Jake Layman News
Minnesota Timberwolves small/power forward Jake Layman is back in the starting lineup Monday after a one-game demotion to the second unit. While Layman has averaged north of 20 minutes per contest across his nine starts this year, he has actually averaged more PPG as a reserve (6.3) than as a starter (5.6). Irrespective of his role, Layman can be viewed as a deep season-long league commodity only, one with a limited span of fantasy viability with Malik Beasley's (suspension) return on the horizon.
Minnesota Timberwolves forward Jake Layman is expected to come off the bench for Tuesday's contest. The Wolves are without both Karl-Anthony Towns (wrist) and Josh Okogie (hamstring) for the time being. Layman is expected to see time at both the small forward and power forward spot. There really is no upside here with Layman regardless of how many minutes he plays. He'll only be worth a look in deeper formats.
Minnesota Timberwolves forward Jake Layman (toe) is listed as probable for Monday's game against the Dallas Mavericks. Layman hasn't been on the court since November due to a left toe issue. It sounds like he'll be on the court here, but he should be heavily limited after missing multiple months of action. Juan Hernangomez and James Johnson could see minutes with Layman back in the mix. Layman could have some deep league value once he's back to full speed.
Minnesota Timberwolves forward Jake Layman (toe) has been cleared to return to practice. Layman has not played in a game since November due to a turf toe issue. He was cleared to do some on-court work earlier this month, but this is a sign in the right direction. It sounds like the team is going to evaluate Layman is about a week. He could be worth a look in deep leagues once he's back in the rotation.
