Top Kyle Anderson News

  • Timberwolves' Kyle Anderson: Low minutes continue

    Anderson finished with six points (3-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt), two rebounds, four assists, one block and one steal across 17 minutes during Sunday's 111-90 victory over Houston.

    Anderson's role has been trending in the wrong direction for a couple of weeks. He's now seen fewer than 20 minutes in six consecutive games, averaging 4.5 points, 3.3 assists and 2.8 rebounds. There's been nothing to indicate that this trend will change.

  • Timberwolves' Kyle Anderson: Facilitates effectively

    Anderson logged five points (1-2 FG, 3-3 FT), four rebounds and eight assists across 21 minutes during Monday's 128-125 loss to the Hornets. He had just one turnover.

    Anderson continues to be a non-existent offensive threat, compiling just 29 three-point attempts across his 43 appearances this season. That being said, his facilitation was much-needed Monday, with Mike Conley (rest/hamstring) inactive and Karl-Anthony Towns tunnel-visioning his way to 62 points (21-35 FG). Anderson is averaging 5.6 points, 2.4 rebounds and 5.4 assists in 20.8 minutes per game across his last five appearances -- which is realistic production to expect moving forward.

  • Timberwolves' Kyle Anderson: Moves to bench

    Anderson will return to the bench for Friday's game against the Trail Blazers.

    Rudy Gobert (hip) is back from a one-game absence, so this is an expected move. Anderson gave the Timberwolves one of his best performances of the season Wednesday versus Boston, scoring 17 points with eight rebounds, five assists, one block and one steal over 39 minutes.

  • Timberwolves' Kyle Anderson: Season-high outing in start

    Anderson had 17 points (7-12 FG, 3-4 FT), eight rebounds, five assists, one block and one steal over 39 minutes during Wednesday's 127-120 overtime loss to the Celtics.

    Anderson got the starting nod with both Mike Conley (rest) and Rudy Gobert (hip) out of the starting five, setting a season high in scoring while finishing two boards short of the double-digit mark and adding a handful of assists. Anderson has tallied at least 10 points and five assists in three games this year, hauling in eight or more boards in three contests.

  • Timberwolves' Kyle Anderson: Starting sans Gobert

    Anderson will start Wednesday's game against Boston.

    Mike Conley (rest) and Rudy Gobert (hip) are sidelined, so Nickeil Alexander-Walker and Anderson will slide into the starting lineup. In his only previous start this season, Anderson posted 10 points, five rebounds, five assists and one block in 29 minutes.

  • Timberwolves' Kyle Anderson: Provides spark off bench

    Anderson had 11 points (4-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-4 FT), one rebound and three assists over 21 minutes during Tuesday's 113-92 victory over the Magic.

    Anderson scored his most points since Dec. 2. The veteran forward is averaging 5.8 points, 3.9 rebounds and 3.5 assists in 21.5 minutes across his last 10 appearances. However, Anderson is a non-factor from outside the arc, shooting just 16.7 percent on 0.6 three-point attempts per contest over that span.

  • Timberwolves' Kyle Anderson: Season-high rebound total in win

    Anderson notched eight points (3-8 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 10 rebounds and three assists across 27 minutes during Thursday's 118-110 victory over the Mavericks.

    Anderson led all Timberwolves bench players in rebounds and assists while ending second on the team in boards en route to a season-high total in a near double-double. Anderson has posted nine or more rebounds in two games this year and has recorded at least five points and five rebounds in 11 outings.

  • Timberwolves' Kyle Anderson: Back to bench

    Anderson will return to the bench for Tuesday's game against the Thunder, Dane Moore of 'The Dane Moore NBA Podcast' reports.

    This was an expected move with Karl-Anthony Towns (knee) back in the lineup after a one-game absence. Anderson fared well in a spot start Saturday against the Kings, scoring 10 points with five rebounds, five assists and one block in 29 minutes.

  • Timberwolves' Kyle Anderson: Starting against Kings

    Anderson will move into the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Kings.

    Karl-Anthony Towns is sitting out Saturday with knee soreness, but he's reportedly day-to-day. Anderson has yet to start a game this season, and through nine December games, he's posting averages of 6.3 points, 4.0 assists, 3.2 rebounds and 0.9 steals.

  • Timberwolves' Kyle Anderson: Plays well off bench

    Anderson had 11 points (2-6 FG, 7-7 FT), six rebounds, four assists and two steals in 26 minutes during Saturday's 123-117 victory over the Hornets.

    This was the first time that Anderson scored in double figures since Nov. 4, and he did most of his damage from the free throw line Saturday. It's no secret that Anderson has been in a slump for several weeks, but Saturday's performance was definitely a step in the right direction. Minnesota will continue to need more from Anderson if Anthony Edwards (hip) misses additional time.

  • Timberwolves' Kyle Anderson: Chips in across the board Saturday

    Anderson totaled nine points (4-7 FG, 1-2 FT), five rebounds, five assists, two blocks and one steal in 26 minutes during Saturday's 121-120 victory over New Orleans.

    Anderson played a pivotal role for the Timberwolves once again Saturday, turning in another serviceable performance. Despite his role being scaled back compared to last season, Anderson remains a key piece off the bench. He typically contributes across multiple categories on most nights, albeit on low volume. His overall upside remains limited, but even managers in standard leagues could consider him, especially if points are not high on the list of priorities.

  • Timberwolves' Kyle Anderson: Quiet in win

    Anderson ended with three points (1-6 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five rebounds, six assists and one block in 25 minutes during Monday's 114-109 overtime victory over Boston.

    Scoring will never be Anderson's best attribute in fantasy basketball, but he's generally pretty productive elsewhere. Through six games this season, Anderson is averaging 7.8 points, 4.7 assists, 4.0 rebounds and 1.2 steals.

  • Timberwolves' Kyle Anderson: All-around outing off bench in loss

    Anderson closed with seven points (3-9 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), nine rebounds, five assists and one steal across 30 minutes during Wednesday's 97-94 loss to the Raptors.

    Anderson led all Timberwolves bench players in scoring, rebounds and assists while finishing one board shy of reaching the double-digit mark in Wednesday's season-opening loss to the Raptors. Anderson, who will be a key contributor off the bench in his second season with Minnesota, is coming off a 2022-23 campaign where he averaged 9.4 points, 5.3 rebounds, 4.9 assists and 1.1 steals over 69 appearances.

  • Timberwolves' Kyle Anderson: Coming off bench Wednesday

    Anderson won't start Wednesday's game against the Raptors.

    Anderson drew the starting nod in the Timberwolves' final preseason game with Karl-Anthony Towns sidelined. However, with Towns back in action, Anderson will slide to the bench, where he should handle a significant workload.

  • Timberwolves' Kyle Anderson: Gets starting nod Thursday

    Anderson is in the starting lineup for Thursday's preseason contest against the Bulls, Alan Horton of the Timberwolves Radio Network reports.

    Anderson will get the nod at power forward over Karl-Anthony Towns (knee), though he should operate as a bench option once the regular season starts next week. That said, appearing in a starting role, even if it's in the preseason, is nothing new for Anderson, as he logged 46 starts for Minnesota during the 2022-23 season, averaging 10.5 points, 5.6 rebounds, 5.5 assists and 1.2 steals across 30.6 minutes per game.
