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.
Feb 10 - 1:25 AM

Andrew Wiggins scored 19 points on 7-of-13 shooting on Wednesday, adding four 3-pointers, two rebounds and one assist in 40 minutes of action.

In the process, Wiggins became the sixth youngest player in NBA history to score at least 6,000 points. His ability to get buckets is indisputable, and at age 22 we've yet to glimpse his ceiling as a scorer. For fantasy purposes, however, he's being dragged down by 43.8% field goals and 63.4% free throws, both on heavily-weighted attempts.
Feb 8 - 12:05 AM

Andrew Wiggins hit 7-of-14 shots and a 3-pointer for 15 points on Saturday, but added just three rebounds, one assist and one steal in his 38 minutes of action.

He had just seven points on Thursday, but at least added six boards, three steals and a block on a 3-of-10 shooting night in that one. He's been doing a much better job of contributing something other than points on most nights, but Saturday gave us a glimpse of the old Wiggins. Having said that, he's still only ranked as a 13th-round player by Basketballmonster.com on the season. However, over the past month he's been a 10th-round player, meaning he should still be owned everywhere.
Feb 3 - 11:44 PM

Andrew Wiggins scored seven points with six rebounds, one block and three steals in 30 minutes against the Bucks on Thursday.

It's probably not a coincidence that Wiggins' scoring has dropped in every game since his 21-point night against the Nets when Jimmy Butler returned. He's still going to get huge minutes and at least he has steals in five of his last six. Expect him to be more of a mid-to-late round player in nine-cat leagues.
Feb 2 - 12:03 AM

Andrew Wiggins made 4-of-18 from the field for 10 points with four rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block in 37 minutes against the Warriors on Thursday.

He saw some tough defense all night from Kevin Durant and Andre Iguodala. Wiggins exploded for 24, 40 and 29 points in the three previous games without Jimmy Butler (knee), but Butler was very close to returning today. Wiggins' recent uptick could go away vs. Brooklyn on Saturday.
Jan 26 - 12:52 AM

Andrew Wiggins scored 24 points during a 123-114 loss to the Blazers on Wednesday, adding two rebounds, two assists, one block and two 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

He's clearly benefitted from Jimmy Butler (knee) not playing with 40 and 29 points in his previous two outings. Wiggins has a 28.7 usage rate when Butler isn't on the floor with him compared to just 22.0 with him. He'll get a noticeable bump while Butler is on the shelf.
Jan 25 - 12:29 AM

Andrew Wiggins posted a season-high in points for the second time in a row in Monday's 126-118 win over the Clippers, dropping 40 points in 41 minutes.

Wiggins hit 16-of-28 shots and 5-of-8 free throws, adding six rebounds, one assist, one block and three triples. He had 29 points, five rebounds, three assists and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes in his last game, and he's been the putting the Wolves on his back with Jimmy Butler missing the last two games with right knee soreness. This was the sixth game of his career with 40+ points and he'll be a monster play once again if Butler can't go vs. the Blazers on Wednesday or the Warriors on Thursday.
Jan 23 - 1:10 AM

Andrew Wiggins scored a season-high 29 points during a 115-109 win over the Raptors on Saturday, adding five rebounds, three assists and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes.

He shot the ball well with his 11-of-21 from the field and 6-of-6 from the line. Wiggins also pulled down two huge rebounds late in the game to help the Wolves snap their two-game losing streak. It's not really a surprise that Wiggins blew up because Jimmy Butler (knee) didn't play. It doesn't sound like Jimmy will be out long, so this strong game doesn't really change Wiggins' outlook.
Jan 21 - 1:00 AM

Andrew Wiggins ended up with 19 points on 8-of-15 shooting Wednesday's 104-88 home win against the Thunder.

Wiggins chipped in with three rebounds, two assists and a steal over 42 minutes. He also extended his streak with at least one 3-pointer to 11 games dating back to Dec. 20. He is averaging 21.3 points, 5.7 rebounds, 1.0 blocks and 1.0 steals over his past three outings, but overall his numbers this season have been down across the board. That includes an awful 63.0 percent from the free-throw line, easily a career low.
Jan 11 - 12:19 AM

Andrew Wiggins made just 3-of-12 from the field for 10 points with three rebounds, one assist, one steal, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes in Boston on Friday.

It's Bizarro Wiggins with some defensive stats and very little scoring. Boston handled him through this game, so just chalk up the bad shooting to a bad matchup. Although, Wiggins made just 39.8 percent from the field in December, so his fantasy value is very low right now.
Jan 5 - 10:01 PM

Andrew Wiggins scored 21 points (7-of-16 FGs, 6-of-7 FTs) with a season-high nine rebounds on Monday vs. the Lakers, adding four assists, one steal, one block and one triple in 35 minutes.

It's not often that we see Wiggins fill up the boxscore outside of the scoring column like tonight, but a matchup against the 11-25 Lakers probably helped. He's starting to heat up again with 21 points in three out of his last four games, but just like his previous three seasons in the NBA, fantasy owners are still waiting for the peripheral stats to come around -- he was averaging just 3.9 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 0.6 blocks and 1.2 steals prior to tonight.
Jan 1 - 11:23 PM

Andrew Wiggins (sprained right ankle) scored 14 points on 5-of-13 FGs and 2-of-4 FTs on Sunday, adding two rebounds, two assists and one steal in 31 minutes.

Wiggins stepped on Jimmy Butler's foot during Thursday's game but he played through the ailment, and coach Tom Thibodeau was never worried. "[Wiggins] is very durable," Thibs said before the game. "He’s good." Two of his makes came from downtown and that's an encouraging trend for fantasy owners -- he's averaging 2.8 triples on 56.0% shooting from deep over the past five games.

Andrew Wiggins (ankle) and Tyus Jones (finger) will be available to play Sunday against the Pacers.

Wiggins was held out of Saturday's practice after spraining his right ankle on Thursday, but it looks like he'll fight through the pain today, and he should be out there for his usual minutes. Jones dislocated his pinky on Thursday but played through it, and we wouldn't expect the injury to greatly hamper his production. Feel free to get these guys active.
