Andrew Wiggins scored 20 points with five rebounds, five assists, one steal, one block and four 3-pointers in 35 minutes against the Rockets on Saturday during a Game 3 win.
This was not the regular-season Wiggins, especially going 4-of-6 from deep. Plus, his five dimes match his best output in that category all season while he was effective on defense. If the Wolves can somehow get this output from Wiggins in this series, the Rockets may have a tougher time closing out than almost anyone thought. Apr 21 - 10:14 PM

Date:

Andrew Wiggins had 13 points, eight rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in 31 minutes on Wednesday, but the Wolves fell on the road vs. the Rockets.

Wiggins' line wasn't great but it was better than most of his teammates. Jimmy Butler had 11 points, four boards and two assists in 25 minutes, Jeff Teague had eight points in 19 minutes, and Karl-Anthony Towns was quiet again with five points in 24 minutes. Minnesota shot 39.2% as a team and they face a daunting task down 2-0 vs. the top-seeded team in the West.
Apr 19 - 12:12 AM

Andrew Wiggins scored 18 points with five rebounds, three assists and three 3-pointers in 42 minutes during a win over the Nuggets on Wednesday.

Three treys and some big-time boards aren't exactly typical Wiggins. Most importantly, Wiggins hit both of his free throws to put the Wolves up four points with 15 seconds left in overtime. Everyone piles on Wiggins and justifiably so, but now he'll finally be able to show what he can do in the postseason. Fantasy wise, he's hands-off material.
Apr 11 - 11:39 PM

Andrew Wiggins double-doubled vs. the Knicks on Friday with 17 points and a career-high 11 rebounds.

That's the fifth double-double of his career and his first of the season. He hit 5-of-15 shots and turned the ball over four times, but did add two assists, two steals and two triples. Frank Ntilikina played some great defense on him and things won't be any easier on Saturday against Robert Covington and the 76ers.
Mar 24 - 12:27 AM

Andrew Wiggins scored 27 points in Tuesday's 123-109 win over the Clippers, connecting on 9-of-15 shots and 5-of-5 free throws.

He also blocked a game-high three shots with three boards, one steal and four triples. Wiggins, Karl-Anthony Towns and Jeff Teague combined for a whopping 77 points as the Wolves snapped a two-game losing streak, and all three should be locked in for big minutes during the fantasy playoffs as the Wolves jostle for seeding. Wiggins has been on a tear lately, scoring 20+ points in nine out of his last 11 games.
Mar 20 - 11:33 PM

Andrew Wiggins scored 23 points on 9-of-16 shooting in Sunday's win over the Warriors, adding two 3-pointers, five rebounds, three assists and one turnover in 37 minutes.

This was a nice bounce-back performance following Thursday's 6-of-21 shooting performance, and while he continues to offer very little in terms of the defensive statistics, he has really picked up his scoring since Jimmy Butler (knee) went down. Over the past six games sans Butler, Wiggins' usage rate has risen to 26.4 and he's responded with averages of 21.5 points, 3.8 boards, 2.0 triples, 2.5 dimes and 2.5 turnovers per game on 45.9% shooting from the field and 68.0% from the line.
Mar 11 - 6:52 PM

Andrew Wiggins shot just 6-of-21 from the field on his way to 13 points, seven rebounds, four assists, two steals and four turnovers in 38 minutes.

According to Basketball-Reference, it's the first time a Timberwolves player has scored fewer than 14 points despite attempting more than 20 shots since February of 2000. However, coming into Thursday, Wiggins had scored 20-plus points in five straight games and had shot 50 percent or better in four of those five contests.
Mar 8 - 11:31 PM

Andrew Wiggins posted 27 points in Friday's 116-108 road loss at Utah across 35 minutes.

Wiggins was forced to pick up the slack with Karl-Anthony Towns and Jeff Teague ejected during the testy game, and Jimmy Butler still on the shelf due to injury. He hit 10-of-19 from the field, including a red-hot 4-of-4 from behind the 3-point line, and he finished with three rebounds, an assist and a steal. The only thing fantasy owners could complain about in this one is the 3-of-8 night from the free-throw line and four turnovers.
Mar 3 - 2:30 AM

Andrew Wiggins scored 21 points with five rebounds, three assists, one block and two 3-pointers in 38 minutes against the Blazers on Thursday.

Make it four straight games with more than 20 points for Wiggins with 2.0 treys per game over that span, too. Wiggins has a 4.9 usage rate bump when he's not with Jimmy Butler (knee), so he'll be a good bet for 20-plus points more often than not.
Mar 2 - 1:20 AM

Andrew Wiggins hit 8-of-15 shots, a 3-pointer and 5-of-6 free throws for 22 points, one rebound, two assists, one steal and one block in 37 minutes of Monday's win over the Kings.

Yes, he had a three, a steal and a block, but the lack of rebounds and assists hurts his value. Wiggins' scoring drought is over, and he's averaging 22 points, 2.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 0.7 steals, 0.7 blocks and 2.0 3-pointers over his last three games. It's just a shame he doesn't rebound and pass better than he does.
Feb 27 - 12:20 AM

Andrew Wiggins ended up with 23 points over 35 minutes in Saturday's 122-104 victory against the visiting Bulls.

Wiggins picked up the pace, hitting 10-of-18 from the field, including 2-of-6 from behind the 3-point line, as he, Jeff Teague and Karl-Anthony Towns banded together to fill the void left by Jimmy Butler (knee). Wiggins also chipped in with two assists, two rebounds, a steal and a blocked shot. He doesn't do much outside of the scoring categories, but a little help in the other categories was much appreciated.
Feb 25 - 12:08 AM

Andrew Wiggins scored 21 points in Friday's 120-102 loss to Houston, hitting 8-of-16 shots and 2-of-4 free throws.

Wiggins logged a team-high 36 minutes, adding four rebounds, two assists and three 3-pointers. Jimmy Butler left the game with a right knee injury and is set to undergo an MRI on Saturday, and while there is some "hope" that it's not too severe, fantasy owners have to prepare for the worst just in case. Wiggins gets a 5.2 usage rate bump with Butler off the floor and carried the Wolves the last time Butler missed four games, scoring an average of 25.8 points in that span including a 40-point outburst.
Feb 23 - 11:29 PM

Andrew Wiggins couldn't get anything going vs. Houston on Tuesday, hitting 2-of-14 shots for just seven points.

This was just his sixth game of the season with single-digit points, but two of them have come in February. He was a -25 in his 41 minutes of action and missed his first 12 shots, adding three rebounds, one block and one steal. He did shoot at least 50% from the field in his previous four games, so we'll just chalk this up as an off night. Houston's defense deserves some credit as well. A home game against the Lakers on Thursday should get him going again.
Feb 13 - 11:01 PM

Andrew Wiggins ended up with 16 points, eight rebounds, three assists, a steal and a blocked shot in Sunday's 111-106 win against the Kings.

Wiggins hit 7-of-13 from the field, and 1-of-3 from behind the 3-point line, and his head coach Tom Thibodeau praised the play of Wiggins after the game. He has bounced back nicely from a dud on Feb. 1 when he managed just seven points across 30 minutes, averaging 17.0 points, 4.3 rebounds and 1.5 3-pointers per game over the past four outings. Wiggins is a solid scorer, but he struggles in the field-goal percentage department and he doesn't really contribute much else. Even so, he still is producing at mid-round level in points leagues.
Feb 11 - 9:49 PM

Andrew Wiggins finished with 18 points across 37 minutes in Friday's loss at Chicago.

Wiggins hit 9-of-14 from the field, but he was 0-of-2 from behind the 3-point line and he didn't get to the free-throw line. He was able to add four rebounds with a blocked shot, but he also turned it over five times and he finished with a game-worst minus-20 rating. It wasn't his best moment of the season. He'll try and redeem himself Sunday evening against the visiting Kings.
