G - MIN
Minnesota Timberwolves guard Jaylen Nowell (right tibia) has been ruled out Monday against the Kings.
Both Nowell and Malik Beasley will both be absent for Monday's game. On brighter news, Ricky Rubio and D'Angelo Russell are both active meaning the will likely soak up the minutes left behind by the pair.
Jaylen Nowell managed 14 points (6-12 FG, 2-5 3PT), one board, three assists, one block, and one turnover in Monday's loss to the Thunder.
Nowell recorded his sixth double-figure scoring effort in seven games. He's had a very productive month thus far, and has clearly earned himself a permanent spot in the rotation. However, fantasy owners may want to consider selling high while they can, as D'Angelo Russell and Malik Beasley are set to make their long-awaited returns in the near future.
Jaylen Nowell produced 28 points (11-13 FG, 6-7 3PT), five rebounds, six assists, one steal, one block, and two turnovers in Thursday's win against the Pelicans.
Nowell came alive in the second half, firing in 23 of his 28 points to help the Wolves take down the Pelicans. He had an eight-game streak of scoring in double-figures over a month ago, and has continually showcased his ability to be a force on offense when given enough minutes. Nowell is worth an add in deeper formats.
Jaylen Nowell pitched in 14 points (6-12 FG, 2-5 3PT) and two rebounds in Friday night's win versus Oklahoma City.
Nowell has actually scored in double-figures in six straight games now. While he hasn't offered much else on the stat sheet, his scoring production can no longer be ignored, especially given how effective he's been in just 16 minutes per game this season. Nowell should be rostered in deeper leagues.
Jaylen Nowell finished with 12 points (4-11 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 2-3 FT), two rebounds and a block over 16 minutes in the Timberwolves’ 106-104 loss to the Bucks on Wednesday.
Nowell matched his season-high in minutes while pouring in a career-high point total in Wednesday's close loss. The rookie out of Washington has appeared in just five games for Minnesota this season, spending much of his time with the G League Iowa Wolves instead. He was able to secure some minutes off the bench Wednesday due to a litany of injuries, though he'll likely be sent back to Iowa or hit the bench in Minnesota as the team gets healthy.
