Timberwolves' Shabazz Muhammad: Leads bench with 11 points in 13 minutes Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muhammad tallied 11 points (4-8 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and three rebounds over 13 minutes in Saturday's 142-130 loss to the Rockets.

Muhammad did his damage quickly in the high-scoring affair, as the starting five logged heavy minutes while trying to keep pace with the high-octane Rockets. The former UCLA Bruin has now posted double-digit scoring efforts in eight of 11 February games, despite the fact that he's played under 20 minutes in five straight contests. Muhammad serves as a viable option in deeper leagues, although he doesn't provide much in any category beyond the scoring column.

Timberwolves' Shabazz Muhammad: Lights up for 15 against Nuggets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muhammad tallied 15 points (5-7 FG, 0-1 3pt, 5-5 FT), three rebounds and two assists over 17 minutes in Wednesday's 112-99 win over the Nuggets.

While it was widely expected that Brandon Rush would be the prime contender to fill the void left by Zach LaVine (knee), it hasn't quite worked out that way. You've seen an explosion in production from Andrew Wiggins and an expanded role for Muhammad, who's performed well since LaVine hit the IR on Feb. 4. Since LaVine's injury, Muhammad has averaged 11.5 points and 2.3 rebounds per game and he's well-positioned to carry a larger role for the remainder of the season. With Karl-Anthony Towns sliding to the 4 spot, Gorgui Deng at center, and Wiggins with Ricky Rubio in the front court, that leaves Rush, Lance Stephenson (ankle) and Muhammad vying for minutes at small forward. Muhammad has the most upside of this trio, and though this situation should be monitored, look for Rush and Stephenson to lose more time as the 4th-year pro matures into a starting role.

Timberwolves' Shabazz Muhammad: Scores 22 points in Wednesday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muhammad scored 22 points with two rebounds and two assists in 26 minutes in Wednesday's win over Toronto.

With Brandon Rush failing to provide much offense (no points Wednesday) as the starting shooting guard, Muhammad could increase his role off the bench.

Timberwolves' Shabazz Muhammad: Provides 11 points off bench
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Muhammad provided 11 points (5-11 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 0-1 FT) and four rebounds over 26 minutes in Saturday's 107-99 loss to the Grizzlies.

Muhammad now has five straight double-digit scoring efforts and seven in his last eight games. With Zach LaVine now out for the balance of the campaign with a torn ACL, the third-year pro could be called upon to step up more often off the bench or potentially even enter the starting lineup in order to help make up for some of the shortfall stemming from the former's absence.

Timberwolves' Shabazz Muhammad: Leads bench scoring Friday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Muhammad scored 15 points (6-11 FG, 3-4 3Pt) while adding one steal over 23 minutes in Friday's 116-108 loss to the Pistons.

The young core of the Timberwolves did nearly all the damage Friday, as Andrew Wiggins, Karl-Anthony Towns, Ricky Rubio and Zach LaVine were the top four scorers, while Muhammad came off the bench and meshed the most with them, adding his own double-digit point total. He accounted for more than half of the team's threes in the game, which may earn him more run on a team that needs outside shooting, especially now that LaVine (knee) may miss time.
