    Timberwolves' Jordan McLaughlin: Eight points, six dimes off bench

    Jordan McLaughlin had eight points (3-9 FG, 2-3 3Pt), six assists and four rebounds in Sunday's loss to the Knicks.The bad news is Minnesota took another loss and fired its head coach, but the good news is McLaughlin continues to be quietly productive as the backup to Ricky Rubio with D'Angelo Russell (knee) sidelined. While he broke a streak of five straight games with at least one steal, McLaughlin now has at least six assists in six of his last eight contests.

    Timberwolves' Jordan McLaughlin: Playing well as backup point guard

    Jordan McLaughlin scored six points (2-4 FG, 2-2 FT) and added four assists, three rebounds, two steals and one block across 19 minutes Sunday in the Minnesota Timberwolves' 116-112 win over the Raptors.McLaughlin was expected to spent all of February at the G League bubble in Orlando, but the injury to D'Angelo Russell (leg) prompted the Timberwolves to recall him. The 24-year-old has proceeded to step in as the backup point guard behind Ricky Rubio, and he's done a solid job of conducting the second unit. He's received no fewer than 19 minutes in each of the last three games, averaging 4.7 points, 5.7 assists, 2.3 rebounds and 2.0 steals. So long as at least Rubio is healthy, McLaughlin won't be worth a pickup outside of the deepest of league, but he could have some short-term appeal as a DFS punt play so long as Russell is out.

    Timberwolves' Jordan McLaughlin: Excels as backup point guard

    Jordan McLaughlin tallied 15 points (7-12 FG, 1-2 3Pt), five assists, two rebounds and one steal in 22 minutes off the bench Monday in the Minnesota Timberwolves' 130-108 loss to the Warriors.With D'Angelo Russell (quadriceps) missing his second game in a row, Ricky Rubio moved up to the starting five, allowing McLaughlin to stay in the rotation as the backup point guard. Due to the blowout nature of the contest, the second unit received some extra run, and McLaughlin was able to churn out a useful all-around line. With career averages of 7.3 points, 4.2 assists, 1.8 rebounds and 1.0 steals in 19.2 minutes, McLaughlin has shown the ability to produce effectively when given playing time, but the opportunity likely won't be there for him when Russell is back in action.

    Timberwolves' Jordan McLaughlin: Racks up dimes in blowout loss

    Jordan McLaughlin contributed two points (1-4 FG, 0-1 3Pt) and nine assists across 18 minutes Tuesday in the Minnesota Timberwolves' 124-101 loss to the Clippers.McLaughlin showed an ability to shoot efficiently and rack up assists when given playing time as a rookie in 2019-20, but his path to a consistent spot in the rotation remains blocked with D'Angelo Russell, Malik Beasley, Ricky Rubio and Anthony Edwards all ahead of him in the pecking order at guard. The two-way player has seen double-digit minutes in the Wolves' last two games, but both were blowout losses.

    Timberwolves' Jordan McLaughlin: Nears double-double in loss

    Jordan 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.
