  • Timberwolves' Nickeil Alexander-Walker: All-around performance in win

    Alexander-Walker logged a season-high 20 points (8-16 FG, 4-8 3Pt), seven assists, five rebounds, five steals and two blocks over 36 minutes in Thursday's 101-90 victory over the Jazz.

    In his fifth consecutive start, Alexander-Walker was finally able to break out in the scoring department, especially in the absence of Anthony Edwards (hip). In those five starts, Alexander-Walker is averaging 9.0 points, 3.4 assists, 3.0 rebounds, 1.6 steals and 0.8 blocks across 29.4 minutes. As Edwards (questionable for Saturday) and Jaden McDaniels (ankle) continue to miss time, Alexander-Walker will likely see extended minutes and more starts until they return.

  • Timberwolves' Nickeil Alexander-Walker: Solid performance in start

    Alexander-Walker contributed seven points (3-6 FG, 1-4 3Pt), six rebounds, four assists and one block across 29 minutes during Wednesday's 112-99 victory over the 76ers.

    Alexander-Walker was inserted into the starting five with Jaden McDaniels (ankle) expected to be sidelined for multiple weeks. While Alexander-Walker didn't see a sizeable usage increase, he contributed on both ends and didn't commit a turnover. Fantasy managers should still consider adding Alexander-Walker, with Kyle Anderson making for a decent pickup option as well. When seeing at least 24 minutes last season, Alexander-Walker averaged 13.8 points, 4.1 rebounds, 3.6 assists, 1.2 steals and 0.8 blocks.

  • Timberwolves' Nickeil Alexander-Walker: Gets starting nod

    Alexander-Walker is in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game versus the 76ers.

    Alexander-Walker will enter the starting five Wednesday with Jaden McDaniels (ankle) out. Alexander-Walker is averaging 3.5 points, 3.5 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 1.0 assists and 1.0 blocks in 23.0 minutes across his previous two starting appearances this season.

  • Timberwolves' Nickeil Alexander-Walker: Scores season-high mark Monday

    Alexander-Walker racked up 11 points (4-8 FG, 3-6 3Pt), three rebounds and three assists across 33 minutes during Monday's 117-100 victory over New York.

    Alexander-Walker delivered his best scoring output of the season, and it's worth noting he has scored in double figures in three of his last five appearances. The backup guard saw increased playing time in the second half of Monday's contest after Jaden McDaniels (ankle) left early, and if the latter is forced to miss additional time, the former could slide into the starting lineup for a few games.

  • Timberwolves' Nickeil Alexander-Walker: Season-high eight points

    Alexander-Walker totaled eight points (3-6 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 0-1 FT), one rebound, three assists and one steal across 20 minutes during Monday's 114-109 overtime win over Boston.

    Alexander-Walker set season highs in made three-pointers and points. The defensive-minded guard has carved out a solid secondary role in Minnesota's backcourt, but his production hasn't been worthy of consideration in most fantasy formats. At best, Alexander-Walker is a streaming option for managers in need of defensive production in category leagues.

    Alexander-Walker isn't starting Monday's game against the Hawks.

    Alexander-Walker started his team's first two contests of the 2023-24 campaign, but he'll head back to the bench with Jaden McDaniels returning to the starting five. Alexander-Walker totaled seven points, seven rebounds, five assists, two steals and two blocks over 46 minutes in his first two contests of the year.

  • Timberwolves' Nickeil Alexander-Walker: Starting season opener

  • Timberwolves' Nickeil Alexander-Walker: Scores 11 points in preseason start

    Alexander-Walker notched 11 points (3-5 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, five assists and two blocks across 22 minutes in Thursday's 111-99 preseason win over the Mavericks.

    Alexander-Walker started with Anthony Edwards (ankle) sidelined, and he delivered a solid stat line while leaving his mark on both ends of the court. Alexander-Walker will undoubtedly see minutes off the bench, but he's not expected to start regularly, particularly considering that Edwards' injury is not serious.

  • Timberwolves' Nickeil Alexander-Walker: Starting preseason opener

    Alexander-Walker is starting Thursday's preseason game against the Mavericks.

  • Timberwolves' Nickeil Alexander-Walker: Back with Minnesota

    Alexander-Walker and the Timberwolves agreed to a two-year deal Friday, Jon Krawczynski of The Athletic reports.

    Alexander-Walker was traded to the Timberwolves at the deadline last year and averaged 6.9 points, 2.0 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 19.4 minutes across 29 appearances with his new team. He started four of Minnesota's five playoff matchups versus Denver, averaging 8.4 points, 2.0 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 29.6 minutes during the postseason. Alexander-Walker figures to be a solid reserve guard behind Mike Conley and Anthony Edwards during the 2023-24 campaign.

  • Nickeil Alexander-Walker: Set to hit free agency

    The Timberwolves didn't extend a qualifying offer to Alexander-Walker on Thursday, allowing him to become an unrestricted free agent, Michael Scotto of USA Today reports.

    Alexander-Walker could still re-sign with Minnesota, but the Timberwolves will not have the ability to match any offer he receives in free agency. The 24-year-old guard averaged 6.2 points, 1.8 assists and 1.7 rebounds in 15.0 minutes across 59 games in 2022-23.

  • Timberwolves' Nickeil Alexander-Walker: Spot start yields little

    Alexander-Walker amassed eight points (3-5 FG, 2-2 3Pt), two rebounds and one assist in 22 minutes during Friday's 120-111 loss to the Nuggets in Game 3 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals.

    Alexander-Walker moved into the starting lineup Friday, replacing Taurean Prince, who shifted back the bench. Despite the promotion, Alexander-Walker could not put up meaningful production, which has plagued him throughout his career. The Timberwolves will look to salvage some pride in Game 4, although it appears highly unlikely the series will extend beyond five games.
