Statistical brain teaser: Wolves' roster edition

UPDATE: Nevermind! (explanation below in the comments)

I grabbed this screenshot from a national sports website last night (no names so as to not embarrass the totally guilty). One of the numbers on it did not make any sense to me at all. See if you can spot what I'm talking about:

The highlighted assists column is not a clue. Now I'll admit I'm not very good at interpreting statistics, but this error simply cannot be correct, at least not in a world governed by Newtonian physics (and I'm not talking Gingrich).

I'm sure there will be plenty of the usual snark, but this error is beyond snark and is just not humanly possible. I also predict that most of you will study the entire chart at least twice before spotting it.

No prize for being the first to spot the error other than bragging rights (which, on this site, can be considerable).
