      Timberwolves' Kevin Garnett: Scoreless on Friday

      Garnett posted zero points (0-2 FG), four rebounds, and two steals in 14 minutes during the Wolves' 96-86 loss versus the Pistons on Friday. At this stage in his career, the former sure-fire first-round fantasy pick is an after-thought regardless of league format. Though he still starts alongside Karl Anthony-Towns, the Wolves have a plethora of young players, and Garnett rarely sees 20 minutes of action.

      Timberwolves' Kevin Garnett: Grabs eight rebounds Monday

      Garnett scored four points and grabbed eight rebounds in Minnesota's 117-107 win against the Hawks on Monday. The veteran continues to start Minnesota's games, however his playing time (15.5 MPG) are more of a bench role. His backup Nemenja Bjelica is averaging almost double the minutes Garnett is. He's not much of scoring threat at this point in his career only shooting an average of three shots per game, but he can offer good rebound numbers for the amount of time he plays.

      Timberwolves' Kevin Garnett: Six rebounds in win

      Garnett scored four points with six rebounds, two steals and two assists in 23 minutes in Friday's win over Denver. Garnett has started both of Minnesota's games at power forward and is averaging 17.5 minutes per game. His playing time will likely decrease once the T-Wolves start playing back-to-back games, as the team will pick spots to give him rest. It's not clear if the 39-year old will be able to stay healthy for a full season. While Garnett won't take many shots (just seven shots in two games), he's still a good source of per-minute rebounds (6.5 per game).

      Timberwolves' Kevin Garnett: Tallies eight points Sunday

      Garnett tallied eight points (4-5 FG), an assist, four rebounds, and three steals over 17 minutes in Sunday's 90-68 loss to the Grizzlies. The ageless veteran turned in a highly productive outing in virtually every category on the stat sheet. Garnett's signature defense was on display Sunday, with the 39-year-old grabbing four boards and recording a trio of swipes. Garnett also posted his preseason high in minutes, and his amount of court time Sunday will likely be very close to what he will receive on a nightly basis during the regular season.

      Timberwolves forward Kevin Garnett returns to camp healthy

      Timberwolves general manager Milt Newton said Monday that Kevin Garnett (knee) is healthy and ready to go for the start of training camp, Kent Youngblood of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. After making his return to the Timberwolves in a February deadline deal, Garnett appeared in just five games with the club before a knee injury sidelined him for the remainder of the season. With his health intact for the upcoming season, Garnett is slated to open camp as the starter at center, but he'll likely only see about 20 minutes per night in an effort to keep his 39-year-old legs spry. While Garnett is still capable of providing lockdown defense near the rim, his greatest value may come in the form of mentoring young bigs Karl-Anthony Towns and Gorgui Dieng. As the season progresses, Garnett will likely see his role diminish as the team looks to carve out more minutes for those younger options.
