    Timberwolves' Zach LaVine: Claims MVP honors in Rising Stars Challenge

    LaVine took home MVP honors in Friday's Rising Stars Challenge in Toronto, scoring 30 points to go with seven rebounds and four assists while leading the United States team to a 157-154 victory over the World squad. As has been tradition since the inception of the event, the Rising Stars Challenge didn't feature much defense, as both squads chased highlights and hoisted three-pointers with reckless abandon. That kind of contest suited LaVine, one of the league's most athletic players, just fine, as he hit 13 of his 20 shot attempts while giving the Toronto fans a preview of what's to come Saturday night. The second-year guard will be back on the court to defend the Slam Dunk Contest title he won at last season's All-Star Game in New York.

    Timberwolves' Zach LaVine: Struggles from field in Wednesday's start

    LaVine totaled 13 points (4-13 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 4-6 FT), five assists, four rebounds, and one block in 38 minutes during the Timberwolves' 117-112 win over the Raptors on Wednesday. LaVine started in place of Tayshaun Prince (personal), and though it wasn't LaVine's best shooting night, he took good care of the ball--committing only one turnover. He has scored 12 points or more in nine straight games, and the sophomore's confidence has to be soaring sky-high. After he likely takes home another Slam-Dunk championship crown at All-Star weekend, LaVine and the Timberwolves are back in action next Friday versus the Grizzlies.

    Timberwolves' Zach LaVine: Will start in Wednesday's game

    LaVine will start in Wednesday's game against the Raptors, Andy Greder of Pioneer Press reports. LaVine is getting into the starting lineup due to Tayshaun Prince (personal) missing the game. LaVine has been averaging 31.3 minutes per game this month, and could be in for even more than that now that he's in the starting lineup.

    Timberwolves' Zach LaVine: Contributes 13 points in Saturday's Win

    LaVine contributed 13 points (5-16 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT) alongside three assists and two steals over 36 minutes in Saturday's win. After shooting an impressive 59.5 percent over his last six games, LaVine struggled to find his stroke against the Bulls, shooting just 31.2 percent from the field. With Kevin Martin set to return in the next couple of games, LaVine will likely see his role the in the offense shrink. As a result, it's difficult to recommend LaVine as a long-term fantasy option.

    Timberwolves' Zach LaVine: Scores 17 points in Wednesday's win

    LaVine scored 17 points (7-14 FG, 2-4 3PT, 1-3 FT) and contributed four rebounds and three assists in 34 minutes during Wednesday's win against the Clippers. LaVine has found a groove of late, averaging an impressive 20.0 points on 58.9 percent shooting during Kevin Martin's absence (wrist). Despite this uptick in production, it's hard to imagine he will continue his torrid streak once Martin returns. Still, if Martin can't suit up Saturday, LaVine is certainly worth a look in DFS.

    Timberwolves' Zach LaVine: Scores 19 off the bench Friday

    LaVine scored 19 points (9-12 FG, 1-2 FT) while adding three assists and a rebound in 31 minutes off the bench during Friday's loss to the Jazz. He's been taking full advantage of the extra court time provided by Kevin Martin's wrist injury, and LaVine is now averaging an eye-popping 25 points on 70.4 percent shooting from the floor in the three games since Martin went down. That pace is of course unsustainable, but if Martin isn't able to suit up Sunday in Portland, LaVine has to be considered as a DFS play given the Trail Blazers' mediocre defense this season.

    Timberwolves' Zach LaVine: Scores season-high 35 points Wednesday

    LaVine totaled 35 points (14-17 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 2-5 FT), two rebounds, one assist, and one steal in 29 minutes during the Timberwolves' 126-123 loss to the Thunder on Wednesday. LaVine set a franchise record for most points off the bench in a game, and he also owns the NBA's season-high mark for points off the bench in a contest during 2015-16. In the last two games, LaVine has seen a total of 59 minutes--his highest over a two-game stretch since the end of November.

    Timberwolves' Zach LaVine: Breaks out for 21 points off bench in Monday's loss

    LaVine broke out for 21 points (8-15 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 3-3 FT) with six assists and four rebounds over 30 minutes in Monday's 114-107 loss to the Cavaliers. LaVine had gone three games without reaching double-digit scoring, and it had been another three games prior to that when he last scored 20 or more points. He didn't shoot a solid percentage from beyond the arc, but the seven attempts matched his season high, so perhaps LaVine is being encouraged to shoot the ball a bit more.

    Timberwolves' Zach LaVine: Struggles again with shot

    LaVine scored just two points and was 1-of-6 from the field in 15 minutes in Wednesday's loss to Houston. It looked like LaVine had broken out of his shooting slump Tuesday (7-12 from the field, 3-4 from three-point range), but he struggled again Wednesday. He's shooting just 29.1 percent from the field since Dec. 26. His struggles will continue to limit his playing time off the bench.

    Timberwolves' Zach LaVine: Breaks out of slump Tuesday

    LaVine tallied 21 points (7-12 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 4-6 FT), nine rebounds, and four assists in 27 minutes during the Timberwolves' 101-96 loss to the Thunder on Tuesday. LaVine had made only nine of his previous 44 field goal attempts over the past seven games while scoring 21 total points and committing 11 turnovers. It was easily his worst stretch of the season, but Tuesday's bounce-back performance was certainly encouraging.
