Timberwolves' Taj Gibson: Season-high point total in comeback win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson went for 28 points (11-16 FG, 6-6 FT), seven rebounds, one assist, two blocks and one steal across 39 minutes in Thursday's 119-111 win over the Lakers.

Gibson and former Bulls teammate Jimmy Butler led a fourth-quarter charge that saw Minnesota score 35 points during the period to secure the comeback victory. The nine-year veteran heads into the All-Star break having posted four straight double-digit scoring efforts, as well as 12 over his last 14 games. He's been a consistent presence on the boards throughout the season as well, sporting the second-highest rebound total (7.3) of his career. Coupled with his career-best shooting percentage (57.5), Gibson's fantasy value projects to remain rock-solid across all formats as the Timberwolves push towards the postseason during the balance of the regular season.

Timberwolves' Taj Gibson: Scores 12 points in Tuesday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson registered 12 points (5-8 FG, 2-2 FT) and five rebounds in 34 minutes during Tuesday's 126-108 loss to the Rockets.

Gibson chipped in with a modest line, and he was the lone starter to take less than 13 field-goal attempts. The veteran continues to hold down the fort as the team's starting power forward alongside Karl-Anthony Towns, doing the thankless dirty work that has helped him earn the trust of coach Tom Thibodeau. With the Timberwolves typically going with tight rotations, the minutes are usually there for Gibson to make a decent statistical impact.

Timberwolves' Taj Gibson: Solid complementary effort in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson collected nine points (4-7 FG, 1-1 FT), six rebounds and two blocks across 33 minutes in Thursday's 108-89 win over the Bucks.

With teammates Jimmy Butler and Karl-Anthony Towns combining for 28 shot attempts and 52 points, Gibson didn't need to do too much scoring-wise. He was efficient with the shots he did take, although his modest usage led to the end of his seven-game streak of double-digit point totals. Despite the slight downturn, the veteran forward has been a pleasant surprise on the offensive end for fantasy owners, as he came into Thursday's contest with a career-best 57.2 percent success rate from the field and the second-highest scoring average (12.2) of his nine seasons.

Timberwolves' Taj Gibson: Scores 17 in Monday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson scored 17 points (8-12 FG, 1-2 FT) while adding four rebounds, four steals, two assists and a block in 34 minutes during Monday's 105-100 loss to the Hawks.

While his rebounding remains hit or miss, Gibson has now scored in double digits in six straight games and 12 of 16 in January thanks to his ability to work the offensive glass and convert put-backs, giving him solid consistency for a player who is at best the fourth option in the Minnesota offense.

Timberwolves' Taj Gibson: Double-double in Thursday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson scored 12 points (6-13 FG) while adding 10 rebounds, an assist, a steal and a block in 34 minutes during Thursday's 126-113 loss to the Warriors.

It's his 14th double-double of the season -- four short of his career high -- but just his second in the last 21 games. Gibson remains a secondary element in the T-wolves' offense, even with Jimmy Butler (knee) sidelined, but he's at least been a consistent one, scoring in double digits in 16 of those 21 games.
