      Timberwolves' Tayshaun Prince: Comes off bench Monday

      Prince failed to score Monday as he moved to a bench role Monday against the 76ers. This was the first game this season that Prince didn't start for Minnesota, but even with a starting spot his offensive production has been very nonexistent. He's only averaging 2.9 points and 2.4 rebounds per game through the first 14 contests, and it was a matter of time before the veteran was sent to the bench on this young and talented team.

      Timberwolves' Tayshaun Prince: Moves to bench

      Kevin Martin will move into the starting lineup Monday at shooting guard with Prince moving to the bench, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. This may not have a huge impact on Prince's minutes as Martin (25 minutes per game) was already averaging more minutes per game than Prince (22 minutes per game). Prince still has primarily a defensive role as he's averaging just 3.2 points and 3.0 shots per game.

      Timberwolves' Tayshaun Prince: Starting, but seeing light minutes

      Prince failed to score a point (0-1 FG) and collected four rebounds and two assists over 13 minutes in Tuesday's win over the Heat. Prince has started at small forward for all 11 of the Wolves' games this season, but for fantasy purposes that hasn't meant much. He's typically not seeing the playing time normally associated with a starting role, as he's failed to receive more than 20 minutes in three of the team's last four games. Reserve players such as Zach LaVine, Kevin Martin, and Nemanja Bjelica -- all of whom bring more offensive upside to the table -- are probably more worthy fantasy investments than the defense-first Prince.

      Timberwolves' Tayshaun Prince: Season-high 39 minutes

      Prince scored eight points with five rebounds and a blocked shot in 38 minutes in Saturday's overtime win over Chicago. Prince had a season-high in minutes and shots attempted (4-of-9 from the field) as he got more playing time with Kevin Martin missing the game due to a personal issue. Don't expect Prince to keep up this pace as the T-Wolves will likely want to moderate the 35-year old's minutes.

      Timberwolves' Tayshaun Prince: Scores just two points in 29 minutes

      Prince scored two points with three rebounds, two assists and two steals in 29 minutes in Friday's win over Denver. Despite starting at small forward, Prince has taken just three shots from the field in two games. He's getting the starting nod for his defense (he's +13 in two games), but won't contribute many points, assists or rebounds.

      Timberwolves' Tayshaun Prince: Starts again at small forward

      Prince is likely to begin the season at small forward, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. He started at small forward for a third consecutive preseason game Friday and scored four points with two rebounds in 16 minutes. With Andrew Wiggins moving to shooting guard, head coach Sam Mitchell wants to keep Prince in the starting lineup since it allows Prince to defend the opponent's more physical offensive player. However at age 35, it's not clear if Prince can play more than 15 minutes per game. As a result, he may be more of a nominal starter with Shabazz Muhammad getting more minutes at small forward off the bench. Prince may also not take many shots since he'll be in the lineup for his defense.

      Timberwolves' Tayshaun Prince: Could open season in starting lineup

      Prince picked up the start at small forward for the Timberwolves in Tuesday's preseason loss to the Bucks. He attempted just one shot before leaving after five minutes due to an upset stomach, according to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune's Jerry Zgoda reports. The stomach illness isn't anything that will jeopardize Prince's availability for the preseason finale Friday against Milwaukee, but more notable than his early departure was the fact that he was deployed in a starting role. In light of the struggles of second-year man Zach LaVine and veteran Kevin Martin (who shot 0-for-10 from the field Tuesday), it appears interim coach Sam Mitchell will turn to Andrew Wiggins as his starting shooting guard, creating an opening at small forward. Prior to the game, Mitchell told Zgoda that Prince, Shabazz Muhammad, and Damjan Rudez were all being viewed as options for the starting role once the regular season begins, and Prince's deployment in the lineup Tuesday should make him the clubhouse favorite of the trio. However, after seeing his playing time fall below 25 minutes per game last season for the first time since 2002-03, look for Muhammad and/or Rudez to remain factors in Mitchell's rotation off the bench.

      Timberwolves' Tayshaun Prince: Posts five points Sunday

      Prince tallied five points (2-3 FG, 1-2 3Pt), two assists, and a steal over 19 minutes in Sunday's 90-68 loss to the Grizzlies. The veteran appears firmly entrenched as a backup to Shabazz Muhammad and Andrew Wiggins at small forward, and has likely put in a sufficiently productive preseason to demonstrate that he is worth keeping on the final roster. After a scoreless preseason debut, Prince has averaged 7.7 points per game over the last three outings on 64 percent shooting (9-for-14).

      Timberwolves forward Tayshaun Prince will not play Wednesday

      Timberwolves forward Tayshaun Prince will not play in Wednesday's preseason game due to a dental procedure. It doesn't appear as if the procedure was anything serious, so Prince should be healthy when the regular season rolls around. The 35-year-old is expected to see some playing at small forward, albeit in a reserve role behind Andrew Wiggins and Shabazz Muhammad.

      Timberwolves sign F Tayshaun Prince to help woeful defense

      What was reported has now been made official by the Timberwolves, who have announced the signing of veteran small forward Tayshaun Prince. The deal is reportedly one year for the veteran's minimum. The 35-year-old Prince totaled 7.5 points and 3.6 rebounds in 24 minutes per game for Memphis, Boston and Detroit a year ago. He also shot 44 percent from the floor, but is far better known for his defense. Minnesota allowed a league-high 106.5 points per game last season.
