Top Jaden McDaniels News

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Exits Monday's contest early

    McDaniels exited Monday's contest against the Kings early with an undisclosed injury and immediately went to the locker room, Jon Krawczynski of The Athletic reports.

    The extent of the forward's injury is unknown at this time. If McDaniels is ultimately forced to miss time, Taurean Prince, Naz Reid and Austin Rivers would be the primary candidates to receive more playing time.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Returns to contest Monday

    McDaniels (undisclosed) returned to Monday's contest against the Kings, Jon Krawczynski of The Athletic reports.

    The forward exited Monday's matchup in the first quarter but is back with the team for the start of the second quarter. The forward appears to be all clear of injury, but fantasy managers should still check his status for Wednesday's contest against the Warriors.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Another disappointing effort

    McDaniels ended with 11 points (4-8 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-3 FT), three rebounds and four assists over 33 minutes during Monday's 118-111 overtime loss to the Kings.

    McDaniels, who missed a very brief spell in this one due to an undisclosed issue but returned following a brief visit to the locker room, had his third straight game without registering a defensive stat, continuing what has been an underwhelming period. He is now outside the top 170 over the past two weeks, averaging just 1.2 combined steals and blocks. He isn't out of place on a 12-team roster, but the lack of upside does mean managers shouldn't be afraid to send him packing.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Underwhelms in victory Friday

    McDaniels finished with eight points (4-10 FG, 0-4 3Pt), six rebounds and three assists over 31 minutes during Friday's 111-100 victory over the Grizzlies.

    McDaniels logged 31 minutes in the win, although you wouldn't know it by looking at the final box score. After an encouraging start to the season, McDaniels has slowed of late, sitting just inside the top 150 in standard formats over the past two weeks. While he should be considered a viable 12-team asset, the lack of upside does mean managers could consider parting ways should a hot free agent be available.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Strong two-way performance

    McDaniels ended Wednesday's 122-118 loss to Denver with 18 points (7-10 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds, two assists and three blocks in 34 minutes.

    McDaniels impressed on both sides of the rock in the loss, shooting efficiently and collecting at least three blocks for the sixth time this season. His production fluctuates wildly from game to game, but he's still worth rostering in many fantasy leagues. Since Christmas, he's averaging 12.5 points, 4.2 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.1 steals in 29.9 minutes.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Notches four thefts in win

    McDaniels finished Saturday's 110-102 win over the Cavaliers with nine points (4-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt), four steals, two rebounds and one block in 28 minutes.

    The Timberwolves took advantage of a sloppy Cavaliers squad that committed 18 turnovers on the night, with all of McDaniels, Kyle Anderson and Jaylen Nowell coming away with multiple steals. McDaniels didn't supplement his defensive production with much on the offensive end, but he had averaged a respectable 13.8 points and 1.8 three-pointers per game on 55.6 percent shooting from the field over his previous four outings.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Quiet against Detroit

    McDaniels finished with 11 points (4-7 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds and four assists in 29 minutes during Wednesday's 135-118 loss to the Pistons.

    Minnesota's third-year forward has become a solid complementary piece of the puzzle. McDaniels has scored in double digits in 11 of the last 14 games, averaging 13.3 points, 4.9 boards, 2.8 assists, 1.3 threes, 0.9 blocks and 0.8 steals over that stretch while shooting 54.1 percent from the floor and 41.9 percent from beyond the arc.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Sluggish performance Saturday

    McDaniels amassed eight points (3-11 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds and three assists over 33 minutes during Saturday's 116-104 loss to the Pistons.

    McDaniels and most of his teammates were simply not up to the task Saturday as the Timberwolves fell to the lowly Pistons. After scoring double-digits in seven straight games, McDaniels has now slumped to score a combined 12 points over his past two games. He remains a must-roster player, but managers will undoubtedly be hoping for a return to form sooner rather than later.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Efficient shooting in loss

    McDaniels totaled 19 points (8-12 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-3 FT), seven rebounds, three assists, one block and two steals in 34 minutes during Wednesday's 119-118 loss to the Pelicans.

    McDaniels knocked down 66.7 percent of his field goals and turned in his best scoring performance since Nov. 9 against the Suns. He led his team with nine points in the fourth quarter by shooting 3-for-4 from beyond the arc, and he also added three rebounds and three assists in 12 minutes of action.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Posts solid cross-category line

    McDaniels finished with 16 points (6-9 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block across 30 minutes in Monday's 113-110 loss to the Heat.

    For the second straight contest, McDaniels contributed in every major fantasy category, doing so while shooting efficiently from the field. McDaniels had already been the beneficiary of Karl-Anthony Towns suffering a calf injury in late November that will likely keep him sidelined heading into the 2023 portion of the schedule, but Kyle Anderson's (illness) shorter-term absence has also aided McDaniels to some degree. While Anderson has been out the past four games, McDaniels has cleared 30 minutes each time out while averaging 14.0 points, 4.5 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 1.5 three-pointers, 1.0 blocks and 0.8 steals.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Well-rounded outing Friday

    McDaniels accumulated 17 points (7-15 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-3 FT), six rebounds, four assists, three blocks and two steals in 39 minutes during Friday's 121-109 loss to the Celtics.

    McDaniels hadn't recorded a block or steal in either of his previous two games, so Friday's effort was a nice change of pace on that front. He also attempted a season-high 15 shots in the tilt and fell just one assist shy of matching his season high in that column. McDaniels has proven worthy of usage in most fantasy lineups over the past couple of weeks, ranking inside the top 70 thanks to his all-around fantasy contributions. He should remain involved on both ends but could see his production scaled back whenever Karl-Anthony Towns (calf) is cleared to return.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Another night in double figures

    McDaniels provided 10 points (4-8 FG, 2-4 3Pt), three rebounds and two assists across 32 minutes during Wednesday's 104-99 loss to the Mavericks.

    McDaniels knocked down 50.0 percent of his field goals on limited attempts and also drilled a pair of threes. He's now hit two triples in three of his last four matchups and is averaging 13.0 points, 5.3 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.0 blocks over this brief span.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Lackadaisical performance Monday

    McDaniels produced two points (1-4 FG, 0-2 3Pt), one rebound, one assist, one block and one steal across 28 minutes during Monday's 133-112 loss to the Trail Blazers.

    McDaniels was nowhere to be seen in the loss, putting forth his worst performance of the season. Despite the consistent minutes, it's been rough going of late for McDaniels, sitting outside the top 175 over the past two weeks. While he does remain a viable commodity across standard formats, his lack of multi-category appeal does mean he is better suited to specific team builds.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Returns to starting role

    McDaniels (illness) is included in the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Thunder.

    McDaniels returned to practice Friday following a three-game absence due to illness, and as expected, he's back in the lineup with Kyle Anderson heading to the bench. McDaniels is averaging a career-best 11.4 points per game this season across 19 appearances, all of them as a starter.
