  • Luol Deng
    F, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Luol Deng (sore left Achilles) sat out Wednesday's season finale against the Nuggets.

    Deng's signing under the Thibs regime elicited some chuckles but it ended up being much ado about nothing. The veteran only logged 22 appearances this year and sat out the final 21 games of the season due to left Achilles soreness. He was around the top-250 on a per-game basis and deep-league owners were able to capitalize on that a little bit since pretty much all of his run came in one big stretch in February, but Deng could be looking at the end of the line.

  • C.J. Williams
    G, Minnesota Timberwolves

    C.J. Williams scored six points with two 3-pointers in 18 minutes on Wednseday night.

    Williams was actually a semi-regular contributor for the Clippers last season but averaged about eight minutes a night through 15 appearances for Minnesota. He was about irrelevant as it gets, sitting outside the top-450.

  • Jeff Teague
    G, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Jeff Teague (left foot inflammation) underwent successful left ankle surgery on Wednesday.

    Hopefully he'll be back injury free next year, as it was clear he was never healthy from the get go.

  • Taj Gibson
    F, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Taj Gibson (left calf strain) will sit out Minnesota's regular season finale against the Nuggets.

    This one doesn't come as a surprise, as Gibson hasn't suited up for nearly a month. Dario Saric will continue to see minutes, while Keita Bates-Diop could see extended run as well.

  • Karl-Anthony Towns
    F/C, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Karl-Anthony Towns has officially been ruled out for Wednesday's regular season finale vs. the Nuggets.

    With Towns out, Gorgui Dieng will assume the starting role and get all the burn he can handle. He is a worthy DFS play regardless of how the match up with Denver goes.

  • Taj Gibson
    F, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Taj Gibson (left calf strain) is doubtful for Wednesday's game with the Nuggets.

    The Wolves never shut Gibson down officially but we all knew where this was headed as soon as he popped up on the injury report a handful of games ago. Dario Saric, Anthony Tolliver and Keita Bates-Diop will look to finish their seasons on strong notes here.

  • Jerryd Bayless
    G, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Jerryd Bayless (right ankle contusion) has been ruled out of Wednesday's season finale against the Nuggets.

    Bayless also missed Tuesday's game, and his absence means we'll see Cam Reynolds and Jared Terrell log the backup point guard minutes.

  • Karl-Anthony Towns
    F/C, Minnesota Timberwolves

    The Wolves are listing Karl-Anthony Towns as doubtful for Wednesday's season finale.

    Towns missed Tuesday's game for right knee inflammation, so it's either more of that or a rest day for the young star. Gorgui Dieng is likely to start again and is worth a long look in all formats.

  • Karl-Anthony Towns
    F/C, Minnesota Timberwolves

    The Wolves are planning to open a search for a new President of Basketball Operations, with owner Glen Taylor preferring to keep general manager Scott Layden and interim coach Ryan Saunders as part of a revised organizational structure, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

    Layden survived the purge of Tom Thibodeau in early January and has previous experience as a GM with the Jazz and the Knicks. Saunders, 32, is the youngest head coach in the league, but he has earned the endorsement of franchise star Karl-Anthony Towns and is expected to get an extension this summer.

  • Andrew Wiggins
    G/F, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Andrew Wiggins shot 7-for-17 from the floor for 16 points with three boards, three assists, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes against the Raptors on Tuesday.

    Wiggins wasn't taking on the Thunder so he wasn't at his best, but he still proved useful. His usage spiked some with Karl-Anthony Towns sitting, but he still hasn't put it all together for a full season.

  • Dario Saric
    F, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Dario Saric shot 5-for-12 from the floor for 15 points with nine boards and two 3-pointers in 24 minutes against the Raptors on Tuesday.

    Saric hasn't been able to put up the numbers he was capable of in Philadelphia. He has the talent to put up middle-round value, but he hasn't put it together yet on Minnesota.

  • Tyus Jones
    G, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Tyus Jones shot 5-for-9 for 11 points with 10 assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes in a loss to the Raptors on Tuesday.

    Jones has held down the backcourt for the Wolves after injuries to Jeff Teague and Derrick Rose. Roll him out there for the season finale.

  • Taj Gibson
    F, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Taj Gibson (left calf strain) is out for Tuesday's game against the Raptors.

    Dario Saric, who's had a top-50 9-cat value the past week, will look to continue his strong finish to the season. Anthony Tolliver is in line for extra minutes tonight.

  • Jerryd Bayless
    G, Minnesota Timberwolves

    The Wolves are listing Jerryd Bayless (right ankle contusion) as out for Tuesday's game against the Raptors.

    Jared Terrell and Cameron Reynolds will pick up some additional minutes off the bench behind Tyus Jones. There isn't much fantasy value here.

  • Karl-Anthony Towns
    F/C, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Karl-Anthony Towns (right knee inflammation) has been ruled out of Tuesday's matchup with the Raptors.

    Gorgui Dieng will get the start and is worth a long look with not much in the way of competition.
