Top Jaden McDaniels News

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Turns in 17 points

    McDaniels closed with 17 points (6-11 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five rebounds, one assist and two steals across 28 minutes during Thursday's 128-91 win over Portland.

    McDaniels' value as a fantasy target is a variance-filled proposition, as his numbers fluctuate nightly. He scored nine points in the first quarter, and Minnesota's 44-14 lead marked the most lopsided quarter of the season. The Timberwolves are running hot with four straight wins, and despite some rocky numbers, McDaniels has value as a consistent starter with the first unit.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Good to go against Portland

    McDaniels is available for Tuesday's game versus the Timberwolves.

    McDaniels has been upgraded from questionable to available Tuesday despite dealing with a left index finger sprain. McDaniels is averaging 9.4 points, 2.4 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 29.0 minutes across his last five appearances.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Returns to injury report

    McDaniels is questionable for Tuesday's game against Portland due to a left index finger sprain.

    McDaniels has been appearing on Timberwolves injury reports for the past week due to the finger sprain, but he has yet to miss a game. He posted 11 points (5-8 FG), one assist, one steal and one rebound across 25 minutes in Minnesota's win over the Clippers and likely would have seen more playing time in the fourth quarter if the game hadn't been a blowout. Assuming he didn't suffer a setback with the finger Monday, McDaniels should face no restrictions Tuesday if he's cleared to play.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Cleared for action

    McDaniels (finger) will play Monday versus the Clippers, Alan Horton of the Timberwolves Radio Network reports.

    McDaniels exited Thursday's game after spraining his left index finger, but the injury will not cost him any games. McDaniels is a critical addition to the Timberwolves' lineup as Minnesota attempts to slow down Kawhi Leonard and Paul George.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Questionable for Monday

    McDaniels (finger) is listed as questionable ahead of Monday's game against the Clippers.

    McDaniels left Thursday's game against the Bucks early due to a left index finger sprain that now has his status for Monday's game in question. If he is unable to go, Kyle Anderson and Nickeil Alexander-Walker are likely candidates to get extra minutes.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Suffers finger sprain

    McDaniels suffered a left index finger sprain during Thursday's 129-105 win over the Bucks and wasn't able to return. He finished with eight points (3-5 FG, 2-4 3Pt), three rebounds and two blocks in 19 minutes.

    The severity of the injury isn't known, but the good news for Minnesota is that they are off until Monday's game against the Clippers. If McDaniels is unable to play Monday, Minnesota could turn to Kyle Anderson and Naz Reid to soak up some additional minutes at forward.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Held in check

    McDaniels finished Sunday's 111-90 victory over the Rockets with five points (2-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt), four rebounds, two assists and one block across 29 minutes.

    McDaniels' streak of scoring in double figures ended at three, as he couldn't generate much offensively Sunday. He hasn't lived up to the offseason hype in fantasy basketball, as he's sitting outside the top-150 in nine-category formats due to muted production across the board. In 40 appearances, the forward holds averages of 10.8 points, 2.7 rebounds, 1.4 assists, 1.3 three-pointers, 0.9 steals and 0.5 blocks.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: On-brand scoring in win

    McDaniels contributed 14 points (6-11 FG, 2-5 3Pt), three rebounds, one assist and one steal in 31 minutes during Monday's 107-101 win over Oklahoma City.

    McDaniels is averaging 11.5 points, 3.3 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.2 steals on 50.4 percent shooting across his last 15 games. He fell in line with those averages Monday, while playing critical defense on Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Jalen Williams (ankle) -- who grade as two of the most efficient scorers in the league this season.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Season-high 23 points in victory

    McDaniels supplied 23 points (8-11 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), two rebounds and one steal in 30 minutes during Wednesday's 124-117 victory over Detroit.

    McDaniels connected on a trio of threes while finishing as one of three Timberwolves with 20 or more points and ending with a season-high scoring mark in a winning effort. McDaniels has surpassed the 20-point mark in four games this year, connecting on three or more threes in three of those four outings.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Scores 11 points in loss

    McDaniels closed Wednesday's 117-106 loss to the Pelicans with 11 points (5-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt), two assists, one block and two steals over 33 minutes.

    McDaniels' final stat line was not impressive, but he was one of the few players who managed to score in double digits in a game where the Timberwolves struggled badly on the offensive end. He should remain relevant in fantasy due to his starting role on one of the best teams in the Western Conference, but he's also very inconsistent on a game-to-game basis, mainly due to the nature of his secondary role in an offense led by Anthony Edwards and Karl-Anthony Towns.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Turns in 20 points

    McDaniels contributed 20 points (8-16 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five rebounds, one assist, one block and four steals over 41 minutes during Saturday's 110-98 victory over the Kings.

    McDaniels logged 41 minutes during Saturday's win, marking his second-highest usage of the season. The slight increase was likely due to Karl-Anthony Towns' (knee) absence, but McDaniels has held steady over the past week with a three-game string of 20-plus point totals. McDaniels' secondary numbers are nothing to write home about, and his fantasy impact is contingent on a high shot volume.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Strong first half in 20-point game

    McDaniels closed with 21 points (8-12 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 3-5 FT), three rebounds and one steal in 38 minutes during Wednesday's 127-113 loss to the 76ers.

    McDaniels was one of three Timberwolves players with 20 or more points while posting a season-high scoring mark in a losing effort. McDaniels, who recorded a career-best 19 points in the the first half alone, has surpassed the 20-point mark in two games this year, his first since recording a previous season high of 20 points Nov. 6 against Boston.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Suiting up Monday

    McDaniels (tailbone) will play Monday against Miami, Alan Horton of the Timberwolves Radio Network reports.

    McDaniels is active Monday after suffering a lower spine/tailbone bruise in Saturday's win over the Pacers. Playing on normal rest is a good sign for the 23-year-old, but there's a chance he isn't 100 percent after moving gingerly following the incident Saturday.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Listed as questionable

    McDaniels is questionable for Monday's game against the Heat due to a sacral contusion, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    McDaniels left Saturday's game against the Pacers after just 18 minutes due to the injury. If McDaniels is sidelined, Kyle Anderson, Troy Brown and Nickeil Alexander-Walker would be candidates for increased roles.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Will not return Saturday

    McDaniels will not return to Saturday's game against the Pacers due to a tailbone bruise. He finished with five points (2-4 FG, 1-1 3Pt), one rebound and one steal in 18 minutes.

    McDaniels was uncomfortable on the court and wasn't moving around well. Presumably, he'll be day-to-day going forward with his status in the air for Monday's game against Miami. If McDaniels misses time, the Timberwolves will likely rely on Kyle Anderson, Troy Brown and Nickeil Alexander-Walker.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Available against Dallas

    McDaniels (ankle) is available for Thursday's game against the Mavericks.

    Minnesota will be thrilled to have both Anthony Edwards (hip) and McDaniels (ankle) back in action Thursday. McDaniels has missed the past eight games for the Timberwolves, so there's a good chance he'll have some restrictions. With Minnesota getting healthier, the fantasy value of Troy Brown and Nickeil Alexander-Walker is likely to trend down.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Iffy against Dallas

    McDaniels (ankle) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game versus the Mavericks.

    McDaniels returned to action Tuesday after missing the previous eight games with an ankle injury but is in danger of missing Thursday's contest. Troy Brown and Nickeil Alexander-Walker will likely receive extended minutes if McDaniels is ultimately ruled out.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Reaches double figures in return

    McDaniels provided 12 points (5-12 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 0-1 FT) and three rebounds over 27 minutes during Monday's 121-107 loss to the Pelicans.

    McDaniels returned after missing the last eight games with an ankle injury, ending as one of five Timberwolves with a double-digit point total while leading all bench players in minutes played in the defeat. McDaniels has tallied 10 or more points in eight contests this season as he continues to work his way back into the rotation following his injury absence.
