Muhammad has requested that Minnesota move or waive him before Thursday's NBA trade deadline, ESPN reports.
Muhammad did not play in Saturday's win over New Orleans. He hasn't played in 24 of Minnesota's past 33 games as he's been stuck on the bench and fallen out of favor with head coach Tom Thibodeau. He's played over ten minutes in a game just once since Nov. 24.
Muhammad finished with four points (2-3 FG) and one rebound across four minutes in Monday's 127-99 win over the Cavaliers.
It took a contest in which the Timberwolves led by as many as 41 points in order for Muhammad to see the floor for just the second time in 19 games. Muhammad's defensive shortcomings have resulted in him falling out of the rotation in favor of Marcus Georges-Hunt, who typically only sees light run behind high-minute starting wings Jimmy Butler and Andrew Wiggins.
Muhammad did not play in Thursday's win over Sacramento due to a coach's decision.
Muhammad has played only once in the last eight games and even then got only three minutes. His inability to get off the bench Thursday was particularly notable since head coach Tom Thibodeau used six players off his bench amid a blowout win. Muhammad looks buried on the bench at this point.
Muhammad poured in nine points (3-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-4 FT) and added two rebounds over nine minutes in Saturday's 118-110 loss to the Suns.
The veteran forward made the most of his time on the court, leading the second unit in scoring and posting his second-best point total of the season. Muhammad is seeing his lowest amount of minutes (14.6) since his rookie campaign, rendering him a fantasy non-factor in all but the deepest of formats for the time being.
Muhammad did not score and had one rebound in 12 minutes in Friday's win over Oklahoma City.
With the return of Jimmy Butler from an illness, Muhammad came off the bench after being in the starting lineup the last two games. Muhammad may struggle to find minutes off the bench with Andrew Wiggins and Jimmy Butler likely taking up huge workloads on the wing and Jamal Crawford likely set to get significant minutes as a reserve.
