  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Hits for 15 in Saturday's win

    McDaniels totaled 15 points (5-6 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT), seven rebounds, two assists, three blocks and one steal across 25 minutes off the bench during Saturday's 130-117 victory over the Grizzlies.

    The second-year forward came through in his first career playoff game, posting his best scoring total off the bench since late February. McDaniels scored a total of 24 points in his prior four games, however, and the 21-year-old remains an erratic contributor in a secondary role for Minnesota.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Feeling good after return

    Head coach Chris Finch said Thursday that McDaniels (ankle) is feeling "just fine, physically" after making his return to action Tuesday against Washington, Jon Krawczynski of The Athletic reports.

    While McDaniels is listed as questionable for Thursday night's game against San Antonio, it sounds as though Finch is expecting him to play, as he told reporters that he's hoping to get McDaniels more minutes and more usage over the team's final two regular-season contests. Prior to playing Tuesday, McDaniels had missed a string of nine straight games with a sprained left ankle.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Questionable Thursday

    McDaniels (ankle) is questionable for Thursday's game against the Spurs.

    McDaniels returned from a nine-game absence and played 15 minutes in Tuesday's loss to the Wizards, so he could see a similar workload Thursday if he's cleared before tipoff. The 21-year-old is averaging 9.3 points, 4.3 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 25.9 minutes per game this season.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Poor numbers in return

    McDaniels (ankle) finished with zero points (0-1 FG), two rebounds and one assist in 15 minutes Tuesday in the Timberwolves' 132-114 loss to the Wizards.

    McDaniels offered little production and was a minus-7 during his time on the court, but the Timberwolves were likely just happy to have a key piece of their second unit back on the floor after he missed the previous three weeks of action. Prior to getting hurt, McDaniels was in a near-even timeshare at power forward with started Jarred Vanderbilt, but Vanderbilt held a five-minute edge in Tuesday's contest.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Available Tuesday

    McDaniels will be back in action for the first time since March 14, but given the minutes restriction, he's probably best avoided in DFS contests.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Upgraded to questionable

    McDaniels (ankle) has been upgraded to questionable for Tuesday's game against the Wizards.

    McDaniels suffered a high-ankle sprain in mid-March and has been sidelined since. However, he appears to be progressing towards a return and has been listed as questionable for the first time since the initial injury. When he does eventually return, the second-year forward will likely operate under a minutes limit to avoid any potential setbacks.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Out at least another week

    Timberwolves head coach Chris Finch said Wednesday that McDaniels (ankle) has been cleared for some basketball activity and will be re-evaluated in one week, Chris Hine of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    McDaniels suffered a high-ankle sprain in mid-March and was expected to miss at least two weeks. However, that timeline has now been extended to three weeks and may even continue into the postseason. In his absence, Jarred Vanderbilt and Taurean Prince should both continue to see increased playing time.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Won't play Wednesday

    McDaniels suffered a high-ankle sprain in mid-March and was expected to miss at least two weeks.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Dealing with high-ankle sprain

    Coach Chris Finch said Wednesday that McDaniels is dealing with a high-ankle sprain, Jace Frederick of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    McDaniels sustained his injury Monday against the Spurs and is slated to miss at least two weeks before he's re-evaluated near the end of March. However, his diagnosis signals that he could be sidelined longer than two weeks. Jarred Vanderbilt (quadriceps) and Taurean Prince should see an uptick in playing time in McDaniels' absence.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: To be reassessed in two weeks

    McDaniels suffered a sprained left ankle during Monday's game against the Spurs and will be re-evaluated in two weeks.

    McDaniels has been an important part of the Wolves' defensive gameplan. He's started 31 games this season, with averages of 8.8 points, 4.5 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.1 blocks in those games. At best, it sounds like he could return at the end of the month, but fantasy managers should be prepared for the forward to miss time into April, possibly bumping up against the postseason. While McDaniels is shelved, more minutes will be in store for Jarred Vanderbilt (quadriceps), Taurean Prince and other forwards.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Suffers ankle injury

    McDaniels left Monday's game against the Spurs after suffering an ankle injury, Jace Frederick of St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    McDaniels suffered the injury during the second half and had to be helped to the locker room. The team did not provide any further updates, but he was unsurprisingly unable to return. If McDaniels is forced to miss an extended period of time, look for Taurean Prince and Josh Okogie to step into more playing time.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Starting Saturday

    McDaniels will start Saturday's game against the Heat.

    With Jarred Vanderbilt (quadriceps) out, McDaniels joins the starters. In his past five starts, he's averaged 12.0 points, 5.0 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1.2 blocks in 26.8 minutes.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Outdoes Vanderbilt in move to bench

    McDaniels tallied 12 points (6-9 FG, 0-1 3Pt), three rebounds, three blocks and one assist in 32 minutes Friday in the Timberwolves' 118-110 loss to the Magic.

    With both Anthony Edwards and Jarred Vanderbilt healthy and in the lineup for the first time since Feb. 28, McDaniels headed to the bench following a five-game run in the starting five. The demotion to the second unit didn't come with a decreased role, as McDaniels saw 12 more minutes than Vanderbilt and handily outplayed him. Even if Vanderbilt retains his spot on the top unit moving forward, McDaniels should continue to split minutes with him at power forward and remain relevant in at least 14-team leagues and deeper.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Coming off bench

    McDaniels will come off the bench Friday against the Magic.
