News: Wiggins (back) won't play in Tuesday's preseason game. Impact: He's still a little sore after landing on his back in Sunday's game, but it doesn't sound like anything that will hold him out for the season opener. Look for the rookie to rejoin the starting lineup either Wednesday or Friday. Corey Brewer will start Tuesday.(RotoWire, )

News: Wiggins might not play in Tuesday's preseason game after falling on his back in Sunday's exhibition against the Thunder, T-Wolves' announcer Alan Horton reports. Impact: Coach Flip Saunders said Wiggins is sore and is a 50-50 proposition for Tuesday's game. However, it doesn't sound like anything that will keep Wiggins sidelined for the season opener.(RotoWire, )

News: Wiggins scored 11 points with three rebounds and was 5-of-10 from the floor in 30 minutes in Friday's preseason win over the 76ers. Impact: Wiggins again looked impressive as he converted on several lobs from Ricky Rubio and also made his only three-point attempt. It's early in the preseason and the T-Wolves didn't have every player active, but Wiggins looks to be a focus of the Minnesota offense.(RotoWire, )

News: Wiggins finished with a game-high 18 points (4-11 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 8-10 FT), four rebounds, three assists, one steal and three blocks in 32 minutes Tuesday against the Pacers. Impact: He got the start at small forward in his first preseason game, and put together a very impressive performance. Coach Flip Saunders said he was surprised by how good Wiggins looked in his first NBA action, but it's not a surprising stat line given the fact that he led the team in minutes. It must be remembered that Kevin Martin (groin) was held out of action, but if Wiggins can carve out a role where he sees 30-plus minutes per game in his rookie season, he'll need to be drastically moved up draft boards. Unlike most rookies, his true value comes from the fact that he should be a force right away in steals and blocks, as was evident Tuesday. It was also very encouraging to see him hit both three-point attempts and get to the free-throw line 10 times.(RotoWire, )

News: Wiggins will start at small forward in Tuesday's preseason opener, the Toronto Sun's Ryan Wolstat reports. Impact: In a logical world, it would seem that the starting small forward job is his to lose, but with Kevin Martin (groin) out and Corey Brewer starting at shooting guard Tuesday, that's not guaranteed to be the case. Still, Wiggins has the most fantasy upside on the T-Wolves, and coach Flip Saunders said he'll even use Wiggins at the two and possibly the four this season, so unless he stumbles mightily, playing time shouldn't be an issue for Wiggins.(RotoWire, )
