Thaddeus Young F MIN 8 Days

Young scored a season-high 29 points Tuesday (12-19 FG, 5-12 FT) in a loss to the Wizards.

The real storyline was Young's awful free-throw shooting. As a team, the Timberwolves shot just 57.1 percent from the charity stripe against the Wiz. Still, owners have to be happy with Young's scoring output. Young spread himself out elsewhere in the box score, grabbing four rebounds and picking up two assists and two steals in 35 minutes.

Young had a dud in Sunday's game against the Lakers, posting just eight points, six rebounds, four assists, and one steal in 35 minutes of action.

Young didn't get many opportunities to score despite playing 35 minutes, but was still able to contribute in other categories. He hasn't been playing as well this season compared to expectations, but he's still worth owning in all leagues regardless.

He was away from the team for five games after his mother passed away, and Young's focus understandably seemed lacking once he returned to action. You may want to wait until he looks more like his usual self before inserting Young back into your lineup.

Young (personal) will remain away from the team until Sunday, Jerry Zgoda of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports.

Young's mother passed away last week, and he's been away from the team for the past two games. With Minnesota playing Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, Young will miss at three more games, joining Nikola Pekovic, who is dealing with a wrist injury. Assuming Young does return to the team Sunday, he would appear to be on track to play Wednesday against the Bucks.

It's certainly a terrible situation in Young's personal life, and he will be given all the time he needs to grieve away from the team. Anthony Bennett and Gorgui Dieng figure to see extend run in Young's absence.

Young played his most minutes of the season Friday against the Magic, scoring 13 points (6-15 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 0-2 FT).

Young has now logged a combined 75 minutes in his past two games. Anthony Bennett played in less than a minute Friday while Young pulled down four rebounds and tacked on an assist and a steal. Young owners should feel optimistic about his playing time going forward with the Timberwolves.

Young (concussion) was able to play 36 minutes while putting up 10 points (5-13 FG), 11 rebounds, three steals, and two blocks Wednesday against the Nets.

Young suffered a neck strain during Saturday's game against the Bulls but was able to pass all concussion tests to ultimately play Wednesday. He had a sub-par shooting night against the Nets but should be deployed as usual since he made a successful return.
