Hernangomez (quad) is questionable for Sunday's game against Orlando.
Hernangomez is in danger of missing his first game since early March due to a left quad bruise. Across the last five games, he's averaged 12.8 points on 42.3 percent shooting, 5.0 rebounds and 2.4 triples per game.
Hernangomez registered 22 points (8-12 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 3-8 FT), seven rebounds, two blocks and one assists in 28 minutes during Tuesday's 114-107 win over the Rockets.
The 25-year-old's 28 minutes were the most he's played since March 24. Hernangomez was on fire tonight, making 8-of-12 shots on his way to delivering his first 20-point game since Jan. 5. Before Tuesday's game, the fifth-year forward was only averaging 8.2 points, 2.4 rebounds and 1.0 three-pointers with little else in 18.2 minutes over his last five games, so fantasy managers should take a wait-and-see approach before adding the inconsistent big man.
Hernangomez totaled 14 points (4-5 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 4-5 FT), one rebound and one steal in a 105-104 victory over the Jazz on Monday.
Hernangomez was very efficient with his opportunities on offense, scoring in double figures for the second time in his last three games. Over that stretch, the forward has averaged 11.3 points on 57.1 percent shooting from the field and 41.7 percent shooting from three. Hernangomez doesn't see enough opportunities to make an impact in most fantasy leagues.
Hernangomez had 16 points (6-10 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT), two rebounds and one steal in 19 minutes during Wednesday's 128-125 loss to the Kings.
Hernangomez provided a nice offensive boost off the bench for the Timberwolves but failed to produce anywhere else. At this point, Hernangomez is basically completely reliant on his shot falling to be able to stay on the court. Despite another double-digit performance, he is not a player to target outside of the deepest formats.
Hernangomez posted 18 points (5-6 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 5-6 FT), two rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in Wednesday's 130-105 loss to Milwaukee.
Hernangomez was one of the few Timberwolves who helped prevent the game from being even more of a blowout, as he was efficient in his 22 minutes off the bench. The Spanish forward's workload has ebbed and flowed throughout the season, but when Karl-Anthony Towns (personal) is in the lineup, he's usually not fantasy relevant.
Hernangomez played 26 minutes off the bench and contributed 17 points (5-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 6-8 FT), nine rebounds, one assist and one steal in Monday's victory over the Kings.
Hernangomez had been struggling mightily over his previous five games, scoring a combined 15 points on 4-of-15 shooting while playing just 47 total minutes. Each time Hernangomez has scored in double figures this season, he's also added at least five rebounds. The problem is that he's only hit that mark seven times in 32 games this season, and his playing time can be difficult to predict. He appears locked into a spot on the second unit for now, but he had played single-digit minutes behind starting power forward Jaden McDaniels in three of the previous four games.
Hernangomez finished with 19 points (7-10 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT), nine rebounds, two steals and one block in 28 minutes during Friday's 107-101 victory over the Rockets.
Hernangomez was excellent in Friday's come-from-behind victory, turning in what could very well be his best game of the season. While this was a night to remember, the Timberwolves will be getting both D'Angelo Russell (knee) and Malik Beasley (suspension) back in the near future and that alone will take opportunities away from Hernangomez.
Hernangomez scored 17 points (5-9 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 5-7 FT) with five rebounds and one assist in a 128-108 loss to the Mavericks on Wednesday.
The forward played a season-high 35 minutes and capitalized on his offensive opportunities, scoring in double figures for just the fifth time this season. Hernangomez doesn't get enough playing time to be considered in most fantasy leagues, but he's been a solid bench option for Minnesota. He's averaged 8.4 points and 4.3 rebounds in 22.3 minutes over his last seven games.
Hernangomez provided 14 points (5-11 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 2-4 FT), five rebounds and two steals across 22 minutes in Thursday's 123-119 win over the Suns.
The Timberwolves have many issues to resolve, but the biggest one is deciding on a suitable partner for Karl-Anthony Towns in the frontcourt. Jarred Vanderbilt is young and still has a lot to learn, and Naz Reid lacks mobility and is mostly around to spell Towns. Hernangomez is an adequate defender and has floor-stretching ability with his mid-range jumper, so it's possible that he could emerge as the more effective option. Vanderbilt and Jaden McDaniels represent the future, and they will get every opportunity to succeed, but it's a situation to monitor as the Timberwolves gain some confidence after the upset win.
Hernangomez tallied five points (2-5 FG, 1-3 3Pt), three rebounds, an assist and a steal in Tuesday's loss to the Lakers.
Hernangomez has been an afterthought in fantasy circles this season, but he's taken on an increased role of late, seeing 22.0 minutes per game off the bench over Minnesota's last three contests. It will be interesting to see whether the trend continues, but either way, Hernangomez is unlikely to be a difference-maker for fantasy managers down the stretch.
Hernangomez (conditioning) made a nine-minute cameo off the bench in Monday's 127-122 loss to the Mavericks, supplying five points (1-3 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-4 FT), four rebounds and one assist.
Hernangomez didn't check into the game until the start of the fourth quarter, when the Timberwolves were trailing by 18. He helped Minnesota trim the deficit to 11 before checking out of the contest with 3:24 remaining, as head coach Ryan Saunders opted to use Anthony Edwards as the power forward in the team's closing lineup. The appearance was Hernangomez's first since Jan. 13, ending a streak of 12 straight absences while he navigated the health and safety protocol and worked to regain conditioning. Considering Hernangomez had been available off the bench for the past few games only to go unused, he looks like he'll remain outside of Saunders' rotation in competitive contests for the time being.

Hernangomez (conditioning) was active for Saturday's 120-118 loss to the Thunder, but he went unused off the bench.
Hernangomez has suited up on a few occasions since he cleared COVID-19 health and safety protocols earlier this month, but head coach Ryan Saunders has not yet been willing to include the forward in the rotation. Considering he averaged 20.3 minutes per game in 11 appearances prior to being shut down, Hernangomez should eventually have a role for Minnesota, though he could be ticketed for less playing time.
Hernangomez (conditioning) is questionable for Saturday's game against the Thunder.
Hernangomez was cleared to play in Friday's contest but didn't take the floor, so his appearance on the injury report is somewhat surprising. The forward will likely be a game-time call Saturday versus the Thunder.
Hernangomez (conditioning) has been cleared to play Friday against the Thunder.
Hernangomez hasn't played since Jan. 13 due to COVID-19 protocols and, subsequently, conditioning concerns. In five appearances off the bench this season, he's averaged 2.6 points and 3.2 rebounds in 12.4 minutes.
Hernangomez (conditioning) is questionable for Friday's game against the Thunder.
Hernangomez was also questionable for Wednesday's game, but he didn't end up seeing the floor. If he plays Friday, there's a chance he'll be on a minutes limit.
