Tom Thibodeau said that he wants to see a "dramatic improvement" on defense from Andrew Wiggins and the rest of the Wolves.
"He impressed me the way he scored against us when I was still coaching," Thibodeau said of Wiggins. "He made it look easy. I think the challenge — not only him but for his teammates — is there’s going to have to be dramatic improvement defensively. You have to make a commitment in that area." Thibodeau should be great for the development of Wiggins, and he did show some glimpses of his upside with averages of 20.5 points, 3.5 boards, 2.4 assists, 1.3 steals, 0.5 blocks and 0.9 3-pointers after the All-Star break.

Andrew Wiggins wrapped up the season with a 21-point game vs. the Pelicans, making 8-of-14 shots with four boards, one 3-pointer and a pair of blocks in 33 minutes.

Wiggins averaged a team-high 20.7 points this year and his 45.8 percent shooting is a big improvement from his rookie season (43.7 percent). Unfortunately, he was limited to late-round roto value due to middling 3-pointers (0.7), rebounds (3.6), assists (2.1), steals (1.0) and blocks (0.6). We've yet to see what he's fully capable of, but this season's limitations should be kept in mind on draft day.
Apr 14 - 12:57 AM

Andrew Wiggins scored 23 points with three rebounds, one assist and one turnover in 32 minutes against the Blazers on Saturday.

He's struggled against the Blazers all season and this was his best game against them. Wiggins has really added a lot to his arsenal with an array of offensive moves lately. Of course, the major missing piece of the puzzle is a 3-pointer. That aspect of his game will be under a microscope until late October.
Apr 10 - 1:40 AM

Andrew Wiggins scored 15 points against the Kings on Thursday with four rebounds, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes.

It was kind of a letdown in such a favorable matchup. Wiggins has still been fairly efficient since the break with a 58.2 true shooting percentage, so that's a really nice thing to see. Everyone will be watching Wiggins' 3-point shot next season.
Apr 8 - 1:12 AM

Andrew Wiggins led the Wolves to a 124-117 overtime win vs. the Warriors on Tuesday, scoring 32 points on 11-of-19 shooting with five boards, four assists, six steals and two treys in 42 minutes.

He was nothing short of incredible tonight, helping the Wolves overcome a 17-point deficit. The steals were obviously a career high, and Wiggins has now scored 30 or more points in three out of his last five games, averaging 25.0 points, 3.2 boards, 2.0 assists, 2.2 steals and 1.8 3-pointers in that span. He's already a stud in real life, but his fantasy stock for next season is rising rapidly due to his recent improvement from beyond the arc.
Apr 6 - 1:54 AM

Andrew Wiggins finished with 30 points, four rebounds, two assists and two steals in 41 minutes vs. the Mavs on Sunday, making 12-of-21 FGs and 5-of-5 FTs in a home loss.

The Wolves have now lost three straight games, and in their previous five they allowed 107.0 points on 48.5 percent shooting, including 39.7 percent from downtown. Defensive lapses are nothing new for Minnesota and coach Sam Mitchell is letting his young guys play through mistakes, so Wiggins should have a strong finish to his impressive 2015-16 campaign.
Apr 3 - 7:05 PM

Andrew Wiggins scored a team-high 24 points against the Jazz during a 98-85 loss on Friday, adding two rebounds, one assist, one steal and two 3-pointers.

He was the only Wolves starter to have a decent game with the other four starters scoring just 30 points combined. Wiggins' neck injury wasn't a problem and he's good to go. Expect him to have a nice game against the Mavs on Sunday, especially since he's been fairly consistent since the break.
Apr 2 - 12:08 AM

Andrew Wiggins (neck) will play on Friday vs. the Jazz.

He did miss practice on Thursday, but it was just a precaution and Wiggins was even listed as probable on the injury report. Coach Sam Mitchell said that he won't rest his studs down the stretch, so Wiggins should have a strong finish to the season.
Apr 1 - 2:07 PM

Andrew Wiggins (neck) is probable for Friday's game vs. the Jazz.

He was held out of Thursday's practice as a precaution, but he's simply dealing with a sore neck and the injury is not believed to be serious. Expect an update after Friday's morning shootaround, but his owners can keep him locked into lineups for now.
Mar 31 - 2:04 PM

Andrew Wiggins exited Wednesday's game with a chin laceration and is questionable to return.

Wiggins was on the bench with a team trainer for quite a while before heading into the locker room, and it's likely that he's going to have concussion tests before being cleared to return. There is no word of a concussion just yet. If he's out, it looks like Shabazz Muhammad would benefit, but there's no need to make a speculative add yet.
Mar 30 - 9:42 PM

Andrew Wiggins filled it up during a 121-116 win over the Suns on Monday, scoring 32 points with five rebounds, two assists, one steal, three blocks and three 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

He lived at the free throw line, making 17-of-21 from there in this win. For basically his entire NBA career, Wiggins has been a letdown in fantasy because he hasn't been able to add non-scoring stats to his production. Hopefully, he can add some 3-pointers to his arsenal next season.
Mar 29 - 12:05 AM

Andrew Wiggins is working on improving his perimeter jumper.

"if it's not there, sometimes I'll shoot it anyway," he said. Wiggins is making a noticeable attempt to diversify his game, and he could be primed to take a big third-year leap in both reality and fantasy next season with the opposition having to account for an already dominant Karl-Anthony Towns and a rapidly improving Zach LaVine.
Mar 28 - 12:59 PM

Andrew Wiggins scored 16 points on 4-of-14 from the field against the Wizards on Friday, adding seven rebounds, three assists, one steal and two turnovers.

He was having a really good month before this game with a 54.3 field goal percentage in his previous March games. In that span, Wiggins averaged 20.7 points, 3.5 boards, 2.7 assists, 0.5 blocks, 1.4 steals and 1.0 treys. He still only has mid-round upside in standard leagues.
Mar 25 - 10:19 PM

Andrew Wiggins scored 21 points on 8-of-12 shooting Friday, to go with two rebounds, one 3-pointer, five assists, three steals and four turnovers in 36 minutes.

Wiggins is finally regularly contributing across-the-board statistics, which has elevated him to a mid-round evaluation since the All-Star break. He's going to be logging major minutes to close out the 2015-16 season, so he should be able to close out the year as a mid-round asset.
Mar 19 - 12:20 AM

Andrew Wiggins kept it cooking on Tuesday with 23 points, eight rebounds, a steal and a 3-pointer in 39 minutes.

He's scored 23, 25 and 26 in each of his last three games and owners should ride him while he's hot.
