Vanderbilt contributed eight points (4-5 FG) and 13 rebounds across 30 minutes during Thursday's 116-108 loss to Memphis. Vanderbilt has registered double-digit rebounds 16 times this season, including at least 13 boards 10 times. On the season, he's averaging 6.6 points and 9.2 rebounds in 25.6 minutes per game, but his fantasy potential is limited with Anthony Edwards, Karl-Anthony Towns and D'Angelo Russell handling most of the offensive production. Either way, Vanderbilt's energy and nose for the ball make him a high-floor option in most formats.
Vanderbilt produced 21 points (10-14 FG, 1-3 FT), 19 rebounds, four assists, two blocks and two steals in 31 minutes during Sunday's 141-123 victory over the Rockets. Vanderbilt came within one rebound of posting his first career 20-20 double-double Sunday, but he was on the bench in the closing minutes since the Timberwolves held a comfortable lead. However, the 22-year-old still posted a career high on the boards and has now brought in double-digit rebounds in four of the last five games. Across that span, he's averaged 9.6 points and 13.8 rebounds in 29.8 minutes per contest.
Vanderbilt provided 11 points (5-9 FG, 1-3 FT), 16 rebounds, three assists and three steals over 28 minutes during Friday's 135-105 victory over Oklahoma City. Vanderbilt was a beast on the boards Friday, tying his season high -- a mark he set during a 110-92 win over the Lakers on Dec. 17. The fourth-year big man also scored in double figures for the first time since Dec. 12 and notched his fourth double-double of the season. On the year, he's averaging 6.1 points, 9.0 rebounds and 1.5 steals in 25.3 minutes.
Vanderbilt posted eight points (4-7 FG, 0-1 3Pt), nine rebounds and one steal in 28 minutes Monday in the Timberwolves' 122-104 win over the Clippers. Vanderbilt has now appeared in three contests following a six-game absence while in the NBA's COVID-19 health and safety protocols. He received only 22 minutes in his first game back in action Dec. 31, but Vanderbilt has seen his playing time in the subsequent two contests increase now that he's gotten a chance to get reconditioned. Thanks to his strong field-goal percentage and solid contributions in rebounds and the two defensive categories, Vanderbilt looks like a roster-worthy player in the majority of 12-team leagues.
Vanderbilt (conditioning) is available to play Sunday against the Lakers. Though the forward is still working to get back to full speed, Vanderbilt will be active for the Wolves as they face the Lakers. Vanderbilt posted five points and added seven rebounds in 22 minutes during the team's loss to the Jazz on Friday.
