  • Dieng scored 12 points with five rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 24 minutes in Wednesday's loss at San Antonio. Dieng got the most time of any backup off the bench with the Spurs mostly using a big lineup and with Karl-Athony Towns in foul trouble, but his performance continues the spark he showed in the preseason. He averaged just 16.9 minutes per game last year with the T-Wolves acquiring Jimmy Butler and Taj Gibson. However, that playing time could increase this season if head coach Tom Thibodeau uses his starters less. However, Thibodeau rarely depends on his bench and Dieng will battle Anthony Tolliver off the bench for playing time most nights.

  • Dieng totaled 11 points (5-9 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), and seven rebounds in 19 minutes during Sunday's 125-107 preseason loss to the Bucks. Dieng is in one of the more frustrating fantasy position of any player in the league. As a guy who has top 50 upside, his role on the team over the course of the 2017-18 season was one of bewilderment. Talks are that the Timberwolves are looking to offload his contract as part of the Jimmy Butler deal but so far a deal has not been reached. If he manages to land in a favorable spot he could certainly return to the player he was only two seasons ago. At this stage, however, he has no standard league value and is only worth a look in deeper formats in the hope the winds of change strike lucky for the big man from Senegal.

  • Dieng contributed six points (3-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt), eight rebounds, two steals, two blocked shots and an assist over 19 minutes in Saturday's 114-110 preseason win over the Warriors. Dieng will serve as the Wolves' center in the second unit behind Karl-Anthony Towns. It's unlikely that you'll see Dieng out-rebound the rest of the team as he did on Friday, and at the moment he holds minimal fantasy value.

  • Timberwolves' Gorgui Dieng: Plays well off bench
    By RotoWire Staff

    Dieng recorded six points (3-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt), three rebounds, one assist and one steal during Thursday's 100-96 loss to the Nuggets. Despite seeing just 15 minutes of action, Dieng played well off the bench and contributed with tallies in many statistical categories. The former Louisville Cardinal is adding 5.9 points and 4.5 rebounds this season, which are both drastically declines from 10.0 points and 7.9 rebounds per game last year.

  • Timberwolves' Gorgui Dieng: Double-doubles in loss
    By RotoWire Staff

    Dieng had 15 points (6-12 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 11 rebounds, two blocks, one assist and one steal in 26 minutes during Saturday's 120-108 loss to the 76ers. Dieng, along with the other bench players, saw some additional playing time Saturday. The first unit was blown out resulting in the second unit playing basically the entire fourth quarter. Dieng has shown previously what he can do when he is given a decent amount of playing time so this production comes as no surprise. Owners would need to see this again before running to grab him off the waivers.
