Okogie collected 17 points (5-11 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 6-6 FT), six rebounds, four assists, one steal, and one block in 33 minutes during Saturday's 112-99 win over the Grizzlies.
Okogie filled up the stat sheet while earning at least 30 minutes and reaching double figures in scoring for the fourth straight game. With the Timberwolves dealing with a laundry list of injuries (Robert Covington, Derrick Rose, Jeff Teague all out for the rest of the season, Luol Deng and Taj Gibson listed as day-to-day), Okogie is likely to continue receiving a lot of playing time across the last nine games of his rookie campaign.
As expected, Okogie drew another start on Tuesday and played heavy minutes. He's now averaged 20 points per game over his last two contests and will look to continue building momentum on Thursday at Charlotte.
Okogie tallied 21 points (8-14 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 2-4 FT), five rebounds, three assists, and one steal in 35 minutes during Sunday's 117-102 loss to Houston.
Okogie matched his career-high with 21 points on 8-of-14 shooting in Sunday's loss. To put this in context, Okogie had scored a total of 21 points over his past seven games. This would appear to be an outlier for the rookie, however, he is going to get plenty of opportunity moving forward. The Timberwolves are now basically out of playoff contention meaning Robert Covington (knee) could be shut down for the remainder of the season. If that is the case, Okogie would likely remain in the starting lineup but is typically more of a steals streamer in 12-team leagues.
Okogie had just two points, two rebounds, two assists, one steal, and one block in 16 minutes during Sunday's 135-121 loss to Washington.
Okogie found himself in early foul trouble and was never able to work himself into the game. Okogie has shown flashes during his time as the starter, however, Robert Covington (ankle) appears close to returning. This will likely see Okogie head back to the bench, nullifying any value he has right now.
Okogie registered 15 points (4-9 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 5-6 FT), four rebounds, two steals and one block across 33 minutes in Wednesday's 131-123 overtime loss to the Hawks.
Okogie has earned his stay in the starting rotation, complimenting the others around him well and being efficient with his touches. That being said, Okogie has attempted double-digit field goals in just two of his last 10 games, which should cause fans to temper expectations of his role in the offense. Okogie is still figuring out the nuances of The League, but has developed nicely so far, so much so that he's locked in a consistent starting job.
