Wiggins will not take part in Canada's Olympic Qualifying games in July, Jerry Zgoda of the Star Tribune reports.
Wiggins would've been a major player for the Canadian national team if he had chosen to partake in the qualifying games. Instead, he'll be focusing on practicing with the Timberwolves staff, preparing for the 2016-2017 season. It's unclear at this time if Wiggins would play for Canada if the team manages to qualify for the Olympics in August.
Andrew Wiggins poured in 23 points (9-22 FG, 5-6 FT) and added three rebounds and an assist over 32 minutes in Saturday's 106-105 victory over the Trail Blazers.
Wiggins continued his recent stretch of strong offensive play, and sank two key free throws late in the fourth quarter to help the Minnesota Timberwolves keep pace with the Trail Blazers. Outside of a seven-point outlier versus the Clippers on Mar. 30, Wiggins has tallied double-digit scoring in every game since Jan. 31. He's enjoyed an excellent second half of the season, and is averaging 24.8 points, 3.6 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 2.0 steals over the last five games.
It's the third time in five games that Wiggins has cleared the 30-point benchmark, and perhaps more encouragingly, he's beginning to show signs of more well-rounded production. While Tuesday's theft total is probably an outlier, he's still averaging 3.9 boards, 2.6 assists, and 1.6 steals since March 5, all of which are higher than his season averages in those categories.
Andrew Wiggins scored 30 points (12-21 FG, 5-5 FT, 1-3 3Pt) to go along with four rebounds, two assists and two steals across 41 minutes during Sunday's loss to the Mavericks.
Wiggins enjoyed his second straight game as an efficient shooter, draining 11 field goals in each contest. He has produced little other than scoring of late and endured a seven-point clunker Wednesday, but Wiggins' 86 combined points in the other three games this week indicate that he could be winding the season down on a high note for a Minnesota team that is building for the future.
Andrew Wiggins scored 24 points (11-21 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 0-2 FT) while adding two rebounds and a steal in 37 minutes during Friday's loss to the Jazz.
His neck didn't seem to be an issue, and Wiggins looks set to finish the campaign on a high note. His scoring has been extremely consistent, and he's averaged at least 19 points a game in every calendar month this season, but his secondary contributions remain a work in progress.
