  • Timberwolves' Jordan Hill: Waived by Timberwolves
    By RotoWire Staff

    Hill was waived by the Timberwolves on Monday, Jon Krawczynski of the Associated Press reports. Hill's contract was non-guaranteed for next season if he was waived before the end of June, so the move isn't all that unexpected, especially after the Wolves acquired Jimmy Butler via trade on draft night. With Butler in tow and under contract for two more seasons, the Wolves are expected to ramp up their efforts to return to the postseason, which means clearing as much cap space as possible to pursue impact free agents this offseason. The 29-year-old Hill appeared in only seven games for the Wolves in 2016-17 after falling out of favor with coach Tom Thibodeau early in the year.

  • Hill (coach's decision) didn't see the floor in a 100-93 loss to the Spurs on Tuesday. The season-ending injury to Nemanja Bjelica (foot) doesn't look like it will open up a spot in the rotation for Hill, especially after the team addressed their lack of depth at forward by signing Omri Casspi. Hill has made just one appearance since Dec. 26, playing a sole minute in that contest.

  • Hill (coach's decision) failed to see the floor in a 116-108 loss to the Cavaliers on Tuesday. Coach Tom Thibodeau continues to trot out a tight eight- or nine-man rotation in most games, affording no opportunities of late for Hill to take the floor. The veteran big man's last appearance came Dec. 26 against the Hawks, meaning he's been stuck on the bench for the last 25 games.

  • Hill (coach's decision) didn't see the court in a 122-114 loss to the Spurs on Tuesday. Hill was briefly included in the Timberwolves' bench rotation during a two-game stretch around Christmastime, but he's since dropped out of the bench mix. He hasn't played in any of the Wolves' last 11 games and has just five total appearances to his name on the season.

  • Hill scored four points with six rebounds in a season-high 19 minutes in Sunday's loss to Oklahoma City. "I just wanted to get a look at him," head coach Tom Thibodeau told the MInneapolis Star Tribune. "He played very well in the first half for his first time out. His offense and his rebounding is something I wanted to see and he's got experience against these guys, too." Hill played more minutes Sunday than the combined minutes he had played all season. Perhaps this will begin to get him regular playing time off the bench, but Thibodeau has given few minutes to his reserves.
