Shabazz Nappier scored 17 points on 5-of-13 shooting to go with three rebounds, seven assists and two triples.
Napier needs to be owned in all formats as long as he's starting for the Wolves. He's providing enough on a consistent basis to earn the spot at the end of your bench in fantasy teams.

Robert Covington had another full line on Monday with 15 points on 6-of-15 shooting while chipping in eight rebounds, two assists, three steals, a block and three 3-pointers.
Covington didn't shoot too well overall, but he hit enough triples to give us a classic RoCo line. Wherever he lands he should have no problem putting up early-mid round value.

Allen Crabbe (left patella subluxation) will not play against the Kings on Monday.
This will be Crabbe's third straight game that he's missed. He actually played around 20 minutes while healthy in his first few games with the Wolves, so he's a player to watch in case he starts firing away from deep like he's been known to do.

You can add the Bucks and Mavs to the list of teams interested in Robert Covington, according to Shams Charania.
The Rockets and Sixers are the other known interested parties, and last night it was reported that the Wolves are seeking two first-rounders for the 3-and-D stud. There are concerns about Covington's knees and he's shooting just .347 from deep this year, but he has a history of elite defense and shooting and would be a perfect fit as a combo forward in Milwaukee. The asking price is high because the Wolves aren't dead set on trading him, but moving Covington may also bring back enough assets for Minnesota to turn around and chase another player (like D'Angelo Russell).

Marc Stein is reporting that the Wolves are seeking two first-round picks in a potential Robert Covington trade.
Stein adds that the Rockets and Sixers are at the "front of the RoCo line," which matches up with reports from earlier in the year. The Wolves have been loosely shopping Covington since the summer but do not feel compelled to move him unless they get a great offer, which should be obvious given their asking price. Covington's stat set is wonderful and he may be one of the more bulletproof fantasy guys around in terms of unchanging value in a potential trade.

Allen Crabbe (left patella subluxation) is doubtful for Monday's matchup against the Kings.
While Crabbe is out Josh Okogie and Jarrett Culver will have more cushion to play through their inconsistencies. Crabbe is not part of the long-term plans anyway and will have to play well to return deep league value while coming off the bench. He has 3-point specialist upside when he is hot and healthy.

Karl-Anthony Towns dominated the Clippers' frontcourt with 32 points, 12 rebounds and two assists on 11-of-22 shooting during Saturday's loss.
KAT took charge during Saturday's loss, and led the Timberwolves in points and minutes played. Towns will look to keep the ball rolling on Monday versus the Kings.

Allen Crabbe (left patella subluxation) is listed as doubtful to face the Clippers on Saturday.
The Wolves have good depth on the wing, so Crabbe won't be missed all that much. Expect Josh Okogie to be and remain the beneficiary of Crabbe's absence.

Karl-Anthony Towns played a game-high 40 minutes in Monday's 129-133 OT loss to the Kings, putting up 23 points with eight boards, three dimes, a steal, a block and three 3-pointers.
Towns put up numbers across the board, but he had trouble taking care of the ball (seven turnovers) on the offensive end. He's still a guaranteed top-5 play whenever he takes the court, regardless of all the noise going on in Minnesota.

Andrew Wiggins scored a team-high 36 points on 13-of-21 shooting (3-for-6 FTs) with nine rebounds, eight dimes, a block and a career-high seven 3-pointers.
Wiggins was the leading scorer and dime dealer tonight in what has been a revitalizing season for his fantasy value. He's playing more point guard and it's working out well for everyone involved as his lines are a lot less empty than what they used to be. The triples are a new career-high and it's been great to see him play up to his potential.
January 27, 2020, 11:04 pmRobert CovingtonSF, Minnesota Timberwolves
Robert Covington scored 24 points on 8-of-12 shooting to go with seven rebounds and six triples on Monday.
Covington had an awful week last week, but has slammed the buy-low window shut with his performance tonight. He's as solid as they come in fantasy hoops and the defensive numbers should start to roll in soon.
January 27, 2020, 7:26 pmShabazz NapierPG, Minnesota Timberwolves
Shabazz Napier (illness) will be available to face the Kings on Monday.
Napier had a huge game on Saturday and continues to provide assists. Feel free to keep him active.

Allen Crabbe (left patella subluxation) will not play on Monday.
Crabbe had already been listed as doubtful with the knee issue. The former Cal Golden Bear is strictly a 3-point specialist and Josh Okogie is likely to see an uptick in minutes against the Kings.

Karl-Anthony Towns had his way on Saturday with 37 points on 13-of-23 shooting, adding eight rebounds, six assists, two steals and two blocks.
Towns went to the locker room in the third quarter but returned shortly after to finish out the game. KAT is back on track after missing time with injuries and should be a top-5 player the rest of the way. He's averaging 29.0 points, 7.5 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 2.7 threes in 30.8 minutes per game since he returned on January 17th.
January 25, 2020, 10:53 pmAndrew WigginsSF, Minnesota Timberwolves
Andrew Wiggins shot 8-of-18 from the floor and 4-of-11 from deep on his way to scoring 22 points with three rebounds and one assist in a 113-104 loss to the Thunder on Saturday.
Wiggins didn't bring many peripherals and shot 2-of-4 from the line, but the four threes made up for it. Wiggins has improved his three-point makes this season to 2.1 per game from 1.6 per game last season. He's cooled off from his hot start to the season, but he should be a mid-round value the rest of the season.
