Naz Reid News
Minnesota Timberwolves power forward/center Naz Reid has taken on an extended role with Karl-Anthony Towns sidelined, but he finally parlayed that increased time on the floor into a massive scoring performance Saturday, dropping a career-high 29 points versus the Thunder. Despite his prolific scoring output, Reid was unable to convert on a runner across the lane in the waning seconds of regulation, sealing the win for OKC. In just 27 minutes of action, Reid went 12-for-21 from the floor, adding six rebounds and two steals to his stat line. Should D'Angelo Russell remain sidelined for Monday's matchup with the Mavericks, Reid will likely be one of the premier DFS options on the slate as he can now make the case to be rostered on a short-term basis in all season-long formats.
Minnesota Timberwolves center Naz Reid (wrist) is expected to play on Saturday against OKC. The 21-year-old has been dealing with the ailment for quite some time but has played through it for the most part. With Karl-Anthony Towns (illness) still out after missing his previous 11 games due to COVID-19, Reid should continue to get plenty of minutes in the middle. He came one board shy of a double-double on Friday night, so fantasy managers should keep him in mind, especially if D'Angelo Russell (quad) is also out of the lineup.
Minnesota Timberwolves guard D'Angelo Russell (quad) and center Naz Reid (wrist) will start Friday against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Neither Reid nor Russell were in any danger of missing this contest, even though Russell was listed as questionable. Both players could be in line for solid performances as the Thunder only have eight active players Friday.
Minnesota Timberwolves point/shooting guard D'Angelo Russell (quadriceps) and power forward/center Naz Reid (wrist) have been given the green light to take the floor for Wednesday's contest against the Spurs. Russell's presence on the injury report of late has been perfunctory, as he has appeared in the team's past three contests as he works through a quad contusion. Reid returned in Minnesota's most recent outing to play just 13 minutes off the bench, paving the way for Ed Davis to see increased fantasy intrigue while Karl-Anthony Towns remains sidelined. With Russell in the mix, Ricky Rubio will head the second unit, a role that has not led to fantasy relevance.
