Andrew Wiggins' shooting slump continued on Sunday, as he shot 3-of-12 from the field and 4-of-8 from the line to score 10 points.
Wiggins is a combined 33.3% over the past four games, and he rarely makes up for offensive duds elsewhere -- tonight he added three rebounds, one assist and one block, with three turnovers. Until the efficiency and supporting stats improve, Wiggins is really only helping owners with points and 3-pointers. Dec 10 - 10:34 PM

Andrew Wiggins scored a season-high 28 points vs. the Pelicans, making 10-of-18 FGs and 5-of-5 FTs with three 3-pointers, eight boards and five assists.

Wiggins chipped in one block with just two turnovers in 37 minutes tonight. The efficiency was welcome but we're not reading too much into the increased scoring, considering Karl-Anthony Towns played just 21 minutes. It was nice to see Wiggins sink all of his free throws, though, as he came in just 62.6 percent from the line this season.
Nov 30 - 1:05 AM

Andrew Wiggins hit just 5-of-15 shots and 1-of-5 3-pointers for 13 points, two rebounds, four assists and a block in 37 minutes of Tuesday's loss to the Wizards.

Wiggins came in averaging 18.9 points points per game, but he's not having a good year, shooting just 63 percent from the line, hitting just 1.3 3-pointers per game, and logging fewer than two assists per game, along with 1.4 steals. He's worth owning based on his ability to score, but other than that, he's not doing a ton to help fantasy owners thus far.
Nov 28 - 10:19 PM

Andrew Wiggins logged a team-high 41 minutes during Sunday's easy win over Phoenix, finishing with 21 points, five rebounds, four assists, four 3-pointers, one steal, one block and two turnovers.

Wiggins appears to slowly be figuring out that he should be acting like more of a No. 3 option in this offense rather than a No. 1 guy, which is good news for Jimmy Butler and Karl-Anthony Towns. He played with much more control in this one and did a better job of picking his spots, but he continued to struggle from the stripe with a 1-of-4 shooting performance at the line. He's hitting a career-low 63.9% of his freebies this season, which has limited him to late-round value on the year.
Nov 26 - 6:59 PM

Andrew Wiggins hit just 5-of-14 shots and missed all three of his 3-pointers for 11 points, one rebound, two assists, a steal and three turnovers in 36 minutes on Monday night.

Wiggins has scored 11 points in three of his last six games and over his last five, he's only averaging 15.2 points, 2.8 rebounds and 2.2 assists, but is also averaging 1.6 steals, and 1.0 blocks. He's shooting it OK from the floor, but has struggled at the line over that stretch to the tune of 58 percent, making him a tough player to rely on right now. The steals and blocks are saving him.
Nov 20 - 10:20 PM

Andrew Wiggins got hot on Sunday, making 11-of-18 shots en route to 24 points, two rebounds, one assist, two steals and three blocks.

Wiggins played a season-high 42 minutes the hot shooting was a welcome sight, since he was a combined 43.0 percent in his previous five games. The blocks were a season-high and his line would have been even better if he'd made any of his four 3-point attempts, but as long as he's playing huge minutes there are no grounds for complaint.
Nov 19 - 9:50 PM

Andrew Wiggins chipped in 17 points, six rebounds, four steals, three assists and one 3-pointer vs. the Warriors on Wednesday, making 6-of-14 FGs and 4-of-4 FTs.

Wiggins' lack of well-rounded stats have hampered his fantasy value in his brief career, but this year it's been all about free throws -- he's made just 57.4 percent of his 6.1 attempts per game. Wiggins has never been south of 76.0 percent from the line in his career, however, so that was bound to trend up.
Nov 9 - 1:28 AM

Andrew Wiggins made 8-of-12 field goals on Sunday, including a 3-pointer, adding three boards, two assists, one block and one turnover in 35 minutes of action.

Wiggins has been taking a lot of deep 3-pointers this season, and it's intentional. "We’re telling him to play a full step and a half off the 3-point line," Tom Thibodeau said, "so he can have rhythm into the shot as the ball’s being delivered." Wiggins is only shooting 33.3 percent from deep this year, but increased attempts have him up to a career-high 1.7 makes per game. Most fantasy owners will take it.
Nov 5 - 11:12 PM

Andrew Wiggins made 7-of-12 FGs and 6-of-9 FTs on Wednesday, scoring 21 points with three rebounds, two steals, one assist and one 3-pointer.

The bad news is that Wiggins also turned the ball over five times, and his misses at the FT line are weighing down his roto value -- he's a combined 21-of-38 from the line (55.3 percent) through five games. Throw in his meager rebounds (4.8), assists (1.6) and steals (1.0), and it's hard not to be disappointed. He also hasn't blocked a shot through five games.
Oct 25 - 10:58 PM

Andrew Wiggins finally cooled off vs. the Pacers on Tuesday with seven points on 3-of-11 shooting.

The worst part about this line is that Wiggins didn't step up with Jimmy Butler (illness) out. He also hit just 1-of-6 free throws, adding four rebounds, two assists, one steal and one turnover. As bad as he was, his owners should cut him some slack after his impressive start to the season with 24.7 points per game in his previous three.
Oct 24 - 11:56 PM

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.
Oct 22 - 9:36 PM

Andrew Wiggins connected on 7-of-19 field goal attempts to finish with 21 points and five rebounds across 35 minutes in Friday's win against the Jazz.

Wiggins, fresh off signing a multi-year contract extension, has rewarded the team with 23.5 points and 5.0 rebounds per game while averaging 3.0 3-pointers per outing. So far he has adapted well with the addition of Jimmy Butler. Fantasy owners are hopeful his all-around game will improve this season, but that wasn't the case Friday with no assists or steals.
Oct 20 - 11:25 PM

The Timberwolves announced the team has signed forward Andrew Wiggins to a multi-year contract extension.

It's a max extension for $148 million over five years. Wiggins and the Wolves have been expected to agree to terms on this deal for quite some time, and now it's official. The 22-year-old swingman is coming off a career-high 23.6 points per game, but it'll be interesting to see how he adapts to playing next to Jimmy Butler.

Oct 11 - 2:19 PM

Andrew Wiggins scored 19 points on 8-of-13 shooting on Sunday vs. the Warriors.

Fantasy owners are hoping that Wiggins has expanded his all-around game over the offseason, but he finished without a rebound, block or steal in 22 minutes with one assist and two triples. With coach Tom Thibodeau and Jimmy Butler in his ear, we'd expect his rebounding and defense to improve sooner rather than later.
Oct 8 - 10:43 AM

Andrew Wiggins scored nine points with three rebounds, one assist, three steals and three turnovers in 26 minutes against the Lakers on Saturday.

He dropped 41 the last time he played the Lakers, and he wasn't bashful with his shooting and worked a lot in isolation. Wiggins is a very scoring-dependent guy for his stat lines, so the addition of Jimmy Butler should lower his upside in fantasy. There's some talk he will hit the boards harder, but he's still only worth a look in the later middle rounds.
