Fantasy News

  • Anthony Tolliver - F - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Anthony Tolliver came off the bench for six points, two rebounds, three assists, three blocks and two 3-pointers in 22 minutes on Saturday night.

    Tolliver should be a solid 3-point specialist while Taj Gibson (calf) is sidelined but we wouldn't expect the blocks to keep up. Gorgui Dieng would make for a better add if he wasn't boxed into strictly center minutes, but alas he only managed three points, two rebounds and a block in 15 minutes.

  • Karl-Anthony Towns - F/C - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Karl-Anthony Towns had an amazing line in Saturday's 112-99 win against the Grizzlies with 33 points, 23 rebounds, three assists, a steal, one block and four 3-pointers.

    He also went 12-of-20 from the field and Towns has been proving all year long that he's one of the best fantasy players out there despite the slow start to the season because of the Jimmy Butler drama. Towns is on pace for another top-5 finish with averages of 24.7 points on 52.3 percent shooting, 12.5 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 1.7 blocks and 0.9 steals a game.

  • Andrew Wiggins - G/F - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Andrew Wiggins showed up on Saturday vs. the Grizzlies with 22 points, four rebounds, one assist, a block and a three in 35 minutes.

    Wiggins went 9-of-15 from the floor and has been a good streaming option if you're in need for points and triples. Despite his physical tools and playing time, he has never been consistent in putting up good lines and just continues to tease fantasy owners from time to time on what he can become.

  • Josh Okogie - G - Minnesota Timberwolves

    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.

  • Tyus Jones - G - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Tyus Jones scored 12 points on 4-of-8 shooting with three rebounds, nine dimes and a steal in 35 minutes on Saturday.

    With Jeff Teague (left foot) and Derrick Rose (left elbow) out for the rest of the season, Jones will be able to put up lines like this and reward fantasy owners who snagged him early. The steals and assists will always be consistent but the field goal shooting has never been that great to begin with.

  • Taj Gibson - F - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Taj Gibson (left calf strain) has been ruled out of Saturday's game against the Grizzlies.

    Gibson's second straight absence opens up more time for Gorgui Dieng, Anthony Tolliver and Keita Bates-Diop, though there isn't much there for most fantasy owners. Dieng has the highest upside of the bunch but it would take some consistent playing time before he becomes a serious add consideration.

  • Taj Gibson - F - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Taj Gibson (left calf strain) is being listed as questionable to play on Saturday vs. the Grizzlies.

    Gibson missed his last contest with the calf strain and though he’s a trooper, there’s a chance the Wolves hold him out or shut him down seeing as they’re out of the playoff hunt. If that ends up the reality, Gorgui Dieng would make a nice add though the Wolves don’t have a great schedule going forward.

  • Josh Okogie - G - Minnesota Timberwolves

    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.

  • Tyus Jones - G - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Tyus Jones continued his strong play on Thursday with 14 points on 6-of-15 shooting while handing out seven assists to go with two rebounds, two steals and a 3-pointer.

    Jones is a guy that should be owned in all leagues right now as Derrick Rose (left elbow) and Jeff Teague (left foot) have been shut down for the year. The shooting numbers won't be pretty and there are plenty of owners who won't put up with it, but the steals and assists are too good to leave on the wire and Jones is a guy who can tilt a matchup in your favor.

  • Andrew Wiggins - G/F - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Andrew Wiggins scored 20 points with five rebounds, two assists, a steal and a 3-pointer against the Hornets on Thursday.

    Wiggins went 8-for-15 from the floor but 3-for-7 at the line. He's a decent streaming source for points and triples but outside of that he can't be relied on for anything. There'll be the occasional line where it makes it tempting to hang onto him, but he just isn't standard-league material.

  • Karl-Anthony Towns - F/C - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Karl-Anthony Towns had a full-line on Thursday against the Hornets with 21 points, 16 rebounds, six assists, a steal, two blocks and two 3-pointers.

    He went 7-for-17 from the field and 5-for-6 at the line. Towns is going to end the year on a high note and could very well be the best fantasy player in these last weeks. The Wolves are tanking, but Towns looks like he'll play in every contest and as long as he's on the floor he's going to fill up the stat sheet.

  • Dario Saric - F - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Dario Saric scored 15 points on 5-of-10 shooting with seven rebounds, an assist and two 3-pointers on Thursday.

    Saric finally put up a decent line after getting ample opportunity and the Wolves have shut down three of their rotational players which means he has a good chance at late-round value to end the year. The Wolves play again on Saturday so if you need some points and rebounds he's worth holding onto.

  • Taj Gibson - F - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Taj Gibson (left calf strain) has been ruled out of Thursday's game against the Hornets.

    Gibson left Tuesday's game after sustaining the injury and with the Wolves in full shutdown mode, we might've seen the last of him this season. If Dario Saric is going to deliver it's going to have to happen now. Beyond that, Anthony Tolliver is on the radar as a 3-point specialist while Keita Bates-Diop should continue to post low-end lines for deeper leagues.

  • Jeff Teague - G - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Jeff Teague (left foot inflammation) has been shut down for the rest of the season.

    Tyus Jones officially gets the nod on the extra playing time left by Derrick Rose and Teague as the Timberwolves wave the white flag for this year.

  • Derrick Rose - G - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Derrick Rose (sore right elbow) will officially miss the rest of the season.

    With the Wolves not in the hunt for a playoff spot anymore, resting Rose seems like the best option for them since they have nothing to play for. It was a successful season nonetheless for Rose whose fantasy value was more than what we expected because of his 3-point streak.
