Nov. 12 10:33 PM PT11:33 PM MT12:33 AM CT1:33 AM ET6:33 GMT14:33 11:33 PM MST1:33 AM EST10:33 UAE07:331:33 ET12:33 AM CTNaN:� - Taj Gibson scored 16 points Saturday, going 6 of 11 from the field, as the Minnesota Timberwolves lost to the Phoenix Suns 118-110. Gibson pulled down 11 rebounds and did not have an assist, tallying a plus-minus of -5 in his 36:44 of playing time. He tacked on two steals.
Analysis: Gibson saw a season high in minutes on a night key reserve Gorgui Dieng was unavailable and responded with his fourth double-double in five games. The reliable forward is averaging a pretty solid 12.2 points, 10 rebounds and 1.4 steals during that time frame.
Nov. 9 10:44 PM PT11:44 PM MT12:44 AM CT1:44 AM ET6:44 GMT14:44 11:44 PM MST1:44 AM EST10:44 UAE07:441:44 ET12:44 AM CTNaN:� - Taj Gibson scored 14 points Wednesday on 5-of-10 shooting as the Minnesota Timberwolves lost to the Golden State Warriors 125-101. Gibson pulled down seven rebounds and did not have an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of -3 in his 26:37 on the floor.
Analysis: Gibson has quietly averaged close to a double-double this month, having put up 11.3 points and 9.8 rebounds through the first four games of November. With a secure role in Minnesota's rotation, the Tom Thibodeau favorite should have a chance to maintain that pace if he can stay healthy.
Nov. 6 9:56 PM PT10:56 PM MT11:56 PM CT12:56 AM ET5:56 GMT13:56 10:56 PM MST12:56 AM EST9:56 UAE06:560:56 ET11:56 PM CTNaN:� - Taj Gibson scored eight points Sunday, going 4 of 9 from the field, as the Minnesota Timberwolves topped the Charlotte Hornets 112-94. Gibson grabbed 10 rebounds and did not have an assist, tallying a plus-minus of +15 in his 28:59 of playing time. He tacked on one steal.
Analysis: That's now three straight games with double-digit rebounds for Gibson, who posted double-doubles in the previous two. The 32-year-old is still averaging just 8.7 points per game for the season, so he's more of a fantasy target for boards and steals.
Nov. 5 10:05 PM PT11:05 PM MT12:05 AM CT1:05 AM ET6:05 GMT14:05 11:05 PM MST1:05 AM EST10:05 UAE07:051:05 ET12:05 AM CTNaN:� - Taj Gibson scored 12 points Saturday, going 5 of 8 from the field, as the Minnesota Timberwolves topped the Dallas Mavericks 112-99. Gibson grabbed 10 rebounds and had four assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +10 in his 30:35 of playing time. He added two blocks and two steals.
Analysis: Gibson has now picked up two straight double-doubles after delivering mostly uninspiring numbers through the season's first seven games. Since the veteran is a Tom Thibodeau favorite and the Timberwolves are starting to come together as a unit, his fantasy stock is on the rise even though his ceiling isn't particularly high.

July 8 11:44 AM PT12:44 PM MT1:44 PM CT2:44 PM ET18:44 GMT2:44 11:44 AM MST1:44 PM EST22:44 UAE20:4414:44 ET1:44 PM CTNaN:� - Gibson was arrested for a traffic violation in New York City. The New York Police Department says a 2016 Mercedes Benz sedan made an illegal U-turn in Queens early Thursday. Police stopped the car and Gibson, who was driving, produced a suspended Illinois driver's license.
Analysis: Gibson recently agreed to a two-year, $28 million contract to play in Minnesota. The deal reunites the 32-year-old power forward with Tom Thibodeau, who coached him for five seasons in Chicago.
July 2 8:54 AM PT9:54 AM MT10:54 AM CT11:54 AM ET15:54 GMT23:54 8:54 AM MST10:54 AM EST19:54 UAE17:5411:54 ET10:54 AM CTNaN:� - Gibson has agreed to a two-year, $28 million contract with the Timberwolves.
Analysis: The eight-year veteran gets a reunion with Wolves coach Tom Thibodeau, whom he played under for five seasons in Chicago. Gibson has only averaged 9.4 points per game during his career, but he's a solid rebounder who should help bolster Minnesota on the defensive end, a glaring weakness for the Timberwolves last season.
