Aldrich (coach's decision) didn't leave the bench in the Timberwolves' 127-99 win over the Cavaliers on Monday. Aldrich had seen spot minutes in garbage time in three of the Timberwolves' last six games, so it's somewhat surprising he didn't see any run in a contest Minnesota led by as many as 41 points. At any rate, it will take an injury to two of the Timberwolves' four key rotation members in the frontcourt (Karl-Anthony Towns, Taj Gibson, Gorgui Dieng and Nemanja Bjelica) before Aldrich sees even consistent run off the bench.
Aldrich (ankle) is available to play in Wednesday's matchup with the Spurs. Aldrich was available to play in an emergency situation Monday, but didn't end up seeing the court. It's unclear if he'll ultimately play on Wednesday either, though the fact that he's available indicates he's likely nearing a full recovery of his sprained right ankle. Aldrich should provide depth at center behind Karl-Anthony Towns and Taj Gibson.
Aldrich (ankle) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Spurs. Aldrich was available to play in Monday's matchup with the Jazz, but only in an emergency situation and ultimately didn't end up seeing the floor as he continues to nurse a sprained right ankle. He's now been downgraded to questionable ahead of Wednesday's contest and a final decision on his availability may not come until just prior to tip off. Gorgui Dieng (finger) is also doubtful, meaning the Timberwolves could once again be short on bodies in the frontcourt.
Aldrich (ankle) is available to play on an emergency basis for Monday's game against the Jazz. Aldrich has dealt with a right ankle sprain, missing the last two games because of it. With both Gorgui Dieng (finger) and Justin Patton (foot) out, the Timberwolves are hurting for depth in the frontcourt, but it sounds like they'll do everything in their power to keep Aldrich off the floor. That said, if Aldrich does play, he likely wouldn't see a very big workload.
Aldrich (ankle) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Jazz. Aldrich was held out of Saturday's game against the Suns with a right ankle sprain and he's still dealing with some lingering discomfort. He'll continue to receive treatment overnight and then will likely test out the ankle during morning shootaround on Monday. Look for an update shortly after that, though for now, Aldrich will remain questionable.
