Minnesota Timberwolves guard/forward Lance Stephenson (ankle) has been ruled out against the Denver Nuggets on Wednesday. What It Means: Stphenson is dealing with a Grade 2 ankle sprain, which may spell the end of his tenure in Minnesota, as he was only playing on a 10-day contract. Brandon Rush, Kris Dunn and Shabazz Muhammad should all pick up a couple of extra minutes with Stephenson out tonight. Muhammad is our top-projected fantasy option of that trio. We project him for 11.6 points and 3.6 rebounds in 23.5 minutes of action against the Nuggets on...

Mastering the 10-Day Contract: Ghosts of Wolves Past

Mastering the 10-Day Contract: Ghosts of Wolves Past

In the wake of the Lance Stephenson signing, we take a trip down memory lane. A look at the Wolves 10-day contracts of seasons past. The NBA season is nearly two-thirds complete, a split in time that for many NBA franchises signals a post-all star break push for the playoffs. In Minnesota, we better know this time of year to be “10-day season.” A time to familiarize oneself with the pronunciation of a foreigner’s name or to reacquaint oneself with a former college star who has since been averaging a triple-double in some obscure country. Rational or not, 10-day contracts bring...

Wolves 112, Raptors 109: Welcome Lance Stephenson

Wolves 112, Raptors 109: Welcome Lance Stephenson

Towns and Wiggins were stellar again, but the reserves, including newly acquired Lance Stephenson, were key to the Wolves’ comeback win. MINNEAPOLIS -- It was a familiar sight at the end of the game last night. Andrew Wiggins had the ball in his hands to the right of the key with 25 seconds to go. The same spot where he nailed a game-winner against Phoenix two weeks ago. The same spot where he missed the potential game-tying shot against Miami on Monday. Only this time, Wiggins didn’t take the shot. The 21 year old beat DeMarre Carroll off the dribble and snuck around Jonas...

Timberwolves' Kris Dunn (hand) a game-time call Wednesday

Minnesota Timberwolves point guard Kris Dunn (hand) will be a game-time call for Wednesday's matchup with the Toronto Raptors. What It Means: Head coach Tom Thibodeau said Dunn is "getting better," but couldn't guarantee the rookie's status for tonight's game. Tyus Jones and the recently-signed Lance Stephenson would benefit if Dunn sits. numberFire's models don't expect much from Dunn on Wednesday night, and project him to record 3.7 points, 2.4 assists and 1.9 rebounds in 15.3 minutes against Toronto.

Lance Stephenson active in first game with Timberwolves

Minnesota Timberwolves guard/forward Lance Stephenson is active against the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday night. What It Means: Stephenson is no lock for playing time after just being signed to a 10-day contract earlier today. The opportunity is there, but owners in standard formats shouldn't rush to pick him up until seeing what his role is in Minnesota Stephenson averaged 9.7 points, 4.8 assists and 3.0 rebounds on 27.0 minutes per game in six contests with the New Orleans Pelicans this season.

Lance Stephenson joins Timberwolves on 10-day

The Minnesota Timberwolves officially signed guard/forward Lance Stephenson to a 10-day contract. What It Means: With Zach LaVine (knee) done for the year, Stephenson should be able to compete for playing time right away. He's worth a speculative add in deeper formats, but standard-league owners should hold off for now. Stephenson's addition to the lineup could mean less playing time for Brandon Rush. Stephenson averaged 9.7 points, 4.8 assists and 3.0 rebounds on 27.0 minutes per game in six contests with the New Orleans Pelicans this season. The Timberwolves currently rank...
