  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Turns in 17 points

    McDaniels closed with 17 points (6-11 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five rebounds, one assist and two steals across 28 minutes during Thursday's 128-91 win over Portland. McDaniels' value as a fantasy target is a variance-filled proposition, as his numbers fluctuate nightly. He scored nine points in the first quarter, and Minnesota's 44-14 lead marked the most lopsided quarter of the season. The Timberwolves are running hot with four straight wins, and despite some rocky numbers, McDaniels has value as a consistent starter with the first unit.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Good to go against Portland

    McDaniels is available for Tuesday's game versus the Timberwolves. McDaniels has been upgraded from questionable to available Tuesday despite dealing with a left index finger sprain. McDaniels is averaging 9.4 points, 2.4 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 29.0 minutes across his last five appearances.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Returns to injury report

    McDaniels is questionable for Tuesday's game against Portland due to a left index finger sprain. McDaniels has been appearing on Timberwolves injury reports for the past week due to the finger sprain, but he has yet to miss a game. He posted 11 points (5-8 FG), one assist, one steal and one rebound across 25 minutes in Minnesota's win over the Clippers and likely would have seen more playing time in the fourth quarter if the game hadn't been a blowout. Assuming he didn't suffer a setback with the finger Monday, McDaniels should face no restrictions Tuesday if he's cleared to play.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Cleared for action

    McDaniels (finger) will play Monday versus the Clippers, Alan Horton of the Timberwolves Radio Network reports. McDaniels exited Thursday's game after spraining his left index finger, but the injury will not cost him any games. McDaniels is a critical addition to the Timberwolves' lineup as Minnesota attempts to slow down Kawhi Leonard and Paul George.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Questionable for Monday

    McDaniels (finger) is listed as questionable ahead of Monday's game against the Clippers. McDaniels left Thursday's game against the Bucks early due to a left index finger sprain that now has his status for Monday's game in question. If he is unable to go, Kyle Anderson and Nickeil Alexander-Walker are likely candidates to get extra minutes.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Suffers finger sprain

    McDaniels suffered a left index finger sprain during Thursday's 129-105 win over the Bucks and wasn't able to return. He finished with eight points (3-5 FG, 2-4 3Pt), three rebounds and two blocks in 19 minutes. The severity of the injury isn't known, but the good news for Minnesota is that they are off until Monday's game against the Clippers. If McDaniels is unable to play Monday, Minnesota could turn to Kyle Anderson and Naz Reid to soak up some additional minutes at forward.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Held in check

    McDaniels finished Sunday's 111-90 victory over the Rockets with five points (2-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt), four rebounds, two assists and one block across 29 minutes. McDaniels' streak of scoring in double figures ended at three, as he couldn't generate much offensively Sunday. He hasn't lived up to the offseason hype in fantasy basketball, as he's sitting outside the top-150 in nine-category formats due to muted production across the board. In 40 appearances, the forward holds averages of 10.8 points, 2.7 rebounds, 1.4 assists, 1.3 three-pointers, 0.9 steals and 0.5 blocks.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Season-high 23 points in victory

    McDaniels supplied 23 points (8-11 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), two rebounds and one steal in 30 minutes during Wednesday's 124-117 victory over Detroit. McDaniels connected on a trio of threes while finishing as one of three Timberwolves with 20 or more points and ending with a season-high scoring mark in a winning effort. McDaniels has surpassed the 20-point mark in four games this year, connecting on three or more threes in three of those four outings.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Scores 11 points in loss

    McDaniels closed Wednesday's 117-106 loss to the Pelicans with 11 points (5-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt), two assists, one block and two steals over 33 minutes. McDaniels' final stat line was not impressive, but he was one of the few players who managed to score in double digits in a game where the Timberwolves struggled badly on the offensive end. He should remain relevant in fantasy due to his starting role on one of the best teams in the Western Conference, but he's also very inconsistent on a game-to-game basis, mainly due to the nature of his secondary role in an offense led by Anthony Edwards and Karl-Anthony Towns.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Suiting up Monday

    McDaniels (tailbone) will play Monday against Miami, Alan Horton of the Timberwolves Radio Network reports. McDaniels is active Monday after suffering a lower spine/tailbone bruise in Saturday's win over the Pacers. Playing on normal rest is a good sign for the 23-year-old, but there's a chance he isn't 100 percent after moving gingerly following the incident Saturday.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Listed as questionable

    McDaniels is questionable for Monday's game against the Heat due to a sacral contusion, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. McDaniels left Saturday's game against the Pacers after just 18 minutes due to the injury. If McDaniels is sidelined, Kyle Anderson, Troy Brown and Nickeil Alexander-Walker would be candidates for increased roles.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Will not return Saturday

    McDaniels will not return to Saturday's game against the Pacers due to a tailbone bruise. He finished with five points (2-4 FG, 1-1 3Pt), one rebound and one steal in 18 minutes. McDaniels was uncomfortable on the court and wasn't moving around well. Presumably, he'll be day-to-day going forward with his status in the air for Monday's game against Miami. If McDaniels misses time, the Timberwolves will likely rely on Kyle Anderson, Troy Brown and Nickeil Alexander-Walker.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Available against Dallas

    McDaniels (ankle) is available for Thursday's game against the Mavericks. Minnesota will be thrilled to have both Anthony Edwards (hip) and McDaniels (ankle) back in action Thursday. McDaniels has missed the past eight games for the Timberwolves, so there's a good chance he'll have some restrictions. With Minnesota getting healthier, the fantasy value of Troy Brown and Nickeil Alexander-Walker is likely to trend down.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Iffy against Dallas

    McDaniels (ankle) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game versus the Mavericks. McDaniels returned to action Tuesday after missing the previous eight games with an ankle injury but is in danger of missing Thursday's contest. Troy Brown and Nickeil Alexander-Walker will likely receive extended minutes if McDaniels is ultimately ruled out.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Active but not starting

    McDaniels (ankle) is active for Monday's game against the Pelicans. McDaniels has missed the Timberwolves' last eight games while recovering from a sprained right ankle, and it appears the team is preparing to ease him back into action off the bench Monday. Troy Brown will enter the starting five at shooting guard with Anthony Edwards (hip) out of commission, bumping Nickeil Alexander-Walker to small forward.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Cleared for individual workouts

    McDaniels (ankle) was cleared to workout and participate in individual on-court activities Tuesday. McDaniels is exactly two weeks removed from suffering a Grade 1 right lateral ankle sprain. He was initially diagnosed with a 2-3 week window to return to gameplay, so while he appears to be slightly behind in his recovery, McDaniels could ascend to five-on-five basketball activities throughout the coming week. Minnesota owns the top defensive rating in the league through 19 games, but McDaniels and Jordan McLaughlin (knee) both ramping up to return to action bodes well for the Timberwolves' rest-of-season outlook.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Set for multi-week absence

    The Timberwolves announced Tuesday that McDaniels has been diagnosed with a Grade 1 right lateral ankle sprain and will likely return to game action in 2-to-3 weeks, Chris Hine of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Minnesota is set to re-evaluate McDaniels in one week, after which he could be cleared to resume conditioning work and on-court activity. The fact that McDaniels sustained the lowest grade of sprain to his ankle in Monday's win over the Knicks bodes well for his rest-of-season outlook, though the Timberwolves will be forced to rely more heavily on the likes of Kyle Anderson, Nickeil Alexander-Walker, Troy Brown and Naz Reid to fill his minutes over the next several games.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Likely out at least one week

    Coach Chris Finch said Tuesday that McDaniels (ankle) is "certainly not going to be a day-to-day" situation and will "probably be [out] a week or so," Joe Nelson of SI.com reports. Finch added that McDaniels still needs to go through further testing Tuesday, but it sounds like he'll miss at least a few games. Nickeil Alexander-Walker started the second half of Monday's win over the Knicks in McDaniels' stead and finished with 33 minutes, but Troy Brown and Naz Reid are also candidates for increased roles until McDaniels is cleared to return.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Shut down vs. Knicks

    McDaniels won't return to Monday's game against New York due to a right ankle sprain, Dane Moore of 'The Dane Moore NBA Podcast' reports. McDaniels rolled his ankle during the first quarter of Monday's action, and he was spotted hobbling to the locker room prior to being officially ruled out. Troy Brown and Kyle Anderson are the team's two top candidates to receive additional opportunities with McDaniels out of commission.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Gets ejected Tuesday

    McDaniels was ejected from Tuesday's game versus the Warriors with 10:17 remaining in the first quarter for fighting with Klay Thompson, Chris Hine of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. He missed his only field-goal attempt and recorded no other statistics during his time on the court. McDaniels and Thompson were assessed two technical fouls and were tossed from the contest after the two began tussling when they became tangled up with one another on a long rebound. Multiple players ran toward McDaniels and Thompson when they began fighting, with Draymond Green also getting ejected after being assessed a Flagrant 2 foul for putting Rudy Gobert in a headlock. The NBA will presumably review the incident before doling out any potential punishment, so McDaniels' fantasy managers in leagues with daily lineup moves will want to keep tabs on his status heading into the Timberwolves' next game Wednesday in Phoenix.
