  • Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Receives treatment for injuries

    Towns underwent stem cell treatment and platelet-rich plasma injections in both knees, his left ankle, left wrist and right finger Friday, Ramona Shelburne of ESPN.com reports.

    Shelburne relays that Towns played through a cyst on his left ankle, a subluxated left wrist, an aggravated joint on the middle finger of his shooting hand and pain in both knees during the Timberwolves' postseason run. The talented big man hopes the treatments he received Friday will help him avoid offseason surgery. As of now, Towns is expected to be available for the start of the 2022-23 campaign.

  • Timberwolves' Naz Reid: Listed as questionable

    Reid is a late addition to the Timberwolves' injury report ahead of Friday's Game 6 versus the Grizzlies, as he is now listed as questionable due to personal reasons.

    This news comes shortly before tip-off. If Reid is unable to go, Jarred Vanderbilt would presumably be the primary backup center behind Karl-Anthony Towns.

  • Timberwolves' D'Angelo Russell: Comes close to double-double

    Russell registered 12 points (4-10 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-3 FT), two rebounds, eight assists and two steals across 39 minutes during Tuesday's 111-109 loss to the Grizzlies.

    Russell might have ended two assists away from posting a double-double, but he needs to take a bigger role on offense since he only attempted 10 shots -- that's a meager amount for someone who should be the third scoring option behind Karl-Anthony Towns and Anthony Edwards. He hasn't scored more than 12 points in four of the five games in the series, but what's even more concerning is the fact that he has just 32.3 percent from the field in that span.

  • Timberwolves' Anthony Edwards: Struggles from field

    Edwards ended with 22 points (8-20 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 3-4 FT) and one rebound in 35 minutes during Tuesday's 111-109 loss to Memphis.

    Edwards didn't have his best game from a shooting perspective since he needed 20 shots to score 22 points, but he was just seconds away from being the hero when he drained a corner three in the dying moments of the fourth quarter. Despite the loss and the shooting struggles, Edwards has scored at least 20 points in four of the five games in the current series.

  • Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Double-double not enough

    Towns produced 28 points (7-15 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 9-9 FT), 12 rebounds, one assist, two blocks and three steals in 35 minutes during Tuesday's 111-109 loss to the Grizzlies.

    Towns has four double-doubles in five games during the current series against the Grizzlies, and while he produced a strong output on both ends of the court, his efforts were not enough to lift Minnesota to what would've been a 3-2 series lead. While Towns has been heavily criticized for his performance in Game 3 of the series, he's still averaging 22.6 points and 11.0 rebounds per game while shooting 54.1 percent from the field and 52.6 percent from deep in the current series.
