Andrew Wiggins scored 15 points on 5-of-14 shooting with two assists and two blocks in a loss to the Pelicans on Monday.
This was his fourth game of the season without a rebound, but he does have at least two blocks in three out of his last four games. Wiggins had two 30-point games last week and is still trending up, so hopefully he can recapture some of that momentum on Wednesday vs. the Raptors. Feb 9 - 12:27 AM

Andrew Wiggins scored 31 points with four rebounds, three assists, two blocks and three 3-pointers during a 108-102 win over the Clippers on Wednesday.

He was on fire in the first half with 21 points on 9-of-12 from the field. Wiggins scored 30 points in back-to-back games for the second time this season and now he's doing a better job of getting to the basket -- also playing some more SF minutes recently. His team picked up a big win after suffering a tough loss to the Lakers on Tuesday. Wiggins is doing a little more in fantasy, but he'll have to transform into a multi-cat player to put up must-start value.
Feb 4 - 3:13 AM

Andrew Wiggins snapped out of his slump on Tuesday vs. the Lakers, scoring 30 points on 13-of-20 shooting.

In his two previous games, Wiggins was averaging 10.0 points on 5-of-29 shooting (17.2 percent). Coach Sam Mitchell did say last week that Wiggins was a little fatigued, but he looked great tonight against one of his idols (Kobe Bryant) and his owners should be encouraged. The rising star added five boards, one assist, two blocks, one steal and one 3-pointer to give himself a full line.
Feb 3 - 2:13 AM

Andrew Wiggins shot 3-of-18 from the field on Sunday, but he made 9-of-12 from the line to finish the Wolves' road loss with 15 points, nine rebounds, two assists and three turnovers.

Al-Farouq Aminu was his primary defender and Wiggins isn't the first player to struggle vs. AFA this season -- the Blazers are limiting opposing SFs to just 18.0 points over their past five games. Wiggins' usage rate of 27.8 is easily a team-high, and one off-night offensively won't dissuade him from firing away vs. the lowly Lakers on Tuesday.
Jan 31 - 11:56 PM

Wolves coach Sam Mitchell said that Andrew Wiggins struggled on Friday vs. the Jazz because he was tired.

"He just didn’t have that extra step," Mitchell said. "It happens. Nobody is going to play great every night. You could just tell: Very, very rarely does he ask to come out of the game and he asked to come out of the game early in the third quarter, at the five-minute mark. He just was tired." Wiggins was held to just five points on 2-of-11 shooting, but look for him to bounce back on Sunday vs. the Blazers.
Jan 30 - 11:30 AM

Sam Mitchell recently praised Andrew Wiggins' willingness to pass the ball.

"We’re not a great-shooting team right now, so Andrew can say, ‘OK, I’m gonna shoot every time that I come off a screen-and-roll,'" Mitchell said. "But he’s passing the ball." Good ball movement has been key over the last handful of games for Minnesota, and Wiggins is in the middle of it. The 20-year-old is enjoying a nice January, averaging 21.5 points, 4.3 rebounds, 2.2 assists, 1.1 steals, 0.5 blocks and 0.6 3-pointers on 48.4 percent shooting.
Jan 25 - 10:28 AM

Andrew Wiggins scored 23 points on 9-of-17 shooting vs. the Mavs on Wednesday, adding seven rebounds in 40 minutes of action.

Wiggins has been scoring at a high clip all season -- the difference tonight is that he chipped in three assists, one block and one 3-pointer to round out his line. He's a terrific building-block in dynasty leagues, but rest-of-season he projects as a late-round value.
Jan 20 - 11:59 PM

Andrew Wiggins hit 7-of-17 shots for 21 points on Tuesday and added four rebounds, two assists and three steals in a loss to the Pelicans.

He was 0-for-4 from downtown, or his line would have looked better. Wiggins has scored in double figures in every game since Dec. 7, but generally doesn't do a lot in the other categories. Still, guys who score 20-plus points regularly aren't easy to come by, meaning Wiggins has value despite not being much of a stat stuffer.
Jan 19 - 11:19 PM

Andrew Wiggins scored 18 points on 8-of-13 shooting Sunday, adding four assists, four boards and one turnover through 28 minutes of action.

It’s always the same story with Wiggins. He’s great at finding ways to put the pull through the net, but with his other averages of just 3.8 boards, 1.8 assists, 0.8 steals, 0.6 blocks, 0.6 three-pointers and 2.4 turnovers per game on 43.8 percent shooting has him churning out just late-round value on the year in standard leagues.
Jan 17 - 6:25 PM

Andrew Wiggins scored 25 points with three rebounds, three assists, one steal and three turnovers against the Thunder on Friday.

He is doing quite a bit in the points category with five straight 20-plus point games and has 19.0 field goal attempts per game in his last five. In that span, Wiggins averaged 26.2 points, 3.8 boards, 2.4 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.2 treys on 49.5 percent from the field. Even in what is by far his best stretch of the year, that's still only good for fourth-round value. He still only has 15th-round value on the year.
Jan 15 - 9:54 PM

Andrew Wiggins hit 8-of-19 shots for 22 points, five rebounds, two assists and a steal in Tuesday's loss.

We wonder how many times the "Wiggins scores 22 in loss" headline has appeared this season, and the answer is probably 'often.' This is what Wiggins does and a lack of 3-pointers and steals puts a bit of a damper on his solid scoring average.
Jan 13 - 12:42 AM

The Wolves' offense abandoned them on Sunday, but Andrew Wiggins scored 21 points (8-of-19 FGs, 4-of-5 FTs) to lead his team in a loss to the Mavericks.

Wiggins went 1-of-4 from downtown and while it's nice to see him working on that aspect of his game, he's shooting just 24.7 from deep this season. He added seven rebounds, three assists, two steals and three turnovers in a team-high 36 minutes, but it was all for naught as the Wolves dropped their sixth consecutive game.
Jan 10 - 8:02 PM

Andrew Wiggins made 12-of-19 from the field for a career-high 35 points against the Cavs during a 125-99 loss on Friday, adding two rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block and three 3-pointers.

Obviously that left thumb injury wasn't a problem for him. Before this game, Wiggins had just one 3-pointer since Dec. 22 with no games above 50 percent from the field in that span, and he made 17.1 percent from deep in December. He's really just a points scorer in fantasy leagues and he's sitting on 16th-round value in standard leagues on the season.
Jan 8 - 11:21 PM

Andrew Wiggins (thumb) went through a full practice on Thursday.

Wiggins jammed his left (non-shooting) thumb during Wednesday's game, and had the thumb taped as a precaution during Thursday's practice. However, his full participation at practice suggests that this will be a non-issue moving forward, and owners can plan on having him active for Friday's matchup with the Cavs.
Jan 7 - 3:51 PM

Andrew Wiggins made 4-of-14 from the field for 11 points with three rebounds, one assist and four turnovers during a 78-74 loss to the Nuggets on Wednesday.

His numbers as the starting shooting guard and starting small forward are very similar. In his previous 23 starts at shooting guard, Wiggins averaged 20.7 points, 3.9 boards, 1.9 dimes, 0.5 blocks, 0.9 steals and 0.5 treys. He's been pretty bad in his last month and hasn't even put up top-200 in the last 30 days for standard leagues.
