Timberwolves' Gorgui Dieng: Finishes the season in style
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dieng amassed 18 points (8-20 FG, 2-4 3Pt), 11 rebounds, three steals, and two assists in 34 minutes during Wednesday's 99-95 loss to Denver.

Dieng stepped up for the second game in a row Wednesday, ending with 18 points and 11 rebounds in 34 minutes. His last two efforts certainly demonstrate his ability to have fantasy value when afforded the playing time. Unfortunately for him, that seems unlikely as long as he is playing behind Karl-Anthony Towns. If he manages to somehow change teams, his role could become more prominent and therefore also increase his overall value.

Timberwolves' Gorgui Dieng: Steps up in place of Towns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dieng started at center and supplied 16 points (5-9 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 5-6 FT), seven rebounds, five assists, one steal and one block across 29 minutes Tuesday in the Timberwolves' 120-100 loss to the Raptors.

With Karl-Anthony Towns (knee) and Taj Gibson (calf) both sitting out, Dieng entered the starting five for the first time all season and turned in a well-rounded line to pay dividends for those that rolled with him in DFS. The 29-year-old has been trending upward of late with averages of 14.0 points, 5.1 boards and 2.1 assists in 19.7 minutes per game over his last seven outings. He'll make for an excellent streaming option again in Wednesday's season finale in Denver in the event Towns and Gibson are once again sidelined.

Timberwolves' Gorgui Dieng: Starting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dieng will start Tuesday's contest against the Raptors, Danny Cunningham of 1500 ESPN Twin Cities reports.

Dieng will make his first start of the year with Karl-Anthony Towns (knee) out. Dieng has seen 20-plus minutes on 10 occasions, averaging 9.9 points, 5.5 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.4 blocks and 1.4 steals in those contests.

Timberwolves' Gorgui Dieng: Scores 18 in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dieng totaled 18 points (7-8 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 3-4 FT), four rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block over 16 minutes in the Timberwolves' loss to the Trail Blazers on Monday.

Dieng went off for 18 points in just 16 minutes played, adding four boards and two dimes to a solid final stat line. He's been largely ineffective in his limited role off the bench this season, but he's stepped up his production over his last three games in large part due to Taj Gibson (calf) being sidelined. In those contests, Dieng has averaged 15.0 points, 5.7 rebounds, 1.3 steals and 1.0 assists in 18 minutes. Dieng still can't be trusted outside of deep leagues.

Timberwolves' Gorgui Dieng: Leads bench in scoring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dieng furnished 13 points (6-8 FG, 1-1 3Pt), three rebounds and one steal across 16 minutes in the Timberwolves' 118-109 loss to the 76ers on Saturday.

Dieng continues to see a slight bump in opportunity during the ongoing absence of Taj Gibson (calf). The veteran big man now has back-to-back double-digit scoring efforts for the first time since the first three games of the season and has accomplished the feat in three of his last five games overall.
