FanDuel Fantasy Points Per Game More DFS

Timberwolves' Josh Okogie (hamstring) still sidelined, could play Thursday

Minnesota Timberwolves shooting guard Josh Okogie (left hamstring) will remain out Tuesday versus the Denver Nuggets.

What It Means:

Timberwolves head coach Ryan Saunders is hopeful that Okogie will be available for Thursday's game against the Portland Trail Blazers. Tuesday will be Okogie's fourth consecutive absence. His return will likely cut into Juan Hernangomez and Jarrett Culver's minutes, though it's unclear how it will impact the starting lineup. Saunders has used five different lineups through six games and Malik Beasley has been the only player to start in every game for Minnesota.

Per numberFire's NBA Heat Map, the Timberwolves have the second-lowest implied total (107.75 points) on Tuesday's five-game slate. Our models believe Ricky Rubio is the best value on the roster and at his position Tuesday, with a projection of 27 FanDuel points and a salary of $4,500.
