3/22/2015 9:25:00 PM
Description: Timberwolves center Gorgui Dieng led Minnesota with 16 ponts on Sunday versus the Hornets.
Insight: No one stood out statistically for Minnesota, so Dieng was probably the best fantasy player for the Timberwolves. He was 5-of-8 from the field with eight rebounds, one assist and a block. He was also 6-for-6 at the line.
 
3/19/2015 10:33:00 PM

Insight: Dieng was 9-of-10 from the field on his way to 19 points and also had 11 rebounds. Additionally, Dieng had six blocks, two steals and an assist. Dieng is becoming a must-start as he has been filling the stat sheet very nicely in the last five games.

Description: Timberwolves center Gorgui Dieng recorded a double-double during Friday's loss to the Thunder.
Insight: He had 20 points and 14 boards, along with three assists, two steals, three blocks, and five turnovers. Dieng is worthy of a roster spot, but expect his production to be somewhat inconsistent.
 
Hot2/21/2015 10:57:00 AM
Description: Timberwolves center Gorgui Dieng could see playing time at PF if Anthony Bennett's leg injury keeps him on the sidelines.

Insight: The good news for fantasy owners is that Dieng continues to start even with Nikola Pekovic back with the starters as well. Dieng also had six points, two assists, three blocks, one steal, and two turnovers in 36 minutes of action. He is still worthy of a roster spot.
 
1/23/2015 10:51:00 PM
Description: Timberwolves center Gorgui Dieng had 14 points and 15 rebounds during Friday's loss against thee Pelicans.

Description: Timberwolves center Gorgui Dieng recorded a double-double Friday (14-13), his third in the last five games.
Insight: his numbers in 20 starts are getting close to double-double territory (9.9 ppg, 7.9 rpg) and he should continue to get starts ad Nikola Pekovic (wrist, ankle) will miss more time.

12/1/2014 11:32:00 AM
Description: Minnesota center Gorgui Dieng has been getting 30-plus minutes per night with Nikola Pekovic sidelined and should continue at that level in Monday's game.
Insight: When Dieng gets his minutes he can give you plenty of rebounding, but is an inconsistent scorer.
 
11/28/2014 1:23:00 PM
Description: Minnesota center Gorgui Dieng has been getting 30-plus minutes per night with Nikola Pekovic sidelined.
Insight: Until the last game with Milwaukee, Dieng had played well in his substitute role. He averaged 10.2 ppg and 9.7 rpg in the previous four contests making him a underrated fantasy option.
 
4/9/2014 9:42:00 AM
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.
 
Hot3/26/2014 10:10:00 PM
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.
