Taurean Prince News
The Timberwolves are acquiring forward Taurean Prince from the Cavaliers in exchange for guard Ricky Rubio, a 2022 second-round draft pick, and some cash. The 27-year-old battled injuries last season and appeared in only 29 games in Cleveland after landing there from Brooklyn. He averaged 10.1 points, 3.7 boards, and shot nearly 42 percent from deep. However, he hasn't been able to match the success he had in Atlanta, where he averaged just over 14 points during the 2017-18 campaign. Although the upside is there, primarily if Prince takes on a more prominent role and stays healthy, he isn't worth much on the fantasy end at the moment.
Cleveland Cavaliers forward Taurean Prince had a great night off the bench against the Hornets on Wednesday, scoring a season-high 25 points in 29 minutes. He shot 9-for-13 from the field and did most of his damage from behind the arc, going 6-for-8 with the three-ball. Prince's night also included four rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block and six turnovers. His shooting form has been miserable all year, so it was good to see Prince finally enjoying some good rhythm. He'll be expected to lead to bench mob again on Thursday against Golden State. The Warriors give up a league-high 39.7 bench points per game, so this could be another good offensive outing for Prince.
Cleveland Cavaliers forwards Larry Nance Jr. (illness) and Taurean Prince (shoulder) are questionable to play Monday against the Utah Jazz. With Jarrett Allen (concussion) already ruled out, the Cavaliers would be very shorthanded in the frontcourt if both Prince and Nance are unable to go. Isaiah Hartenstein is set to make his Cleveland debut and would see extra minutes if Nance and Prince sit.
Cleveland Cavaliers power forward/center Kevin Love (calf) and small/power forward Taurean Prince (shoulder) will be unavailable for Monday's contest against the Kings. Love's absence will mark his fifth in a row, while Prince is on the sidelines for the seventh consecutive outing. With neither in the mix, Larry Nance Jr. stands to continue seeing a sizable workload on the glass and as a burgeoning three-point shooter. The hope was that Love would return for the second half of the year after being limited early due to a calf ailment, but the former All-Star has not shown signs of being a fantasy-relevant asset in 2020-21. The next chance that either Love or Prince will have to suit up comes Wednesday versus Chicago.
