Timberwolves forward Kevin Garnett returns to camp healthy
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

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.

Timberwolves PG Ricky Rubio still working his way back
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Timberwolves guard Ricky Rubio (ankle) admitted Monday that he's still working his way back to full strength, Kent Youngblood of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports. 

Rubio was cleared for 5-on-5 work more than a month ago, but said at the time he didn't believe he was ready. It appears as though he was simply dealing with some rust after missing four months, but all indications are that Rubio will be available when the regular season opens at the end of October.

Rubio also stated that he's worked to improve as a 3-point shooter, noting that he knocked down 89-of-100 attempts at a recent practice.

"Gotta hit it in the game," Rubio said. The Spaniard shot just 25.5 percent from downtown in 22 games last season.

Timberwolves center Nikola Pekovic still several weeks away
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Timberwolves center Nikola Pekovic admitted  Monday that he's still seven or eight weeks away from full healthy, Derek James of 1500 ESPN reports. 

Pekovic has been plagued by ankle/Achilles issues for the last couple of seasons, and he was limited to only 31 games in 2014-15.

He underwent Achilles surgery in April and was initially given a 5-6 month timetable. It appears as though he's slightly behind in his recovery, and at this point it's very unlikely that he's available when the regular season begins at the end of October.

Even when healthy, Pekovic figures to see a reduced role, as Kevin Garnett is expected to start at center. The Wolves also feature Gorgui Dieng, as well as rookie Karl Anthony Towns, who will see minutes at both power forward and center.

Report: Timberwolves reach buyout agreement with Anthony Bennett
by Rotowire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Forward Anthony Bennett's contract was bought out by the Timberwolves on Tuesday, Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reports. 

Reports surfaced Monday night suggesting the two sides were working toward a buyout, and that has now been finalized, meaning Bennett will become a free agent.

The former No. 1 overall pick has now flamed out in both Cleveland and Minnesota, but considering his age (22) and relative upside, he figures to resurface with another franchise willing to take what is ultimately a fairly low-risk chance on him.

The 76ers and Trail Blazers are two teams whose names have already surfaced as potential suitors.
