Okogie is out for Friday's summer league game due to a sprained right pinky finger.
The 20th pick in this year's draft, Okogie will get Friday off, as there's little reason to push through the injury considering it's summer league. Across four contests, he's averaged 11.0 points, 5.3 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 2.3 steals and 2.0 blocks across 32.6 minutes.
Okogie posted 11 points (4-13 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 2-3 FT), five rebounds, four assists and three steals across 32 minutes in Monday's 78-69 win over the Nets in a Vegas Summer League contest.
After being selected as the 20th overall pick in the NBA Draft, the former Georgia Tech point guard has put up some decent stat lines so far in the Summer League, but a lingering hip injury has slowed him somewhat. As a result, second-rounder Keita Bates-Diop has looked a bit more polished and more in tune with the offense. One of these guards may end up in the G-League this coming season, and even though Okogie has struggled, he still has the inside track to snag a spot with the first team.
Okogie drew the start in Sunday's 103-92 summer league win over the Raptors, posting 16 points (5-15 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 5-5 FT), four rebounds, one assist, two steals and a block across 34 minutes.
Okogie got out-played by Timberwolves' second-round pick Keita Bates-Diop, but was still a key factor in helping secure the victory. The 19-year-old shooting guard struggled with his shot, hitting just 33.3 percent of his field goal attempts and 20 percent of his deep balls. However, Okogie was able to get to the free-throw line fairly consistently, which still helped him finish in double figures on the night. Considering Okogie tied for a team-high of 15 shot attempts, he should be a main source of offense for the Timberwolves' summer league roster through the rest of the schedule.
Okogie (hip) supplied 10 points (2-10 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 5-8 FT), seven rebounds, four assists, three blocks and two steals across 33 minutes during the Timberwolves' 70-69 loss to the Nuggets in a Las Vegas Summer League contest Friday.
Okogie was far from smooth with his shot Friday, but he helped prop up his final numbers with a decent showing from the free-throw line and strong work across the rest of the stat sheet. The 2018 first-round pick boasts an impressive all-around skill set, and summer league play should give him an opportunity to work out the kinks in his shot that were on display Friday. Okogie is projected to play either shooting guard or small forward at the NBA level, and although the Timberwolves currently boast Jimmy Butler and Andrew Wiggins as the respective starters at those positions, Okogie would figure to have a chance to carve out some playing time at both spots during his rookie campaign.
