Description: Minnesota forward Anthony Bennett is doubtful for Saturday's game against Golden State with a sprained ankle.
Insight: Bennett has missed the past four games, but the Timberwolves have a lot of guys missing up front, so its hard to predict who will shine. Kevin Garnett, Nikola Pekovic and Gorgui Dieng are also hurting.
 
2/21/2015 3:52:00 PM
Description: Minnesota forward Anthony Bennett started at power forward on Friday versus the Suns, but injured his right leg and has been downgraded to out for Monday's game against Houston.
Insight: Bennett's time will go to Gorgui Dieng who had 15 points and 12 rebounds in 38 minutes after the injury to Bennett.

Description: Minnesota forward Anthony Bennett started at power forward on Friday versus the Suns, but injured his right leg and is questionable for Monday's game against Houston.
Insight: Bennett's time will go to Gorgui Dieng who had 15 points and 12 rebounds in 38 minutes after the injury to Bennett.
 
2/20/2015 7:06:00 PM
Description: Minnesota forward Anthony Bennett will start at power forward on Friday versus the Suns.
Insight: Bennett has played only 13.0 minutes per game in the last two contests, so Bennett owners are pleased with this move. He should see quite a bit of action against the Suns.
 
12/7/2014 10:12:00 AM
Description: Minnesota forward Anthony Bennett produced a double-double off the bench on Saturday night.
Insight: He was 6-of-11 from the field and 2-of-2 from the line for 14 points, 10 rebounds, two assists, and one steal. Bennett is still not a reliable option, as he is averaging 7.3 ppg and 3.8 rpg.
 
10/21/2014 10:40:00 PM
Description: Minnesota forward Anthony Bennett came off the bench to score 20 points on Friday versus the Spurs.
Insight: Bennett shot 9-for-14 from the field. He didn't do much else, though, with three rebounds, three steals and one assist.
 
10/18/2014 11:18:00 AM
Description: Minnesota forward Anthony Bennett came off the bench to score 20 points on Friday versus the Spurs.
Insight: Bennett shot 9-for-14 from the field. He didn't do much else, though, with three rebounds, three steals and one assist.
 
8/23/2014 2:56:00 PM
Description: Anthony Bennett, the 2013 No. 1 overall pick, has been traded from the Cavaliers to the Timberwolves.
Insight: The initially rumored version of the three-team trade had Minnesota shipping Bennett to Philadelphia for Thaddeus Young, but the Timberwolves were able to snag Young for just Alexey Shved and Luc Mbah a Moute. Unfortunately, that means Bennett will be behind Young at power forward rather than starting for talent-starved Philadelphia. He should get his fair share of minutes but probably won't have much fantasy value.
 
7/13/2014 8:27:00 PM
Description: According to cleveland.com, Cavaliers forward Anthony Bennett now weighs 240 pounds.
Insight: Bennett weighed in at 259 last season and may have been even heavier than that at times. The 2013 No. 1 overall pick averaged just 12.8 minutes, 4.2 points and 3.0 rebounds in 52 games as a rookie. He'll likely be traded if the Cavs pursue Kevin Love, and joining a Love-less Minnesota would be good for his fantasy value.
 
3/10/2014 3:13:00 PM
Description: Cavs forward Anthony Bennett suffered a strained left patellar tendon and will miss about three weeks. SOURCE: NBA.com
Insight: Bennett (4.1 ppg, 2.9 rpg) has shown some flashes of talent, but not enough to get the attention of fantasy owners. Spencer Hawes and Tristan Thompson will start at center and power forward for the forseeable future with Anderson Varejao and Tyler Zeller as the two backups.
 
3/1/2014 9:09:00 PM
Description: Cavs forward Anthony Bennett will be in uniform Saturday against Memphis. SOURCE: Cleveland Plain Dealer
Insight: That doesn't necessarily mean that he'll get in the game. Bennett missed Friday's game with a knee issue and he could do the same tonight. With Spencer Hawes (13.1 ppg, 8.7 rpg) eating up most of his minutes at power forward, Bennett is back to being a fantasy non-factor.
 
3/1/2014 12:15:00 PM
Description: Cavaliers forward Anthony Bennett is dealing with soreness in his right knee and din't play Friday but is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against Memphis.
Insight: Bennett has played just 13.7 minutes per game over the last five games due to the acquisition of Spencer Hawes. He'll play even less when Anderson Varejao returns and shouldn't be owned in any leagues.
 
2/28/2014 7:26:00 PM
Description: Cavaliers forward Anthony Bennett is dealing with soreness in his right knee and won't play Friday against the Jazz.
Insight: Bennett had a decent run with averages of 21.1 minutes, 8.7 points and 5.4 rebounds from Jan. 28 to Feb. 18, but he has played just 13.7 minutes per game over the last five games due to the acquisition of Spencer Hawes. He'll play even less when Anderson Varejao returns and shouldn't be owned in any leagues.
 
2/18/2014 9:55:00 PM
Description: Cavaliers forward Anthony Bennett chipped in with ten points and 11 rebounds Tuesday in a lopsided win over Philadelphia.
Insight: Bennett, the guy we were calling the worst No. 1 pick in human history a few weeks ago, now has two double-doubles in his last three games. Bennett is improving but he still isn't ready to carry your fantasy team.
 
2/11/2014 9:36:00 PM
Description: Cavs rookie Anthony Bennett had a career-high 19 points, 10 rebounds and three threes in 30 minutes Tuesday against Sacramento.
Insight: Bennett actually has looked like a competent NBA player lately, averaging 9.4 points and 5.1 rebounds per game in his last eight games, of which Anderson Varejao missed four. Bennett has scored double-digit points four times in that span after failing to do it once in his first 32 games. Bennett is still a Varejao long-term injury or trade away from fantasy relevance.
 
1/28/2014 9:36:00 PM
Description: Cavs rookie Anthony Bennett recorded double-digit points for the first time in his career Tuesday in a loss to New Orleans.
Insight: Bennett finished with 15 points on 5-of-10 shooting. The eight rebounds he corralled tied a season-high. The No. 1 pick in last year's draft had been a coach's decision DNP in six of his previous seven games before tonight's breakout performance.
 
12/23/2013 5:28:00 PM
Description: Cavaliers forward Anthony Bennett (illness) is available for Monday's game.
Insight: The No. 1 overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft is averaging 2.2 ppg and 2.0 rpg while shooting a pitiful 27.7 percent from the field.
 
12/21/2013 11:06:00 AM
Description: Cavaliers forward Anthony Bennett (illness) did not make the trip to Chicago with the team and likely won't play.
Insight: The No. 1 overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft is averaging 2.2 ppg and 2.0 rpg. Oops!
 
12/20/2013 6:44:00 PM
Description: Cavaliers forward Anthony Bennett (illness) will miss Friday's game, according to Bob Finnan of news-herald.com.
Insight: The No. 1 overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft has been a disaster this season, playing just 10 minutes per game and averaging 2.2 ppg on 27.7 percent shooting. He's yet to score in double figures in 20 games.
 
Cold11/8/2013 8:35:00 PM
Description: Cavaliers forward Anthony Bennett sprained his right shoulder during Friday's game and will not return, according to Jason Lloyd of the Akron Beacon Journal.
Insight: Bennett tried to take Philadelphia's Brandon Davies off the dribble, lost his footing and slammed into the 76ers power forward with his right shoulder in the first quarter Friday. The No. 1 overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft had surgery on his left shoulder back in May and it put him way behind in his conditioning for the 2013-14 season. He can ill afford another injury after starting off 1-for-20 from the field in his first six NBA games.
