      Timberwolves' Zach LaVine: Tallies 19 points in another start Friday

      LaVine tallied 19 points (7-14 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT), eight rebounds and four assists over 29 minutes in Friday's 101-91 victory over the Kings. LaVine looks like Minnesota's most improved player in terms of consistency, as the second-year pro has looked outstanding so far this season regardless of role and playing time allotment. He received a start in place of the ailing Ricky Rubio (ankle) Friday and once again contributed across the stat sheet, including contributing a season-high eight boards. Even when Rubio has been active, LaVine has typically received quality minutes in the 20s, particularly in recent games, making him a worthwile waiver-wire pickup in all formats.

      Timberwolves' Zach LaVine: Gets the start Friday in Sacramento

      LaVine will get the start Friday in Sacramento. With Ricky Rubio out while he nurses a sore ankle, Lavine will draw the start. He has played well in his opportunities on the court so far this season. Currently, Lavine is averaging 14.1 points, 3.5 rebounds, 3.6 assists, and 1.3 triples in 24 minutes per game. If Rubio cannot go again Sunday, expect Lavine to get another start.

      Timberwolves' Zach LaVine: Scores 18 points in extended minutes

      LaVine posted 18 points (7-13 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six assists, and five rebounds in 27 minutes Wednesday against the Hawks. LaVine saw extended minutes Wednesday with Ricky Rubio re-aggravating his ankle injury, and he helped lead the Timberwolves to victory. He's still penned in as a reserve when Rubio is active, but he's playing enough minutes to contribute enough points, threes, and occasionally assists. Rubio is apparently hoping to play in Friday's game, but given Rubio's historical injury record, LaVine appears to be a safe low-end option in many formats.

      Timberwolves' Zach LaVine: Returns to bench, scores 17 points

      LaVine returned to the bench Tuesday against the Heat and posted 17 points (5-12 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 5-6 FT), four rebounds, three assists, and one steal in 28 minutes of action. LaVine seemed to have lock himself as a major offensive cog of the Timberwolves' rotation, even from the bench. With Ricky Rubio (hamstring) back into action, LaVine may not hit 30-plus minutes every night, but he's still producing enough to be owned in standard leagues.

      Timberwolves' Zach LaVine: Scores 25 points in 17 minutes on Sunday

      LaVine recorded 25 points (8-15 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 5-6 FT), three rebounds, and three assists in 17 minutes during the Wolves' 114-106 loss versus the Grizzlies on Sunday. LaVine logged only 17 minutes as a result of committing five fouls, and watched veteran Andre Miller pump out eight points and eight assists in 34 minutes. Still, LaVine scored at will while he was in the game, and only turned the ball over once. So long as Ricky Rubio (hamstring) sits, LaVine makes for a fairly useful fantasy player, especially in leagues that value counting stats. Through 10 contests, LaVine has averages of 13.6 points, 3.2 rebounds, 4.0 assists, 0.8 steals, and 2.6 turnovers in 23 minutes per game.

      Timberwolves' Zach LaVine: Scores 26 points on Friday

      LaVine recorded 26 points (11-22 FG, 4-7 3Pt), six rebounds, four assists, and one steal in 40 minutes during the Wolves' 107-103 loss versus the Pacers on Friday. LaVine performed well, committing only two turnovers on the second night of a back-to-back. The Wolves are being cautious with Ricky Rubio (hamstring), and LaVine receives the biggest boost on the team in fantasy value so long as Rubio continues to sit. The Wolves are back in action on Sunday versus the Grizzlies.

      Timberwolves' Zach LaVine: Starting Friday

      LaVine will start again Friday in place of Ricky Rubio, the Star Tribune's Jerry Zgoda reports. Rubio will miss another contest, meaning LaVine will get the first crack at running the show, with Andre Miller playing some point guard off the bench. Look for LaVine to see between 25 and 30 minutes Friday.

      Timberwolves' Zach LaVine: Scores 20 points in start

      LaVine posted 20 points (9-19 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five rebounds, eight assists, and two steals in 37 minutes of action Tuesday against the Hornets. LaVine got the start for the resting Ricky Rubio (knee) and made the most of his extended minutes. He's likely to return to his bench role when Rubio gets back on the court, so owners shouldn't expect this kind of performance from him consistently.

      Timberwolves' Zach LaVine: Will start Tuesday

      LaVine is in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Hornets, Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports. With Ricky Rubio sitting out due to a sore knee, LaVine will move into the starting lineup at point guard. Kevin Garnett (rest) and Andrew Wiggins (knee) are also sitting out, which should give LaVine plenty of opportunities to boost his overall production. Once Rubio is healthy, LaVine will return to his reserve role off the bench.

      Timberwolves' Zach LaVine: Scores 13 points Monday

      LaVine netted 13 points (5-7 FG, 1-1 3PM, 2-2 FT) and dished out six assists in Monday's win in Atlanta. The 20-year-old point guard has spent the season backing up Ricky Rubio at point guard so far, and is averaging 18.2 minutes per game. Rubio is off to a hot start for the 4-2 Timberwolves, and at the same time LaVine has struggled early in the point guard role. Through the six contests, he's managed 8.7 points and 4.0 assists per game.
