Shabazz Muhammed's Work In a 2-Point Loss

22 minutes - played forward (when drafted, they claimed he was an off guard), Minus 13, 3 for 13 from the floor, 1 for 5 from 3, 1 for 5 from the line, 8 points.

Here is a more concerning note - I actually watched the game highlights.  He got open on a cut off a screen and got a dunk - he is 6'5" - he could barely clear the rim to dunk.  After dunking, he ran to the other end, looking like the current version of me in a pickup game.  Huffing, puffing, straining for air.

With the game tied and 7 seconds to play, the Wolves went to him in the corner.  Not only did he fail to get a shot off, he tried a "rip through" move and was stripped of the ball. 

So.........poor shooting, out of shape, cannot handle the ball, undersized for his position, and the Wolves were +11 when he was on the bench, -13 when he played.
