Wiggins has committed to play for Team Canada at the 2019 FIBA World Cup in China, Arash Madani of Sportsnet reports. While Wiggins has been somewhat of a disappointment at the NBA level, he remains one of the top Canadian players in the league, and his presence on the roster should provide a major boost as Team Canada attempts to qualify for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. Wiggins closed the 2018-19 season -- his fifth in the NBA -- with averages of 18.1 points, 4.8 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.0 steals per game.
Wiggins tallied 25 points (11-20 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 0-1 FT), five rebounds, and four assists in 36 minutes during Wednesday's 99-95 loss to Denver. Wiggins paced the Timberwolves with 25 points in Wednesday's loss, bringing to an end what was a disappointing season for both himself and the team. He continues to be one of the more frustrating players across all fantasy formats, with his upside typically outweighed by his lack of effort on both ends of the floor. He continues to struggle from the free-throw line and outside of a few random performances, his defense in basically non-existent.
Wiggins compiled 24 points (9-15 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 3-5 FT), five rebounds, four assists and two steals over 34 minutes Sunday against the Thunder. Wiggins shot an impressive 60 percent from the field on a night when the Timberwolves would score 126 points, although it wouldn't be enough to overcome the Thunder's explosive offense. The Kansas product's scoring contributions have remained steady down the stretch of the regular season, averaging 20.4 points in his previous 10 contests.
Wiggins totaled 21 points (7-18 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 6-6 FT), seven rebounds, four assists and a steal over 34 minutes in the Timberwolves' loss to the Trail Blazers on Monday. Wiggins led the Timberwolves in scoring in Monday's loss, finishing with his seventh consecutive 20-point game. In those seven games, Wiggins has averaged a respectable 21.9 points, 6.0 rebounds and 3.4 assists. Fantasy owners should continue to employ Wiggins in the midst of a hot streak on offense.
Wiggins supplied 24 points (9-18 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), six rebounds, five assists and two blocks across 36 minutes in the Timberwolves' 118-109 loss to the 76ers on Saturday. Wiggins checked in as the top scorer for the T-Wolves on the night, extending his recent hot stretch of play. The 2014 first overall pick has scored 20 points or more in six straight games, shooting at least 50.0 percent in three of them. Efficiency on offense has been an issue all season for Wiggins, but he's finishing up the campaign on a better note after having generated a respectable 45.6 percent success rate in March, including 34.6 percent from three-point range.
