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

Date:

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.
Mar 10 - 1:28 AM

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.
Feb 28 - 11:08 PM

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.
Feb 23 - 11:21 PM

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.
