Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Double-doubles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Towns had 17 points (7-11 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), and 10 rebounds in 18 minutes during Sunday's 148-145 loss to Team LeBron in the All-Star game.

Towns looked very comfortable in his first All-Star game, finishing with 17 points and 10 rebounds. He has been a double-double machine this season and was able to carry over that form in just 18 minutes of court-time. The Wolves are currently in a battle with the Spurs for the third and fourth positions in the West and Towns is going to be a big part of the push. He has had many games this season where he appears secondary on offense, something the Wolves can hopefully figure out as the regular season draws to its conclusion.

Timberwolves' Tyus Jones: Scores eight in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones registered eight points (3-4 FG, 2-3 3Pt), two assists, two steals and one rebound across 13 minutes during Thursday's 119-111 win over the Lakers.

Jones' eight points Thursday were the most he has scored since going off for 15 back on Feb. 3. Aside from a few double digit scoring performances, the former Duke guard has been consistently lingering in single digits and has not provided major contributions to any statistical category during the season.

Timberwolves' Andrew Wiggins: Another quiet outing Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wiggins totaled eight points (4-11 FG, 0-1 3Pt) and four rebounds across 33 minutes in Thursday's 119-111 win over the Lakers.

Wiggins thus heads into the All-Star break on a down note, having scored a combined 15 points on 24.0 percent shooting (6-for-25) over his last two games, a stretch during which he came up empty on six attempts from behind the arc. The 22-year-old had scored in double digits in 12 of the prior 13 games, so the current slump figures to be just a temporary funk that the upcoming layoff could well cure. However, it's worth noting that the Timberwolves' numerous offseason additions have undeniably had an effect on Wiggins' overall usage and fantasy value, as he's seen a six-point-plus drop in scoring (23.6 to 17.5) over last season while also averaging well over three fewer shot attempts (19.1 to 15.7) per contest.

Timberwolves' Jamal Crawford: Bench-leading 15 points in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crawford poured in 15 points (6-11 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT) and added three assists across 22 minutes in Thursday's 119-111 win over the Lakers.

The veteran played a key offensive role in the comeback win while generating his third straight double-digit scoring effort. Crawford has seen a nice bump in usage over the last two games in particular, tallying double-digit shot attempts in each. The 18-year veteran heads into the All-Star break with averages of 11.4 points (on 46.0 percent shooting), 2.2 assists and 1.1 rebounds over his last 13 games, a stretch in which he's scored in double digits on eight occasions. While his relatively capped minutes will inevitably lead to the occasional downturn in production, Crawford figures to continue retaining fantasy viability in deeper formats in scoring and shooting categories for the balance of the regular season.

Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Posts league-leading 51st double-double in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Towns delivered 10 points (2-9 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 6-6 FT), 19 rebounds, four assists and two blocks across 32 minutes in Thursday's 119-111 win over the Lakers.

Towns added to his NBA-high double-double total despite enduring a ragged shooting night. The third-year center's outlier offensive performance -- one that saw him generate his fewest points since Dec. 4 -- was offset by a dominant effort on the boards that consisted of a game-high number of rebounds. Given his vast ceiling, Towns naturally projects as an elite fantasy asset for the balance of the campaign as the Timberwolves continue their push towards the postseason.
