Flip Saunders said that Andrew Wiggins and Shabazz Muhammad could see some time at PF in small-ball lineups next season.
"Oh, no, he can still play it," Saunders said in regards to Muhammad playing some PF. "We can play Wiggins there. We have a lot of depth and talent, but also a lot of flexibility. Two years ago, we didn’t have that. We were locked into playing just one way." This speaks to the versatility of both players, but there may not be enough minutes to go around for Muhammad to be a reliable asset in standard leagues. As for Wiggins, the Wolves will likely give him all the run he can handle and he should be able to build off last season in which he averaged 20.0 points, 4.9 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 0.9 steals and 0.7 blocks on 44.6 percent shooting from the field after the break. Wiggins has also been working on his ball-handling skills, so it's possible that we will see him run the pick-and-roll a lot more this season. Jul 30 - 2:34 PM

Andrew Wiggins has officially been named the 2014-15 Rookie of the Year.

Wiggins had a strange start to his NBA career, being drafted No. 1 overall by the Cavs, and then shortly after being traded to the Timberwolves (giving some painfully awkward interviews in the process). However, he finished his rookie campaign strong averaging 20.0 points, 4.9 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 0.9 steals and 0.7 blocks on 44.6 percent shooting from the field after the break. He has a very bright future ahead of him, and he'll look to take another step in his development during his sophomore season. He received 110 of the possible 130 first place votes for Rookie of the Year honors, and become the first player in Wolves history to come away with the award.

Andrew Wiggins is expected to be named the 2014-15 Rookie of the Year on Thursday, according to reports.

The Wolves have an announcement scheduled for Thursday afternoon and Wiggins' first piece of NBA hardware is expected to be the topic of the announcement. The 20-year-old averaged 16.9 points, 4.6 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 1.0 steals, 0.6 blocks, and 0.5 three-pointers in his first NBA season and came on strong in the second-half of the season. We'll update this item once a formal announcement comes out, but it would be a major shock to see anyone else with the award.

The Wolves will have an NBA announcement Thursday afternoon.

Presumably, this announcement will be Andrew Wiggins won Rookie of the Year. While you could argue Nerlens Noel had a stronger finish to the season, Wiggins did it over the entire season. Although, he had a very good finish in his last 12, averaging 23.4 points, 5.8 boards, 3.7 assists, 0.9 steals, 0.8 blocks and 0.3 treys. He looks like the real deal at 20 years old.
Apr 29 - 6:07 PM

Andrew Wiggins handed out a career-high nine assists against the Warriors on Saturday with 17 points, six rebounds, one block, three steals and one 3-pointer in 44 minutes.

He matched his career-high 10 boards on Friday. Wiggins was living on his scoring, but now he's really become a well-rounded player. His 4.5 assists per game in six April games are a nice little thing to remember in the offense. Obviously that's not going to happen with Ricky Rubio in the lineup, but it really shows what kind of ceiling we're dealing with here. Wiggins is awesome and looks like a fantasy stud for the next decade.
Apr 12 - 1:47 AM

Andrew Wiggins scored 29 points on 7-of-15 shooting (15-of-16 FTs) with 10 rebounds, a season-high six assists and two steals in Friday's loss to the Lakers.

On the national stage the Wolves made sure to let Wiggins run the show, and with Nerlens Noel sidelined it's probable that Wiggins won over Rookie of the Year voters last night.
Apr 11 - 4:15 AM

Andrew Wiggins hit 9-of-22 shots and 11-of-15 free throws for 29 points, five rebounds and four assists in Wednesday's loss.

Go ahead and give him the Rookie of the Year Award, although Nerlens Noel, teammate Zach LaVine and Elfrid Payton will also be in the conversation. Wiggins is averaging 16.5 points, 4.4 rebounds, 1.9 assists, 1.0 steals and 0.5 3-pointers on 44 percent shooting on the season. He's also scored 22 or more points in four straight games for the Wolves.
Apr 9 - 12:56 AM

The Wolves lost their seventh straight game on Tuesday despite Andrew Wiggins' 26 points and eight rebounds in 39 minutes.

Wiggins made 11-of-20 field goals and 4-of-5 free throws and he continues to thrive in an expanded offensive role for the short-handed Wolves. He's notched 20+ points in seven of his past eight games, a late-season surge which is carrying plenty of fantasy GMs whose leagues continue until the bitter end. If Wiggins can improve his 43.6 percent shooting (32.2 percent from deep) he could easily vault into top-60 value in his sophomore season.
Apr 8 - 12:32 AM

Andrew Wiggins hit 8-of-20 shots and 9-of-10 free throws for 25 points, five rebounds, five assists, a steal and a block in Wednesday's loss.

As long as Kevin Martin is out, expect big things from Wiggins. And even when Kev-Mart is playing, he should still be in starting lineups in almost any league. Can you say ROY?
Apr 2 - 12:50 AM

Timberwolves head coach Flip Saunders said there is no question that Andrew Wiggins should be the2014-15 Rookie of the Year.

While Nerlens Noel is closing the gap with a strong second half, Wiggins is in the midst of a finishing kick that his coach says should leave voters with no doubt. "Anyone that throws anything else out, they’re dreaming," Saunders said. "He is the most dominant rookie. He’s playing in a situation where because we’ve been so undermanned, he is the guy." ROY voting aside, Wiggins is averaging 22.6 points, 5.0 rebounds, 2.4 assists, 1.2 steals, 0.8 blocks, and 0.4 three-pointers over his last five games and is rewarding fantasy owners who were patient through his slow start to the season.
Mar 31 - 9:05 AM

Andrew Wiggins scored 31 points against the Rockets on Friday during a 120-110 loss, adding four rebounds, four assists and one 3-pointer.

He's having a very strong second half and no player has logged more minutes than him since the break. Wiggins has scored at least 20 points in four of his last five, averaging 22.6 points, 5.0 boards, 2.4 assists, 1.2 steals, 0.8 blocks and 0.4 treys. He and Nerlens Noel are making it tough on voters for Rookie of the Year.
Mar 28 - 1:55 AM

Andrew Wiggins hit 8-of-16 shots and a 3-pointer for 27 points, six rebounds, four assists, two steals and two blocks in Wednesday's overtime loss to the Lakers.

Wiggins looks like the Rookie of the Year and might have sewn up the award with tonight's line. He's having a great season and while he's faded at times, looks like he might finish strong. He's played 49 minutes in two straight games.
Mar 26 - 1:42 AM

Andrew Wiggins scored 22 points on 10-of-19 shooting (no threes) with seven rebounds, two steals and one block in Monday's overtime win over the Jazz.

Wiggins has been quiet but it's possible he's ready to explode in the fantasy playoffs. If the Wolves continue to have more injured folks than healthy folks, it's almost guaranteed.
Mar 23 - 11:59 PM

Andrew Wiggins said he doesn't plan on leaving the Timberwolves for a very long time.

When asked if he'd be interested in signing with his hometown Raptors once his contract with Minnesota is over, Wiggins said, "I love Minnesota. They treat me nice up there. I plan to be there a very, very, very long time." While anything can happen over the next four years, the soon-to-be Rookie of the Year is averaging 15.7 points, 4.3 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.1 steals, and 0.6 blocks on the season and is a must-start in all fantasy leagues right now.
Mar 19 - 10:48 AM

Andrew Wiggins scored 11 points on 5-of-16 shooting with five rebounds and no other stats besides three turnovers in Monday's loss to the Clippers.

The Wolves still haven't seen Kevin Martin and/or Nikola Pekovic shut down for the rest of the season and if your league still hasn't passed its trade deadline this is your last chance to get Wiggins before he goes off.
