• Gorgui Dieng continued to see limited minutes in Friday’s home loss, scoring eight points on 3-of-7 shooting with four rebounds and two steals in 20 minutes off the bench.

    Sam Mitchell could very well get a long leash following Flip Saunders’ unfortunate passing and he has a lot of folks in Minnesota scratching their heads with rotations and the like.  Dieng’s underutilization has flown underneath the radar and the third-year man has looked apprehensive like many whose minutes have been clipped, but he’s still a late-round value this season in just 18.9 mpg.  Hopefully you didn’t listen to any other Internet reports telling you to drop him, because though the Mitchell thing is real he will eventually bust out and has early round upside.
