Gibson has agreed to terms on a two-year, $28 million contract with the Timberwolves, Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gibson gets a raise, while also joining the Timberwolves on a relatively cap friendly deal, so it worked out nicely for both sides here. He's coming off season split between the Bulls and Thunder, with combined averages of 10.8 points and 6.2 rebounds across 78 games. In joining the Timberwolves, Gibson should be a veteran mentor to the young and upcoming bigs Gorgui Dieng and Karl-Anthony Towns, while also providing a capable scorer and defender in the post. That said, with Minnesota likely to give as much run as possible to their youngsters, Gibson's value may take a hit.

Gibson contributed 20 points (10-13 FG), two rebounds and one assist across 29 minutes during a 115-113 win over the Rockets on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Gibson had by far his best game of the series as his 20 points exceeded his combined total of 13 points through the first two games. After receiving 21 minutes in the first two games, he saw a slightly larger workload in Game 3. Based on the team's success in the win, it would not be a surprise if Gibson received a similar workload in Game 4.

Gibson will be rested for Tuesday's game against the Timberwolves, Kent Youngblood of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

With a playoff spot locked up, the Thunder will rest Gibson, Andre Roberson and Russell Westbrook on Tuesday. It's the first night of a back-to-back set to end the season, and at this point it's unclear whether the trio will be available for the finale Wednesday night against Denver. Expect Jerami Grant and Enes Kanter to pick up extra minutes in Gibson's place Tuesday.

Gibson (illness) will play and start in Sunday's game against the Hornets, Royce Young of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gibson was held out of Friday's game against the Spurs because of an illness, but was never expected to miss much time and has officially been cleared for a return to the court. He'll rejoin the starting five at power forward and should see a full complement of minutes, which also sends Domantas Sabonis back to the bench in the corresponding move.

Gibson (illness) is considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Hornets, Royce Young of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gibson was unable to play during Friday's loss to the Spurs due to an illness, but he returned to practice Saturday with hopes of suiting up against Charlotte on Sunday. Domantas Sabonis earned the start Friday with Gibson sidelined, so Sabonis could continue seeing an expanded role if Gibson remains out throughout the remainder of the weekend.

Gibson (illness) has officially been ruled out for Friday's matchup with the Spurs, Brett Dawson of The Oklahoman reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gibson was unable to participate in the team's morning shootaround, and was ultimately deemed a true game-time decision Friday. His absence should open up a starting spot for either Domantas Sabonis or Jerami Grant, while both figure to see increased minutes. Gibson's next chance to play will be Sunday against the Hornets.

Gibson missed shootaround due to an illness, but the team is still hoping that he can play in Friday's game against the Spurs, Brett Dawson of the Oklahoman reports.

EDGE Analysis

The illness doesn't appear to be anything too serious for Gibson, but he will likely end up being a game-time decision depending on how his health progresses throughout the day. In the event that the starting power forward is unable to play, look for either Domantas Sabonis or Jerami Grant to get the start in the frontcourt but for both to likely see extended minutes Friday.

Gibson managed 13 points (6-10 FG, 1-1 FT), six rebounds, one assist and one block across 24 minutes in Monday's 92-91 victory over the Mavericks.

EDGE Analysis

Gibson was hot early, collecting more than half of his points Monday night in the first quarter. Gibson hovers right around 20 minutes per contest, which makes it harder to trust him on a nightly basis, but he's been aggressive on the offensive end, hoisting up at least seven shots in each of the past four games. The Thunder are desperately looking for someone to take the offensive pressure off of Russell Westbrook, as Victor Oladipo and Steven Adams haven't proven to be reliable enough on that side of the floor. If Gibson continues to take shots, fantasy owners may want to give him a look as the rebounds will be there to make him more than a one-trick pony.

Gibson (hip) supplied 17 points (8-17 FG, 1-3 FT), eight rebounds, one steal and one block across 24 minutes in a 122-104 win over the Nets on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

It was an excellent homecoming for Gibson in his native Brooklyn, as the Thunder's new starting power forward shook off a hip injury to turn in his best scoring outing since joining Oklahoma City at the trade deadline. His value is trending up a bit while starting the last three games, but it doesn't appear the Thunder are willing to give Gibson major playing time, as he's failed to crack 25 minutes in any of those contests.
