Top Timberwolves News

  • Timberwolves' Jerryd Bayless: In line for increased minutes

    Bayless could be an increased role Friday against the Spurs, Jace Frederick of St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    With guard Tyus Jones (ankle) out for the next several days, it's reported that Bayless will switch off between guard and point guard depending of the offensive situation with teammate Derrick Rose for at least Friday's game against the Spurs.

  • Timberwolves' Tyus Jones: Avoids long-term injury

    Jones will have his sprained left ankle encased in a walking boot for the next several days and will be considered day to day after the boot is removed, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    After it was reported that Jones suffered a high-ankle sprain in Tuesday's loss to the 76ers, a long-term absence looked like a real possibility for the point guard. Fortunately, Wojnarowski's report suggests that Jones' injury isn't nearly as significant, though it's probably safe to rule him out for Friday's game against the Spurs and Sunday's game against the Suns for now. With both Jeff Teague and Derrick Rose back in action Tuesday, Jones' fantasy outlook was already trending downward before the injury, so the Duke product likely won't be a must-hold player in most leagues where he's currently rostered.

  • Timberwolves' Andrew Wiggins: Struggles in big loss

    Wiggins scored 12 points (4-14 FG, 4-6 FT) and totaled four rebounds along with a block and two steals over 27 minutes Tuesday against Philadelphia.

    Wiggins finished well below his season scoring average, as he was held to just 12 points on 28.6 percent shooting from the field. Although his point total was certainly disappointing Tuesday night, he managed to make up for it by submitting a well-rounded final line. The 23-year-old is averaging 23.0 points, 6.4 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.0 block and 1.0 steal over his previous five contests and figures to bounce back Friday against San Antonio.

  • Timberwolves' Jeff Teague: Turns in average outing

    Teague put up 11 points (4-9 FG, 3-4 FT) and collected a rebound along with two assists and two steals across 26 minutes Tuesday against Philadelphia.

    Teague finished with just two points in his last contest after tweaking his ankle, but he looked healthy and logged 26 minutes in an embarrassing 149-107 loss on the road. The 6-2 guard hasn't been overly impressive of late, averaging just 9.6 points and 2.6 rebounds over his last five games, although he has been effective in the assist column (6.8). The third-string point guard Tyus Jones went down with an ankle injury Tuesday evening, so it'll be up to Derrick Rose and Teague to handle point guard duties until Jones returns to health.

  • Timberwolves' Derrick Rose: Scores team-high 15 points

    Rose accrued 15 points (11-20 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 5-5 FT), 18 rebounds, three assists and two steals across 35 minutes Tuesday against the 76ers.

    Rose has missed seven of his team's last nine games due to injury, but he appears to have returned to health for good after leading his team in scoring off the bench. He's averaging 18.9 points, 2.8 rebounds and 4.8 helpers over 33 games so far this season. Tyus Jones went down with an ankle sprain during Tuesday's tilt, so Rose and Jeff Teague will see most if not all of the team's minutes at point guard for the time being.

  • Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Disappointing performance in loss

    Towns finished with 13 points (4-10 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 3-3 FT), three rebounds, two assists and two steals over 28 minutes Tuesday against Philadelphia.

    Towns was coming off a monster game Saturday against the Pelicans, but he took a big step back in a 149-107 loss. Tuesday night's performance appears to be nothing more than a blip on the radar, as he's averaging 23.6 points and 13.6 rebounds over his previous five contests even after a slow outing.

  • Timberwolves' Tyus Jones: Sprains ankle, X-rays negative

    Jones suffered a high left ankle sprain Tuesday against the 76ers, Jon Krawczynski of The Athletic reports. His X-rays returned negative.

    Jones seems to have avoided any structural damage, though it's certainly a possibility he will miss time. The Timberwolves' next game is Friday against the Spurs, so Jones will have some time to recover. More information should emerge in the coming days, but his fantasy value was already on the decline with both Jeff Teague (ankle) and Derrick Rose (ankle) cleared to play Tuesday.

  • Timberwolves' Tyus Jones: Suffers lower leg injury

    Jones suffered an apparent lower leg injury Tuesday against the 76ers and went to the locker room while putting little weight on his left leg, Tim Bontemps of ESPN.com reports.

    Jones appears to have hurt his ankle or foot, and he needed to be helped off the floor, so his return is very much in doubt. If he ends up missing time past Tuesday, Jerryd Bayless could be in line for extra minutes.

  • Timberwolves' Jeff Teague: Good to go Tuesday

    Teague (ankle) will play Tuesday against the 76ers.

    As expected, a balky ankle won't prevent Teague from assuming his regular spot in the starting lineup Tuesday. Over his last five games, the point guard is averaging 12.0 points, 8.4 assists, 2.8 rebounds and 1.8 steals across 27 minutes.

  • Timberwolves' Derrick Rose: Will play Tuesday

    Rose (ankle) will play Tuesday against the 76ers.

    Rose has missed six of the past seven games with an ankle sprain, but he'll be able to take the court Tuesday. Since December, he's averaging 18.9 points, 5.5 assists, 2.2 rebounds and 1.0 steal in 29.9 minutes.

  • Timberwolves' Jeff Teague: Expected to play

    Teague (ankle) is expected to play Tuesday against the 76ers, Dane Moore of ZoneCoverage.com reports.

    Teague aggravated his ankle injury Saturday against the Pelicans, but he was able to both go through practice Monday and participate in Tuesday's morning shootaround. While he hasn't officially been cleared to play, the expectation is that the veteran will take the court against Philadelphia.
