  • Dieng, with Karl-Anthony Towns (knee/illness) making his return and starting, will come off the bench Friday against the Pacers, J. Michael of The Indianapolis Star reports. Dieng's 15-game run as a starter has come to a close, and with it, probably most of his fantasy value. In his 19 games off the bench this season, he's averaged 3.4 points and 3.6 rebounds in 11.6 minutes.

  • Dieng turned in 15 points (7-15 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 11 rebounds, three assists and one block in 29 minutes during Wednesday's 104-99 loss to the Pacers. Dieng drew another start with Karl-Anthony Towns (knee/illness) still sidelined and posted his sixth double-double in the last 13 tilts. With Towns reportedly recovered from his knee injury and now merely trying to shake off the illness, it's possible Dieng will head back to the bench for Friday's rematch versus the Pacers. If not though, Dieng will likely make for a solid option in daily leagues yet again.

  • Dieng had 12 points (5-10 FG, 2-4 3PT), 10 rebounds, two steals and one block in 17 minutes during Thursday's 116-102 win over the Blazers. Despite being a starter, Dieng failed to crack the 20-minute mark for the first time since becoming a starter 12 games ago. He still produced at a high level, and he now he has two double-doubles in his last three games, and three over his last six contests. He should remain a must-roster player as long as Karl-Anthony Towns remains sidelined due to injury.

  • Dieng had 11 points (4-10 FG, 1-6 3PT, 2-3 FT), four assists, two rebounds and one steal in 24 minutes during Tuesday's 119-112 loss at Memphis. Dieng has started each of Minnesota's last 11 games due to Karl-Anthony Towns' injury problems and he is averaging close to a double-double -- 13.5 points and 9.3 rebounds -- over that span. Dieng's upside will remain fairly high as long as he remains as a starter, and he has scored 10 or more points in four of his last five contests.

  • Dieng managed 22 points (8-10 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 13 rebounds, six assists and four blocks in 29 minutes during Sunday's 118-103 victory over Cleveland. Dieng had yet another dominant performance, making the most of an understrength Cavaliers frontcourt. Over the past two weeks, Dieng is unbelievably the 11th ranked player in nine-category leagues. He has always had the ability to be a consistent top-50 player; however, rarely sees enough court time. Karl-Anthony Towns (knee) has missed the last 10 games which has afforded Dieng multiple opportunities to produce. Towns appears to be getting closer to playing again, but until there's a definitive date for his return, Dieng is a clear must-roster player.
