Timberwolves' Brandon Rush: Scores nine points in Friday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rush scored nine points with three rebounds in 25 minutes in Friday's loss to New Orleans. He was 2-of-5 from three-point range.

Rush bounced back after failing to score in Wednesday's game, but he's hardly making an impact on offense as the starting shooting guard. He's averaging just 4.8 points per game and shooting just 31.6 percent in four games since starter Zach LaVine suffered a season-ending knee injury. It's hard to think Rush will stay in the starting lineup too much longer, but head coach Tom Thibodeau's plans are not clear.

Timberwolves' Brandon Rush: Fails to score in Wednesday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rush started at shooting guard but did not score and was 0-for-3 from the field in 20 minutes in Wednesday's win over Toronto. He had one rebound and no assists.

Rush is starting in place of injured Zach LaVine, but he's not contributing much on offense as he has just ten total points over three games. He could see his playing time decrease as a result.

Timberwolves' Brandon Rush: Scores five points in another start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rush scored five points with three rebounds and two assists in 33 minutes in Monday's loss to Miami. He was just 2-of-5 from the field.

Rush is starting at shooting guard in place of injured Zach LaVine, but he's not providing much offense. He's scored five points in each of his last two games (both starts) and has taken just nine total shots from the field. He could be a source of three-point shots if he stays in the starting lineup, but he's taken just five shots (2-of-5) from three-point range the past two games.

Timberwolves' Brandon Rush: Posts five points in Saturday start
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Rush, getting first crack at the starting shooting guard role in the wake of Zach LaVine's season-ending knee injury, mustered just five points (1-5 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and three rebounds over 24 minutes in Saturday's 107-99 loss to the Grizzlies.

The nine-year veteran ceded most of the usage in the backcourt to Ricky Rubio, and was inefficient with the attempts at the basket that he did make. While he's shown the ability to contribute with his long-range proficiency in the past, it remains to be seen if he's in the starting five for the long haul. Rush did log 36 and 40 minutes, respectively, in two January starts, posting 12 and 11 points in those games.

Timberwolves' Brandon Rush: Will start Saturday vs. Grizzlies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rush will start at shooting guard for Saturday's matchup against the Grizzlies, Kent Youngblood of the Star Tribune reports.

With Zach LaVine (ACL) out for the season, Rush seems to be the likely candidate to enter the starting five. Rush could be someone to pick up in many fantasy formats if he's available, as he's averaged 38 minutes per game in the past two contests that LaVine missed. He's knocking down 44.8 percent of his three-point attempts on the season, and should help space the floor for the Timberwolves.
