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 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 (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.

Iowa Wolves' forward Kelan Martin gets the call up for Friday's game vs the Thunder.
Andrew Wiggins is questionable, and so is Jake Layman, so this move makes sense for a few games. Martin won't have any real impact fantasy wise, he can be left on the wire.

Jake Layman (toe) will not play Saturday against Phoenix, according to head coach Saunders.
The fact that Layman gets ruled out two days in advance suggests he could be out for a few more games. On Wednesday against the Jazz, it was Kelan Martin who stepped into his minutes, scoring 10 points with seven rebounds, one block, and two 3-pointers in 25 minutes.

Kelan Martin made his NBA debut on Friday, picking up a rebound and missing all three of his shots in five minutes of work.
Martin earned a two-way contract after some big performances in Summer League, but he's not on the radar in fantasy.

The Wolves have signed Summer League standout Kelan Martin to a two-way contract.
Martin performed well enough on the Wolves Summer League roster to be signed to a contract with the team heading into this season. He will likely spend most of his time playing for their G-League affiliate. If he is able to continue to improve his game, there may be an opportunity for him to be signed to a full-time NBA contract. Until that point in time, Martin won't have an impact within the fantasy landscape.

Kelan Martin led the Wolves in their 92-95 loss against the Grizzlies on Monday with 19 points on 6-of-14 shooting while adding three 3-pointers, five rebounds and an assist.
Martin helped the Wolves claw back into the game with a big third quarter, but the team just fell flat. He was by far the best player on the Wolves tonight, but it's still uncertain as to whether or not tonight's performance was enough to push him onto an NBA team to start next season.

Kelan Martin scored 23 points (8-of-14 shooting) with five 3-pointers in Saturday’s 108-82 win over the Mavs in Summer League.
Martin also added five rebounds and a block. He’s been playing with MHP Riesen Ludwigsburg in Germany after a successful four-year college career at Belmont. It’s unlikely that Martin turned enough heads to give himself strong NBA odds this season, but he’s certainly trying to close with a bang. The Wolves are one of the final four teams left standing in Vegas, so Martin will have at least one more chance at producing.
