Muhammad contributed 13 points (4-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 5-7 FT) and two rebounds over 20 minutes in Saturday's 112-100 loss to the Trail Blazers. It was a typical stat line for Muhammad, who usually offers solid point totals relative to playing time and a modest amount of rebounds. The fourth-year pro has hit double digits in the scoring column in five of the last six games and is averaging a solid 11.9 points across 22.0 minutes in 12 March contests.
Muhammad registered 18 points (8-15 FG, 2-3 3Pt), four rebounds and one steal across 24 minutes in a 100-93 loss to the Spurs on Tuesday. The season-ending injury to Nemanja Bjelica (foot) leaves Muhammad as the unquestioned top option off the bench for the Timberwolves, and he's shined in that capacity the last four games. Muhammad is averaging 18.5 points (on 57.7% shooting from the field), 3.5 rebounds and 1.0 assist in 26.8 minutes per game during that span, and could be worth a look in deeper or mid-sized leagues for those in need of additional scoring.
Muhammad scored 20 points (8-13 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-5 FT) while adding six rebounds, an assist and a steal in 24 minutes off the bench during Sunday's 123-109 loss to the Pelicans. It's the second time in three games Muhammad has scored 20 or more, but he scored in single digits in three of five games prior to that, highlighting his inconsistent role and production. Overall, the 24-year-old has seen his minutes, scoring and rebounding decline for the second straight season, and he might need a change of scenery in the offseason to regain his fantasy utility even in deeper formats.
Muhammad finished with 15 points (7-10 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT) with two assists and one rebound over 28 minutes in Friday's 123-105 loss against the Heat. Muhammad is a bit erratic with his shot but occasionally he'll turn in a dandy line like Friday. He remains useful only in deeper head-to-head fantasy leagues. Muhammad has even less value in rotisserie formats due to the fact he scores and does little else.
Muhammad scored 21 points (7-14, 0-5 3Pt, 7-8 FT) while adding three rebounds, one assist and one block across 31 minutes in Wednesday's 117-104 loss to the Celtics. It was Muhammad's highest point total in the last fourteen games as he shot his usual percentage from the floor, but made his money from the charity stripe, collecting seven points from the line. Given that he doesn't usually reach 20 minutes in a game, his upside for games like these is capped, but on the random nights where he gets ample run, he shows a strong ability to knock down shots.
