Timberwolves' Gorgui Dieng: Scores season-high 21 in Sunday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dieng scored 21 points (10-12 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-3 FT) while adding eight rebounds and a steal in 31 minutes during Sunday's 98-87 loss to the Mavericks.

The 21 points were a season high for Dieng, and it was only the third time all year he'd broken the 20-point mark. With Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins carrying the offensive load for the 'Wolves, Dieng's scoring has stagnated from the last two years despite more minutes and more shot attempts, but he's still hit for double digits in seven of eight January games.

Timberwolves' Gorgui Dieng: Tallies 12 points in 25 minutes Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dieng put up 12 points (5-8 FG, 2-4 FT) and five rebounds across 25 minutes in a 101-92 win over the Mavericks on Monday.

After closing out 2016 with a meager six-point effort in a Dec. 30 win over the Bucks, Dieng has been in double figures in the scoring column in each of the first five games in January. Given his standing as no better than a third or fourth option on offense whenever he's on the floor, Dieng's ceiling as a scorer isn't especially high, but he offers strong supplementary production in the defensive categories. For the third straight season, he's averaging more than one steal and one block.

Timberwolves' Gorgui Dieng: Scores 20 points Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dieng had 20 points (9-11 FG, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, one assist, one steal, and one block in 39 minutes during the Timberwolves' 105-103 loss to the Nuggets on Wednesday.

Dieng matched his season high in scoring, and he was extremely efficient from the field in the process. Though he floats a little bit under the radar compared to most of his teammates, Dieng has managed well-rounded averages of 10.5 points (on 53 percent shooting), 7.9 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.3 blocks, and 1.0 steal in 32.8 minutes per, and he has yet to miss a game during 2016-17.

Timberwolves' Gorgui Dieng: Bounces back with 16 points, nine rebounds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dieng finished with 16 points (7-9 FG, 2-5 FT), nine rebounds, one assist and one steal across 33 minutes in Tuesday's 105-91 loss to the Spurs.

Dieng had been held to under eight points in each of the last three games, so fantasy owners had to be pleased with the bounce-back effort. The 26-year-old has battled some inconsistency this season, but he's largely met expectations for fantasy owners with averages of 10.2 points, 8.1 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 1.2 blocks and 1.0 steal in 31.2 minutes per contest.
