Andrew Wiggins posted 32 points (10-21 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 11-12 FT), six rebounds, three assists, two blocks, and one steal in 38 minutes Monday against the Sixers.
Wiggins has been on a tear recently, averaging 25.2 points, 4.0 rebounds, 1.0 steal, 1.2 blocks, and 8.4 free-throws made over the last five games. He showed this kind of stellar production near the end of last season, so it's not surprising to see him rise back to this state. He's obviously a big part of the Minnesota Timberwolves ' future, and he has the opportunity to contribute like this on a regular basis.
Through 11 games, the sophomore swingman is averaging 21.5 points, 3.3 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 0.6 steals, 0.6 blocks, and 2.2 turnovers in 34 minutes per game. After a rocky start to the campaign, Wiggins has been scoring the ball at will as of late. However, his rebounding, assist, and steal averages are all lower than they were as a rookie. On the positive side, he has looked more confident launching from downtown, something that will be exceedingly important if Wolves coach Sam Mitchell continues to surround Wiggins in the starting lineup with weak outside shooters like Ricky Rubio and Tayshaun Prince.
Andrew Wiggins went for 26 points (10-19 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 5-6 FT), two rebounds, and two assists in 42 minutes during the Wolves' 107-103 loss versus the Pacers.
Wiggins did commit three turnovers, but his scoring efficiency was solid on Friday. In his last four contests, he's averaging 27.3 points (50.6 FG, 53.8 3Pt, 61.5 FT), 3.0 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 0.3 steals, and 0.5 blocks in 39 minutes per game. Though his rebounding has been sub-par so far this season, Wiggins has really picked up his scoring of late after averaging only 12.3 points per game through his first four contests of the year. Expect the sophomore's shooting percentages to dip a bit going forward, but if he can start contributing more boards and steals, he could make the leap and become an elite fantasy contributor.
Andrew Wiggins (knee) will play on Thursday against the Warriors, Jerry Zgoda of the Star Tribune reports.
Wiggins had been listed as probable, which makes it unsurprising that he will play and start against Golden State. It is unlikely that he'll be at all limited, but if he is look for Kevin Martin and Shabazz Muhammad to get a few extra minutes.
Andrew Wiggins (knee) has been upgraded to probable for Thursday's matchup with Golden State, Rusty Simmons of the SF Chronicle reports.
As expected, Wiggins is on track to return to the court after sitting out Tuesday's loss to the Hornets. He's coming off of his two best performances of the season, a 31-point effort against the Bulls on Saturday, and 33-point night in Atlanta on Monday.
