Timberwolves' Andrew Wiggins: Struggles in Tuesday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wiggins scored nine points and shot just 4-of-12 from the field in Tuesday's loss at Orlando.

Wiggins had been on a roll as he was averaging 19.4 points and shooting 47.1 percent from the field over his previous five games. It was an off night for Wiggins and the T-Wolves and they should bounce back.

Timberwolves' Nemanja Bjelica: Ejected in Tuesday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bjelica was ejected from Tuesday's loss at Orlando in the second quarter after getting into a fight with Arron Afflalo.

Afflalo threw a punch and Bjelica then wrapped Affalo in a headlock, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Bjelica scored two points in five minutes before the ejection. It doesn't sound like he'll face any further suspension for the incident.

Timberwolves' Jimmy Butler: Excellent all-around effort in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butler provided 28 points (11-22 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), seven rebounds, five steals, four assists and two blocks across 39 minutes during a 108-102 loss to the Magic on Tuesday.

Butler was excellent across the board despite the loss as he matched a season high with five steals and scored a team-high 28 points. He has been particularly pesky on the defensive end of late, with averages of 3.4 steals and 1.0 block per game over his last five outings. Butler has also scored at least 21 points in seven of nine January games.

Timberwolves' Amile Jefferson: Signs two-way deal with Timberwolves
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jefferson will sign a two-way contract with the Timberwolves, Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reports.

Jefferson spent time with the Timberwolves during the preseason before being waived during the last few rounds of roster cuts, so he does have some familiarity with the organization. Since then, he's been playing in the G-League with the Iowa Wolves, where's he's taken part in 22 games and averaged 18.0 points, 13.1 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.1 steals across 34.1 minutes. His strong production was enough to earn a two-way deal with the Timberwolves, though the nature of the contract will keep him limited to a max amount of days he can play at the big league level. For that reason, Jefferson should still get plenty of run in the G-League and likely won't be a fantasy contributor.

Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Collects double-double Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Towns scored 20 points (6-11, 2-3 3PT, 6-7 FT) to go with 11 rebounds, two assists and one steal in 36 minutes during Sunday's 120-103 win against Portland.

For the ninth straight game, Towns clinched a double-double with 11 rebounds. In addition to averaging 14.0 boards over this span, the center has scored in bunches, too. During this run, Towns has scored at least 20 points four times for an average of 19.5 points over his last nine games. Combining these stellar numbers together and it is no wonder that he has collected a double-double in 37 of 45 games this season. In addition, Towns has not scored less than 10 points in 20 straight games, making him a viable double-double candidate almost every night from a scoring standpoint.
