  • Karl-Anthony Towns

    Karl-Anthony Towns (right knee inflammation) is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Raptors.

    If KAT can't go, Gorgui Dieng would be in line for a substantial minutes boost. Make sure to check back in on the situation as we get closer to tip-off.

    Jerryd Bayless (right ankle contusion) is questionable to play against the Raptors on Tuesday.

    Bayless was surprisingly scratched on Sunday, and it allowed Jared Terrell and Cam Reynolds to play all the backup minutes behind Tyus Jones. There's not much fantasy appeal there.

  • Luol Deng

    Luol Deng (sore left Achilles) has been ruled out of Tuesday's game with the Raptors.

    Deng last played on February 27 and the Wolves have yet to just rule him out for the season, though that's what's happening.

  • Taj Gibson

    Taj Gibson (left calf strain) is being termed doubtful for Tuesday's game with the Raptors.

    That's generous, because he's not going to play. Dario Saric has put a few nice games together, so that's where you'll want to look if your fantasy season is still rolling.

  • Karl-Anthony Towns
    F/C, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Karl-Anthony Towns had yet another big game with 35 points, seven rebounds, two steals and a block in Sunday's 126-132 loss to the Thunder.

    Towns went 11-of-18 from the field and 13-of-14 from the line, and he also forced Steven Adams into six fouls in just 27 minutes. KAT's going to continue to field questions as long as the Wolves keep missing the playoffs, but fantasy owners know how dangerous he is.

  • Tyus Jones
    G, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Tyus Jones matched his career-high with 13 assists on Sunday, rounding out his line with 10 points and five rebounds in 35 minutes.

    It's a bummer that Jones couldn't add in any more stats, but it's still a nice game to add onto his middle-round resume of late. Jerryd Bayless wasn't around to eat into his workload today so Cam Reynolds (seven minutes) and Jared Terrell (four points in 13 minutes) handled the backup work. It's Jones or bust from a fantasy perspective.

  • Andrew Wiggins
    G/F, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Andrew Wiggins posted 24 points, five rebounds, four assists, two steals and three 3-pointers while shooting 9-of-15 from the field on Sunday.

    Efficient games like this keep fantasy owners coming back to the Wiggins well, though we'd need to see it happen consistently before buying into it. Maybe it'll happen next year. It probably won't.

  • Dario Saric
    F, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Dario Saric was able to deliver 23 points (9-of-15 shooting) with five 3-pointers and a block in Sunday's loss to the Thunder.

    Saric hasn't done much with his opportunity lately, falling outside the top-150 over the last couple of weeks. That said, we've seen him deliver middle-round value over full seasons before and he remains one of the higher-upside players that's likely on your waiver wire. This season's track record doesn't inspire a ton of confidence but the situation is right with Taj Gibson ailing, so perhaps Saric can finish strong in his two games next week.

  • Josh Okogie
    G, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Josh Okogie finished Sunday's home loss with eight points, three assists, two steals and three blocks.

    Okogie was one of our favorite draft prospects because of his athleticism and defensive acumen, and he's really starting to post some quality lines in the second half of the season. If you need some steals and want a shot at bonus blocks out of a backcourt roster spot, Okogie makes for a fine add. Just don't expect a ton in the other categories.

  • Taj Gibson
    F, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Taj Gibson (left calf strain) will not play on Sunday.

    The Wolves keep listing Gibson as doubtful but he's likely done for the year. Dario Saric and Anthony Tolliver should continue to split the power forward minutes, but they're not quite 12-team assets.

  • Jerryd Bayless
    G, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Jerryd Bayless (right ankle contusion) will not play on Sunday.

    Bayless was a late addition to the injury report, and his absence will mean more minutes for Tyus Jones and Cam Reynolds. Outside of Jones there isn't a ton to see in Minnesota's point guard rotation.

  • Taj Gibson
    F, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Taj Gibson (left calf strain) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Thunder.

    Gibson isn't officially ruled out for the season, but it's not looking good. Anthony Tolliver should get extra run again, but is not much of a fantasy option.

  • Tyus Jones
    G, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Tyus Jones played well as the Wolves edged out the Heat 111-109 on Friday, delivering 12 points, six rebounds, four assists and two steals in 31 minutes.

    Jones is a lock for solid production down the stretch with top-65 value over the last week. He's a solid source of assists and steals and will be a player to watch as he could fare prominently in the Wolves' developmental plans for the future.

  • Karl-Anthony Towns
    F/C, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Karl-Anthony Towns struggled in Friday's win over the Heat, committing a season-high 11 turnovers while scoring just 13 points (5-of-10 shooting).

    He was slowed down by foul trouble at spots in the game, but KAT still managed to post a serviceable, albeit moderately disappointing line with him adding 12 boards, four dimes, one trey and one steal to the box score. This rough night notwithstanding, KAT should still be able to finish 2018-19 as a top-5 player in 9-cat.

  • Gorgui Dieng
    C, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Gorgui Dieng continued on his end-of-season explosion trail on Friday as he dropped 19 points on 8-of-15 shooting with four rebounds, one assist, one steal and two blocks in 22 minutes.

    "Better late than never" as they say and so goes Dieng as 2018-19 winds to a close. He's been a top-100 asset over the last week is currently worth a pickup for a boost in big-man stats.
