Top Jaden McDaniels News

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Scores team-high 23 points

    McDaniels racked up 23 points (7-10 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 6-7 FT), six rebounds, one assist, one block and two steals across 40 minutes during Sunday's 98-90 victory over the Nuggets in Game 7 of the Western Conference Semifinals.

    McDaniels scored 20-plus points for the second straight game, helping the Timberwolves to an impressive victory in Game 7. Although his offensive output can be inconsistent, he has been a little more reliable during the postseason. Coming up against the Mavericks in the Western Conference Finals, McDaniels is going to have to maintain his offensive mindset to contend with the likes of Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Excels in Game 6 victory

    McDaniels notched 21 points (8-10 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, one assist, two blocks and one steal over 30 minutes during Thursday's 115-70 victory over Denver in Game 6 of the Western Conference Semifinals.

    McDaniels is not known for his scoring ability and often gets recognition for his defensive work. Still, he stood out when it mattered the most in this series and finished as Minnesota's second-highest scorer. McDaniels is not expected to hover around the 20-point mark regularly going forward, but this was an excellent showing in a game during which his team needed him to step up. In fact, this was McDaniels' second-best scoring output in the current playoff run, as he scored 25 points in the Game 2 win over the Suns in the first round.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Erupts for team-high 25 points

    McDaniels ended Tuesday's 105-93 win over the Suns in Game 2 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals with 25 points (10-17 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), eight rebounds, three assists and one steal across 41 minutes.

    McDaniels shone in the victory, leading all scorers with 25 points. Known for his defensive abilities, it was on the offensive end that he did his damage. He was part of a balanced effort by the Timberwolves, taking down the Suns to establish a 2-0 series lead.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Ties career high in loss

    McDaniels provided 26 points (9-13 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 4-7 FT), six rebounds, two blocks and one steal in 38 minutes during Tuesday's 115-112 loss to the Nuggets.

    The Timberwolves need nights like this from McDaniels if they hope to keep pace in the Western Conference. The Washington product is the best chance for the team to make up for Karl-Anthony Towns' (knee) absence, but he's struggled to stay consistent. The issue is exacerbated by Rudy Gobert's (ribs) absence, but McDaniels' effort shows that he is capable of shouldering a heavy load if shots are falling his way.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Sees 33 minutes

    McDaniels ended Monday's 114-104 victory over Utah with nine points (4-13 FG, 1-5 3Pt), eight rebounds, one assist, two blocks and one steal across 33 minutes.

    Rudy Gobert (ribs) was sidelined and Naz Reid left this game early with a head injury, so McDaniels saw expanded minutes. His struggles continued, however, as he hasn't been able to generate much offensively in March. In his last nine appearances, McDaniels has shot 40.2 percent from the field and 22.9 percent from beyond the arc.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Poor shooting effort Sunday

    McDaniels ended with 10 points (5-17 FG, 0-5 3Pt), six rebounds, one assist and two steals in 32 minutes during Sunday's 120-109 loss to the Lakers.

    With Karl-Anthony Towns (knee), Rudy Gobert (hamstring) and Kyle Anderson (shoulder) sidelined, McDaniels failed to take advantage of extra opportunities and needed 17 shots to score 10 points. The defensive-minded forward should continue to get more offensive looks, but his poor shooting may mitigate any boost in fantasy value.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Drops season-high 26 in loss

    McDaniels closed Friday's 124-120 overtime loss to Sacramento with 26 points (9-11 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 3-4 FT), seven rebounds and one assist over 45 minutes.

    The fourth-year forward wound up leading Minnesota in scoring on the night, in part due to Anthony Edwards (personal) leaving the game at halftime. McDaniels set new season highs in points and made three-pointers, and Friday's performance was the first time since Jan. 17 he'd topped 20 points. Despite a fairly consistent role in the rotation, the 23-year-old's production has been anything but -- in 12 games since the beginning of February he's scored in single digits six times, including a goose egg against the Trail Blazers on Feb. 13.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Turns in 17 points

    McDaniels closed with 17 points (6-11 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five rebounds, one assist and two steals across 28 minutes during Thursday's 128-91 win over Portland.

    McDaniels' value as a fantasy target is a variance-filled proposition, as his numbers fluctuate nightly. He scored nine points in the first quarter, and Minnesota's 44-14 lead marked the most lopsided quarter of the season. The Timberwolves are running hot with four straight wins, and despite some rocky numbers, McDaniels has value as a consistent starter with the first unit.
