Timberwolves' Andrew Wiggins: Scores 27 in 20th straight 20+ game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wiggins posted 27 points (11-21 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 4-5 FT), seven rebounds, three assists, one block and a steal across 38 minutes in Fridays 97-84 victory over the Mavericks.

Wiggins tied the Timberwolves season record for most consecutive 20+ point games, and he might be on the way to setting more. Wiggins is arguably one of the most consistent players in the league, and the former first-round pick should have his contract looked at, especially if the Wolves get to the playoffs.There is no reason to think Wiggins can't mirror his production thus far, so he is a must-start in every format.

Timberwolves' Ricky Rubio: Dishes out 14 in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rubio produced 13 points (6-13, FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 14 assists, five rebounds and three steals across 35 minutes in Friday's 97-84 win over the Heat.

Trade? What trade? Rubio hardly seemed to mind his name being bandied about over the past week. leading the way in assists and steals on Friday. He appears to have a stranglehold on the shooting guard role and it seems odd that a trade was even being discussed, unless they were thinking of permanently moving Kris Dunn to the 2. Either way, it matters very little as Rubio is very much a Timberwolf, and is a key cog in the wheel they are spinning to make a playoff push.

Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Double-double as Wolves make playoff push
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Towns scored 26 points (12-18 FG, 2-3 FT), 18 rebounds, three assists and a steal across 39 minutes in Friday's 97-84 win over the Mavericks.

Towns is one of the league's most underrated big men, and the Wolves will need nights like these from the second-year pro as they crawl up the standings. He was simply too big for the Mavericks underneath and snagged down rebounds almost at will, and sometimes uncontested. That should come as no surprise as he ranks 5th in the NBA in total rebounds. The Wolves will visit the Rockets on Sunday, where Towns will mostly pair with Clint Capela.

Timberwolves' Nemanja Bjelica: Scores seven points in Wednesday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bjelica scored seven points with five rebounds in 29 minutes in Wednesday's loss to Cleveland.

Bjelica is starting to get a little more time off the bench after Zach LaVine's season-ending knee injury. Bjelica is averaging 21 minutes and 9.3 points over his last three games. He's 5-of-8 from three-point range over that span. If he can keep making three-point shots, he should get more consistent minutes off the bench.

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.
