Reid scored 19 points (7-15 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT) to go along with nine rebounds, three steals and one assist in 33 minutes during Friday's 127-117 loss against the Celtics. Reid got his first start of the season with Karl-Anthony Towns sidelined due to a wrist injury, and he made a positive impact on both ends of the court. He should remain in this role ahead of Sunday's tough matchup at Denver.
Reid will start Friday's contest against the Celtics, Jace Frederick of St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Reid will be making the first start of his career as Karl-Anthony Towns (wrist) continues to be sidelined. In the three games this season that Reid has seen at least 20 minutes, he's averaged 12.7 points, 5.3 rebounds and 1.0 block.
Reid played a season-high 22 minutes off the bench Wednesday in the Timberwolves' 115-108 loss to the Hornets, finishing with 12 points (4-7 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 4-4 FT), six rebounds, one steal and one block. With Karl-Anthony Towns (wrist) sidelined, the Timberwolves chose to roll out a small-ball starting five featuring James Johnson at center, but Reid still saw a boost in playing time while the star big man was sidelined. Now that Gorgui Dieng is in Memphis, Reid looks like he'll have a clear path to a rotation spot for the rest of the season. The rookie has appeared in four consecutive games, averaging 11.0 points, 5.0 rebounds and 1.8 three-pointers in 14.8 minutes over that stretch while shooting 48.4 percent from the floor.
