Description: Minnesota center Gorgui Dieng is quietly becoming a fantasy super-hero. Tuesday was his fourth 15-rebound game in his last 11 appearances.
Insight: Certainly none of this would be possible if Nikola Pekovic were healthy. But because he's not, the opportunistic Dieng (12 points, 15 rebounds on Tuesday) is quickly approaching must-start status. Give him a look Wednesday against Chicago.

Description: T-Wolves center Gorgui Dieng was at it again Wednesday against the Hawks.
Insight: In 41 minutes, he compiled 15 points, 15 rebounds and two assists. The 24-year-old out of Louisville has collected ten or more boards in five of his last six contests. Until Nikola Pekovic returns from his ankle injury, Dieng should be starting in all fantasy leagues.

Description: Minnesota center Gorgui Dieng continued his rebounding binge with 17 boards Monday in a loss to Memphis.
Insight: Dieng is making the most of his opportunity. In five games with Nikola Pekovic sidelined by an ankle injury, Dieng has averaged 12.2 ppg and 13.8 rpg. If he's still on the waiver wire in your league, now would be the time to pick him up.

Description: Out of nowhere, Wolves center Gorgui Dieng came through with 22 points and 21 rebounds Thursday against Houston.
Insight: Dieng got the start at center in place of Nikola Pekovic (ankle). A 42.4 percent free throw shooter on the season, Dieng miraculously made 10-of-11 from the line on Thursday. His next game is Sunday against Phoenix.
