Timberwolves' Taj Gibson: Agrees to two-year contract with Timberwolves
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson has agreed to terms on a two-year, $28 million contract with the Timberwolves, Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reports.

Gibson gets a raise, while also joining the Timberwolves on a relatively cap friendly deal, so it worked out nicely for both sides here. He's coming off season split between the Bulls and Thunder, with combined averages of 10.8 points and 6.2 rebounds across 78 games. In joining the Timberwolves, Gibson should be a veteran mentor to the young and upcoming bigs Gorgui Dieng and Karl-Anthony Towns, while also providing a capable scorer and defender in the post. That said, with Minnesota likely to give as much run as possible to their youngsters, Gibson's value may take a hit.

Thunder's Taj Gibson: Goes for 20 points in Friday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson contributed 20 points (10-13 FG), two rebounds and one assist across 29 minutes during a 115-113 win over the Rockets on Friday.

Gibson had by far his best game of the series as his 20 points exceeded his combined total of 13 points through the first two games. After receiving 21 minutes in the first two games, he saw a slightly larger workload in Game 3. Based on the team's success in the win, it would not be a surprise if Gibson received a similar workload in Game 4.

Thunder's Taj Gibson: Resting Tuesday vs. Wolves
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson will be rested for Tuesday's game against the Timberwolves, Kent Youngblood of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

With a playoff spot locked up, the Thunder will rest Gibson, Andre Roberson and Russell Westbrook on Tuesday. It's the first night of a back-to-back set to end the season, and at this point it's unclear whether the trio will be available for the finale Wednesday night against Denver. Expect Jerami Grant and Enes Kanter to pick up extra minutes in Gibson's place Tuesday.

Thunder's Taj Gibson: Will play, start Sunday vs. Hornets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson (illness) will play and start in Sunday's game against the Hornets, Royce Young of ESPN.com reports.

Gibson was held out of Friday's game against the Spurs because of an illness, but was never expected to miss much time and has officially been cleared for a return to the court. He'll rejoin the starting five at power forward and should see a full complement of minutes, which also sends Domantas Sabonis back to the bench in the corresponding move.

Thunder's Taj Gibson: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson (illness) is considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Hornets, Royce Young of ESPN.com reports.

Gibson was unable to play during Friday's loss to the Spurs due to an illness, but he returned to practice Saturday with hopes of suiting up against Charlotte on Sunday. Domantas Sabonis earned the start Friday with Gibson sidelined, so Sabonis could continue seeing an expanded role if Gibson remains out throughout the remainder of the weekend.
