Analysis: The backup center had missed the team's last three games. Dieng only sees about 15-20 minutes per game, so he's not an impact fantasy performer. His return may mean a few less minutes for Karl-Anthony Towns and Taj Gibson, though.

Dieng pulled down 11 rebounds and did not have an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of +8 in his 18:47 on the floor.
Analysis: Dieng notched his first double-double of the season by being a force on the glass and at the foul line, where he made 9 of 10 attempts. Those who may have taken a flyer on the 6-foot-11 forward for his shot-blocking skills have been disappointed, though. He's recorded only two rejections through the season's first 10 games.
