  • Timberwolves' Nathan Knight: Nears double-double in depth role

    Knight closed with 17 points (7-12 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-3 FT), eight rebounds and three assists in 16 minutes during Sunday's 124-120 loss to the Bulls.

    Knight hadn't appeared in any of the last five games, but he saw increased work in the regular-season finale since the Timberwolves leaned on their bench players ahead of the play-in tournament. The 24-year-old is unlikely to be part of the team's rotation during the play-in tournament.

  • Timberwolves' Nathan Knight: Dominates in G League win

    Knight totaled 33 points (11-21 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 6-8 FT), 12 rebounds, four blocks, two steals and one assist in 35 minutes during Friday's 107-103 win over the Oklahoma City Blue.

    Knight completely dominated during his first appearance with Iowa this season, finishing with game highs in points, rebounds and blocks. Shortly after the contest, he was transferred back to the NBA club.

  • Timberwolves' Nathan Knight: Transferred to NBA club

    Knight was transferred to the Timberwolves on Friday.

    Knight finished Iowa's 107-103 win over the Oklahoma City Blue with a game-high 33 points and 12 rebounds. He hasn't played double-digit minutes at the NBA level since Jan. 3, so it's unlikely he garners a big enough role to be fantasy relevant during his stint with Minnesota.

  • Timberwolves' Nathan Knight: Transferred to G League

    Knight was transferred to the G League's Iowa Wolves on Thursday.

    Knight had been with the parent club since late December, but he didn't see the floor in any of the last eight games. He should see more run in the G League after he averaged 3.1 points and 2.1 rebounds in 6.9 minutes per game across 28 appearances with Minnesota to begin the year.

  • Timberwolves' Nathan Knight: Excels in first career start

    Knight contributed 20 points (8-11 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 2-3 FT), 11 rebounds, four assists, one block and one steal in 29 minutes during Monday's 108-103 win over the Celtics.

    Knight was recalled from the G League last week and his first start couldn't have gone any better, as he missed just three shots en route to posting a career-high scoring figure while also ending with a double-double. Minnesota is missing its top three centers due to the health and safety protocols, so Knight should remain in the starting five for at least a few more games.

  • Timberwolves' Nathan Knight: Making first NBA start

    Knight will start Monday's game against the Celtics.

    Knight was recalled from the G League last week and will make his first NBA start with Minnesota missing its top three centers due to the health and safety protocols. Knight has averaged only 5.3 minutes in his 14 NBA appearances this season but is poised for a much heavier workload Monday.

  • Timberwolves' Nathan Knight: Transferred to parent club

    Knight was transferred to the Timberwolves on Monday.

    Knight was recalled by Minnesota in mid-November and averaged 2.4 points in 4.6 minutes per game. The 6-foot-10 big man will likely provide depth to the Timberwolves' frontcourt while Jarred Vanderbilt and Taurean Prince are both sidelined due to COVID-19 protocols.

  • Timberwolves' Nathan Knight: Transferred to G League

    Knight was transferred to the Iowa Wolves on Saturday.

    Knight was recalled by Minnesota in mid-November and averaged 2.4 points in 4.6 minutes per game during his time with the parent club. He'll likely see additional run in the G League.

  • Timberwolves' Nathan Knight: Available Monday

    Knight was recalled from the Iowa Wolves of the G League and is available for Monday's game against the Suns.

    The 24-year-old was sent back to the G League earlier Monday, but he'll end up sticking with the NBA club with Naz Reid (foot) unavailable. Knight could see some playing time as a reserve option at center.

  • Timberwolves' Nathan Knight: Back in G League

    The Timberwolves returned Knight to the G League's Iowa Wolves on Monday.

    Knight made a two-minute cameo off the bench for Minnesota in the front end of a back-to-back set Friday against the Lakers, but he'll head back to the G League in search of more regular playing time. As a two-way player, Knight will most likely spend the majority of the campaign in Iowa.

  • Timberwolves' Nathan Knight: Stars in first game with Iowa

    Knight produced 31 points (13-25 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 13 rebounds, two assists and one steal across 31 minutes during Saturday's 115-100 win over Sioux Falls Skyforce.

    Knight dominated in his debut for Iowa, notching game-highs in points and rebounds. The 24-year-old spent last season with the Hawks on a two-way contract, appearing in 33 contests and averaging 9.5 minutes per game. Now in the Timberwolves organization, the 6-foot-10 center has an uphill battle to make the NBA roster, as Karl-Anthony Town, Naz Reid and Jarred Vanderbilt have solidified themselves as the top-three big men for Minnesota. However, if he continues to produce like he did Saturday, it may be difficult to keep him at the G League level.

  • Timberwolves' Nathan Knight: Heads to G League

    The Timberwolves transferred Knight to the G League's Iowa Wolves on Monday.

    The two-way big man has made just two appearances at the NBA level this season, logging four minutes in total.

  • Timberwolves' Nathan Knight: Going to G League

    Knight was assigned to the G League on Saturday, freelance NBA reporter Dane Moore reports.

    The Timberwolves do not need a fourth big man to back up Karl-Anthony Towns, Naz Reid and Jarred Vanderbilt. Knight played four minutes across their three NBA games this month. He will take the court for the Iowa Wolves against the Sioux Falls Skyforce on Saturday.

  • Timberwolves' Nathan Knight: Not on injury report

    Knight (toe) is not on the injury report ahead of Monday's preseason game against the Clippers.

    Knight was battling a sprained toe heading into the weekend, and it was likely part of the reason he was limited to just five minutes of action in Friday's overtime loss to the Nuggets. His removal from the injury report indicates that he should be available in full capacity Monday night.

  • Timberwolves' Nathan Knight: Questionable Friday

    Knight is questionable for Friday's preseason matchup against the Nuggets due to a great left toe sprain.

    Knight is on a two-way contract with the Timberwolves. He may be able to play through the issue Friday, but it wouldn't be surprising for the team to exercise caution since it's an exhibition contest.

  • Timberwolves' Nathan Knight: Signs two-way contract

    Knight has agreed to a two-way contract with the Timberwolves, Michael Scotto of USA Today reports.

    After going undrafted in 2020, Knight was signed to a two-way contract with the Hawks and appeared in 33 games. The 23-year-old averaged 3.8 points and 2.2 rebounds in 9.5 minutes per game. The 6-foot-10 big man was reportedly joining Atlanta again for Summer League before he was scooped up by Minnesota. It's unlikely that Knight gets much run with the Timberwolves as Karl-Anthony Towns and Naz Reid have solidified themselves as the top two centers on the roster.

  • Hawks' Nathan Knight: Playing in Summer League

    Knight will play in Summer League for Atlanta, Zach Hood of Peachtree Hoops reports.

    Knight went undrafted in 2020 and ended up seeing relatively consistent run with the Hawks. He appeared in 33 games and averaged 3.8 points and 2.2 rebounds in 9.5 minutes per contest.

  • Hawks' Nathan Knight: Posts double-double

    Knight recorded 13 points (6-9 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 0-2 FT), 10 rebounds and two blocks Sunday against the Rockets in a 124-95 win.

    Knight arguably had his best performance of the season, logging a double-double and a season-high 10 rebounds. The center received an abundance of playing time because of Clint Capela's Achilles injury forcing him to sit out. Knight will likely not see the court much in the playoffs.
