With all of the T-Wolves injuries at PG, Bayless has emerged as the guy for Minnesota, posting back-to-back double-doubles while exhibiting solid play down the stretch in the last two games. Give him a look if he's still on the wire.
Jerryd Bayless posted his first double-double on the season in a win over the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday while playing a team-high 43 minutes.
