so he can be left alone on the wire.

Josh Okogie started on Thursday and scored 13 points on 6-of-12 shooting with four rebounds, an assist, three steals and a triple.
Okogie continues to start for Robert Covington (ankle) who is still out indefinitely but he isn't doing much with the minutes. Tonight was a high point in what you'll get for owning Okogie and while he has some dynasty and DFS appeal, owners in standard leagues can steer away.

Josh Okogie had a forgettable performance on Sunday, going 1-for-10 from the field to finish the game with three points, two rebounds, on assist and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes.
He's fallen sharply back to earth since exploding for a career-high 21 points on January 22nd, failing to score in double figures and hurting owners with horrendous .298 shooting from the field on 9.4 attempts over his last five games. His only saving grace has been his 1.2 steals per game in that same span. Leave him on the wire.

Josh Okogie scored a season-high 21 points on 7-of-11 shooting (including four threes) with five rebounds, two assists and two steals in Tuesday's blowout win over the Suns.
If only Okogie could be as efficient as this every night (including 4-of-4 FTs), as his fantasy value this season has been tanked by bad percentages. His splits over the last two weeks aren't so bad, as he has returned solid late-round value in 24.5 mpg, but on the season he hasn't cracked the top-250 in a similar sample of 21.3 mpg. The Wolves might force him into more stat generation via attrition so give him a look, but beware the stat set issues.

Josh Okogie played 42 minutes in Saturday's home win, notching 17 points, five rebounds, two assists, a steal and a 3-pointer.
Okogie was down to 23 minutes in Minnesota's last game with Derrick Rose and Jeff Teague both in the lineup but big minutes should be going to him over the next couple games at least. Rose sat tonight and Teague left after re-injuring his left ankle — an issue that cost him nine games earlier this year. Okogie is one of the bigger beneficiaries whenever a wing or guard goes down in Minnesota, though he's probably still best left for 16-teamers.
