Culver posted 13 points (5-11 FG, 3-6 3Pt) and five rebounds in 21 minutes during the Timberwolves' 115-108 victory over the Bulls on Wednesday. The rookie has now scored in double-figures for three consecutive contests, which is something that he hasn't done since his hot streak through the first half of January. Culver is averaging 24.1 minutes per game, but an uptick in his role could begin to present fantasy-relevant numbers.
Culver supplied 14 points (5-8 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 1-4 FT), five assists, three rebounds and a steal across 26 minutes Sunday in the Timberwolves' 128-116 loss to the Nuggets. After a 12-game stretch in which he converted just 32.5 percent of his attempts from the field and 28.6 percent of his attempts from three-point range, Culver finally found his shooting touch. While he was rewarded with hefty minutes as a result, Culver will need more than one solid outing to substantially cut into the playing time of starting wings Malik Beasley and Josh Okogie.
Culver isn't in the starting lineup Saturday against the Clippers. Culver started 19 of the last 20 games and averaged 11.2 points, 3.9 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.2 steals over 28.4 minutes in that stretch, but he'll move to the bench Saturday. The team turned over much of the roster at the trade deadline, so the rotations are likely to be fluid for the near future.
Culver had seven points (3-9 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 1-3 FT), three assists, one rebound, one steal and one block in 30 minutes during Wednesday's loss to the Hawks. Seeing just 15 percent of his minutes at the point guard spot up to this point on the season, Culver slowly has been integrated into the lead guard role on this Timberwolves team. Now that both Jeff Teague and Shabazz Napier are gone, Culver likely will step into a much larger point guard role, barring another trade that might see Minnesota acquire a starting-caliber floor general. Putting up just 9.2 points, 3.5 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.0 steals per game on poor percentages, it'll take some work for the 21-year old to break into the standard-league threshold, but he's certainly a player worth monitoring down the stretch of the fantasy season.
Culver produced just five points, three steals, two rebounds and one assist in 26 minutes during Monday's 133-129 loss to Sacramento. Culver managed three steals in Monday's loss, salvaging what was a disappointing night for the rookie. After a brief period of 12-team relevance, Culver has regressed over the past two weeks, falling outside the top 200. He is more of a steals streamer at this point and should be viewed as a long-term asset in deeper formats only.
