Minnesota Timberwolves and Karl-Anthony Towns have agreed on a four-year, $224M super max extension (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The deal begins with the 2024-25 season and delivers Towns’ total contract value to six years and $295M.This is well deserved for Towns, who has averaged at least 24 points per game in four straight seasons. He will continue to be in the middle of the Wolves core as they look to build off a playoff appearance this past season.

D'Angelo Russell is reportedly "likely" to be traded during the first week of free agency. (Source: Evan Sidery on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Russell has found his name in the middle of trade talks for a while now. There were some talks of him potentially being dealt on draft day on Thursday, but nothing came to fruition. Free agency opens up on June 30, so look for Russell's name to continue to come up in trade talks/rumors into the first week of July.

Timberwolves F Taurean Prince is considered questionable for Saturday’s playoff game against Memphis as reported by Blue Wire’s Dane Moore. (Source: Dane Moore on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Taurean Prince missed Minnesota’s regular season finale and the Play-In Tournament game with inflammation in his right knee. Prince has logged back to back practices and barring any pregame setbacks should play in Game 1 Saturday against the Grizzlies. His presence off the bench would be welcomed back by a Timberwolves squad trying to win the franchise’s first playoff series since 2004. Jaden McDaniels will continue to see big minutes if Prince ultimately sits but, despite the questionable tag, the Baylor product should be out there Saturday. Check back closer to tipoff if you are rolling with him in DFS lineups.

Patrick Beverley (ankle) is listed as questionable to play in Sunday night's game against the Chicago Bulls. (Source: NBA Injury Report)

Fantasy Impact: Beverley is dealing with a nagging ankle injury that will leave him questionable for Sunday. It isn't clear if he will be able to go, but if he is sidelined, fantasy managers can look for Malik Beasley to see additional minutes in his absence.

Anthony Edwards scored 49 points (16-28 FG, 6-14 3PT, 11-14 FT) to go along with six rebounds, eight assists and one steal on Thursday against the Spurs.

Fantasy Impact: Edwards exploded into a career-high in scoring en route to his fifth career game with at least 40 points. Minnesota is locked into the No. 7 seed in the West where they will play the Clippers.

Timberwolves F Jaden McDaniels is considered questionable for Thursday's game against San Antonio as reported by's Dane Moore. (Source: Dane Moore on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Jaden McDaniels returned to the lineup Tuesday against the Wizards for the first time since March 14 failing to record any points. McDaniels has been nursing a sprained left ankle for weeks. If McDaniels plays Thursday, he will again be restricted to only 15 minutes, so look elsewhere for DFS fantasy purposes.

According to the Timberwolves PR, Malik Beasley (ankle) is listed as probable for Tuesday vs. the Wizards. (Source: Timberwolves PR)

Fantasy Impact: Despite being listed as questionable Sunday, Beasley remained in the lineup and has now been upgraded to probable for Monday. His minutes will continue to cut into Jarred Vanderbilt and Patrick Beverley's.

Jaylen Nowell recorded 13 points (5-8 FG, 2-3 3PT, 1-1 FT), two rebounds, two assists, and one block in 27 minutes in Sunday's blowout loss to the Celtics.

Fantasy Impact: With Malik Beasley out due to a sprained ankle, Nowell saw his most minutes since March 9. In March, the Washington product has been an efficient scorer shooting 51.9% from the field and 42.5% from three. If Beasley remains out, Nowell could be a sneaky value play when the Timberwolves visit the Raptors on Wednesday.

Jordan McLaughlin (quad) is listed as questionable to play in Sunday's contest against the Boston Celtics. (Source: NBA Injury Report)

Fantasy Impact: McLaughlin is dealing with a quad issue that will put his status for Sunday up in the air. It isn't clear when he will be able to return, but if he is out against the Celtics, fantasy managers can look for Josh Okogie or Jaylen Nowell to see additional minutes in his absence.

Jarred Vanderbilt scored 12 points (4-5 FG) and grabbed six rebounds in 23 minutes of Friday's 116-95 win over the Mavericks.

Fantasy Impact: Vanderbilt put up solid numbers considering his playing time on Friday, and he shot well from the field as well (80%). The 22-year-old should continue to see time in Minnesota's starting five as they make the push towards the playoffs.

According to the NBA Injury Report, Naz Reid (back) is questionable to play Saturday against the Bucks. (Source: NBA Injury Report)

Fantasy Impact: The veteran bench player comes into Saturday listed as questionable to play yet again after missing the TWolves previous two games. It's unclear if the injury will continue to linger long-term, but if he is unavailable, Nathan Knight and Malik Beasley could see more minutes.

Per the NBA Injury Report, Josh Okogie is listed as questionable to go on Sunday vs the Pistons. (Source: NBA Injury Report)

Fantasy Impact: Okogie continues to deal with a right quad injury that has cost him the previous three matchups. Pre-injury, the veteran saw his minutes dwindling into the high-single digits. Whether he plays or not doesn't come with much of a fantasy impact.

Per Minnesota's PR team, Leandro Bolmaro is questionable for tomorrow's game against the Pistons. (Source: Minnesota Timberwolves PR on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Bolmaro has not played in a game since January 16th due to the ankle injury he's been battling. However, it would still be good to see the young player active even if he's not been worth any consideration in fantasy.
