Description: Timberwolves center Gorgui Dieng recorded a double-double Friday (14-13), his third in the last five games.
Insight: his numbers in 20 starts are getting close to double-double territory (9.9 ppg, 7.9 rpg) and he should continue to get starts ad Nikola Pekovic (wrist, ankle) will miss more time.

Description: Minnesota center Gorgui Dieng has been getting 30-plus minutes per night with Nikola Pekovic sidelined and should continue at that level in Monday's game.
Insight: When Dieng gets his minutes he can give you plenty of rebounding, but is an inconsistent scorer.

Description: Minnesota center Gorgui Dieng has been getting 30-plus minutes per night with Nikola Pekovic sidelined.
Insight: Until the last game with Milwaukee, Dieng had played well in his substitute role. He averaged 10.2 ppg and 9.7 rpg in the previous four contests making him a underrated fantasy option.

Description: Minnesota center Gorgui Dieng is quietly becoming a fantasy super-hero. Tuesday was his fourth 15-rebound game in his last 11 appearances.
Insight: Certainly none of this would be possible if Nikola Pekovic were healthy. But because he's not, the opportunistic Dieng (12 points, 15 rebounds on Tuesday) is quickly approaching must-start status. Give him a look Wednesday against Chicago.

Description: T-Wolves center Gorgui Dieng was at it again Wednesday against the Hawks.
Insight: In 41 minutes, he compiled 15 points, 15 rebounds and two assists. The 24-year-old out of Louisville has collected ten or more boards in five of his last six contests. Until Nikola Pekovic returns from his ankle injury, Dieng should be starting in all fantasy leagues.

Description: Minnesota center Gorgui Dieng continued his rebounding binge with 17 boards Monday in a loss to Memphis.
Insight: Dieng is making the most of his opportunity. In five games with Nikola Pekovic sidelined by an ankle injury, Dieng has averaged 12.2 ppg and 13.8 rpg. If he's still on the waiver wire in your league, now would be the time to pick him up.

Description: Out of nowhere, Wolves center Gorgui Dieng came through with 22 points and 21 rebounds Thursday against Houston.
Insight: Dieng got the start at center in place of Nikola Pekovic (ankle). A 42.4 percent free throw shooter on the season, Dieng miraculously made 10-of-11 from the line on Thursday. His next game is Sunday against Phoenix.
