Top Nickeil Alexander-Walker News

  • Timberwolves' Nickeil Alexander-Walker: Scores 13 points off bench Friday

    Alexander-Walker recorded 13 points (5-9 FG, 3-3 3Pt), one rebound, one assist and one block over 15 minutes during Friday's 112-107 loss to the Bucks.

    Alexander-Walker has struggled with consistency on a game-to-game basis, and although that's not surprising given he's made a name for himself as a streaky scorer, he seems to be trending in the right direction. Firmly entrenched as a scoring alternative in Minnesota's second unit, Alexander-Walker has scored in double digits in three of his last four games, and he might be worth a look in deeper formats if he can sustain this over a long stretch. That said, his upside is also capped since Mike Conley and Anthony Edwards are firmly entrenched as the starting backcourt for Minnesota.

  • Timberwolves' Nickeil Alexander-Walker: Post 18 points from bench

    Alexander-Walker chipped in 18 points (6-7 FG, 5-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three rebounds, two assists and one block in 26 minutes during Tuesday's 121-109 win over Portland.

    Alexander-Walker platooned with Mike Conley and finished with a much better number than his teammate thanks to a red-hot performance beyond the arc. It was one of the Virginia Tech product's best games of the season, and his contributions could increase if Conley continues to struggle. However, Monte Morris could also factor into the backcourt rotation more once he gets acclimated to his new squad.

The fifth-year guard is averaging 11.7 points, 4.7 assists, 3.0 boards, 2.7 threes and 1.0 steals over 31.3 minutes in those three starts, giving Alexander-Walker some DFS appeal if Conley continues to miss time.

    Alexander-Walker shifted into the starting lineup Monday, replacing Mike Conley, who was ruled out due to a hamstring issue. Alexander-Walker made the most of the promotion, scoring a season-high 18 points, rewarding anyone who managed to stream him in following the Conley news.

  • Timberwolves' Nickeil Alexander-Walker: Coming off bench

    Alexander-Walker will come off the bench Thursday versus the Mavericks.

    Anthony Edwards will return from his hip issue Thursday, and Jaden McDaniels is back after missing eight games with an ankle injury. Alexander-Walker will almost certainly lose some fantasy appeal with this news, but he'll likely be a key contributor for the second unit going forward.

  • Timberwolves' Nickeil Alexander-Walker: All-around performance in win

    Alexander-Walker logged a season-high 20 points (8-16 FG, 4-8 3Pt), seven assists, five rebounds, five steals and two blocks over 36 minutes in Thursday's 101-90 victory over the Jazz.

In those five starts, Alexander-Walker is averaging 9.0 points, 3.4 assists, 3.0 rebounds, 1.6 steals and 0.8 blocks across 29.4 minutes. As Edwards (questionable for Saturday) and Jaden McDaniels (ankle) continue to miss time, Alexander-Walker will likely see extended minutes and more starts until they return.

  • Timberwolves' Nickeil Alexander-Walker: Solid performance in start

    Alexander-Walker contributed seven points (3-6 FG, 1-4 3Pt), six rebounds, four assists and one block across 29 minutes during Wednesday's 112-99 victory over the 76ers.

    Alexander-Walker was inserted into the starting five with Jaden McDaniels (ankle) expected to be sidelined for multiple weeks. While Alexander-Walker didn't see a sizeable usage increase, he contributed on both ends and didn't commit a turnover. Fantasy managers should still consider adding Alexander-Walker, with Kyle Anderson making for a decent pickup option as well. When seeing at least 24 minutes last season, Alexander-Walker averaged 13.8 points, 4.1 rebounds, 3.6 assists, 1.2 steals and 0.8 blocks.

    Alexander-Walker racked up 11 points (4-8 FG, 3-6 3Pt), three rebounds and three assists across 33 minutes during Monday's 117-100 victory over New York.

    Alexander-Walker delivered his best scoring output of the season, and it's worth noting he has scored in double figures in three of his last five appearances. The backup guard saw increased playing time in the second half of Monday's contest after Jaden McDaniels (ankle) left early, and if the latter is forced to miss additional time, the former could slide into the starting lineup for a few games.

    Alexander-Walker set season highs in made three-pointers and points. The defensive-minded guard has carved out a solid secondary role in Minnesota's backcourt, but his production hasn't been worthy of consideration in most fantasy formats. At best, Alexander-Walker is a streaming option for managers in need of defensive production in category leagues.
