  • Taj Gibson - F - Minnesota Timberwolves

    A left calf strain forced Taj Gibson to miss the final 11 games of the season.

    Gibson ended the year with averages of 10.8 points, 6.5 rebounds, 0.8 steals and 0.6 blocks on .566 shooting in 24.1 mpg. His minutes really declined over the final two months as the Wolves fell out of the race and Ryan Saunders chose to get a better look at younger options, and the late swoon leaves Gibson with top-150/130 value in 8/9-cat. His starting days might be over, so a late-round ceiling is a safe expectation if you have interest in rostering Taj in the future.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Gibson hasn’t been officially ruled out for the season but it’s looking like he’s done for the year. Anthony Tolliver will get some extra run but isn’t an ideal option for fantasy.

    Taj Gibson is doubtful for Friday against the Heat with a left calf strain.

    Gibson will probably not go again in this one, so it's possibly just a curtain call on his season at this point. The end of the season shutdowns are undefeated.

    Taj Gibson (left calf strain) will miss Wednesday's game against the Mavs.

    Gibson hasn't played since March 19, so you can't expect the vet to suit up anytime soon. Even though he is an ultimate tough guy, tanking and the end of the season gets the best of everyone.

    Taj Gibson (left calf strain) will miss Monday's game against the Blazers.

    Gibson will miss his sixth game in a row tonight. Anthony Tolliver has become a solid 3-point specialist off the bench while Dario Saric continues to sit just outside the top-150 despite starting

    Taj Gibson (left calf strain) is doubtful for Monday's game against Portland.

    With Gibson likely out, it will be Dario Saric and Gorgui Dieng soaking up his minutes once again. Saric is a bit inconsistent, but both are solid plays if Gibson is indeed out.

    Taj Gibson has officially been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Sixers with a left calf strain.

    With Gibson out that means Dario Saric and Gorgui Dieng will take up those minutes. Saric has had plenty of chances to produce, but is still inconsistent whereas Dieng had a solid outing last game. Both players are decent options.

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

    Gibson has missed the last four games and it's possible that we've seen the last of him this season. Anthony Tolliver has emerged as a solid 3-point specialist from a frontcourt spot in Gibson's absence while Dario Saric has yet to take advantage of the opportunity. Gorgui Dieng also had a great game on Friday, but that may have had more to do with foul trouble for Karl-Anthony Towns than anything else.
