Okogie's (lower leg) status for Monday's Las Vegas Summer League title game is unclear, Darren Wolfson of Skor North reports.
Okogie departed Saturday's game with a bruise on his left shin, and while he's considered "fine" by team officials, the Wolves may still opt to sit him out in what's ultimately a meaningless contest.
Okogie won't return to Saturday's summer league game due to a left lower leg contusion.
Okogie sustained the injury at some point during the first half and the severity of the issue remains unclear. Jared Terrell started the second half in his absence for the Timberwolves.
Okogie finished with 11 points (3-8 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT), four assists, two rebounds and one steal across 21 minutes during the Timberwolves' 90-87 win over the Heat in a Las Vegas Summer League game Wednesday.
Okogie is now averaging 12.5 points, 4.8 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.0 block across 22.3 minutes over four summer league games. However, his shot has been a disappointment overall, as the second-year guard has drained just 31.0 percent of his attempts in the desert. The 2018 first-round pick has a considerable NBA experience advantage on many of the players he's facing after logging 74 games in his rookie campaign, but the same issues that led to a 38.6 percent success rate from the floor last season seem to still be present thus far.
Okogie totaled 15 points (4-12 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 5-7 FT), seven rebounds and three blocks across 22 minutes in Sunday's 90-66 win over the Hawks in the Las Vegas Summer League.
Timberwolves fans and fantasy players alike are very familiar with Okogie, who served as an ample injury replacement in Minnesota's backcourt last season. Okogie is currently in the driver's seat for a starting role, but he'll face some competition from rookie Jarrett Culver and Keita Bates-Diop.
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.
Okogie produced 19 points (6-9 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 4-6 FT), four rebounds, three steals and an assist over 30 minutes in the Timberwolves' loss to the Warriors on Tuesday.
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.
Okogie generated 14 points (6-9 FG, 2-2 3Pt), two rebounds and one steal across 18 minutes in the Timberwolves' 140-128 loss to the Bucks on Saturday.
Despite his abbreviated time on the court, Okogie generated an impressive scoring tally with one of his most impressive shooting nights of the season. The 20-year-old has now seen minutes in the teens for three straight contests, but he's shot 46.7 percent or better in four of the last five games, leading to solid production relative to playing time. While still a secondary figure in terms of usage, the 2018 first-round pick retains value in deeper leagues and as a DFS punt play.
Okogie managed 16 points (7-15 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 0-2 FT), four assists, three rebounds, two steals, and one block in 32 minutes during Wednesday's 121-111 win over the Rockets.
Okogie was excellent on both ends, filling in well along the wing against a tough opponent and stepping up in the absence of Andrew Wiggins (illness) and Robert Covington (ankle). While Okogie has reached double figures in four of the last five tilts, he's likely to return to a reserve role once Wiggins and Covington are back. Still, it's not clear how much longer Covington will be out.
Okogie was limited to three points (1-10 FG, 1-6 3Pt), two rebounds, one assist and one steal across 30 minutes Sunday in the Timberwolves' 125-111 loss to the Jazz.
Okogie's shooting has been dismal since he erupted for 21 points in 25 minutes Jan. 22 in Phoenix. Over the past three games, Okogie has tallied 19 points combined while shooting 6-for-32 (18.8 percent) from the field. The rookie continues to see heavy run while all of Robert Covington (ankle), Derrick Rose (ankle), Jeff Teague (foot) and Tyus Jones (ankle) have missed time, but his erratic shooting has sapped most of his fantasy utility.
Okogie recorded 21 points (7-11 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 3-3 FT), five rebounds, two assists, and two steals in 25 minutes during Tuesday's 118-91 win over the Suns.
Okogie was exceptional, pouring in a career high scoring total and matching his career high in threes while reaching double figures for the fourth time in the last six tilts. Okogie has also swiped a steal in six straight games, and the rookie continues to make an impact even if his fantasy value remains limited to deeper leagues.
Okogie tallied four points (1-4 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), one rebound, one assist, one steal and one block over 11 minutes Sunday in the Timberwolves' 116-114 win over the Suns.
Okogie drew his ninth consecutive start Sunday, but his 11 minutes were his fewest since joining the Timberwolves' top unit. He ran into some foul trouble that ended up limited his playing time, but Okogie's use had been trending downward anyway following Derrick Rose's return from an ankle injury Jan. 11. The 20-year-old rookie doesn't warrant ownership in most leagues with 14 or fewer teams.
Okogie collected 17 points (6-14 FG, 1-8 3Pt, 4-5 FT), five rebounds, two assists, and one steal in 42 minutes during Saturday's 110-106 win over the Pelicans.
Okogie saw a career high minute total while matching his career high in scoring. Prior to these last two tilts, Okogie hadn't reached double figures in scoring in consecutive contests since October, this after doing so twice in that first month of his career. Okogie continues to earn plenty of minutes thanks to his defensive versatility and effort level, and that could remain the case at the very least until Robert Covington (ankle) returns to the lineup.
Okogie posted three points (0-4 FG, 3-4 FT), three rebounds, two assists, and two steals in 24 minutes during Wednesday's 115-102 loss to the Celtics.
Okogie drew the start in place of Robert Covington (ankle) but was limited by foul trouble and his inability to find an offensive rhythm. It's unclear whether Covington, Jeff Teague (ankle), or Derrick Rose (ankle) will return for Friday's matchup with the Magic, but if not Okogie would likely be in line for another plentiful load of minutes.
Okogie will start in Wednesday's game against the Celtics, Alan Horton of the Timberwolves Radio Network reports.
With Robert Covington, Derrick Rose and Jeff Teague all out with ankle injuries, Okogie will enter the starting lineup alongside Tyus Jones and Andrew Wiggins. Okogie has made seven starts in his rookie season, and he is averaging 8.4 points and 4.7 rebounds across nearly 30 minutes per game.
Okogie had one point (0-1 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), one rebound, and one steal in nine minutes during Friday's 123-120 overtime loss to the Hawks.
Okogie was the lone member of the nine-man rotation to earn less than 10 minutes. The rookie is unreliable in most leagues given his inconsistent playing time and the fact that he's a defensive specialist who mainly provides energy at this stage of his career.
