    Naz Reid produced 13 points (5-of-12 FG), five rebounds, one 3-pointer and one steal against the Nuggets on Sunday.

    Reid only saw 22 minutes and picked up five fouls in the process. He has now had five fouls in three straight outings, and that issue could cripple his value in the long run if he does not get it under control. It'd be nice to see Reid pick up some blocks, but the upside remains tantalizing for as long as Karl-Anthony Towns is out of the picture. James Johnson also remains a productive option for the Wolves, emerging with 13 points, five rebounds, four assists, two steals and one 3-pointer while coming off the bench. Johnson is a standard league pickup while KAT is absent.

    Naz Reid tied his career-high with nine rebounds on Friday, adding 19 points and three steals in the Wolves' loss to the Celtics.

    Reid is starting with Karl-Anthony Towns on the shelf for the next couple of weeks. He looks very good and is making the most of his opportunity. Reid's per-36 minute numbers have been mouthwatering all season and it is his time to shine. He should be one of the hottest waiver pickups this week.

    Naz Reid will draw the start when the Wolves clash with the Celtics on Friday.

    With Karl-Anthony Towns dealing with a left wrist fracture that will be re-evaluated in two weeks, Reid has a nice couple of weeks of value ahead of him. He will have to coexist with James Johnson in a timeshare, but he has enough upside between the blocks and 3-pointers to deliver standard league value as a starter.

    Karl-Anthony Towns (left wrist) has been ruled out of Wednesday's game vs. the Hornets and he will undergo further evaluation over the All-Star break.

    This is the first that we are hearing about this injury and we will need to wait to get more news before deciding to stream anyone in particular. Naz Reid, James Johnson and Juan Hernangómez just became a lot more attractive in DFS on Wednesday's slate.

    Naz Reid scored 14 points on 5-of-13 shooting and grabbed nine rebounds in 14 minutes off the bench on Saturday.

    Reid also hit four triples to cap off a stellar performance in limited minutes. Reid will struggle to get minutes in the front court with Karl-Anthony Towns, Juancho Hernangomez and James Johnson ahead of him. Reid can be left on the waiver wire.

    Karl-Anthony Towns is once again questionable for Friday's game vs. the Pacers with a sprained left knee.

    For the last couple of games, KAT was dealing with an illness but that is not on Thursday's edition of the injury report. KAT appears to only be questionable with a left knee sprain that has now cost him 15 games. Gorgui Dieng and Naz Reid will continue to see an increase in minutes for as long as KAT remains sidelined. If KAT is on your roster, make sure to check the news before tip-off to see if KAT is finally able to return.

    Karl-Anthony Towns will once again sit out for Wednesday's matchup vs. the Pacers as he works himself back from an illness and a left knee sprain.

    This will mark KAT's 15th consecutive absence. Naz Reid and Gorgui Dieng will continue to see more opportunity at center until KAT is healthy enough for a return. The next opportunity for KAT to play will come on Friday vs. the Pacers.

    Naz Reid scored 20 points, a career-high, on Monday vs. the Thunder, adding four 3-pointers, one rebound, one assist and one block in 18 minutes.

    The Wolves have been banged up for a while, and Reid can get you a few threes in a streaming spot. He probably won't have a role solid enough to hold onto for long.

    Naz Reid strutted his stuff on Saturday, exploding for a fresh career-best 14 points on 5-of-14 shooting with two rebounds, one assist and one trey in 18 minutes off the bench.

    Reid's time in the fantasy spotlight may be shortlived as Karl-Anthony Towns is expected back any game now. Naz is more of a dynasty stash than a deep-league season-long asset at this point in his career.

    Naz Reid surprised on Thursday night, scoring 13 points with four rebounds, a block and three 3-pointers in 20 minutes of action against the Warriors.

    That's three straight games with around 20 minutes for Reid, and he's got three blocks, eight 3-pointers and 37 points combined in that short run. He's definitely someone to consider picking up in deeper leagues — he should already be rostered in 20-teamers right now — while Karl-Anthony Towns remains sidelined.

    Karl-Anthony Towns will not play on Thursday vs. the Warriors as he continues to deal with a sprained left knee.

    Thursday's game marks KAT's ninth consecutive absence. Gorgui Dieng should continue to be started in all fantasy formats for as long as KAT remains out while Jordan Bell and Naz Reid should see additional opportunity and can be used as low-cost options in DFS.

    Karl-Anthony Towns is officially questionable to face the Warriors as he continues to nurse a sprained left knee.

    KAT has missed eight consecutive games and the Wolves have only been able to win two of those contests. They desperately need their All-Star center back in order to have a chance at a playoff berth. Gorgui Dieng will continue to be relevant in standard leagues for as long as KAT remains out while Jordan Bell, Noah Vonleh (questionable) and Naz Reid should also see an increase in playing time.

    Noah Vonleh (left gluteal contusion) will miss Wednesday's matchup vs. the Bucks.

    Vonleh will miss his second consecutive game on Wednesday. Gorgui Dieng, Jordan Bell, Keita Bates-Diop and Naz Reid will all see an increase in minutes with the Wolves down six bodies. They can all be looked at in DFS while Dieng will consistently provide standard league value for as long as Karl Anthony-Towns remains sidelined.

    Naz Reid jumped into the rotation on Monday and had 13 points on 5-of-16 shooting, four boards, one dime, one steal, one block and three treys in 20 minutes.

    The Wolves were without five regular frontcourt players on Monday, so Reid was given a big opportunity. He took advantage, launching 10 3-point attempts. He may not get a chance to play this much again this season, but he's worth a look in deep leagues if most of the same players miss the Wolves' next game on Wednesday.

    The Wolves have recalled Naz Reid from Iowa of the G League.

    Reid has shown off his shot blocking and long-range shooting in the G League. With Treveon Graham and Andrew Wiggins fighting illnesses while Karl-Anthony Towns remains out, Reid has been summoned for depth.
