Insight: Young was the first player to receive clearance from the deadline deals, so he may be the only player suiting up for his new team Friday. He can be safely put back into all fantasy lineups.

Description: Timberwolves forward Thaddeus Young led the team in scoring on Saturday.
Insight: That's not saying much as Young scored 17 points and the Timberwolves lost, 110-97, to the Warriors. Young was efficient, though, shooting 63.6 percent from the field and had six rebounds, two assists, two steals and a block.
12/27/2014 9:50:00 AM
Description: Timberwolves forward Thaddeus Young led the team with 23 points and added six rebounds, four assists and a pair of steals.
Insight: Young had a solid all-around fantasy day even his free-throw shooting (3-of-4). He's just a bit too inconsistent for fantasy owners as his last five scoring totals indicate (29, 13, 8, 13, 23).
12/16/2014 9:27:00 PM

Insight: Young missed time due to the passing of his mother. He's seeing almost 32 mpg and averaging 14.3 ppg, 5.0 rpg, 1.6 apg, 1.6 spg. That's not quite as good as last season, but its a new team and it takes time to adapt.
11/2/2014 12:46:00 PM
Description: Timberwolves forward Thaddeus Young was tested for a concussion after colliding with Jimmy Butler in Saturday's game.
Insight: Young passed all his tests and should be ready to go. He's going to see a lot of minutes this season and should be a solid fantasy option. He's currently averaging 17.7 ppg, 3.3 rpg, 2.7 apg, 1.7 spg.

10/18/2014 10:55:00 AM
Description: Timberwolves forward Thaddeus Young will look to be a big-time player during his first year in Minnesota.
Insight: Young had a very nice season in Philadelphia in 2013-14, and will have the opportunity to duplicate his some of his numbers (17.9 PPG, 6.0 RPG, 2.1 SPG) with the Timberwolves. He should be targeted starting in the late fourth round.
8/23/2014 2:59:00 PM
Description: The Timberwolves have acquired Thaddeus Young as part of a three-team trade with Cleveland and Philadelphia.
Insight: Minnesota did a good job to get Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett and Young for Kevin Love, who made it known that he was leaving in free agency anyway. Young was an underrated fantasy option last season, averaging 17.9 points, 6.0 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 1.1 threes, 2.1 steals (third in the NBA) and 0.5 blocks per game. He'll start for the 'Wolves and should be the top offensive option as the team tries to replace Love's 26.1 points and 12.5 rebounds per game.
Hot3/22/2014 10:37:00 PM
Description: With 28 points Saturday at Chicago, Philadelphia forward Thaddeus Young had his sixth straight contest with at least 20 points.

Description: Philadelphia forward Thad Young had another brilliant outing Saturday against Memphis (20 points, seven rebounds, six steals).
Insight: Of course, the result was the same as the Sixers lost for the 20th time in a row. The four three-pointers Young hit were his most since December 28th against Phoenix. It doesn't get any easier for the Sixers as their next game is Monday against the conference-leading Pacers.
