Wiggins finished with 20 points (8-15 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-7 FT), five rebounds, two assists and a steal over 38 minutes in the Timberwolves' loss to the Hornets on Thursday. Wiggins finished just one off of the team-lead in scoring behind Karl-Anthony Towns in Thursday's loss. Wiggins is averaging his fewest points per game (17.5) since his 2014 rookie season due mainly to the worst shooting mark of his career (39.8 percent). Still, he has a great opportunity for increased production. With injuries piling up in the Minnesota backcourt, Wiggins' role on offense should be extensive down the stretch.
Wiggins finished with 20 points (8-19 FG, 1-8 3Pt, 3-4 FT), eight rebounds, six assists and a steal over 41 minutes in the Timberwolves' loss to the Warriors on Tuesday. Wiggins had a big game on Tuesday, despite losing to the Warriors. He stuffed the stat sheet with solid contributions in scoring, rebounding and assists. The former Jayhawk has seen his scoring average and field goal percentage decline for three straight years, and though Wiggins is a serviceable fantasy option, he's proven that he wasn't worth the huge five-year extension the Timberwolves signed him to in 2017.
Wiggins had 14 points (6-17 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-3 FT), three rebounds, and one block in 30 minutes during Thursday's 120-100 loss to the Jazz. Wiggins was dreadful in his return from a three-game absence with a thigh injury. He's posting his lowest scoring average since his rookie campaign, and he's connecting on a career-low 39.9 percent from the field. It's been another disappointing season for the 24-year-old wing, but he is at least managing career-high averages in rebounding, assists, threes, and blocks.
Wiggins (thigh) is starting Thursday night against Utah. As expected, Wiggins has been cleared to return and will enter the starting lineup. The Kansas product was averaging 16.4 points, 4.4 rebounds and 1.4 assists in his previous five contests before the injury.
Wiggins (thigh) will start at small forward in Thursday's matchup with Utah. Wiggins was officially listed as questionable entering Thursday's game but it was anticipated that he'd play. Though he isn't expected to be hampered by his thigh injury, Keita Bates-Diop will likely see some added minutes if Wiggins is at all limited.
