Dante Cunningham gets 21 minutes Friday (Mar 14 12:00 ET )
Dante Cunningham played 21 minutes off the bench against the Bobcats on Friday with 10 points, four boards, two assists, one steal and one block.
Dante Cunningham came off the bench and played 26 minutes on Saturday, despite the return of Nikola Pekovic.
The Scoop:Cunningham's minuscule value has likely been crushed by Pek's return, but then again, he's the only backup center available to the Wolves right now with Ronny Turiaf out indefinitely. He had seven points, four rebounds and a block on 3-of-9 shooting and owners in very deep leagues may want to continue holding Cunningham given tonight's minutes count.
Dante Cunningham made his second straight start on Sunday, scoring 12 points with six boards and one block in 25 minutes.
The Scoop:He's a bit of a stretch four with a plus jumper, but that's a fundamental problem from a systematic standpoint considering Kevin Love's presence for the same thing. As tonight showed, Cunningham is more of a short-term asset in deeper leagues.
Minnesota center Nikola Pekovic and guard Kevin Martin missed Saturday's game against Utah, which was without Derrick Favors. Pekovic missed his 11th straight game with a right ankle injury he sustained Jan. 27 at Chicago. Kevin Love moved to center and the Wolves started Dante Cunningham.
