Beverley notched 14 points (5-13 FG, 0-5 3Pt, 4-5 FT), two rebounds, five assists, two blocks and three steals across 34 minutes during Thursday's 104-95 loss to the Grizzlies. The veteran guard recorded multiple blocks and steals in the same game for the first time since Feb. 15. Beverley's usually made a bigger impact as a defender throughout his career, and through the first three games of this series, he's averaging 10.0 points, 5.0 assists, 3.3 boards, 1.3 steals and 1.3 blocks.
Beverley amassed seven points (2-8 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 2-4 FT), 11 rebounds, three assists, one block and one steal in 33 minutes during Tuesday's 109-104 victory over the Clippers. When the Clippers didn't give Beverley the contract he wanted in the offseason, the veteran jumped ship and joined the Timberwolves. He made his former team painfully aware of what they gave up in the dramatic come-from-behind win. His role as defensive stalwart and agitator was crucial for the victory, although his intangibles weren't fully reflected in his stat line.
Beverley (ankle) will play Sunday against the Bulls, Wolves radio voice Alan Horton reports. While the Wolves will rest Karl-Anthony Towns, and D'Angelo Russell (illness) won't be available, it looks like Minnesota will use most of its regular rotation in what's ultimately a meaningless Game 82. With that in mind, it's very possible head coach Chris Finch could pull back on his starters' minutes, so rostering Beverley in DFS contests could be a risky proposition.
Beverley (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against Chicago. Beverley returned to the court Thursday against the Spurs but continues to deal with his sore right ankle ahead of Sunday's matchup. If he's held out against the Bulls, Malik Beasley and Jaylen Nowell should see increased run.
Beverley (ankle) will play in Thursday's game against the Spurs, Dane Moore of BringMeTheNews.com reports.
