Layman (toe) produced five points (2-7 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 0-1 FT) and three rebounds in 13 minutes off the bench Monday in the Timberwolves' 139-123 loss to the Mavericks.
Layman wasn't particularly effective while making his first appearance since Nov. 18, but the Timberwolves were likely just happy to have him back in the fold following a 41-game absence. Once his sprained left toe is further in the rear-view mirror, Layman could begin cutting into the playing time of starting forwards Josh Okogie and Juancho Hernangomez.
Layman (toe) will be available for Monday's game against Dallas, Dane Moore of ZoneCoverage.com reports.
Layman will return to the rotation after a 41-game absence due to a sprained left toe. As coach Ryan Saunders has made no indication of any plans to limit Layman's workload, the 25-year-old could see close to the 26.4 minutes he was averaging prior to the injury. Across 14 appearances this year, the Maryland product is averaging 10.5 points, 2.9 rebounds and 1.4 threes.
Layman (toe) is probable for Monday's game against Dallas.
Layman has been upgraded to probable after returning to practice toward the end of last week. While he hasn't played since Nov. 18, Layman was a productive member of the rotation prior to the injury. Over the Wolves' first 14 games, he posted averages of 10.5 points, 2.9 rebounds and 1.4 threes in 26.4 minutes per contest.
The Timberwolves announced Thursday that Layman (toe) has received clearance to resume practicing. He'll be re-evaluated in one week before Minnesota determines his availability for games.
Layman hasn't taken the floor since Nov. 18 due to a sprained left toe, missing each of the Timberwolves' final 39 games before the All-Star break. He'll remain sidelined for at least four more contests, but the fact that he's able to get back on the court in any fashion signals that the worst of the injury is likely behind him. Layman had averaged 10.5 points per game while shooting 46.2 percent from the floor in his 14 appearances (two starts) before sustaining the injury. Once he's cleared to play in games, Layman's return will likely have the most negative impact on Juancho Hernangomez and/or James Johnson.

According to Davidson, Layman still isn't jumping when he takes a shot, which likely means he'll remain sidelined for at least a few more contests.
