Timberwolves' Brandon Rush: Game-time decision Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rush (toe) will have his status for Saturday's matchup with the Grizzlies determined following the team's pregame, Timberwolves' radio announcer Alan Horton reports.

Rush has missed the previous six games with a sprained toe. If he can play, it is unclear if the team will opt to ease him back into action. Shabazz Muhammad is also questionble, so Rush could be needed for some extra minutes if he cannot go.

Timberwolves' Andrew Wiggins: Scores 19 in Sunday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wiggins scored 19 points (8-15 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding eight rebounds, four assists and a steal in 38 minutes during Sunday's 98-87 loss to the Mavericks.

He's had an up-and-down start to 2017, popping for 41 points back on January 6 but only scoring 20 or more in three of eight games on the month to date. Wiggins hasn't yet figured out how to impose his will on a consistent basis, but the 21-year-old's production has still seen a slight bump from last season, and his best is almost certainly yet to come.

Timberwolves' Gorgui Dieng: Scores season-high 21 in Sunday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dieng scored 21 points (10-12 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-3 FT) while adding eight rebounds and a steal in 31 minutes during Sunday's 98-87 loss to the Mavericks.

The 21 points were a season high for Dieng, and it was only the third time all year he'd broken the 20-point mark. With Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins carrying the offensive load for the 'Wolves, Dieng's scoring has stagnated from the last two years despite more minutes and more shot attempts, but he's still hit for double digits in seven of eight January games.

Timberwolves' Brandon Rush: Expected to move back to bench Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rush is expected to return to a bench role for Sunday's game against the Mavericks.

The Timberwolves announced about an hour before the 2:00 p.m. ET tip off that Zach LaVine (hip) would be available, and though an official lineup hasn't been announced, it's likely LaVine will take his starting role after missing only two games with the injury. LaVine isn't expected to face any playing-time restrictions either, so assuming he takes on his usual 35-plus-minute workload, Rush will see his role diminish considerably. Rush has averaged 11.5 points, 3.5 rebounds, 3.5 three-pointers, 2.5 blocks, 2.5 steals and 2.0 assists in 38.0 minutes per game over the last two contests while starting in place of LaVine, but had largely been out of the rotation before that, appearing in only two of the Timberwolves' prior 14 games.

Timberwolves' Zach LaVine: Will play Sunday vs. Mavericks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LaVine (hip) will be active and available to play Sunday against the Mavericks.

The Timberwolves put LaVine through a pregame workout to see if his bruised left hip was still inhibiting him, but it's been determined that the third-year player will be able to return from a two-game absence. LaVine is fully expected to take back his spot in the starting five at shooting guard, which would result in Brandon Rush moving into a more limited role off the bench after averaging 38.0 minutes per game in the prior two contests. Assuming LaVine makes it through Sunday's contest without any issue, he should make for an easy activation for fantasy owners heading into the Timberwolves' three-game slate during the upcoming week.
