Young scored 22 points (8-20 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 6-6 FT) to go along with eight rebounds, three assists and two steals in 42 minutes Monday against the Thunder.

Young has averaged 24.0 points in his last two games starting at small forward, a role that might be a better fit for him than starting at power forward. It's unclear what rotation the Timberwolves will use once Kevin Martin (wrist) returns, so keep an eye on the situation. Young is still going to be a key part of the team, but could see his production dip some if he returns to the bulk of his minutes being at power forward.

Young started at small forward and scored 26 points, dished out seven assists and pulled down six rebounds in 43 minutes in Sunday's loss to Atlanta.

It likely doesn't matter whether he starts at small forward or power forward as he's one of the main shot taker on offense. Gorgui Dieng started at power forward with Nikola Pekovic at center. Still, Young's role could be a little in flux if Kevin Martin returns from a wrist injury this week.

The double-double was only his second of the season and the first time since the beginning of November. He's now averaging 13.7 points, 4.8 rebounds and 2.7 assists on the season. While his fantasy value may be nowhere near where it was in previous seasons, he's still worth owning.

Young scored 22 points (9-17 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 4-4 FT) with six rebounds, five assists and three steals during Saturday's win over the Nuggets.

It's been a tough season for Young, who's seen his numbers dip across the board in his first season for Minnesota. Saturday's game marks his first time reaching the 20 point mark since December 26th. With Kevin Martin's return around the corner, it will be tough for Young match last season's numbers.

Young appeared in just 25 minutes Thursday, scoring nine points (4-8 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT) and adding on two blocks, two steals, four assists and three rebounds, as the Timberwolves lost their 10th straight game to the Kings.

Young still started the game, but saw Anthony Bennett cut into some of his minutes. Bennett saw his most action since Dec. 6, and Young averaged 31.5 minutes in December. With the Timberwolves struggling, head coach Flip Saunders may be looking to mix up the lineup to try to get something going, so owners may want to continue to monitor the minutes split between Young and Bennett.

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.
