Brooks supplied 12 points (4-12 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds and two assists across 16 minutes in Sunday's 121-97 loss to the Jazz. With Jeff Teague (knee) out of action, Brooks saw a rare allotment of appreciable minutes behind starter Tyus Jones, his most since Jan. 8. The 10-year veteran parlayed them into a season-high scoring total despite some spotty shooting, but the surge is likely to be short-lived. Prior to Sunday, Brooks had seen the floor for a grand total of just 14 minutes since the All-Star break, and that's likely to be the norm once again as soon as Teague returns to action.
Brooks (personal) did not see the floor Friday against the Jazz. Brooks was held out of the team's previous game Thursday in Portland due to a personal issue, and his status was never clarified prior to Friday's contest. Considering Brooks isn't a part of the regular rotation, it's unclear if he was available, but the veteran should be back with the team for its next game Thursday versus Boston following an unusually long, five-day layoff.
Brooks scored two points with an assist and a steal in 21 minutes in Sunday's win at Indiana. Brooks should get 5 to 10 minutes per game off the bench as the backup point guard to Tyus Jones with Jeff Teague out with a knee injury. He may not produce enough in that role for viable fantasy value in most leagues, but he's worth keeping tabs on in case Jones is hurt or struggles.
Brooks (illness) will be available for Thursday's game against the Bucks, Wolves radio voice Alan Horton reports. Brooks missed Wednesday's win over Denver due to an illness, but he'll again be an option off the bench for coach Tom Thibodeau on Thursday. The veteran has not been a part of the regular rotation this season, but he could see a bit of a bump in minutes in the wake of Jeff Teague's knee injury, which will likely keep him out for 2-to-4 weeks.
Brooks (illness) is questionable for Thursday's game against the Bucks, Jace Frederick of the Pioneer Press reports. Brooks will likely receive treatment throughout the day with the hope of feeling better by the end of pregame warmups, though we may not get final word on his availability until right before tip-off. Prior to the injury, Brooks had been outside the regular rotation, though Jeff Teague just went down with sprained knee and is out indefinitely, so Brooks would have the chance to get some run if he's ultimately cleared to play.
