This is the second consecutive month Wiggins has earned the honor, becoming the first Timberwolves player to win the award multiple times in the same season.

He tallied 20+ points five times during the month, and was the Wolves top scorer on four occasions. Wiggins finished the month averaging 20.0 points on 50.8% shooting during the team's month-closing four-game road trip. NBA.com

Minnesota coach Flip Saunders missed the Timberwolves' game against Denver on Monday night because of an illness. Saunders has been battling the bug that has circulated through the team for a few days and was hopeful he could make it to the game after skipping the morning shootaround. But by Monday afternoon it became clear he wasn't feeling well enough to coach, so assistant Sam Mitchell took over. USA Today Sports

Muhammad has definitely gotten better, but by changing his eating habits. He has gone from a fastbreak of double cheeseburgers as a rookie to dedicating himself to chicken salad, from approximately 245 pounds to 215 the second season, from out of shape as late as summer league last July to beach workouts that left him puking on the sands of Santa Monica, Calif., and because of it has gone from a focus of criticism to re-affirming his spot as part of the Minnesota future.

Muhammad's usual release of getting on the court was not available -- he could barely get on the court. Instead, he ate himself to a weight that once seemed unimaginable. He heard the dissections that he was a selfish player and, as 2013-14 slipped away, that Minnesota would regret the choice. It has all made this season that much more satisfying. NBA.com
