After Austin Croshere got waived, Ryan Gomes is now the only former Providence Friar in the NBA.  I will try to give a Gomes update each week.

Since Minnesota lost Al Jefferson for the year, Gomes has really stepped up.

Here are his lines the last 5 games.

2/18 vs MIA – 20 points, 7 rebounds, 2 steals
2/20 vs IND – 26 points, 3 rebounds, 2 steals
2/22 vs LAL – 20 points, 7 rebounds, 4 assists
2/24 vs TOR – 23 points, 9 rebounds, 5 assists
2/25 vs UTA – 24 points, 8 rebounds, 1 block

Of course Minnesota has only won 1 of those last 5 (versus Miami last Wednesday).  The Timberwolves are now 18-39.
