Andrew Wiggins scored 18 points on 5-of-16 shooting (8-of-10 FTs) with three rebounds, four assists, two steals and one block in Monday's loss to the Clippers.
This is an early taste of what his stat-set will look like whenever (if) Kevin Martin finally gives way. Increased touches help smooth out the rough edges whenever he misses out on a category, as he did with the field goal shooting and lack of a 3-pointer tonight. Mar 2 - 11:57 PM

Andrew Wiggins scored 25 points in a 101-97 loss to the Grizzlies on Saturday with four rebounds, two assists, one steal and two turnovers on 10-of-22 from the field.

Even though Nerlens Noel is making nice little charge, Wiggins is still the heavy favorite for Rookie of the Year. His February numbers were not quite as great as January, averaging 16.8 points, 4.8 boards, 2.3 assists, 1.0 steals and 0.2 treys on 45.7 percent from the field. He is a must-start player.

Andrew Wiggins was tremendous against the Rockets during a 113-102 loss on Monday, scoring 30 points with six rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 41 minutes.

He set the NBA record for most points scored on a player's 20th birthday, breaking Michael Beasley's previous record of 23. Wiggins is coming out of his slump, averaging 17.8 points, 5.3 boards, 2.8 assists, 0.8 steals, 0.8 blocks and 2.7 turnovers on 50.6 percent from the field in his last six. He seems like a lock for Rookie of the Year and is a must-start player again.

Andrew Wiggins scored 20 points in the Wolves' 111-109 win over the Suns on Friday, hitting 9-of-15 shots with two rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 37 minutes.

Wiggins is going to fully break out at some point and there's a limited window to buy him low before that happens. That he's bringing this type of output with Kevin Martin and Nikola Pekovic around speaks to his ability to stay in lineups in the meantime.

When asked about the trade that sent him to the Timberwolves, Andrew Wiggins stated, "I think it was the best move for me."

It's hard to disagree with the 19-year-old prospect. Wiggins has had an opportunity to shine and play through mistakes in Minnesota, where he simply wouldn't have been afforded this role or opportunity with LeBron's Cavaliers. "It gave me more room and put me in a position where I could grow up faster. In the league, that’s always what’s best for you," he said.

Andrew Wiggins took home MVP honors in the Rising Stars Challenge, scoring 22 points with six rebounds and four assists.

The World Team beat the US behind 18 points, 12 boards and three blocks from Rudy Gobert, and 16 points apiece from Nikola Mirotic and Bojan Bogdanovic. Victor Oladipo and Zach LaVine each added 22 points for the United States team.
Feb 13 - 11:43 PM

Andrew Wiggins racked up 18 points, one 3-pointer, eight rebounds, five assists and one block during Sunday's 112-101 road victory in Detroit.

This year's No. 1 draft pick is prone to some rookie inconsistency but he's come on very strong after a slow start to the season. Over Minnesota's past 20 games he's averaging 18.7 points, 0.8 threes, 4.8 rebounds, 2.4 assists, 1.3 steals and 0.6 blocks. He's also shooting well from the field and the FT line, while boasting an impressive 22.1 percent usage rate, and his rest-of-season outlook is exceedingly bright.
Feb 8 - 9:04 PM

Andrew Wiggins scored 18 points on 6-of-11 shooting with six rebounds and two assists over 43 minutes in the Wolves' 90-89 win over the Grizzlies on Friday.

Wiggins did not hit a three or have a steal or block and those are key areas for him to produce in if he's going to have a chance of maintaining the value he had before everybody returned. Chances are he's going to have a lengthier dip in value with guys like Ricky Rubio and Kevin Martin back and owners should be looking at this as an extended buy-low period.
Feb 7 - 2:35 AM

Andrew Wiggins made 2-of-8 from the field against the Heat on Wednesday for six points, four rebounds, one assist and one block.

His numbers from his stellar start to 2015 have fallen off since the return of Kevin Martin, averaging 16.0 points, 3.6 boards, 2.2 assists, 1.4 steals and 0.6 blocks on 42.7 percent from the field in his last five. Wiggins was getting a nice amount of shots before tonight, so he should get it going soon. His recent slump is more of a coincidence than anything else.
Feb 5 - 12:48 AM

Andrew Wiggins scored 14 points on 4-of-14 shooting (6-of-7 FTs) with five rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block over 43 minutes in Monday's loss to the Mavs.

The rotation is going to be crowded with Kevin Martin and Ricky Rubio back but if he can do this on a go-forward basis owners will be thrilled. Wiggins might hit a rough patch over the next few weeks but the Wolves are going to ride him hard down the stretch, particularly when their injury-prone veterans start to get hurt again.
Feb 3 - 2:52 AM

Andrew Wiggins' rapid development has even surprised head coach Flip Saunders.

"He's above where we thought he would be," coach Flip Saunders said of Wiggins. "There have not been very many rookies that have gone through a 15-game stretch where they're averaging 21 a game and been in a situation where they're taking the other team's best defensive player and playing both ends of the floor." Wiggins is easily the frontrunner for Rookie of the Year honors, and his owners have got to be thrilled with his growth after a slow start to the season. Wiggins' ceiling is ridiculous, and he's going to be a thrilling player to own for years to come.
Feb 1 - 10:05 AM

Andrew Wiggins scored a career-high 33 points against the Cavs on Saturday during a 106-90 loss, adding one rebound, one assist, four steals and three 3-pointers.

He made 14-of-25 from the field and looked great against the team that drafted him. Wiggins had himself a great start to the 2015 year, averaging 19.8 points, 4.6 boards, 2.5 assists, 1.4 steals and 0.9 treys on 47.1 percent from the field. This guy is going to be good for a long time.
Feb 1 - 12:59 AM

Andrew Wiggins scored 15 points on 7-of-17 from the field against the 76ers on Friday with four rebounds, three assists, one steal and one turnover in 36 minutes.

That's two quiet games in a row with Kevin Martin back in the lineup. Wiggins only had 12 points in 40 minutes on Wednesday and wasn't quite as aggressive. He's probably not going to be the caliber of player he was to start 2015, but Wiggins should still be a lot better than this recent two-game cold spell. Try to buy low if his owner is worried.
Jan 30 - 9:27 PM

Andrew Wiggins scored 23 points on 7-of-14 shooting (9-of-12 FTs) with four rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block in Monday's loss to the Thunder.

Wiggins did not hit a three but he did just about everything else on the court tonight. He'll be looking at a potential lull when Ricky Rubio and Kevin Martin return, and owners will want to target him in buy low deals at that time.
Jan 26 - 11:21 PM

Andrew Wiggins scored 13 points on 6-of-16 shooting (no threes) with two rebounds, one assist and one block over 38 minutes in the Wolves' 92-84 loss to the Pelicans on Friday.

Wiggins could be staring at a rough month with Ricky Rubio and Kevin Martin returning, and then after that Shabazz Muhammad at some point. As that happens, integrating all of these players could easily gum things up for all of them. Still, the Wolves are going to slowly force him into a No. 1 role regardless of who is playing with him, and attrition will also be his ally in the second half of the year. It will be one massive buy low window and owners will want to take full advantage of it.
