Karl-Anthony Towns    F/C  Timberwolves

 

 

Karl-Anthony Towns made 11-of-17 shots with a pair of 3-pointers to finish Sunday's road victory with 27 points, 12 rebounds, one assist and one block. How rare of a talent is KAT? With the score tied and 10 seconds left, he pump-faked from the 3-point line, drove toward the lane, and sank a contested floater from 12 feet. He also set a solid screen to give Andrew Wiggins enough room for his dramatic game-winner, and the Wolves walked out of Chesapeake Energy Arena with a 2-1 record.

Shabazz Muhammad    G/F  Timberwolves

 

 

Shabazz Muhammad played eight minutes vs. the Thunder on Sunday, scoring two points without any other stats to his credit. The Wolves retained Muhammad in free agency this summer, despite reported interest from the Lakers -- it's a solid spot in reality, but does him no favors in fantasy leagues. He's never had great per-minute value and belongs on the wire while Jimmy Butler and Andrew Wiggins are healthy.

Gorgui Dieng    F/C  Timberwolves

 

 

Gorgui Dieng came off the bench on Sunday for seven points, three rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer in 12 minutes. It's been a very quiet start to the season for Dieng, who ceded his starting job to Taj Gibson, a favorite of coach Tom Thibodeau. Gibson had 11 points and 10 rebounds in 33 minutes tonight, playing alongside Karl-Anthony Towns in the clutch while Dieng sat out the final 11 minutes. It's a very ominous start, but most owners should give Dieng another week to see if his role improves.

Andrew Wiggins    G/F  Timberwolves

 

 

Andrew Wiggins banked in a buzzer-beating 3-pointer to defeat the Thunder in OKC on Sunday, finishing with 27 points, seven rebounds, four assists, two steals and one turnover in 39 minutes. If you missed this game, be sure to at least catch the highlights. Carmelo Anthony had just given OKC the lead in dramatic fashion, and the Wolves had no timeouts, but Wiggins stunned the crowd with his make from well beyond the arc. He's averaging 2.7 triples through three games, which is a welcome addition to his fantasy repertoire. Hopefully more defensive stats will follow.
