McLaughlin produced 14 points (6-10 FG, 2-4 3Pt), nine assists, three rebounds and one steal in 28 minutes during Friday's 132-118 loss to Orlando. McLaughlin continues to impress, falling just one assist short of another double-double. The playing time was elevated due to the fact D'Angelo Russell couldn't hit the side of a barn; however, McLaughlin has certainly been making a name for himself of late. He has been a fringe top1-00 player over the past two weeks in only 22 minutes a night. It is hard to predict exactly what may lie ahead for McLaughlin but given the current production, he certainly warrants a roster spot in deeper formats.
McLaughlin managed four points (1-4 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-4 FT), four steals, three assists and two rebounds in 17 minutes during Sunday's 111-91 loss to the Mavericks. McLaughlin finished with a career high steal total and stuffed the stat sheet despite seeing limited minutes. The 23-year-old rookie has been fairly impressive in spurts, but unless D'Angelo Russell misses time McLaughlin's value will be limited to deeper formats.
McLaughlin notched 15 points (5-9 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 3-3 FT), 10 assists, four rebounds and a steal in 34 minutes during Sunday's 128-116 loss at Denver. McLaughlin got the start due to the absence of D'Angelo Russell (knee/chest) and thrived. He's posted double-doubles in his two starts this season, but the rookie is expected to head back to the bench for Monday's game at Dallas.
McLaughlin will start Sunday's game at Denver, Chris Hine of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. D'Angelo Russell (knee/rest) is out Sunday, pushing McLaughlin back into the starting five. He'll likely return to the bench Monday in Dallas, since Russell is expected to return. McLaughlin made his lone start of the season Feb. 8 against the Clippers and put up 24 points, four rebounds and 11 assists.
McLaughlin will come off the bench Monday against the Raptors. With D'Angelo Russell (quad) set to make his debut for the Timberwolves on Monday, McLaughlin will shift to a reserve role. Over his past 10 games, McLaughlin is averaging 7.9 points, 4.7 assist, 1.6 rebounds and 1.1 steals in 21.9 minutes.
