Minnesota Timberwolves forward Jarred Vanderbilt will start during Friday's preseason game against the Denver Nuggets, according to head coach Chris Finch. He'll start alongside D'Angelo Russell, Anthony Edwards, Jaden McDaniels, and Karl-Anthony Towns. It sounds like Finch plans to try different lineups throughout the preseason. Vanderbilt and Josh Okogie will be battling for playing time, but neither are likely going to be 12-team options right away.
Minnesota Timberwolves power forward/center Jarred Vanderbilt has rejoined the team's starting lineup for Saturday's contest versus Oklahoma City, bumping Josh Okogie to the second unit. Vanderbilt had a six-game stretch earlier this year among the starting five, which resulted in him averaging 9.0 points, 6.3 boards, 2.3 assists, and 2.0 steals, making him an appealing DFS option due to his decreased price tag. Vanderbilt hasn't been a consistently aggressive offensive participant, which gives him volatility in season-long league formats even if a consistent starting gig is in his immediate future.
The Denver Nuggets have traded for Kentucky forward Jarred Vanderbilt, the 41st pick in this year's NBA Draft. Vanderbilt missed 17 games last season for the Wildcats due to a combination of foot and ankle injuries, but he showed promise as a rebounder and passer during his time on the court. However, Vanderbilt's jump shot is a complete work in progress and his limited ability on the offensive end lowers his value in redraft formats. Expect Vanderbilt to spend a ton of time in the G-League and to see just spot-starter minutes for the Nuggets over the course of the season. If his shooting can become passable, he projects to join the Nuggets rotation in future seasons, but expecting that result right off the bat is just setting fantasy players up for disappointment.
