    Noah Vonleh (left gluteal contusion) will miss Wednesday's matchup vs. the Bucks.

    Vonleh will miss his second consecutive game on Wednesday. Gorgui Dieng, Jordan Bell, Keita Bates-Diop and Naz Reid will all see an increase in minutes with the Wolves down six bodies. They can all be looked at in DFS while Dieng will consistently provide standard league value for as long as Karl Anthony-Towns remains sidelined.

    Treveon Graham will not face the Bucks on Wednesday as he is dealing with flu-like symptoms.

    The Wolves will be without six key players on Wednesday and are very likely to lose against one of the best teams in the NBA. Shabazz Napier, Jarrett Culver, Keita Bates-Diop, Kelan Martin and Jaylen Nowell could all be viewed as interesting low-cost DFS tournament options with the Wolves decimated by injuries.

  • Jarrett Culver
    G-F, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Jarrett Culver put up a career-high 21 points with five rebounds, three assists, three steals, one block and three 3-pointers in 38 minutes for the short-handed Wolves in a 122-115 overtime win over the Nets on Monday.

    Culver shot 8-for-21 from the floor and 2-for-4 from the line as he was suddenly the main man for the Wolves tonight. They'll soon have their leading scorers back, so don't expect to see much more of this from Culver just yet. Keita Bates-Diop also deserves mention for his 15 points, seven boards, one dime, two steals, two blocks and one trey over 27 minutes.

  • Treveon Graham
    SF, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Treveon Graham (illness) will not play on Monday against the Nets.

    Graham doesn't make much fantasy impact, but Jarrett Culver may see more time in this one. Keita Bates-Diop should also benefit from more opportunities.

  • Andrew Wiggins
    SF, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Andrew Wiggins (illness) is unlikely to play during Saturday's game versus the Cavs.

    This gives a big boost to Shabazz Napier, Robert Covington and Jeff Teague as far as usage. All become viable DFS plays, while we could look at Keita Bates-Diop for some value.

  • Jake Layman
    SF, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Jake Layman (left toe sprain) has been ruled out of Saturday's game versus the Blazers.

    Layman is still without an actual timetable and shouldn't be rostered in any league. Keita Bates-Diop will continue to see steady minutes off of the bench while Layman is out.

    SF, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Keita Bates-Diop (illness) played 11 minutes and compiled no stats on Friday after missing one game.

    Diop missed his only shot on the night as he may have had some lingering illness effects. The 2018 second round pick is averaging 7.2 points and 1.3 triples in 18.5 minutes with a 51.5 field goal percentage on the season so he should see better days ahead is off the standard league radar.

    Keita Bates-Diop (illness) is available to play on Friday for the Wolves.

    KBD missed one game with flu-like symptoms but it appears that he's been cleared to play. He's just a deep-league guy when he's healthy and should take up some of Josh Okogie's minutes tonight.

    Keita Bates-Diop is questionable to face the Clippers on Friday with flu-like symptoms.

    Bates-Diop is in jeopardy of missing his second consecutive contest with an illness. If he misses Friday's game, expect to see more minutes from the starters and Jeff Teague off the bench.

    Keita Bates-Diop (illness) will not play in Wednesday's matchup against the Jazz.

    With Bates-Diop ruled out, Treveon Graham and Josh Okogie could see additional opportunity.

  • Andrew Wiggins
    SF, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Andrew Wiggins (left thumb sprain) is considered questionable to face the Warriors on Monday.

    Wiggins played 29 minutes on Sunday, but it's uncertain whether he can play two games in two days. At 24.6 points per game, he is on pace for the best scoring average of his career. Keita Bates-Diop could see more action if Wiggins does not suit up.

    SF, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Keita Bates-Diop slowed down substantially on Friday, missing all seven of his shots to finish scoreless in 16 minutes.

    Despite Andrew Wiggins missing this one, KBD saw a six-game low in playing time and had his performance bottom out to match. His surprising middle-round run over the last couple of weeks came to a screeching halt tonight, and it wouldn't be a shock if Bates-Diop returned to fleeting deep-league relevance going forward. You can give him another game or two just in case this, and not the random five-game burst, is the aberration.

  • 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.

    Jake Layman (left toe sprain) is being ruled out ahead of Wednesday's matchup with the Mavs.

    Treveon Graham, Josh Okogie, and Keita Bates-Diop will all continue to see extra minutes on the wing while Layman remains out.

    SF, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Keita Bates-Diop continued to thrive off of the bench scoring 10 points, five rebounds and two 3-pointers in 25 minutes during Sunday's loss to the Grizzlies.

    KBD has been playing well with his minutes and has been seeing the slowly rise over the course of the last week. KBD could produce in multiple categories and is worth keeping an eye on if the minutes could remain in the mid-20's.
