Luc Mbah a Moute could be traded to the Sixers in a Thaddeus Young deal.
He's really battled some knee injuries and couldn't get a regular role with the Wolves, but he'll join a team with some laughable concerns at their forward spots. Philly is probably going to play their kids, but LMAM is on the radar in deeper formats for now. Aug 21 - 7:47 PM

Date:

Luc Mbah a Moute never left the Wolves' bench on Sunday.

He was coming off an 11-point performance in 25 minutes vs. the Rockets, and this unceremonious DNP-CD sums up his lack of fantasy relevance.
Mar 24 - 10:54 AM

Luc Mbah a Moute started in place of Corey Brewer (personal) on Wednesday and had eight points and four rebounds in 27 minutes.

Brewer shouldn't be gone long and Mbah a Moute can continue to be ignored.
Feb 6 - 1:02 AM

Luc Mbah a Moute will start against the Thunder on Wednesday night in place of Corey Brewer (personal).

The move makes sense because Chase Budinger has no chance of defending Kevin Durant tonight. Mbah a Moute has played less minutes at small forward next to Kevin Love and Ricky Rubio than Budinger through this season, but he's a much better bet for bigger minutes. Although, he's not exactly a stat-stuffing player and is only a desperation play.
Feb 5 - 6:46 PM

Luc Richard Mbah a Moute (groin) returned to action on Friday and played six minutes.

Mbah a Moute scored four points with one rebound and has no fantasy value.
Jan 10 - 11:29 PM

Luc Mbah a Moute (groin) will play against the Bobcats on Friday.

He missed three games with a groin injury and could go back to playing 18 minutes per game. Mbah a Moute's minutes could take a bit of a dip now that Chase Budinger is back, though.
Jan 10 - 7:05 PM

Luc Mbah a Moute (groin) will miss his third consecutive game on Wednesday, when the Wolves host the Suns.

Corey Brewer and Dante Cunningham will soak up most of the 18 minutes per game Mbah a Moute is averaging with the Wolves this year. Chase Budinger (knee) is also on the verge of returning, and even if he doesn't start immediately he'll turn the Wolves' SF rotation upside-down.

Luc Mbah a Moute (groin) won't play vs. the Sixers on Monday.

His strained left groin will keep him out of the lineup for his second game in a row. Mbah a Moute was only playing 14.7 minutes per game in his three games before the injury, so he can remain on the wire in most leagues.
Jan 6 - 6:58 PM

Luc Mbah a Moute (groin) will not play against the Thunder on Saturday.

He was doubtful for the game and is now officially out. Mbah a Moute is only being used as backup and has no value while Kevin Love is healthy.
Jan 4 - 8:14 PM

Luc Mbah a Moute (groin) is doubtful to play on Saturday.

He's not a safe fantasy option even when completely healthy, so owners should move on down the line in deep leagues.
Jan 4 - 6:57 PM

Luc Mbah a Moute (groin) is questionable for Saturday's game.

He injured himself during Wednesday's game and didn't do much during Thursday's practice. The Wolves' backup forward is averaging nearly 18 minutes per game since coming over from Sacramento, but his defense-first game inhibits any fantasy value.
Jan 2 - 3:45 PM

Luc Mbah a Moute started at PF on Saturday in place of Kevin Love (personal), and he finished a lopsided loss to the Heat with 11 points, two rebounds and one steal.

Mbah a Moute looked healthy in 26 minutes of action, which is something, but his temporary starting gig was a defensive-matchup move by Rick Adelman and he doesn't have fantasy appeal in Minnesota. He'll promptly return to the bench with Love set to rejoin the team on Sunday.
Sat, Dec 7, 2013 11:18:00 PM

Luc Mbah a Moute will start at power forward against the Heat on Saturday.

He'll likely share most of the minutes at power forward with Dante Cunningham. Mbah a Moute played just 17 minutes against the Thunder on Sunday while Cunningham was at 15 minutes. Both players could have decent rebounding games against Miami. Kevin Love should be considered questionable for Tuesday's game after missing tonight's game for a death in the family, so there's little reason to add either in most formats.
Sat, Dec 7, 2013 07:06:00 PM

Making his second appearance for the Wolves, Luc Mbah a Moute scored two points and grabbed two rebounds in 17 minutes off the bench.

He was slightly better in Saturday's win over Dallas, but fantasy owners can safely ignore him. The rest of the Wolves' performed roughly as expected -- Kevin Love had 16 points, three 3s and 12 boards for his league-leading 18th double-double, Nikola Pekovic added 22 points and 10 boards, and Ricky Rubio handed out seven assists with two steals, but the Wolves yielded 113 points and 56.3 percent shooting in another road loss.
Sun, Dec 1, 2013 10:12:00 PM

Luc Mbah a Moute has rejoined the team in Dallas before Saturday's game.

Acquired in last Tuesday's trade with Sacramento, Mbah a Moute has yet to play for Minnesota. He is present for the team shootaround and could get some time on the court tonight. Still, it's likely that his only impact on fantasy will relate to the number of minutes he takes away from Corey Brewer.
