    Timberwolves' Shabazz Muhammad: Scores season-high 25 points

    Muhammad scored a season-high 25 points with three rebounds in 33 minutes in Saturday's win over Memphis. Muhammad continues to make a case for a larger role and a spot in the starting lineup. He's averaging 31.2 minutes and 15.6 points per game in his last four games.

    Timberwolves' Shabazz Muhammad: Scores 15 points Friday

    Muhammad had 15 points (5-12 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 4-4 FT) and four rebounds in 34 minutes during the Timberwolves' 113-93 loss against the Thunder on Friday. Muhammad played the second most minutes on his team next to Andrew Wiggins, Muhammad continues to earn quality playing time lately, and he is responding with solid play--posting 15.0 points (45.5 FG, 38.5 3Pt, 76.9 FT) 3.4 rebounds, 1.2 assists, and 0.2 steals in 28 minutes per night over the last five games. Had he not put up a two-point effort in Wednesday's loss versus the Rockets, his recent scoring numbers would be even more impressive. Nevertheless, coach Sam Mitchell has made Muhammad a key part of the rotation, and he is not disappointing.

    Timberwolves' Shabazz Muhammad: Scores 21 points Tuesday

    Muhammad managed 20 points (8-15 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), four rebounds, and three assists in 34 minutes during the Timberwolves' 101-96 loss against the Thunder on Tuesday. Muhammad turned the ball over three times, but he did post the best box score plus-minus while scoring 20 points on only 15 shot attempts. Veteran starting small forward Tayshaun Prince saw just 14 minutes, and Muhammad is the one receiving more time most nights. Over the past five games, he is averaging 17.0 points (54.5 FG, 38.5 3Pt, 71.4 FT), 2.8 rebounds, 1.2 assists, and 0.2 steals in 28 minutes per appearance.

    Timberwolves' Shabazz Muhammad: Scores 16 off the bench Sunday

    Muhammad scored 16 points (5-10 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 5-8 FT) while adding five rebounds in 28 minutes off the bench during Sunday's loss to the Mavericks. He's been seeing more court time lately, in large part because Kevin Garnett appears to be playing through some sort of undisclosed injury, and Muhammad has responded by averaging 15.3 points, 2.8 boards and 1.0 threes in 25.5 minutes over his last six games. His weak production in secondary categories limits his fantasy value, but as long as Muhammad continues to see solid minutes he can be useful in deep formats.

    Timberwolves' Shabazz Muhammad: Posts season-high 22 points Friday

    Muhammad recorded 22 points (6-13 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 8-10 FT), two rebounds, and two assists in 26 minutes during the Timberwolves' 125-99 loss to the Cavaliers on Friday. Muhammad scored his previous season-high of 20 points on 8-of-11 from the field against the 76ers on Monday. He is averaging 15.2 points (56.3 FG, 55.6 3Pt, 68.0 FT), 2.4 rebounds, one assist, and 0.6 steals in 25 minutes per appearance. It's rather unlikely he will continue connecting on shots at this rate, but Muhammad appears to be earning himself sufficient time off the bench for Timberwolves' coach Sam Mitchell.

    Timberwolves' Shabazz Muhammad: Continues to produce off bench Monday vs. 76ers

    Muhammad scored a season-high 20 points (8-11 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 3-4 FT) with three rebounds over 34 minutes in Monday's 109-99 loss to the 76ers. That makes three straight games in double figures for Muhammad, who keeps gaining more and more confidence in his shot game after game. The 34 minutes was also a season high, though Muhammad has seen plenty of playing time throughout the season, but has all of a sudden started to turn it into something for fantasy owners. There's a chance he's available in smaller leagues and he'd be an absolute steal in 12- or 14-team leagues off the waiver wire.

    Timberwolves' Shabazz Muhammad: Scores 12 points

    Muhammad scored 12 points with four rebounds in 26 minutes in Saturday's loss to Milwaukee. Muhammad now has back-to-back games of scoring 12 points or more and consecutive games playing over 20 minutes. Muhammad's playing time has been inconsistent, but perhaps he's finally becoming more of a factor off the bench with Kevin Martin sitting out most games due to a coach's decision.

    Timberwolves' Shabazz Muhammad: Scores 15 points Thursday

    Muhammad tallied 15 points (5-7 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 4-6 FT), three rebounds, an assist, and a steal across 23 minutes in Thursday's loss to the Pistons. Muhammad scored exactly 15 points eight days earlier, but before replicating that output Thursday, he had scored just two, eight, and five points in the preceding three games. With his playing time frequently ranging between 15 and 20 minutes, Muhammad will likely fail to produce with enough consistently to be used with confidence in both daily and weekly formats.

    Timberwolves' Shabazz Muhammad: Fails to score

    Muhammad did not score and took just four shots from the field in ten minutes in Sunday's win over Brooklyn. Muhammad can't seem to get on a roll this season as he was held scoreless one game after playing a season-high 27 minutes and scoring 16 points on Friday. Muhammad should find an increased role off the bench eventually with Tayshaun Prince and Kevin Garnett likely needed more rest as older players, but Muhammad's playing time continues to be inconsistent.

    Timberwolves' Shabazz Muhammad: Season-high 27 minutes

    Muhammad scored 16 points with seven rebounds in 27 minutes in Friday's win over Sacramento. Muhammad played a season high in minutes. Head coach Sam Mitchell said earlier in the season he wanted to get Muhammad more minutes off the bench but more playing time failed to materialize. With Mitchell making a change in the starting lineup with Tayshaun Prince back as the starting small forward, perhaps Mitchell will re-work his rotation off the bench to Muhammad's benefit as well.
