Timberwolves' Shabazz Muhammad: Returns to practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muhammad (hip) returned to practice Thursday, but will be reevaluated Friday prior to the team's preseason finale versus the Hornets.

Muhammad has missed the last two games with a minor hip ailment, but considering he was able to practice Thursday without any issues, he's likely not far off from a return to the floor. He'll be reevaluated Friday and the expectation is that he'll be ready by the time the regular season is here, if not sooner.

Timberwolves' Andrew Wiggins: Practices Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wiggins (allergies) returned to practice Thursday, but will be reevaluated Friday prior to the team's preseason finale versus the Hornets.

Wiggins was held out of Wednesday's preseason outing due to allergies, but it's not expected to be much of an issue moving forward. He was able to practice Thursday and as long as it doesn't hurt his ability to remain an effective player, Wiggins will likely be cleared in the near future. He'll be reevaluated Friday morning.

Timberwolves' Gorgui Dieng: Tallies 19 points, 11 boards, four blocks in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dieng registered 19 points (5-6 FG, 9-10 FT), 11 rebounds, four blocks and one steal across 23 minutes in

The Grizzlies frontcourt had few answers for the tandem of Dieng and Karl-Anthony Towns who combined to produce 50 points in 47 minutes on 12-of-16 shooting from the field and 26-of-27 shooting from the free-throw line. Dieng maintains the lower profile of the two players, but his stellar multi-category production makes him deserving of early-to-mid-round consideration in most formats. He's compiled averages of 10.0 points, 6.2 rebounds and 2.2 blocks across only 22.8 minutes per game during the preseason.

Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Erupts for 31 points in win over Grizzlies
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Towns scored 31 points (7-10 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 17-17 FT) and added nine rebounds, two assists and one block across 24 minutes during Wednesday's 101-94 preseason win over the Grizzlies.

It was easily the best performance of the preseason for Towns, who is expected to take another step forward in Year 2 after an outstanding rookie campaign. His flawless showing from the free-throw line Wednesday brought him up to 33-of-38 from the stripe through five preseason contests. The Timberwolves close out the exhibition season Friday against the Hornets, and it's possible Towns could be limited or held out altogether with the start of the regular season less than a week away.

Timberwolves' Brandon Rush: Will start Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rush will draw the start in Wednesday's preseason game against the Grizzlies, Kyle Ratke of NBA.com reports.

Andrew Wiggins and Shabazz Muhammad are both sidelined for the contest, which has resulted in Rush's addition to the starting lineup. He figures to help out with three point production this season for the young Timberwolves, but will have a hard time finding consistent minutes in a loaded backcourt.
