Minnesota Timberwolves Fantasy Spin

Karl-Anthony Towns (knee) is probable Thursday against the Jazz.This is just a precaution for Towns after saying he "felt good" after his return on Tuesday. Towns looked very good in that game against the Nuggets with 34 points and 10 boards, so expect him to be a full go in a tough matchup against Rudy Gobert.

Utah Jazz Fantasy Spin

Ricky Rubio (left hip tightness) returned for Wednesday's road win in Phoenix, scoring six points with three rebounds and four assists in 22 minutes. Rubio missed two games and he was on a minute-limit tonight, but his injury was never described as more than "tightness" so it shouldn't linger. He shot 1-of-7 from the field tonight and was a combined 6-of-28 in three games to start March (21.4%), but even when the shots aren't falling he's an elite dimes-and-steals specialist. He was playing very well in February, too, so it makes sense to grab him if he's floating on your waiver wire.
