  • Timberwolves' Shabazz Muhammad: Stuck on bench
    By RotoWire Staff

    Muhammad did not play in Sunday's win at Dallas due to a coach's decision. Muhammad has fallen out of favor with head coach Tom Thibodeau as he's been a healthy scratch in five of the last six games and played just three minutes in the other.

  • Muhammad poured in nine points (3-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-4 FT) and added two rebounds over nine minutes in Saturday's 118-110 loss to the Suns. The veteran forward made the most of his time on the court, leading the second unit in scoring and posting his second-best point total of the season. Muhammad is seeing his lowest amount of minutes (14.6) since his rookie campaign, rendering him a fantasy non-factor in all but the deepest of formats for the time being.

  • Muhammad did not score and had one rebound in 12 minutes in Friday's win over Oklahoma City. With the return of Jimmy Butler from an illness, Muhammad came off the bench after being in the starting lineup the last two games. Muhammad may struggle to find minutes off the bench with Andrew Wiggins and Jimmy Butler likely taking up huge workloads on the wing and Jamal Crawford likely set to get significant minutes as a reserve.

  • Muhammad posted four points (1-9 FG, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, one assist and one steal across 29 minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Pistons. With Jimmy Butler (illness) missing his second straight game, Muhammad made his second straight start, but failed to get anything going offensively after a solid 14-point outing Tuesday. Muhammed remains a high-risk value option should Butler miss any more games later in the season.

  • Muhammad will make another start in place of Jimmy Butler (illness) Wednesday against the Pistons, Jerry Zgoda of the Star Tribune reports. For the second straight night, Muhammad will move into the starting five, and he should again be in line for an increased role after playing a season-high 31 minutes in Tuesday's loss to the Pacers. Muhammad finished with 14 points (7-14 FG, 0-1 3PT) in that contest but recorded only two rebounds, one assist and one steal.
