  • Gibson finished with 24 points (8-11 FG, 8-10 FT), nine rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block in 40 minutes during Wednesday's 124-118 victory over the Magic. After a dud in his last game, Gibson bounced back nicely, scoring a season-high 24 points on only 11 shot attempts. Gibson has been a nice fit for his new team, and has sneaky value in most fantasy formats. He will not blow you out of the water with his numbers, but can contribute across the board while maintaining good efficiency. He should really be owned in all leagues, until further notice.

  • Gibson scored just one point and was 0-for-4 from the field in 29 minutes in Monday's loss at Charlotte. He had six rebounds and one block. Gibson and Minnesota's front court struggled against Dwight Howard and Frank Kaminsky. Gibson has been shooting a near career high of 51.2 percent from the field and a career high 84.4 from the free throw line, so we wouldn't be too worried about an off night. He's made an impact as a starter with his rebounding and defense.

  • Gibson recorded 15 points (5-8 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 4-5 FT), 10 rebounds one steal and one block in 39 minutes during Monday's 109-98 victory over the Jazz Gibson has been surprisingly consistent for the Timberwolves this season. He now has four double-doubles in his last six games, while also chipping in some blocks and steals. He provides good efficiency from both the floor and the charity stripe, and you could do a lot worse if you are in need of some big-man stats. If he is floating around on your waivers, go ahead and give him a look.

  • Gibson supplied 16 points (6-11 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 4-6 FT), 11 rebounds and two steals across 37 minutes in Saturday's 118-110 loss to the Suns. Along with Karl-Anthony Towns, Gibson provided one of two double-doubles on the Timberwolves' starting five, accomplishing the feat for the third time over five November contests in the process. The veteran forward has proven to be a prudent offseason addition thus far, shooting a career-high 54.2 percent, posting his best rebound total (7.1) since his rookie campaign, equaling a career-best assist figure (1.5) and setting a new high-water mark in steals (1.1).

  • Gibson posted 11 points (5-7 FG, 1-1 3Pt), 10 rebounds, two assists and a steal across 33 minutes in Sunday's 115-113 win over the Thunder. Gibson has successfully slid into Minnesota's starting five after coming to the Timberwolves after a brief stint with the Thunder, although he had spent his entire career in Chicago prior to the Thunder trade. With no real companion for Karl-Anthony Towns in the frontcourt, Gibson will have ample opportunity to be fantasy-relevant. He's just on the cusp of that currently, as a slight increase in his current averages of 7 points and 7.3 rebounds per game could make a huge difference in his viability.
