Timberwolves' Nemanja Bjelica: Scores five points in Wednesday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bjelica contributed five points (2-5 FG, 1-4 3Pt), six rebounds, and two assists in 17 minutes during Wednesday's 140-138 overtime loss to the Cavaliers.

Bjelica is averaging 15.5 minutes per game over the last six contests since returning to a reserve role. He has not scored in double figures once during this recent stretch, though he has at least been providing fairly well-rounded stats. With that being said, barring a blockbuster trade or injuries to the frontcourt that open up time, it's doubtful that Bjelica will be able to carve out enough of a role to attain relevance outside of the deepest leagues.

Timberwolves' Nemanja Bjelica: Heads back to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bjelica, with Jimmy Butler (knee) re-entering the starting five, will head to the bench for Saturday's game against the Nets.

As expected, Bjelica will head back to a reserve role with Butler back in the fold. Bjelica has averaged 11.5 points and 7.0 rebounds across 33.4 minutes in four starts with Butler sidelined, but his numbers may regress closer to his usual 5.5 points and 2.5 rebounds across 13.5 minutes with Butler back.

Timberwolves' Nemanja Bjelica: Ejected in Tuesday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bjelica was ejected from Tuesday's loss at Orlando in the second quarter after getting into a fight with Arron Afflalo.

Afflalo threw a punch and Bjelica then wrapped Affalo in a headlock, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Bjelica scored two points in five minutes before the ejection. It doesn't sound like he'll face any further suspension for the incident.

Timberwolves' Nemanja Bjelica: Ends shooting slump
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bjelica scored five points with four rebounds in 15 minutes in Sunday's win over the Lakers. He was 2-of-4 from the field and 1-of-3 from three-point range.

Bjelica had been in a slump since returning from a foot injury that kept him out for a month, going 2-of-13 from the field and 0-for-5 from three-point range in his last four games. Bjelica may be the one T-Wolves reserve that could get significant minutes if he can find the three-point accuracy he had before the injury.

Timberwolves' Nemanja Bjelica: Struggles with shot in Sunday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bjelica scored four points with two rebounds and two steals in 17 minutes in Sunday's win over the Pacers, but was just 2-of-11 from the field and missed all three three-point shots.

Bjelica has struggled since returning from a foot injury that kept him out for a month. He's 2-of-13 from the field and 0-for-5 from three-point range in his last four games. He'll need to find his three-point shot again to get any minutes off the bench.
