Timberwolves' Josh Okogie: Plays well in spot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okogie had 11 points (3-8 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 4-5 FT), five rebounds, three assists, and two steals in 23 minutes during Friday's 143-121 preseason loss to the Bucks.

Okogie was given the nod as the starter, replacing Andrew Wiggins who was away from the team for personal reasons. In 23 minutes, Okogie was able to contribute in a number of areas and was one of the bright spots on an otherwise ordinary night for the Wolves. He is in a position to provide some nice energy off the bench should coach Tom Thibodeau give him the opportunity. His value lies purely in deeper formats at this stage but there is some nice dynasty upside there.

Timberwolves' Josh Okogie: Starting Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okogie will get the start at small forward for Friday's preseason finale versus the Bucks.

Okogie will start along side Jeff Teague, Derrick Rose, Taj Gibson, and Karl-Anthony Towns. He started for rose in the Timberwolves' previous game, but is filling in for Andrew Wiggins (personal) Friday. He is just expected to be an energy guy playing limited minutes off the bench once the season tips off.

Timberwolves' Josh Okogie: Struggles with shot in Sunday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okogie had four points (1-7 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-3 FT), eight rebounds, three assists, one steal, and one block in 25 minutes during Sunday's 125-107 preseason loss to the Bucks.

Okogie moved into the starting lineup with Derrick Rose given the night off. He played 25 minutes and while he did struggle from the field, he was able to contribute across the board in an otherwise solid performance. He is an energy guy and if afforded the opportunity, could provide a nice spark off the bench for the Wolves. The Jimmy Butler situation is no closer to being resolved and given coach Tom Thibodeau's apparent lack of confidence in anyone outside of the starters, Okogie is more of a wait-and-see guy right now.

Timberwolves' Josh Okogie: Starting in Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okogie will start at shooting guard in Sunday's preseason game against the Bucks, Alan Horton of the Timberwolves Radio Network reports.

With Derrick Rose getting the night off to rest, the rookie Okogie will get the start in the backcourt alongside Jeff Teague. Okogie played 22 minutes in Wednesday's preseason outing against the Clippers, and he should be in line to take on even more minutes Sunday night.

Timberwolves' Josh Okogie: Records three blocks in Wednesday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okogie offered eight points (1-3 FG, 6-6 FT), three blocks, two rebounds, and one assist in 22 minutes during Wednesday's 128-101 loss to the Clippers.

Okogie has been solid through two preseason games, as the rookie posted 10 points (3-5 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 3-5 FT), five rebounds, and one steal in 20 minutes in his debut versus the Warriors. Coach Tom Thibodeau typically doesn't trust young players to take on big roles, and that could be the case for Okogie as well. With that being said, if he keeps up this level of play, the team's lack of depth along the wing could help solidify Okogie's inclusion in the regular rotation.
