Top Jaylen Nowell News

  • Timberwolves' Jaylen Nowell: Scores 15 points in limited action

    Nowell had 15 points (5-9 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT) in 12 minutes during Wednesday's 125-116 loss to the Suns.

    Nowell needed just 12 minutes off the bench to notch his sixth double-digit scoring outing over his past seven games. During that stretch, he's averaged 12.0 points, 2.6 rebounds and 1.9 assists in 17.9 minutes per game.

  • Timberwolves' Jaylen Nowell: Posts team-high 16 points

    Nowell logged 16 points (6-13 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and one assist across 22 minutes during Saturday's 113-104 win over the Heat.

    Although Nowell is buried in the Timberwolves' depth chart, frequent injury issues in the backcourt have given the Washington product additional playing time. He scored in double figures for the second consecutive contest Saturday after putting up 12 points in 13 minutes against Orlando during the front half of the back-to-back set Friday.

  • Timberwolves' Jaylen Nowell: Cleared to play

    Nowell (nose) is available for Wednesday's matchup against the Thunder, Jon Krawczynski of The Athletic reports.

    As expected, Nowell will play through a bruised nose. His past five appearances have resulted in averages of 9.0 points, 2.0 assists and 1.4 rebounds in 16.4 minutes.

  • Timberwolves' Jaylen Nowell: Probable Wednesday

    Nowell (nose) is probable for Wednesday's game against the Thunder.

    Nowell suffered a bruised nose during Monday's game against the Trail Blazers and had to exit early. However, he should be fine for Wednesday. It's possible he sees an increased role, as the Timberwolves are initially listing five players as questionable.

  • Timberwolves' Jaylen Nowell: Shut down for night

    Nowell won't return to Monday's game against Portland after taking an elbow to the face, Jon Krawczynski of The Athletic reports.

    Nowell took an inadvertent elbow to the face but avoided structural damage, per Krawczynski. Malik Beasley could see more minutes in Nowell's absence.

  • Timberwolves' Jaylen Nowell: Pops for 22 points in win

    Nowell registered 22 points (8-13 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 2-3 FT), two assists and one rebound in 24 minutes during Saturday's 135-121 victory over the Trail Blazers.

    Nowell came through with the goods for anyone lucky enough to have streamed him Saturday. With Patrick Beverley (ankle) and Anthony Edwards (knee) both sidelined and Malik Beasley getting ejected, Nowell made the most of a favorable situation. Prior to this outburst, Nowell had failed to score more than seven points since early February, highlighting the fact that this performance should be viewed as an outlier.

  • Timberwolves' Jaylen Nowell: Ceding playing time to Beasley

    Nowell provided one point (0-1 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four assists and one rebound across seven minutes Sunday in the Timberwolves' 118-105 win over the Pistons.

    After picking up a spot start in place of Patrick Beverley on Jan. 28, Nowell has since moved back into a bench role. The third-year guard has largely been a reliable scoring option on the second unit since late December, but he's seemingly fallen behind Malik Beasley and Taurean Prince in the pecking order over the past week and a half. Nowell has now seen his playing time drop in three consecutive games, with the seven minutes he received Sunday representing his lowest total in three weeks.

  • Timberwolves' Jaylen Nowell: Plays just 15 minutes in start

    Nowell posted 10 points (4-8 FG, 2-4 3Pt) and one rebound over 15 minutes during Friday's 134-124 loss to the Suns.

    Getting the start with both Patrick Beverley (ankle) and D'Angelo Russell (lower leg) out, Nowell put up 10 points in 15 minutes, but he was also whistled for four fouls, so coach Chris Finch ultimately turned to Jordan McLaughlin (17 minutes) and Malik Beasley (28 minutes) in the backcourt. If Beverley or Russell miss additional time, Nowell could make another start Sunday vs. Utah.

  • Timberwolves' Jaylen Nowell: Available, starting Friday

    Nowell (lower body) is starting Friday's game against the Suns.

    The 22-year-old will make his first career start Friday since Patrick Beverley (ankle) and D'Angelo Russell (shin) are unavailable. Nowell has averaged 12.3 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.8 assists in 22.7 minutes per game across his last six appearances.

  • Timberwolves' Jaylen Nowell: Probable vs. Suns

    Nowell (lower body) is probable for Friday's matchup against the Suns.

    Nowell has appeared in the past six games, and that streak should extend Friday. During this stretch, he's averaged 12.3 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.8 assists in 22.7 minutes.

  • Timberwolves' Jaylen Nowell: Will play Thursday

    Nowell (lower body) will play in Thursday's contest against the Warriors, Dane Moore of BringMeTheNews.com reports.

    Nowell is set to play Thursday while Minnesota's starting point guard, Patrick Beverley (ankle) has been ruled out. The 22-year-old should see a decent amount of minutes against the Warriors as he's averaging 12.8 points, 3.2 rebounds and 3.0 assists in his last five games.

  • Timberwolves' Jaylen Nowell: Likely to play Thursday

    Powell (lower body) is likely to play Thursday against the Warriors, Chris Hine of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    Powell is still officially listed as questionable ahead of Thursday's matchup, but coach Chris Finch said after the team's morning shootaround that the 22-year-old will "probably" be able to suit up against Golden State. Across his last five appearances, he's averaged 12.8 points, 3.2 rebounds and 3.0 assists in 21.4 minutes per game.

  • Timberwolves' Jaylen Nowell: Questionable for Thursday

    Nowell is questionable for Thursday's game against the Warriors due to a sacrum contusion.

    Nowell is reportedly dealing with a bruised sacrum, which puts his status ahead of Thursday's matchup with Golden State in doubt. With Patrick Beverley (ankle) also dealing with an injury, Malik Beasley could see increased run in the Timberwolves backcourt alongside D'Angelo Russell if either is forced to sit.

  • Timberwolves' Jaylen Nowell: Ready for Wednesday

    Nowell (ankle) is available for Wednesday's game against the Hawks.

    Nowell was considered probable with the left ankle sprain and will once again play through the injury. He hasn't appeared hampered by the issue and has totaled 31 points (11-21 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 5-8 FT), eight rebounds, seven assists, one steal and one block over the past two games.

  • Timberwolves' Jaylen Nowell: Probable Wednesday

    Nowell (ankle) is probable for Wednesday's game against Atlanta.

    Nowell continues to deal with a left ankle sprain but has been able to play through the issue in each of the last two games. Across that span, he averaged 15.5 points, 4.0 rebounds and 3.5 assists in 24.0 minutes per game. It appears likely that he'll be able to suit up again Wednesday.

  • Timberwolves' Jaylen Nowell: Scores 14 points off bench

    Nowell ended with 14 points (5-12 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), six rebounds, three assists and one steal over 23 minutes during Tuesday's 112-110 win over the Knicks.

    Nowell landed on the injury report before the contest with a sprained left ankle, but it didn't appear to limit him, as he scored in double figures for the second straight game. Over his last two contests, the 2019 second-round pick has totaled 31 points, eight rebounds, seven assists, one steal and one block while shooting 52.4 percent from the field and 44.4 percent from three. It may be difficult for Nowell to maintain this type of production from a reserve role, but fantasy managers should continue to keep an eye out for the budding young prospect.

  • Timberwolves' Jaylen Nowell: Good to go Tuesday

    Nowell (ankle) is available Tuesday against the Knicks.

    Nowell was initially probable with a sprained left ankle. He's reached double-digit points in nine of his past 11 games, and one of those that he didn't achieve the mark was the game where he suffered the injury and played two minutes.

  • Timberwolves' Jaylen Nowell: Listed as probable for Tuesday

    Nowell is listed as probable for Tuesday's contest against the Knicks with a left ankle sprain.

    Nowell played 25 minutes (his most since Jan. 3) and scored 17 points during Sunday's 119-99 win over the Warriors, but he presumably picked up an ankle injury during the contest as well. The 2019 second-round pick will likely be available, but the Timberwolves may elect to be cautious with the youngster considering Tuesday is the start of a back-to-back.

  • Timberwolves' Jaylen Nowell: Flashes for 17 points in win

    Nowell had 17 points (6-9 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 2-4 FT), two rebounds, four assists and one block in 25 minutes during Sunday's 119-99 win over the Warriors.

    The Wolves started Patrick Beverley and D'Angelo Russell in the backcourt, as usual, but coach Chris Finch leaned more heavily than usual on Nowell and Malik Beasley (24 minutes), who combined to outscore the starting guards 33 to 17. Nowell looks to be picking up some confidence of late, and he's beginning to finally have more consistency in his nightly role.
