Struggles vs. Hornets
Wednesday's performance was arguably Towns' worst of the season, as he committed four turnovers in addition to his lackluster shooting during the Wolves' ninth consecutive loss. The effort marked Towns' first sub-20 point game since Feb. 19, where he scored 19 points against the Raptors.

Downward trend continues Wednesday
Vanderbilt played just 18 minutes despite still being a part of the opening five, continuing to frustrate those the added him over the past week. The change in coach has certainly not worked in his favor and although we have seen him flash tremendous upside, his role is far too inconsistent to make him a must-roster player outside of deeper leagues.

Leads team with 20 points in loss
Rubio continues to be one of the Timberwolves' best players on a nightly basis having been thrust into a larger role with the injury to D'Angelo Russell (knee). This could have been an even better night for Rubio had the game been even remotely close. They are undoubtedly the worst team in the league right now and so while Rubio is a clear must-roster player, beware of these kinds of games as they are going to limit his playing time.
