Wiggins scored 12 points (4-14 FG, 4-6 FT) and totaled four rebounds along with a block and two steals over 27 minutes Tuesday against Philadelphia.
Wiggins finished well below his season scoring average, as he was held to just 12 points on 28.6 percent shooting from the field. Although his point total was certainly disappointing Tuesday night, he managed to make up for it by submitting a well-rounded final line. The 23-year-old is averaging 23.0 points, 6.4 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.0 block and 1.0 steal over his previous five contests and figures to bounce back Friday against San Antonio.
Wiggins scored a season-high 40 points (11-24 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 16-18 FT) while adding 10 rebounds, four assists, a steal and a block in 38 minutes during Tuesday's 119-117 win over the Thunder.
The 23-year-old had been having his worst season since he was a rookie in the system of recently fired head coach Tom Thibodeau, so it's perhaps not a surprise that Wiggins absolutely erupted in his first game under interim coach Ryan Saunders. It remains to be seen whether the inconsistent Wiggins can keep up a productive pace, though, particularly once Derrick Rose (ankle) is back in the lineup and competing for minutes at the two.
While Wiggins delivered one of his better performances of the season, those that deployed him in daily lineups were probably hoping for an even bigger stat line after he erupted for 25 points in the first half. He struggled to keep up the scoring pace out of the break, but the Timberwolves still cruised to a comfortable victory. Wiggins has stepped up on offense of late with 21.0 points and 3.0 assists in 37.6 minutes per game over the last eight outings -- all of which exceed his season-long averages -- but his outputs may dip when Derrick Rose (ankle) likely returns to action Friday against Dallas.
Wiggins went off for 31 points (10-18 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 9-12 FT), three assists, and two rebounds in 43 minutes during Wednesday's 115-102 loss to the Celtics.
Wiggins finished with a season high scoring total, stepping up offensively with Robert Covington, Jeff Teague, and Derrick Rose all sidelined by ankle injuries. It's unclear how much longer those three will be held out, but Wiggins could continue to enjoy a short-term boost in usage and production over the coming weekend.
Wiggins accrued 13 points (5-16 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds, four assists and a steal across 36 minutes Sunday against the Heat.
Wiggins continues to rack up points, posting double-digit scoring outputs in each of his last 16 games while also adding significant value on the boards. He's averaging 18.9 points per contest through 14 games in December along with 4.8 rebounds and 2.0 assists. Despite his recent shooting woes (33.3 percent from the field in his previous three games), Wiggins is certainly a must-start in most if not all fantasy leagues.
