Andrew Wiggins scored 26 points in 39 minutes vs. the Heat on Friday.
He got off to a hot start with 13 points in the first quarter and finished 10-of-23 from the field with three rebounds, one steal, one block and one triple. Wiggins has come down to earth after averaging 28.8 points per game in February, as he's now averaging 19.2 points through eight games in March. Unfortunately for fantasy owners, the Wolves play three games in each of the next two weeks after Sunday's game vs. the Pelicans. The Wolves do have five games from Apr. 3 to Apr. 9, though.

Andrew Wiggins was held to 11 points on 3-of-11 shooting in Saturday's loss to the Bucks.

The minutes (37) were there tonight, but this was one of his worst lines since the turn of the new year. He added four rebounds, one assist and one steal, hitting 5-of-6 free throws. He's been a top-40 player in standard leagues over the last month with 26.1 points, 3.8 rebounds, 1.9 assists, 1.9 steals and 1.2 3-pointers, so his fantasy owners should cut him some slack. The Wolves play four times next week.
Mar 11 - 11:21 PM

Andrew Wiggins made 6-of-24 from the field for 17 points with four rebounds, two assists and three turnovers in 44 minutes against the Spurs on Saturday.

Kawhi Leonard is good. Really good. In fact, it made absolutely no sense for the Wolves to just keep going at him over and over and over again with Wiggins. If you ever want to act like you're playing nice to send your worst enemy to the most miserable place on earth, send them to the Kawhian Islands. We hear it's terrible this time of year.
Mar 5 - 12:31 AM

Andrew Wiggins finished with 27 points, four rebounds and four steals over 35 minutes in Monday's 102-88 road victory against the Kings.

Wiggins has now scored 25 or more points in nine consecutive games, longest active streak in the NBA. It is also the third-longest streak in the league this season. He also owns the longest active streak with 20 or more points, hitting the mark in 18 straight outings. He is much more than just a scorer, however, as he is working on a streak of 10 in a row with at least one steal, averaging 2.1 thefts per outings during the impressive run. Wiggins also has a 10-game streak with at least one 3-pointer. In other words, he can do it all.
Feb 28 - 12:58 AM

Andrew Wiggins scored 30 points in 37 minutes vs. the Rockets on Saturday.

Wiggins finished 11-of-22 from the field and 7-of-8 from the line with two rebounds, two assists, three steals, one triple and six turnovers in the loss -- the Wolves finished with a season-high 25 turnovers that led to 38 points for Houston. He's now scored 20+ points in 17 straight games, the longest streak in franchise history. He's a safe bet to keep the streak going against the Kings on Monday.
Feb 26 - 12:35 AM

Andrew Wiggins scored 27 points on 11-of-21 shooting in Friday's win over the Mavericks.

It would be tough to find a hotter player in the NBA right now. Wiggins added seven rebounds, three assists, one block, one steal and one 3-pointer, and he's now scored 25+ points in seven straight games. Wiggins is averaging a ridiculous 32.8 points on 56.3 percent shooting with 4.8 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 1.8 steals and 2.0 3-pointers over his last five outings, so he's quickly developing into a complete player in both real life and in fantasy. He just turned 22 years old on Thursday.
Feb 25 - 12:04 AM

Andrew Wiggins scored 40 points with four rebounds, two assists, two steals and two treys in Wednesday's 112-99 win over the Nuggets.

He's on some kind of heater right now. Wiggins was shooting 55 percent from the field and 46 percent from deep in his previous five games, and this performance comes on the heels of a 41-point outing on Tuesday vs. the Cavs. He shot 15-of-26 from the field and 8-of-11 from the line tonight, and he joined Kevin Love as just the second player in Wolves' history to score 40 points in back-to-back to games. This has been the best stretch of his career and he looks poised to have a monster run after the break. Wiggins also put Nikola Jokic on a poster tonight, so check that out in the link below.
Feb 15 - 11:37 PM

Andrew Wiggins hit 16-of-29 shots and four 3-pointers for 41 points, three rebounds, two assists and a steal in 41 minutes of Tuesday's 116-108 loss to the Cavaliers.

This was Wiggins' third 40-point game of the season and he scored 20 points in the third quarter alone. When his shot was off tonight he was firing bricks, but he's on fire right now, averaging 31 points on 55 percent shooting over his last five.
Feb 14 - 10:34 PM

The Wolves defeated the Bulls on Sunday, led by Andrew Wiggins' 27 points (10-of-19 FGs, 5-of-6 FTs) with two 3-pointers, six rebounds, four assists, two steals, one block and one turnover.

In the five games since Zach LaVine went down, Wiggins is averaging 20.0 shots per game, which is up from his season average of 18.2 FG attempts. The Wolves shot just 6-of-24 from deep tonight and Wiggins' improved range will be more crucial than ever, so we'll be watching for a possible uptick in his 3-point totals. Supporting stats have always been the issue for him, so any increase would be huge for his roto value.
Feb 12 - 6:26 PM

Andrew Wiggins scored 31 points with five rebounds, six assists, one block, two steals and one 3-pointer in 38 minutes against the Raptors on Wednesday.

As expected, Wiggins has seen a nice increase in usage since the Zach LaVine (knee) injury. In those three, Wiggins averaged 27.0 points, 3.7 boards, 3.7 assists, 1.7 steals and 1.3 treys in 37.2 minutes. Those non-scoring stats are probably not sustainable, but coach Tom Thibodeau did say Wiggins "has to do more." He's clearly trending up.
Feb 9 - 1:34 AM

Andrew Wiggins hit 11-of-23 shots and two 3-pointers for 27 points, four rebounds and two steals in Monday's 105-103 loss to the Heat.

The Wolves mounted an impressive second-half comeback, but Wiggins missed two shots in the final nine seconds that could have changed the outcome of this game. Wiggins is going to be leaned on more heavily with Zach LaVine's (knee) season ending early, and Wiggins looked great tonight, despite a lack of peripheral stats.
Feb 6 - 11:06 PM

Andrew Wiggins scored 23 points in Saturday's 107-99 loss to the Grizzlies.

Wiggins shot 9-of-22 from the field and 4-of-7 from the line, adding five assists, two rebounds, one steal, one block and one triple in 37 minutes. He dished out five assists for just the fifth time this season, so he should get a slight bump in that category with Zach LaVine (knee) out for the season -- Wiggins gets an 8.4 usage rate bump with LaVine off the floor.
Feb 5 - 12:31 AM

Andrew Wiggins scored 21 points with three rebounds, one assist and one turnover in 40 minutes against the Pistons on Friday.

Zach LaVine did deal with a knee contusion tonight, but we still don't know if he'll miss time going forward. If he does, that could mean big usage for Wiggins. With LaVine on the bench, Wiggins gets an 8.4 usage rate bump while he is also more efficient. He'll be an interesting DFS play in a bad matchup against the Grizzlies on Saturday.
Feb 4 - 12:21 AM

Andrew Wiggins came up clutch once again with 27 points in Monday's overtime win over the Magic, shooting 10-of-21 from the field with five assists, three rebounds, one block, two steals and one triple in 41 minutes.

With 10 seconds remaining on the clock, Wiggins drained a mid-range jumper to send the game to overtime. He also had arguably one of the dunks of the season which you can check out in the link below. Wiggins hit a game-winning jumper over the Suns a few games ago and the Wolves have won five out of their last six games, so his confidence is probably at an all-time high. He will get a matchup with the Cavaliers on Wednesday, the team that traded him away for Kevin Love.
Jan 30 - 11:09 PM

Andrew Wiggins hit 7-of-17 shots for 21 points with five rebounds, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer on Thursday against the Pacers.

Wiggins has now scored over 20 points in four consecutive games and has been contributing in other categories aside from scoring, which is part of his growth as a player. He should continue to roll on Saturday, as he faces the Nets who rank 28th in defense efficiency and are giving up the most fantasy points per game to small forwards. He scored 36 points in their last meeting.
