    Rookie forward Kelan Martin played in 31 games off the bench for the Wolves, finishing the season ranked outside the top-300 in categories formats.

    Martin wasn't expected to play much for the Wolves this season but carved out a bench role at times throughout the season. He was quite busy, as he also played in 23 games in the G League (averaging 18.4 PPG) with the Iowa Wolves. Martin likely figures to shuttle back and forth between the two again next season, but he had a successful run in his rookie campaign after going undrafted in 2018 and spending a season with MHP Riesen Ludwigsburg in Germany.

    Kelan Martin (left ankle sprain) is listed out for Tuesday's game.

    Martin doesn't have a large enough role in Minnesota to have him on the fantasy radar and his absence has little impact in fantasy.

    Kelan Martin (left ankle sprain) will not play on Sunday vs. the Pelicans.

    He only played five minutes in Friday's game due to injury and outside of that he hasn't really been apart of the offense so he's not worth owning anywhere.

    Kelan Martin (left ankle sprain) is doubtful to play on Sunday.

    Martin was forced from Friday's game because of the injury, finishing with two points in five minutes. Martin's been working with a low-minute role anyway so there's minimal fantasy impact.

    Kelan Martin (left ankle sprain) is out for the rest of the game on Friday against the Magic.

    As we said before, he isn't fantasy-relevant. Leave him on the wire.

    Kelan Martin is headed to the locker room on Friday during the Wolves' game against the Magic.

    The Wolves have yet to provide an update. Even with the injuries and bad record the Wolves are dealing with, Martin hasn't been usable in fantasy.

    Kelan Martin put up a career-high 21 points (7-of-15 FG), four rebounds, three 3-pointers and a block vs. the Nuggets on Sunday.

    Martin somehow received 29 minutes on Sunday, and nine players received 15 or more minutes for the Wolves before this was all said and done. Back in January Martin had a role while Andrew Wiggins was out, but it is hard to imagine Martin doing this again anytime soon. Just keep an eye on him in deep leagues incase he does emerge with a consistent rotation spot.

    Kelan Martin started on Wednesday and scored nine points on 3-of-7 shooting to go with two steals and one block in 22 minutes.

    Martin could be out of the rotation when Juancho Hernangomez and Malik Beasley join the Timberwovles so look past this line and leave him on the waiver wire.

  • Andrew Wiggins
    SF, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Andrew Wiggins (illness) practiced with the team on Saturday and is traveling with them to Cleveland for Sunday's game.

    Wiggins has been out the last four games but should be on the verge of a return with this news and may even play on Sunday. Shabazz Napier has taken on a bigger scoring role with 20+ points in each of the last three games so that may be reduced a little when Wiggins returns. Kelan Martin has payed 29.3 minutes over the last four games filling in for Wiggins and will undoubtedly take the biggest hit.

    Kelan Martin made another start on Thursday night and was able to notch 12 points, eight rebounds, an assist and a 3-pointer in 29 minutes.

    Martin shot just 4-of-12 but anyone who rolled the dice in DFS tonight should count this as a win. He's been up over 23 mpg in each of the last four games and is a short-term add in deeper leagues with Minnesota missing as many as six regulars these days.

  • Treveon Graham
    SF, Minnesota Timberwolves

    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.

    Kelan Martin started and produced nine points (4-of-8 FGs), nine rebounds, one block and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes in an overtime win vs. the Nets on Monday.

    Martin may never play this many minutes again in his career. He benefitted from overtime and multiple Wolves missing this game, so keep that in mind before overreacting.

  • Noah Vonleh
    PF, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Noah Vonleh (left gluteal contusion) is now questionable for Monday's game against the Nets.

    Vonleh hadn't been on the injury report, so this is a bit concerning. Be ready to make other plans if Vonleh was in yours. Kelan Martin will get the start tonight in case you're looking for an alternative.

    Treveon Graham (flu-like symptoms) is being listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Nets.

    Graham had slowly but surely been ceding his SF minutes to younger, more talented players. If he's active, the only fantasy ramifications are that he's hurt the minutes of Jarrett Culver, Keita Bates-Diop and Kelan Martin. He's off the fantasy radar.

    Kelan Martin scored 17 points on 6-of-15 shooting, adding six rebounds and a steal in Saturday's loss to the Cavs.

    Martin played 30 minutes off the bench and made the most of it by turning out a career-high 17 points. Filling in for an injured Andrew Wiggins the rookie was leaned on to provide offense for an otherwise flat Wolves team. He is not an option for any fantasy format but should still be proud of his own achievement tonight.
