Bayless (toe) played 15 minutes off the bench and contributed two points (1-3 FG, 0-2 3Pt) and two assists Monday in the Timberwolves' 130-120 win over the Clippers. Due to a surfeit of injuries in the backcourt, Bayless had drawn six straight starts at point guard before sustaining a toe injury last Thursday in Orlando that resulted in him missing the second half of a back-to-back set. Though Bayless got the green light to play Monday, he saw only a limited role off the bench with both Jeff Teague and Derrick Rose back in the mix after recovering from injuries that kept both sidelined for multiple contests. Now third in the pecking order among the Wolves' healthy point guards, Bayless will probably fill only a limited role off the bench moving forward and could drop out of the rotation entirely when Tyus Jones (ankle) likely returns shortly after the All-Star break.
Bayless (toe) has been cleared to play Monday against the Clippers. Bayless missed the last game with a minor toe issue, but the Wolves will have both he and Jeff Teague healthy for the first time in multiple weeks. Bayless has been a productive fill-in for Teague, and it's unclear how the pair of veterans will split the workload Monday night with Derrick Rose also available as a backcourt option.
Bayless (toe) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Clippers. Bayless missed the Wolves' last game with a big toe injury. The team's backcourt has been hit with a number of injuries, so Bayless was averaging 36.5 minutes per game. With Tyus Jones doubtful and Derrick Rose also questionable, Bayless could be in line for another large workload if he is able to go. More information on his status should come out following the team's morning shootaround on Monday.
Bayless (toe) will not play in Friday's game versus the Pelicans, Alan Horton of the Timberwolves Radio Network reports. Bayless has played admirably in an extended role recently due to a plethora of injuries in the Timberwolves' backcourt, but he will be unable to go Friday. In his absence, Isaiah Canaan will draw the start at point guard, while Jeff Teague will be available off the bench following a relatively lengthy injury stint. Consider Bayless day-to-day heading into Monday's matchup with the Clippers.
Bayless (toe) is listed as questionable for Friday's game against the Pelicans. Due to the glut of injuries at point guard, Bayless has started the last six games at the position, averaging 11.5 points, 7.3 assists and 4.2 rebounds in 36.5 minutes per game during those contests. However, after hurting his foot in the front end of the back-to-back set Thursday in Orlando, Bayless has become the latest in a long line of injured floor generals. Minnesota has already ruled Derrick Rose (ankle) and Tyus Jones (ankle) out for the contest, while Jeff Teague (foot) joins Bayless with the questionable tag. If both Teague and Bayless are sidelined, fifth-string option Isaiah Canaan would pick up all the minutes he can handle as the team's starter.
