Timberwolves' Nemanja Bjelica: Scores seven points in Wednesday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bjelica scored seven points with five rebounds in 29 minutes in Wednesday's loss to Cleveland.

Bjelica is starting to get a little more time off the bench after Zach LaVine's season-ending knee injury. Bjelica is averaging 21 minutes and 9.3 points over his last three games. He's 5-of-8 from three-point range over that span. If he can keep making three-point shots, he should get more consistent minutes off the bench.

Timberwolves' Nemanja Bjelica: Scores 16 points in 19 minutes
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Bjelica posted 16 points (6-12 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT), six rebounds, three assists, two steals, and one block across 19 minutes during Sunday's 117-89 win over the Bulls.

Bjelica filled up the stat sheet, making a contribution in every category for just the second time all season. Given that Zach LaVine (knee) is out for the remainder of 2016-17, Bjelica has a decent chance to surpass the 17.9 minutes he averaged last year, especially if he continues to make the most of his opportunities.

Timberwolves' Nemanja Bjelica: Fewer minutes despite Zach LaVine's injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bjelica scored just two points with three rebounds in 14 minutes in Monday's loss to Miami.

Bjelica would appear to have an opening for playing time with Zach LaVine's season-ending knee injury, but he's actually played less than average the past two games (14 minutes per game each game). Brandon Rush hasn't done much with significant minutes in the starting lineup in place of LaVine, so Bjelica may still get a greater opportunity.

Timberwolves' Nemanja Bjelica: Struggling from three-point range
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bjelica scored three points with one assist and was just 1-of-4 from three-point range in 14 minutes in Saturday's win over Brooklyn. He's just 7-for-36 from three-point range in January. "He's a good shooter. As long as he's open, we want him to shoot. That's what keeps a defense honest. We have the belief he's going to make them," head coach Tom Thibodeau told the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

He's shooting just 29.3 percent from three-point range, which is down from 38.4 percent last season. He'll need to improve from long distance in order to get more minutes off the bench.

Timberwolves' Nemanja Bjelica: Scores eight points in Wednesday's win
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Bjelica scored eight points with seven rebounds and a steal in 21 minutes in Wednesday's win over Houston.

Brandon Rush, and not Bjelica, was the surprise benefactor of playing time with Zach LaVine out. Bjelica could get more minutes if LaVine remains out as the T-Wolves may distribute minutes in his absence more based on matchups.
