Timberwolves' Gorgui Dieng: Scores 11 points in Sunday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dieng totaled 11 points (5-9 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), and seven rebounds in 19 minutes during Sunday's 125-107 preseason loss to the Bucks.

Dieng is in one of the more frustrating fantasy position of any player in the league. As a guy who has top 50 upside, his role on the team over the course of the 2017-18 season was one of bewilderment. Talks are that the Timberwolves are looking to offload his contract as part of the Jimmy Butler deal but so far a deal has not been reached. If he manages to land in a favorable spot he could certainly return to the player he was only two seasons ago. At this stage, however, he has no standard league value and is only worth a look in deeper formats in the hope the winds of change strike lucky for the big man from Senegal.

Timberwolves' Gorgui Dieng: Leads team with eight boards in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dieng contributed six points (3-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt), eight rebounds, two steals, two blocked shots and an assist over 19 minutes in Saturday's 114-110 preseason win over the Warriors.

Dieng will serve as the Wolves' center in the second unit behind Karl-Anthony Towns. It's unlikely that you'll see Dieng out-rebound the rest of the team as he did on Friday, and at the moment he holds minimal fantasy value.

Timberwolves' Gorgui Dieng: Plays well off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dieng recorded six points (3-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt), three rebounds, one assist and one steal during Thursday's 100-96 loss to the Nuggets.

Despite seeing just 15 minutes of action, Dieng played well off the bench and contributed with tallies in many statistical categories. The former Louisville Cardinal is adding 5.9 points and 4.5 rebounds this season, which are both drastically declines from 10.0 points and 7.9 rebounds per game last year.

Timberwolves' Gorgui Dieng: Double-doubles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dieng had 15 points (6-12 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 11 rebounds, two blocks, one assist and one steal in 26 minutes during Saturday's 120-108 loss to the 76ers.

Dieng, along with the other bench players, saw some additional playing time Saturday. The first unit was blown out resulting in the second unit playing basically the entire fourth quarter. Dieng has shown previously what he can do when he is given a decent amount of playing time so this production comes as no surprise. Owners would need to see this again before running to grab him off the waivers.

Timberwolves' Gorgui Dieng: Leads bench in Monday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dieng accounted for 10 points (3-7 FG, 4-4 FT) and six rebounds across 22 minutes in Monday's 118-100 win over the Kings.

Dieng's scoring and rebounding totals both paced the second unit, and the former tally equaled his best in 10 February contests. The fifth-year big man has particularly been a steady force on the glass during the current month, hauling in at least five boards in six contests despite averaging a modest 15.7 minutes. While his limited playing time significantly caps his overall fantasy value, Dieng retains some appeal for those in very deep formats needing a bit of scoring and rebounding help at the end of their roster.
