We’re almost halfway though the NBA season, meaning it’s time for us to evaluate how everyone on the Wolves roster is doing.
With a record hovering around .500, Minnesota has positioned itself to make the playoffs. Whether the Timberwolves go anywhere depends first and foremost on the play of superstars Ricky Rubio and Kevin Love as well as their supporting cast of Andrei Kirilenko, Nikola Pekovic, Alexey Shved and Co.
There are three options for each player’s stock; either they are rising, falling or neutral. I’ve tried to avoid using the neutral tag, resorting to it only if a player hasn’t moved definitively in either direction.
Lazar Hayward has just joined the team, so his stock is neither rising nor falling. Everyone else has been evaluated by the measures above.
