NBA player profile for Taj Gibson with stats and fantasy analysis

TAJ
GIBSON

Nov. 10, 2018 - Taj has been having an awesome season, but with the Timberwolves’ acquisition of Dario Saric and Robert Covington, Minnesota now has a boost of three point shooting talent it can place next to Rose, Wiggins, and Towns. This is a great trade for both teams considering the circumstances, but Taj might find himself losing some playing time and moving back into a bench role. He is a favorite of his coach, which could delay this inevitable move, but Taj simply can not stretch the floor enough to steal minutes from Saric.

Like, on some level, Mitchell Robinson playing under 20 minutes a night before concussion is unforgivable. Also, Julius Randle, Marcus Morris, Taj Gibson and Bobby Portis are getting paid like $60M+ this season, and they’re all 4/5s. Those guys are going to play early in year.

With Morris at the 3, fair to assume Randle will be the power forward and either Bobby Portis or Taj Gibson will be the center. t.co

Hopefully, Mitch Rob is watching screens set by Taj Gibson. Gibson sets solid screens nearly every time, while Mitch almost always brush screens without making consistent contact. Gibson screens led to two dunks on the first two possessions of 2Q (one for Knox, one for Taj)

Taj Gibson back in the #Knicks rotation because why not? Still give up 33 in the first quarter though, which is not good.
