4/8/2014 8:05:00 PM
Description: Minnesota power forward Dante Cunningham is active for Tuesday's matchup with San Antonio. Cunningham was released from jail Monday night.
Insight: According to Andy Greder of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, Cunningham will not be charged with making terrorist threats against his ex-girlfriend. The Villanova alum has been arrested twice in the last week though he's only had to miss one game. He's scarcely owned in fantasy leagues.
4/6/2014 10:08:00 PM
Description: Wolves forward Dante Cunningham was arrested Sunday for the second time in four days. SOURCE: Nate Sandell, 1500 ESPN Minneapolis
Insight: Cunningham (6.1 ppg, 4.1 rpg) was accused of making terrorist threats and is now in police custody. It's unknown if he'll be available Tuesday night against San Antonio.
4/3/2014 1:43:00 PM
Description: Minnesota PF Dante Cunningham was arrested Thursday morning on on suspicion of domestic assault and will miss Friday's game, according to the Star Tribune.
Insight: Cunningham has been getting most of the work at center and has averages 6.0 ppg, 4.0 rpg. That's not fantasy worthy. More minutes for Gorgui Dieng and Kevin Love and they are fantasy worthy.
2/25/2014 11:36:00 AM
Description: Minnesota PF Dante Cunningham has been a low-end fantasy option since Ronny Turiaf and starter Nikola Pekovic were both sidelined by injury.
Insight: Cunningham has been getting most of the work at center and has averaged 11.0 ppg and 6.0 rpg over the last three contests.
2/7/2014 11:27:00 AM
Description: Minnesota PF Dante Cunningham is a viable fantasy option if Kevin Love is again sidelined by a stiff neck that forced him out of Wednesday's game.
Insight: Cunningham rose to the occasion Wednesday posting 18 points, eight rebounds, three assists, three steals and three blocks against a tough Oklahoma City squad.
1/21/2013 9:20:00 AM
Description: Minnesota forward Dante Cunningham is probable for Monday's game against Atlanta. He'll be a game-time decision.
Insight: Cunningham (7.4 ppg, 5.5 rpg) will likely backup Derrick Williams, but with Nikola Pekovic and Kevin Love out, there are plenty of minutes available if he's healthy.
1/19/2013 7:40:00 PM
Description: Minnesota forward Dante Cunningham is out for Saturday's game against Houston.
Insight: Cunningham missed shootaround with an illness earlier in the day and it looks like he's still a bit under the weather. With Nikola Pekovic and Kevin Love also out, the Timberwolves are going to have an extremely thin bench tonight.
1/19/2013 1:33:00 PM
Description: Timberwolves PF/C Dante Cunningham is questionable for Saturday's game against Houston due to illness.
Insight: Cunningham was one of the few healthy big men on the Minnesota roster with Kevin Love and Nikola Pekovic sidelined and was seeing more the 30 minutes per game. If he can't run, Derrick Williams might have to play 48 minutes.
1/17/2013 11:19:00 AM
Description: Timberwolves acting coach Terry Porter said PF Dante Cunningham will remain in the starting five. SOURCE: Pioner Press
Insight: Cunningham is only shooting 37.6 percent in the past six games as a replacement for Kevin Love, who is out 8-to-10 weeks with a broken hand. Cunningham's role as the starting four should tell you just how little confidence the team has in former No. 2 overall pick Derrick Williams.
11/13/2012 1:35:00 PM
Description: Dante Cunningham could see additional playing time if Nikola Pekovic is sidelined for any length of time with his ankle injury.
Insight: Cunningham had 14 points and eight rebounds off the bench against Dallas.
4/3/2012 8:02:00 PM
Description: Dante Cunningham (sprained ankle) will play against Golden State but he won't start.
Insight: Cunningham will be backing up Marreese Speights, who has averaged 9.5 ppg and 11.5 rpg in his last two games.
4/2/2012 7:52:00 PM
Description: Dante Cunningham will not play Monday night against the Thunder after spraining his ankle in a game last weekend.
Insight: Marreese Speights (double-digit points in three out of his last four games) will be inserted into the starting lineup in Cunningham's place.
3/30/2012 9:56:00 PM
Description: Dante Cunningham left Friday's game early with an injured ankle. He has not returned to action yet.
Insight: Cunningham took advantage of Marc Gasol's absence Tuesday (13 points, 14 rebounds) but now that Gasol is back, we don't see a lot of fantasy potential for Cunningham. Especially now that he's been sidelined with an ankle issue.
3/30/2012 10:45:00 AM
Description: Dante Cunningham was the starter on Tuesday when Marc Gasol missed due to a sore right ankle.
Insight: Cunningham made the most of his opportunity with 13 points and 14 rebounds. If Gasol can't go on Friday, Cunningham could have surprising value.
5/4/2011 12:41:00 PM
Description: Dante Cunningham was allegedly caught with marijuana, paraphernalia and a BB by police just outside of Villanova University. SOURCE: NBC Phildelphia
Insight: Cunningham made some strides this year down the stretch and he will become a restricted free agent this offseason. The Bobcats will likely sign him, but this certainly makes it less likely.
4/12/2011 9:21:00 AM
Description: Dante Cunningham is finishing the season on a high note as he scored 21 points with his four boards, a steal, and a block in 35 minutes.
Insight: Not a bad way to go out in what was his last game of being a decent spot-starter for deep leagues. There is really no reason to start him on Wednesday with all the teams playing and he really shouldn't be viewed as a asset for next year's fantasy drafts.
4/1/2011 9:48:00 PM
Description: Dante Cunningham exploded in a losing effort with 21 points, seven boards, and a block in 39 minutes.
Insight: Whoa. The Bobcats are arguably the most injured team in the league and the fact that they traded for Cunningham can be construed as nice positive. We'll see what he does Sunday, but if there is some dead weight on your roster, it would behoove you to take him away from your opponents at the very least.
2/14/2011 10:59:00 PM
Description: Dante Cunningham had a huge game in Minnesota with 18 points, 13 boards, and two steals in 24 minutes.
Insight: While Cunningham has stepped it up every now and then, he will lose most of his value once Marcus Camby returns. Camby could return as soon as Wednesday, so leave Cunningham on waivers and make sure Camby is owned.
10/9/2010 8:05:00 AM
Description: Cunningham had his second straight double-double as the Blazers lost to the Nuggets. He had 15 points and 10 rebounds.
Insight: Cunningham is seeing extended minutes in preseason games and has produced favorable numbers. With Jeff Pendergraph out for the season, Cunningham could see more minutes off the bench. (
10/8/2010 11:56:00 PM
Description: Dante Cunningham had his second impressive game on Friday with 15 points, 10 rebounds, and four steals in 36 minutes.
Insight: The injury curse of Portland's frontcourt is no secret and Cunningham is just an injury away from really becoming a sleeper. Jeff Pendergraph is already out for the year and it sounds like Oden is not going to be played much to start the season. Keep an eye on this situation.
