Timberwolves' Josh Okogie: Posts two swats against Dallas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okogie offered nine points (4-8 FG, 1-2 3Pt), six rebounds, two blocks, one assist and one steal in 23 minutes during Sunday's 111-91 loss to the Mavericks.

Okogie has posted two rejections in two of the last three games and has earned at least 20 minutes in six straight showings. Still, his defensive ability doesn't always translate into counting stats, and Okogie's offense remains a work in progress. As such, he's only a viable option in deeper leagues.

Timberwolves' Josh Okogie: Stays in starting lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okogie started at small forward and scored 15 points (3-5 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 7-8 FT) to go with two rebounds and two steals across 24 minutes in Saturday's 142-115 win over the Clippers.

After the Timberwolves traded nearly half their roster before Thursday's deadline, Okogie found a home in the starting five in place of Andrew Wiggins. Okogie's playing time could be in flux in the short term as the Timberwolves figure out how their new players fit, with D'Angelo Russell's (quadriceps) representing the most significant player Minnesota will have to work into the mix.

Timberwolves' Josh Okogie: Scores career-high 23
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okogie put up 23 points (8-11 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 7-8 FT), three steals, one assist and one block in 37 minutes during Wednesday's loss to the Hawks.

These 23 points were nice, but Okogie hasn't produced enough numbers for standard-league value this season, sitting just outside the top 200. At first glance, the departure of Robert Covington could help Okogie see more bites at the apple, but Covington played 88 percent of his minutes at the power forward spot this season -- a position Okogie hasn't seen much of in Minnesota's lineups. Most of his minutes have come at shooting guard, with some point guard and small forward mixed in. Unless the 21-year old soaks up Covington's vacated small forward minutes, it's difficult to envision Okogie leaping onto the shallow-league radar, but he's worth keeping an eye on at the least.

Timberwolves' Josh Okogie: Enters starting lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okogie is starting Wednesday against the Hawks, Jace Frederick of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

The Timberwolves traded away a pair of starters in Shabazz Napier and Robert Covington on Tuesday, leaving Okogie to temporarily fill the void they left behind. In 13 prior starts this season, Okogie is averaging 8.0 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 25.8 minutes.

Timberwolves' Josh Okogie: Finds touch at free-throw line
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okogie submitted 12 points (4-8 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four rebounds, two steals and one assist across 26 minutes off the bench Monday in the Timberwolves' 113-109 loss to the Kings.

Okogie has gone 10-for-10 at the free-throw line over the past two games, a major reason why he's been able to reach double figures in the scoring column in both contests. He continues to show little touch from the field (39.7 percent for the season) and three-point range (25 percent), however, making it difficult to rely on him putting up points with any sort of consistency.

Timberwolves' Josh Okogie: Quiet off bench in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okogie accrued five points (2-10 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three rebounds and one assist in 18 minutes during Saturday's loss to the Thunder.

In the first game of this back-to-back set, Okogie went for 17 points, six boards, four assists and three steals on 66.7 percent shooting, and 5-of-5 from the line. This second outing wasn't nearly as productive for the 21-year old. Okogie had been playing at a top 100 level in nine-category leagues over the last two weeks prior to this game, putting up solid hustle stats, and shooting 50.9 percent from the field over that span. With Robert Covington looking like a sought-after commodity, Okogie is an intriguing player to keep an eye on as the trade deadline approaches.

Timberwolves' Josh Okogie: Coming off bench Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okogie will come off the bench Saturday against the Thunder.

After getting the start Friday, Okogie will return to his usual bench role. As a reserve, he's averaging 8.1 points, 4.8 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.3 steals in 23.3 minutes.

January 25, 2020 02:48 PM
Timberwolves' Josh Okogie: Adds 17 points in start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okogie scored 17 points (6-9 FG, 0-0 3PT, 5-5 FT), and added four assists, six rebounds and three steals across 32 minutes in Friday's 131-124 loss to Houston.

Okogie got his first start in over a month and saw the most playing time he's had since Dec. 6. He acquitted himself well, coming just one point shy of his season high while also contributing solid numbers across the board.

Timberwolves' Josh Okogie: Gets start Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okogie will start at shooting guard in Friday's matchup with the Rockets, Jon Krawczynski of The Athletic reports.

Okogie will get the starting nod over Jarrett Culver, as well as the pleasure of defending James Harden. He has averaged 7.4 points and 3.6 rebounds across 25.4 minutes in 12 starts this season.

Timberwolves' Josh Okogie: Contributes off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okogie had 16 points (7-11 FG, 1-3 3PT, 1-1 FT) and eight rebounds off the bench in Monday's loss to Denver.

Okogie was one of the few bright spots for the Wolves on a night when they shot less than 42 percent from the field as a team. He registered his highest point total in six games, and his eight rebounds were his most in any game since Nov. 27. Okogie also added one assist and one steal in 27 minutes.

Timberwolves' Josh Okogie: Solid effort in rout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okogie scored a team-high 16 points (5-11 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 4-5 FT) while adding five rebounds, five assists, four steals and a block in 30 minutes off the bench during Saturday's 139-109 loss to the Rockets.

Pretty much the entire second half became garbage time after the undermanned Wolves found themselves down 16 points at the half, opening the door for Okogie to put together his best performance of the season. The second-year guard had scored in double digits only once in the prior 13 games and has trouble breaking 20 minutes as often as not, so don't look for a repeat of these numbers any time soon.

Timberwolves' Josh Okogie: Strong two-way effort Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okogie posted eight points (2-2 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks across 25 minutes during Thursday's 116-102 victory over the Trail Blazers.

Okogie, who didn't miss a shot, racked up 25.6 fantasy points Thursday, which is his highest mark since Nov. 18. He also became just the sixth player this season to record a game with at least two steals and two blocks while shooting 100 percent from the field -- the others being Jarrett Allen, Marquese Chriss, Dwight Howard, Nerlens Noel and Matisse Thybulle.

Timberwolves' Josh Okogie: Logs 21 minutes despite elbow issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okogie had seven points (3-6 FG, 1-3 3Pt), five rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in 21 minutes during Thursday's 99-84 win over the Warriors.

Okogie was able to give it a go despite dealing with an elbow injury and contributed across every statistical category. Moreover, Okogie has now gone for double figures in scoring in consecutive contests, this after eight straight single-digit efforts to close out the month of December. He's mainly a factor on the defensive end, but Okogie could be in line to deliver another decent line during Sunday's matchup versus the Cavaliers.

Timberwolves' Josh Okogie: Officially cleared
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okogie (elbow) is available for Thursday's game against Golden State.

Okogie was deemed probable due to an elbow issue, but he'll be ready to roll off the bench Thursday evening. He's averaging 5.8 points and 3.8 boards in his last four matchups as a reserve.

Timberwolves' Josh Okogie: Listed as probable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okogie (elbow) is listed as probable for Thursday's game against the Warriors.

Okogie apparently picked up a minor elbow injury during Wednesday's loss to the Bucks, though it doesn't sound like it will keep him sidelined for the second half of Minnesota's back-to-back set. He's averaging 5.0 points and 3.6 rebounds across 19.4 minutes over his last five games.

Timberwolves' Josh Okogie: Scores 12 in close loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okogie had 12 points (3-8 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 5-8 FT), four rebounds, two steals and one assist in 26 minutes during Wednesday's 106-104 loss to the Bucks.

Okogie played despite dealing with elbow soreness and snapped an eight-game streak of single-digit scoring. The absences of Jeff Teague (knee), Andrew Wiggins (illness) and Karl-Anthony Towns (toe) may have had something to do with this, but regardless Okogie will look to build on this solid effort heading into Thursday's matchup versus the Warriors.

Timberwolves' Josh Okogie: Available Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okogie (elbow) has been upgraded to available for Wednesday's tilt with Milwaukee.

As expected, Okogie will take the court Wednesday, despite being inhibited by minor elbow soreness coming in. Across 30 games this year, he's averaging 7.8 points, 4.5 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 24.2 minutes.

December 31, 2019 06:44 PM
Timberwolves' Josh Okogie: Probable Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okogie is probable for Wednesday's contest against the Bucks due to a right elbow injury, Kyle Ratke of the Timberwolves' official site reports.

Okogie presumably picked up the injury during Monday's win over the Nets. A confirmation on his status may arrive following the Timberwolves' morning shootaround.

December 26, 2019 09:28 PM
Timberwolves' Josh Okogie: Shifts to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okogie will come off the bench Thursday against the Kings, Jason Jones of The Athletic reports.

Okogie has scored just 11 total points over his last three starts, so he'll shift to the bench for Thursday's clash. Treveon Graham is starting in Okogie's place.

Timberwolves' Josh Okogie: Scores just two points Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okogie scored just two points (0-7 FG, 2-2 FG) in 15 minutes in Monday's loss to Golden State.

Okogie got off to a slow start and was benched in the second half as the T-Wolves turned to the bench to try and turn the game around. Like the T-Wolves (who have an 11-game losing streak), Okogie has struggled recently. He's averaging just four points and playing just 22.8 minutes over his last five games, shooting just 19.4 percent from the field.
