Wiggins has committed to play for Team Canada at the 2019 FIBA World Cup in China, Arash Madani of Sportsnet reports.
While Wiggins has been somewhat of a disappointment at the NBA level, he remains one of the top Canadian players in the league, and his presence on the roster should provide a major boost as Team Canada attempts to qualify for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. Wiggins closed the 2018-19 season -- his fifth in the NBA -- with averages of 18.1 points, 4.8 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.0 steals per game.
Wiggins tallied 25 points (11-20 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 0-1 FT), five rebounds, and four assists in 36 minutes during Wednesday's 99-95 loss to Denver.
Wiggins paced the Timberwolves with 25 points in Wednesday's loss, bringing to an end what was a disappointing season for both himself and the team. He continues to be one of the more frustrating players across all fantasy formats, with his upside typically outweighed by his lack of effort on both ends of the floor. He continues to struggle from the free-throw line and outside of a few random performances, his defense in basically non-existent.
Wiggins compiled 24 points (9-15 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 3-5 FT), five rebounds, four assists and two steals over 34 minutes Sunday against the Thunder.
Wiggins shot an impressive 60 percent from the field on a night when the Timberwolves would score 126 points, although it wouldn't be enough to overcome the Thunder's explosive offense. The Kansas product's scoring contributions have remained steady down the stretch of the regular season, averaging 20.4 points in his previous 10 contests.
Wiggins totaled 21 points (7-18 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 6-6 FT), seven rebounds, four assists and a steal over 34 minutes in the Timberwolves' loss to the Trail Blazers on Monday.
Wiggins led the Timberwolves in scoring in Monday's loss, finishing with his seventh consecutive 20-point game. In those seven games, Wiggins has averaged a respectable 21.9 points, 6.0 rebounds and 3.4 assists. Fantasy owners should continue to employ Wiggins in the midst of a hot streak on offense.
Wiggins supplied 24 points (9-18 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), six rebounds, five assists and two blocks across 36 minutes in the Timberwolves' 118-109 loss to the 76ers on Saturday.
Wiggins checked in as the top scorer for the T-Wolves on the night, extending his recent hot stretch of play. The 2014 first overall pick has scored 20 points or more in six straight games, shooting at least 50.0 percent in three of them. Efficiency on offense has been an issue all season for Wiggins, but he's finishing up the campaign on a better note after having generated a respectable 45.6 percent success rate in March, including 34.6 percent from three-point range.
Wiggins totaled 22 points (9-21 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-5 FT), thee rebounds, three assists and two steals over 35 minutes in the Timberwolves' loss to the Clippers on Tuesday.
Wiggins turned out his fourth consecutive 20-point scoring night, adding some good counting stats to boost his final stat line. He continues to shoot poorly, but the points keep coming, efficient or not. Averaging 37.3 minutes per game over his last four, Wiggins will continue to see big-time usage in the final few weeks of the NBA season.
Wiggins finished with 20 points (8-15 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-7 FT), five rebounds, two assists and a steal over 38 minutes in the Timberwolves' loss to the Hornets on Thursday.
Wiggins finished just one off of the team-lead in scoring behind Karl-Anthony Towns in Thursday's loss. Wiggins is averaging his fewest points per game (17.5) since his 2014 rookie season due mainly to the worst shooting mark of his career (39.8 percent). Still, he has a great opportunity for increased production. With injuries piling up in the Minnesota backcourt, Wiggins' role on offense should be extensive down the stretch.
Wiggins finished with 20 points (8-19 FG, 1-8 3Pt, 3-4 FT), eight rebounds, six assists and a steal over 41 minutes in the Timberwolves' loss to the Warriors on Tuesday.
Wiggins had a big game on Tuesday, despite losing to the Warriors. He stuffed the stat sheet with solid contributions in scoring, rebounding and assists. The former Jayhawk has seen his scoring average and field goal percentage decline for three straight years, and though Wiggins is a serviceable fantasy option, he's proven that he wasn't worth the huge five-year extension the Timberwolves signed him to in 2017.
Wiggins had 14 points (6-17 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-3 FT), three rebounds, and one block in 30 minutes during Thursday's 120-100 loss to the Jazz.
Wiggins was dreadful in his return from a three-game absence with a thigh injury. He's posting his lowest scoring average since his rookie campaign, and he's connecting on a career-low 39.9 percent from the field. It's been another disappointing season for the 24-year-old wing, but he is at least managing career-high averages in rebounding, assists, threes, and blocks.
