Timberwolves' Jaylen Nowell: Moves past illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nowell (illness) played 16 minutes in Sunday's 128-116 loss to the Nuggets, finishing with six points (2-5 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two assists and one rebound.

After siting out Friday versus Boston because of the illness, Nowell was cleared in advance of Sunday's contest and gained entry into coach Ryan Saunders' rotation with point guard D'Angelo Russell (rest) sitting out. Russell is scheduled to play Monday in Dallas, making Nowell a prime candidate to drop back out of the rotation.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nowell (illness) isn't listed on the injury report for Sunday's game at Denver.

The 20-year-old was sidelined for Friday's game against the Celtics due to the illness, but his absence will be limited to one game. Nowell has appeared in only nine NBA contests this season, so there's no guarantee he sees the court despite being healthy.

Timberwolves' Jaylen Nowell: Out with illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nowell was ruled out for Friday's game against the Celtics due to an illness.

Nowell won't be available for the first game out of the All-Star break due to the ailment. The 20-year-old has appeared in only two NBA games since Jan. 5, so his absence is unlikely to impact Minnesota's rotation.

Timberwolves' Jaylen Nowell: Assigned to G League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nowell was assigned to the G League on Wednesday.

Nowell hasn't appeared in an NBA game since Jan. 2, and that will likely continue to be the case unless the Timberwolves are dealing with significant backcourt injuries. Look for him to keep getting action in the G League.

Timberwolves' Jaylen Nowell: Called up by Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nowell was recalled by the Timberwolves ahead of Saturday's game against Oklahoma City.

Nowell hasn't been part of Ryan Saunders' rotations for much of the season, having seen action in just seven games on the season. That trend's liable to continue as the Timberwolves don't have any injuries aside from Jack Layman (toe), who's missed extensive time.

Timberwolves' Jaylen Nowell: Returns to G League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nowell had 12 points, three rebounds, one assist and one block in 12 minutes in his two games wince being recalled from Iowa, but he'll head back down with Minnesota off until Sunday.

Timberwolves' Jaylen Nowell: Scores 12 in 16 minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nowell registered 12 points (4-11 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 2-3 FT) and two rebounds in 16 minutes during Wednesday's 106-104 loss to the Bucks.

Nowell wasn't shy, hoisting double-digit shot attempts even in a modest reserve role. With that being said, he managed career highs in scoring and rebounding while matching his career high in minutes. Depending on what the team's injury report looks like heading into Thursday's matchup versus the Warriors, the rookie guard could potentially see a decent share of playing time, though he's likely a dart throw in daily leagues at the very best.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nowell was recalled from the G League and will be available for Wednesday's contest against the Bucks.

Timberwolves' Jaylen Nowell: Puts up 26 points in G League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nowell tallied 26 points (9-18 FG, 5-10 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 11 rebounds, four assists and one block in 36 minutes Tuesday in the G League Iowa Wolves' 142-128 loss to the Rio Grande Valley Vipers.

Though he's signed to an NBA deal, Nowell has made only two appearances with the Timberwolves during his first professional season. As a result, the 20-year-old should make regular trips to Iowa throughout the season in order to pick up some much-needed playing time. He'll likely handle a featured role for Iowa whenever he suits up in the G League.

Additionally, while the guard has already made his NBA debut, appearing in two games in November while totaling three points, three assists and one rebound over 15 minutes of play, he will look to transfer his impressive play from the G League to the NBA so he can try to secure a more permanent spot on Minnesota's roster.

Timberwolves' Jaylen Nowell: Performing well since return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Timberwolves' Jaylen Nowell: Recalled from Iowa
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nowell was recalled from Iowa ahead of Saturday's game against Phoenix.

Nowell's appeared in one game for Minnesota so far this year, failing to record a stat in one minute of play. Shabazz Napier (hamstring) is unlikely to play Saturday, which could open up a limited role off the bench for the rookie, who was drafted with the 43rd overall pick in the 2019 NBA draft.

Timberwolves' Jaylen Nowell: Assigned to Iowa
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nowell was assigned to the Iowa Wolves on Saturday.

In a move that likely foreshadows Jeff Teague's (illness) return, Nowell was sent down to the G-League ahead of Sunday's tilt with Denver. The rookie saw action in a single game for the Timberwolves, failing to record a statistic in a lone minute of play. He'll likely see extensive run in Iowa, though he's expected to merely serve as rotational depth for Minnesota this year.

Timberwolves' Jaylen Nowell: Back from G League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Timberwolves recalled Nowell from the G League's Iowa Wolves on Wednesday.

Minnesota plucked both Nowell and two-way player Jordan McLaughlin from the G League ranks to provide the NBA team with some extra depth in the backcourt ahead of Wednesday's game in Memphis. With Minnesota at risk of not having either of its top two point guards available in Jeff Teague (illness) and Shabazz Napier (hamstring), both Nowell and McLaughlin stand good chances of making their NBA debuts and playing meaningful minutes versus the Grizzlies.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Timberwolves have assigned Nowell to the G League on Monday.

Timberwolves' Jaylen Nowell: Reaches deal with Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nowell agreed Tuesday with the Timberwolves on a contract that includes around $1.4 million guaranteed in 2019-20 followed by three years of team options, Darren Wolfson of Channel 5 Saint Paul reports.

The reigning Pac-12 Player of the Year slipped into the second round in the draft in June before the Timberwolves nabbed him with the 43rd overall pick. The Wolves weren't able to get a glimpse of Nowell in the Las Vegas Summer League while he dealt with a minor quadriceps injury, but the team's decision to sign him implies there's no concern about his availability for training camp. The 20-year-old isn't expected to capture a rotation role as a rookie and could move back and forth between the NBA and the G League on a regular basis.
