    Timberwolves' Jake Layman: Scores 14 points in spot start

    Jake Layman totaled 14 points (5-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT), two steals, one rebound and one assist in 26 minutes during Wednesday's 135-102 loss to the Hornets.Layman shifted into the starting lineup as new head coach Chris Finch continues to play with his rotations. The promotion was a good move on paper, although it did not bring with it spectacular production. The Minnesota Timberwolves are a complete mess right now and outside of Karl-Anthony Towns, Ricky Rubio and Anthony Edwards, there are no sure-fire winners in terms of fantasy consistency.

    Timberwolves' Jake Layman: Starting Wednesday

    Jake Layman will start in Wednesday's game against the Hornets.Coming off a season-high 30 minutes in Sunday's loss to the Suns, Layman will get the start over Josh Okogie Wednesday. It's a great opportunity for Layman, who managed to log 11 points, four rebounds, four assists and one block in his last appearance. While it seems unlikely that he'll be a fixture in the starting lineup for Minnesota going forward, he's certainly earned the opportunity for increased minutes.

    Timberwolves' Jake Layman: Plays season-high 30 minutes

    Jake Layman logged 11 points (5-8 FG, 1-3 3Pt), four rebounds, four assists and one block across 30 minutes Sunday in the Minnesota Timberwolves' 118-99 loss to the Suns.After being outside of the rotation for the last three games, Layman surprising became one of three Minnesota players who logged at least 30 minutes in the loss, joining starters Anthony Edwards and Karl-Anthony Towns. Jarred Vanderbilt (15 minutes) and Jaden McDaniels (eight minutes) both had their playing time squeezed as a result, and given how he performed, Layman may get a look on the second unit at least temporarily. With averages of 6.1 points, 1.6 rebounds, 0.8 steals, 0.7 assists and 0.6 three-pointers in 15.0 minutes per game on the season, Layman doesn't profile as much of a fantasy option.

    Timberwolves' Jake Layman: Boosts bench with eight points

    Jake Layman scored eight points (3-4 FG, 2-2 3Pt) and collected three rebounds Friday in a loss to the Raptors.Layman played only 13 minutes in the contest, but his plus-14 plus/minus was tops on the team. Layman had not played in any of Minnesota's previous five contests, so perhaps Friday's positive performance will help him make his way back into Minnesota's rotation.

    Timberwolves' Jake Layman: Outstanding numbers in Saturday's loss

    Jake Layman tallied 16 points (6-9 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 2-3 FT), five steals, two rebounds and one assist in 23 minutes off the bench Saturday in the Minnesota Timberwolves' 120-118 loss to the Thunder.The minutes, points and steals totals were all season highs for Layman, who has been included in the rotation in each of the past eight games while Jarrett Culver (ankle) has been on the mend. While the numbers don't look all that sustainable for Layman, he could see increased opportunities at small forward in future games, given how poorly both Culver and incumbent starter Josh Okogie have played this season.

    Timberwolves' Jake Layman: Productive in limited minutes

    Jake Layman totaled seven points (3-6 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 0-2 FT), four rebounds, two steals and a blocked shot across 19 minutes Wednesday in a loss to Golden State.Layman didn't blow up in any particular category, but he produced a nice across-the-board stat line despite logging less than 20 minutes on the court. The forward is averaging 5.1 points and 1.3 boards in his second season with the Minnesota Timberwolves.

    Timberwolves' Jake Layman: Left out of rotation in return

    Jake Layman (coach's decision) didn't leave the bench Monday in the Minnesota Timberwolves' 108-97 loss to the Hawks.Layman was active after missing the Wolves' previous two games while tending to a personal matter, but head coach Ryan Saunders couldn't find a spot for the 26-year-old in his rotation. Even with three key contributors (Karl-Anthony Towns, Juancho Hernangomez and Ricky Rubio) out due to COVID-19 health and safety protocols, Layman still found himself behind Josh Okogie, Jarred Vanderbilt, Jarrett Culver and Jaden McDaniels in the pecking order at either forward spot. Even in deeper leagues, Layman looks to be a long way away from attaining relevance.

    Timberwolves' Jake Layman: Ruled out Wednesday

    Jake Layman (personal) will not play in Wednesday's game against the Grizzlies.Layman's role has been diminished over the last few games, especially following the return of Josh Okogie to the lineup. At this time, it's unclear why Layman was ruled out Wednesday, but he probably wouldn't have seen a lot of minutes even if he was available.
