#Wizards starters: Wall, Beal, Porter, Humpries, Gortat. #Timberwolves: LaVine, Brewer, Wiggins, Young, Dieng.

David Thorpe

10. Call me crazy, but I still think G Dieng can be an All-Star. I just don't know if he does, or if he cares to be. Wolves must get on that

John Schuhmann

Fascinating Brewer, Muhammed, Wiggins, Young, Dieng lineup for the Wolves.

Kevin Ding

Timberwolves center Gorgui Dieng went to use the public restroom a minute ago because it was slightly closer than the locker room.

Royce Young

I don't know if it's possible to poster someone with a layup, but I think Russell Westbrook just did that to Gorgui Dieng.

Erik Gundersen

Gorgui Dieng got RoLo right in the face with his elbow.

Rusty Simmons

GSW at MIN starters: GSW - Curry, Thompson, Barnes, Green, Bogut; MIN - Lavine, Brewer, Wiggins, Young, Dieng. Out: Lee;Martin/Pekovic/Rubio

David Hardisty

Jason Terry just worked over Gorgui Dieng with a stepback 18-footer. "He's 37 years old? Are you kidding me?!" says Bill Worrell. 94-83 HOU.

Jon Krawczynski

Wolves starters: LaVine, Brewer, Wiggins, Young, Dieng. Maybe Zach will go all 48

Keith Pompey

Andy Greder

#Twolves center Gorgui Dieng's fourth quarter: 4 points, 6 rebounds, 6 assists.

Jon Krawczynski

Not seeing the next step I expected Gorgui Dieng to take with all these extra minutes with Pek out. Has to be better

Andy Greder

Really the first time he's gotten into trouble since Nikola Pekovic went down. RT @DerekJamesNBA: And three fouls on Dieng now.

Mike Trudell

After a slick reverse layup, Lin somewhat accidentally drew Gorgiu Dieng's 3rd PF at the 5:29 mark. LAL up 42-33.

Mike Trudell

Anthony Bennett's been effective for Minnesota since Dieng picked up that early 2nd PF, scoring 9 points w/3 boards and an assist in 14 min.

Mike Trudell

Since Dieng went out, Boozer has 3 times scored easily inside (6 points). Mo Williams keeping MIN around at 15-13 into the 1st time out.

Mike Trudell

MIN's lone true big man that's healthy, G. Dieng, picks up 2 quick fouls. A. Bennett checks in to replace him in a real small MIN line up.

Eric Pincus

Quick 2nd on Dieng - no Pek or Turiaf tonight - so Anthony Bennett in at center

Charles F. Gardner

Flagrant-1 foul called on Knight after he loses ball to Gorgui Dieng and fouls him on break. Dieng hits both FTs. End of 3: Bucks 72-70.

Andy Greder

The ninth #Twolves starting lineup in 13 games this season. RT @Twolves_PR: #Twolves will start LaVine, Brewer, Wiggins, Young and Dieng.

Darren Wolfson

Congrats to #Twolves center @Gorgui Dieng. He was named the sportsman of the year today in his native Senegal.

Andy Greder

Early game story: #Twolves Gorgui Dieng has tough task of guarding DeMarcus Cousins without much help in #Kings win. twincities.com/timberwolves/c…

Bill Herenda

T’Wolves up 52-48 @ 1/2, Sac 14 assists on 19 FGs but 2-12 3FGs, Cousins leads all scorers w/15, Brewer 11, Dieng 10 #NBA #SacKings

Jon Krawczynski

#TWolves 24, #Kings 21 after 1. Bennett with 6, Dieng with 4 and 4 and just blocked Boogie at buzzer. Kings 37.5% and 5 TOs

Andy Greder

Interestingly, the thin #Twolves are rolling with the starters for most of first quarter. Dieng, Bennett and Brewer each with one foul.

Jon Krawczynski

23 seconds into the game, Dieng picks up a foul on Cousins. Flip really concerned about Kings' ability to draw fouls

Andy Greder

#Twolves projected starters: SF Andrew Wiggins, PF Anthony Bennett, C Gorgui Dieng, SG Corey Brewer and PG Mo Williams.

Andy Greder

In a matchup with DeMarcus Cousins, #Twolves coach Flip Saunders' message to center Gorgui Dieng: "Survival."

Paul Garcia

A Gorgui Dieng-Anthony Bennett high-low play is the opposite of a Boris Diaw-Tim Duncan high-low play. SA 82-60 in 3Q.

Andy Greder

Reminder: #Twolves have 10 active players against the defending champs. Starters are Wiggins, Muhammad, Dieng, Brewer and Williams.

Jerry Zgoda

Spurs are starting Kawhi, Duncan, Diaw, Parker, Green vs. Wolves' Mo, Brewer, Wiggins, Dieng and Shabazz

Jeff McDonald

Spurs: Parker, Green, Leonard, Duncan, Diaw. Wolves: Mo Williams, Brewer, Wiggins, Muhammad, Dieng.

Darren Wolfson

Rubio's contract not the only one on #Twolves minds before Oct. ends. They'll exercise 2015-2016 options w/ Muhammad, Dieng, and Bennett.
