Wiggins to win rookie honour


MINNEAPOLI­S — Andrew Wiggins started his NBA career at the front of his rookie class. He finished his first season there, too.

The Minnesota Timberwolv­es’ forward will be named rookie of the year Thursday, a source told The Associated Press on Wednesday night. The native of Vaughan, Ont., averaged 16.9 points and 4.6 rebounds while playing all 82 games as a rookie and averaged 39 minutes per game for a team that was routinely missing five, six, even eight players a night to injury.
