Andrew Wiggins scored 32 points in Monday's win over the 76ers, adding six boards, three assists, one steal, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 38 minutes.
Wiggins came alive in the fourth quarter and was all over the court tonight. One of the knocks on Wiggins in terms of fantasy is that he doesn't fill up the box score other than the scoring column, but he was simply fantastic Monday. His defensive stats have improved lately with averages of 1.2 blocks and 1.0 steal per game over his last five, but he's still only returning late-round value and is better suited for points leagues.

Timberwolves GM Milt Newton said Andrew Wiggins needs to improve in the pick-and-roll.

"He has to still realize when to pull up, when to attack and when to pass," Newton said. "And we need him to approach every game with a sense of urgency. When he does that, he's pretty damn close to unstoppable. But there are games where he doesn't dominate, because maybe he just doesn't want to." There was pre-draft chatter about Wiggins' ability to assert himself on the floor, and he's still battling some inconsistency in that regard. Averaging 21.5 points, 3.4 rebounds, 1.9 assists, 0.6 steals, 0.6 blocks and 0.8 3-pointers on 42.9 percent shooting, Wiggins is better suited for points leagues instead of standard formats.

Andrew Wiggins scored 21 points with five rebounds, three assists and two turnovers in36 minutes against the Pistons during a 96-86 loss on Friday.

The Wolves are going smaller more often and Wiggins picked up seven minutes at power forward tonight. Wiggins has scored at least 19 points in eight consecutive games, but he's still not doing much else. Even with his upward trend in his last five, he is still only a ninth-round guy in that span.

Andrew Wiggins sent Wednesday's game into overtime with a spinning bank shot in the lane, finishing the Wolves' defeat with 28 points (8-of-17 FGs, 12-of-14 FTs), five rebounds, and two blocks.

The Wolves fell to 5-2 on the road, which is still infinitely better than their 0-6 record at home. "I think the road is a blessing to us," Wiggins said on Tuesday. "That's one of the joys of playing on the road -- everyone's against you, except the guys on your team." They almost pulled out a strong win in Orlando tonight but couldn't hang on in OT, and they'll look to regroup vs. the Pistons on Friday.

Andrew Wiggins scored 24 points on 8-of-21 shooting in Tuesday's win over the Heat, adding three boards, one assist, three steals and one block in 33 minutes.

Wiggins was very aggressive tonight and was able to get himself to the line 11 times (he hit eight of them). Like we've been preaching all year, he doesn't really fill up the stat sheet other than a healthy helping of points, so his uspide is going to be limited until he can improve his output in rebounds, assists, blocks and treys. He should return late-round value on a consistent basis, but he should show some improvement towards the end of the season. He's a nice play in points leagues and DFS, though. On a side note, check out the link below to see him nearly put Hassan Whiteside on a poster with a ridiculous dunk attempt.

Andrew Wiggins posted a prototypical Wiggins' line during Sunday's loss to the Grizzlies, scoring 21 points on 8-of-14 shooting to go with one 3-pointer, one steal, one rebound, one assist, one block and two turnovers through 37 minutes of action.

Wiggins also shot 4-of-5 from the charity stripe, but the lack of diversity with the other statistics is what really holds Wiggins back from being a truly elite asset in standard leagues. His game translates better to points leagues, but in standard 8-cat and 9-cat leagues he's a late-round asset at best.
Nov 15 - 6:59 PM

Andrew Wiggins scored 26 points against the Pacers on Friday with two rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer.

Even though he shot the ball somewhat well at 10-of-19 from the field, this is kind of the quintessential line for Wiggins. He struggles to stuff the stat sheet outside of points, so his upside is capped in standard leagues. His owners have to be pleased he turned it around after issues to his back and knee so far this season.
Nov 13 - 10:30 PM

Andrew Wiggins (knee) scored 19 points on Thursday after a one-game hiatus, adding two rebounds, five assists and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes.

It wasn't the worst game and at least he only needed to miss one game due to knee soreness. That said, having back and knee soreness in November isn't really a great sign for a 20-year-old player. Wiggins is more of a points-league guy than a guy for standard leagues.
Nov 12 - 10:58 PM

Andrew Wiggins (knee) will play against the Warriors on Thursday.

He only has knee soreness and should be ready to play without limitations. Wiggins had his best game of the season his last time out, scoring 33 points on Monday. He has been pretty bad besides that and he might not be 100 percent, so he'll be a risky DFS play tonight.
Nov 12 - 7:06 PM

Andrew Wiggins will test out his sore right knee during pregame warmups before deciding if he will play in Thursday's game against the Warriors.

Both Rubio and Wiggins have been downgraded to game-time decisions after being listed as probable earlier in the evening, although Wiggins seems to be a safer bet to play as he's simply dealing with soreness in his knee. If he can't give it a go, Kevin Martin would draw another start, and he'd be someone to consider in daily leagues. Stay tuned.
Nov 12 - 6:44 PM

Andrew Wiggins (sore right knee) is probable for Thursday's game against the Warriors.

While Wiggins was a late scratch for the second half of a back-to-back set on Tuesday, it sounds ready to go for Thursday's game against the Warriors. We'll keep an eye out for updates after shootaround, but fantasy owners should feel safe in putting Wiggins back in their lineups.
Nov 12 - 11:09 AM

Andrew Wiggins (sore right knee) is probable for Thursday's game vs. the Warriors.

We'll likely get another update on Wiggins following Thursday morning's shootaround, but after being a late-scratch on Tuesday, it sounds like he'll be back out there Thursday night. His return to the lineup will hurt the fantasy value of Zach LaVine.
Nov 11 - 12:07 PM

Andrew Wiggins (sore right knee) will not play on Tuesday vs. the Hornets.

This is the first game he has missed in his career and the injury isn't serious (he took a hard fall on Monday night), so we will consider him day-to-day moving forward. Consider Wiggins questionable to play on Thursday vs. the Warriors. Kevin Martin will draw the start Tuesday, while Zach LaVine and Shabazz Muhammad should play more as well.
Nov 10 - 8:00 PM

Andrew Wiggins is not expected to play on Tuesday vs. the Hornets.

Wiggins took a hard fall on Monday night against the Hawks, but it isn't clear what exactly he injured and he seemed to be fine on his way to 33 points in the win. Go ahead and replace Wiggins in all your lineups, and we'll update his status when we know more. Expect Zach LaVine, Shabazz Muhammad and Kevin Martin to benefit.
Nov 10 - 7:39 PM

Andrew Wiggins got hot on Monday and hit 15-of-22 shots to tie his career high with 33 points and added five rebounds, four assists, a steal, a block and a 3-pointer in 38 minutes.

He scored 31 on Saturday and is really heating up for the Wolves. He should be locked into all lineups with five games this week, while Kevin Martin played just 24 minutes off the bench tonight behind Wiggins. Kev-Mart had 13 points and two 3's, but will take a hit for as long as Wiggins stays this hot.
