Timberwolves' Shabazz Muhammad: Evidences defensive deficiencies in 2015
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shabazz Muhammad graded out as 461st out of 462 eligible players in ESPN's Defensive RPM rankings for the 2015 season.

Seeing his playing time slightly fall under interim HC Sam Mitchell, Muhammad's numbers expectedly dropped across the board in 2015. However, Muhammad's 2015 is ultimately characterized by tantalizing offensive upside to match a disappointing defensive incompetence. Muhammad scored over 20 points on nine occasions this year, but it's unfortunately hard to showcase his offensive abilities when playing for a team that lacks defensive aptitude in general where his teammates are unable to hide his weaknesses. Looking ahead, Muhhammad's role is in question under newly-acquired coach Tom Thibodeau for 2016. If Thibodeau can improve Minnesota's defense, he may be able to afford Muhammad a longer leash than normal. Then again, Thibodeau is a defensive-minded coach, and may not find Muhammad's offensive spark worth the defensive liability he presents.

Timberwolves' Shabazz Muhammad: Pours in 28 points during Wednesday's season finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shabazz Muhammad poured in 28 points (12-16 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT) to go with three assists and one steal over 23 minutes in Wednesday's win against the Pelicans.

The Minnesota Timberwolves put up a ton of points and Muhammad was sure to get his share. He's now scored 20 or more points in three of his last five games after a poor end of March. Despite his improvements, this team is loaded with raw talent and he's got some work ahead of him if he wants to be a prominent contributor in the upcoming season.

Timberwolves' Shabazz Muhammad: Scores 23 points in 22 minutes Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shabazz Muhammad managed 23 points (9-13 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 4-7 FT), two assists, one rebound, and one steal in 22 minutes during the Minnesota Timberwolves ' 129-105 loss to the Rockets on Monday.

Following a one-point effort versus the Mavericks on Apr. 3, Muhammad has scored in double figures during four straight games. He has also hit double digits in seven of the last eight contests, and Muhammad continues to fill it up offensively even when his minutes aren't all that plentiful. Wednesday's season finale versus the injury-ravaged Pelicans gives Muhammad a good chance to end the campaign on a high note.

Timberwolves' Shabazz Muhammad: Scores 35 points to lead upset win
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Muhammad exploded for a career-high 35 points (9-12 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 15-17 FT) to go with six rebounds in 39 minutes in Tuesday's 124-117 overtime against the Warriors.

After seeing minutes in the teens in nine of the Timberwolves' previous 10 games while averaging just 6.8 points, Muhammad was an unlikely hero in the team's surprising road upset. He helped guide a second-half comeback by shooting efficiently from the field and getting to the line a season-high 17 times, knocking down 15 of those shots. He continued his solid play into overtime, drawing a crucial sixth foul on the Warriors' Draymond Green and converting the subsequent free throws to give the Wolves a five-point lead that would ultimately hold up. The third-year forward has shown plenty of potential as a bench scorer this season, but consistency has stood in the way of him becoming an asset outside of deeper leagues.

Timberwolves' Shabazz Muhammad: Scores 11 points, adds eight boards, four dimes Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shabazz Muhammad finished with 11 points (5-12 FG, 1-4 FT), eight rebounds, and four assists across 26 minutes during the Minnesota Timberwolves ' 99-79 loss to the Clippers on Wednesday.

Muhammad played a team-high 26 minutes in Wednesday's blowout while scoring in double figures for the second straight contest. Andrew Wiggins suffered a chin laceration, but it's unlikely that will keep him out for Friday's matchup with the Jazz. As a result, Muhammad will likely continue coming off the bench to spell Wiggins at small forward.
