Wiggins totaled eight points (4-11 FG, 0-1 3Pt) and four rebounds across 33 minutes in Thursday's 119-111 win over the Lakers. Wiggins thus heads into the All-Star break on a down note, having scored a combined 15 points on 24.0 percent shooting (6-for-25) over his last two games, a stretch during which he came up empty on six attempts from behind the arc. The 22-year-old had scored in double digits in 12 of the prior 13 games, so the current slump figures to be just a temporary funk that the upcoming layoff could well cure. However, it's worth noting that the Timberwolves' numerous offseason additions have undeniably had an effect on Wiggins' overall usage and fantasy value, as he's seen a six-point-plus drop in scoring (23.6 to 17.5) over last season while also averaging well over three fewer shot attempts (19.1 to 15.7) per contest.
Wiggins mustered up just seven points (2-14 FG, 0-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT), three rebounds, one steal, and one block in 41 minutes during Tuesday's 126-108 loss to the Rockets. Wiggins was downright awful, and this was his second seven-point showing through six February affairs. It also matched his season-low scoring total, which Wiggins has posted four times through 60 appearances in 2017-18. Moreover, he has scored in single digits six times this season compared to just three times in 2016-17. It's unlikely that this is the last bump in the road for Wiggins either.
Wiggins had 16 points (7-13 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), eight rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in 35 minutes during Sunday's 111-106 victory over Sacramento. Wiggins connected on 7 of his 13 field-goal attempts, making this the fourth consecutive game of at least 50 percent shooting. He appears to have settled into a nice role of late, taking better shots and abandoning the three-point shot and attacking the basket with more regularity. He is the third option on offense and looks like he is now accepting of this.
Wiggins scored 18 points (9-14 FG, 0-2 3PT) to go with four rebounds and one block in 37 minutes during Friday's 114-113 loss to Chicago. In three straight games, Wiggins has shot the ball rather well, shooting at least 50.0 percent. During this span, the forward is shooting 56.0 percent on 13.6 shots. In his last 10 games, Wiggins is averaging 18.7 points while collecting 4.3 rebounds per game. Overall, his scoring has dropped 5.7 points from his career-high of 23.9 points set in 2016-17. To find Jimmy Butler's impact on Minnesota's offense, look no further than the dramatic drop in scoring by Wiggins in the span of a year.
Wiggins scored 15 points (7-14 FG, 1-3 3PT) to go with three rebounds, one assist and one steal in 37 minutes during Saturday's 118-107 win against New Orleans. Averaging 15.2 points and 5.0 rebounds in his last five games, Wiggins has been statistically solid as of late. However, since shooting 60.3 percent while averaging 31.0 points from January 20-24, Wiggins is shooting 38.7 percent in his next six games since then. Scoring-wise, the forward is closer to his season average of 17.9 points, but Wiggins will look to improve upon his shooting moving forward.
