Gorgui Dieng fills box score against the Bulls

Gorgui Dieng scored 3 points, (1-5 FG, 1-4 3PT), 7 rebounds, 2 steals, 1 assist, 1 block during his 17 minutes of floor action off the bench.

Fantasy Impact

Dieng scored 15 fantasy points against the Bulls. Prior to Karl-Anthony Towns returning from injury, Dieng was averaging 28 points in a 9 game span. Now with KAT back, Dieng has averaged 15.7 fantasy points per game in standard leagues. He should now be a bench to free-agent type player for fantasy owners.

Gorgui Dieng relegated back to bench versus Pacers

Gorgui Dieng pitched in eight points (3-5 FG, 2-3 3PT), four boards, and two assists in Friday night's close loss to Indiana.

Fantasy Impact

Dieng had been nothing short of impressive for the Wolves during Karl-Anthony Towns' 15 game absence. Fantasy owners surely enjoyed the ride, but with KAT seemingly back in action, it is probably the right time to cut ties with Dieng.

Gorgui Dieng struggles to find his shot against the Thunder

Gorgui Dieng scored 5 points, (2-7 FG, 1-3 3PT), 4 rebounds, 2 assists, and a steal during his 16 minutes of floor action against the Thunder.

Fantasy Impact

Dieng scored 14 fantasy points against the Thunder and is averaging 17 fantasy points on the season. This was his lowest fantasy scoring game in his past 14 games. Depending on Karl-Anthony Towns status, look for him to have a bounce back performance against the Pacers on Wednesday night.

Gorgui Dieng grabs 10 boards against the Trail Blazers

Gorgui Dieng scored 12 points, (5-10 FG, 2-4 3PT), 10 rebounds, 2 steals, and a block during his 17 minutes of floor action against the Trail Blazers.

Fantasy Impact

Dieng scored 24 fantasy points against the Trail Blazers and is averaging 17 fantasy points per game on the season. He remains a solid flex option until Karl-Anthony Towns returns from injury.

Gorgui Dieng demolishes Cavs with massive stat line

Gorgui Dieng furnished 22 points (8-10 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 13 rebounds, six assists and four blocks across 29 minutes in the Timberwolves’ 118-103 win over the Cavs on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Dieng finished with his fourth double-double in his last 10 games (all starts) while producing season highs in assists and blocks. Without Karl-Anthony Towns (knee) in the lineup, Dieng has averaged 13 points and 10 boards and deserves a start in 12-team leagues for as long as KAT remains sidelined.
