Description: Timberwolves forward Shabazz Muhammad will undergo surgery on his finger and miss the rest of the season.
Insight: This is a tough blow for Muhammad, who showed signs of improvement this season, averaging 13.5 ppg and 4.1 rpg. He was able to play on Friday, which apparently was not a good idea. Muhammad should be ready to go for training camp.
 
2/21/2015 3:49:00 PM
Description: Timberwolves forward Shabazz Muhammad won't play Monday against Houston after playing 13 minutes Friday night.
Insight: Muhammad is still dealing with the finger issue. Ignore him until he's 100 percent.
 
2/7/2015 2:58:00 PM
Description: Timberwolves forward Shabazz Muhammad won't play Saturday, but is expected to return Monday, according to head coach Flip Saunders.
Insight: Muhammad had been playing pretty well, averaging 13.7 ppg, 4.0 rpg, 1.2 apg and 15.6 ppg in 13 starts, but with the return of Kevin Martin and Ricky Rubio and the solid play of Andrew Wiggins, Muhammad might not see as much playing time as earlier this season. Take a wait and see approach.
 
2/4/2015 11:28:00 AM
Description: Timberwolves forward Shabazz Muhammad won't play Wednesday, but is hoping to return Friday against Memphis.
Insight: Muhammad had been playing pretty well, averaging 13.7 ppg, 4.0 rpg, 1.2 apg and 15.6 ppg in 13 starts, but with the return of Kevin Martin and Ricky Rubio and the play of Andrew Wiggins, Muhammad might not see as much playing time as earlier this season.
 
1/12/2015 2:36:00 PM
Description: Timberwolves forward Shabazz Muhammad is expected to miss a couple of weeks due to an abdominal strain.
Insight: Muhammad had been playing pretty well this season, averaging 13.7 ppg, 4.0 rpg, 1.2 apg and 15.6 ppg in 13 starts. He's up almost 10 ppg from last season.
 
1/11/2015 10:38:00 AM
Description: Timberwolves forward Shabazz Muhammad is questionable for Tuesday's game against Indiana due to an abdominal issue.
Insight: Muhammad has been playing pretty well this season, averaging 13.7 ppg, 4.0 rpg, 1.2 apg and 15.6 ppg in 13 starts. He's up almost 10 ppg from last season.
 
12/31/2014 1:28:00 PM
Description: Timberwolves forward Shabazz Muhammad scored a team-high 30 points against the Jazz.
Insight: Muhammad tends to have these scoring bursts on occasion. He scored 28 points on Dec. 14 and 26 points on Dec. 19. He also scored 28 points in a game back in November, but 30 points is a season-high. We still, however, don't see Muhammad repeating Tuesday's performance enough to become fantasy relevant. His 5-for-6 from the 3-point line led to the season-high and that will not be repeated routinely.
 
12/19/2014 9:39:00 PM
Description: Timberwolves forward Shabazz Muhammad scored a team-high 26 points during Friday's loss to the Celtics.
Insight: He was 11-of-15 from the floor and 2-of-2 from the line. Muhammad also had five assists, five rebounds, two 3-pointers, and two turnovers. He needs to be owned everywhere with Corey Brewer being shipped to Houston.
 
12/19/2014 4:37:00 PM
Description: Timberwolves forward Shabazz Muhammad should see an increase in playing time with the departure of Corey Brewer.
Insight: He had already been playing well of late, as he scored at least 18 points in six of his past nine games. Muhammad is definitely worthy of a waiver wire flier.
 
12/8/2014 2:22:00 PM
Description: Timberwolves rookie Shabazz Muhammad is questionable for Monday's game against Golden State due to a sore ankle.
Insight: He expected to get an MRI today after dealing with the pain for about a week. He's posted back-to-back 20-point games so this comes at a horrible time.
 
12/7/2014 10:15:00 AM
Description: Timberwolves rookie Shabazz Muhammad scored 20 points off the bench during Saturday's loss against San Antonio.
Insight: He did so on 7-of-12 shooting from the field, along with going 5-of-9 from the line. Muhammad also chipped in three rebounds and one 3-pointer. He is averaging 10.8 ppg and 3.4 rpg, making him a poor option.
 
4/5/2014 1:18:00 PM
Description: Timberwolves rookie Shabazz Muhammad injured a knee in Friday's game and is questionable for Saturday's game against Orlando.
Insight: Muhammad has no fantasy value even when healthy so this shouldn't change much. Corey Brewer should see a couple of extra minutes.
 
11/22/2013 4:22:00 PM
Description: Timberwolves rookie Shabazz Muhammad (ankle) is expected to play Friday, according to Nate Sandell of 1500espn.com.
Insight: Sandell said Muhammad didn't seem to be having any ankle issues during Friday's shootaround. The rookie has played just 20 minutes over four games so far and shouldn't be owned in any fantasy leagues at the moment.
 
11/19/2013 10:55:00 AM
Description: Wolves guard Shabazz Muhammad is questionable for Tuesday's game against Washington with a sprained right ankle.
Insight: He practiced on Monday, but isn't near 100 percent, according to beat reporter Nate Sadell. Muhammad doesn't see enough playing time to be on any fantasy radars.
 
8/7/2013 8:01:00 PM
Description: Wolves guard Shabazz Muhammad was sent home early from the NBA's Rookie Transition Program in New Jersey after bringing a female guest back to his hotel room. SOURCE: USA Today
Insight: He'll also pay a fine. None of the rookies attending the seminar are allowed to bring unauthorized guests back to their rooms. Muhammad is no stranger to controversy. He briefly lost his eligiblity at UCLA last season after being accused of receiving improper benefits. He was re-instated three games later. Mario Chalmers and Michael Beasley were involved in a similar incident when they attended the Rookie Transition Program together in 2008.
