Okogie had six points (2-7 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five steals, and two assists in 22 minutes during Friday's 111-109 win over the Heat.
Okogie finished with a career high in steals despite playing less than half the game. The 20-year-old rookie continues to put forth admirable effort on the defensive end, but his inefficient and inconsistent offense limits his value to deeper formats.
Okogie contributed 21 points (6-11 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 6-8 FT), five rebounds, four steals, and one assist in 41 minutes during Friday's 131-130 overtime win against the Warriors.
Okogie matched his career high scoring total, posting 21 points for the third time this season and the second time across the last six games. Moreover, Okogie has reached double figures in scoring in five of the last six contests. He also matched his career high in steals in this one, as he delivered one of his top performances against the two-time defending champions.
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.
