  • Timberwolves' Kyle Anderson: Does not see the floor

    Anderson did not see the floor during Tuesday's 105-93 Game 2 win over the Suns.

    Anderson carried a questionable tag into Game 2 after picking up a hip injury in Game 1, but despite being cleared to play, Anderson never left the bench. Instead, Minnesota rolled with an eight-man rotation with Nickeil Alexander-Walker playing 31 minutes off the bench, while Anthony Edwards (38) and Jaden McDaniels (41) also played heavy minutes on the wing.

  • Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Limited in Game 2 victory

    Towns finished Tuesday's 105-93 win over the Suns in Game 2 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals with 12 points (3-7 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 5-5 FT), eight rebounds, one assist and one steal over 24 minutes.

    The coaching staff continues to monitor Towns' minutes after he made a late-season return from a knee injury. He also picked up four fouls in quick time, perhaps limiting his time on the floor Tuesday. Over the Timberwolves' first two playoff matchups this year, he's averaged 15.5 points, 7.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists in 25.5 minutes per game. Minnesota has won each game by double-digit margins, so it's possible Towns' minutes increase slightly when the team is in a closer matchup.

  • Timberwolves' Mike Conley: Vintage performance Tuesday

    Conley ended Tuesday's 105-93 win over the Suns in Game 2 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals with 18 points (7-13 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four rebounds, four assists and two steals across 32 minutes.

    Conley assumed more responsibility on the offensive end of the floor to help lead Minnesota to the win. Despite not always putting up noteworthy production, Conley is a vital piece for the Timberwolves. He provides them with veteran leadership, as well as a cool head when the going gets tough. Minnesota will look to take a commanding lead in the series when the team lines up for Game 3 Friday.

    McDaniels shone in the victory, leading all scorers with 25 points. Known for his defensive abilities, it was on the offensive end that he did his damage. He was part of a balanced effort by the Timberwolves, taking down the Suns to establish a 2-0 series lead.

  • Timberwolves' Kyle Anderson: Leaves early with hip injury

    Anderson won't return to Saturday's game against the Suns due to a right hip pointer.

    Anderson left in the second quarter due to a hip injury and will finish the game with two points (1-2 FG) across five minutes off the bench. The Timberwolves haven't shed light on the severity of Anderson's injury, so he should be viewed as day-to-day in advance of Tuesday's Game 2.

  • Timberwolves' Kyle Anderson: Questionable to return Saturday

    Anderson (hip) is questionable to return to Saturday's game against the Suns.

    Anderson returned to the bench but headed back to the locker room as he was still in pain, and it remains to be seen if he'll make it back to the court. If he's not able to return, Naz Reid and Nickeil Alexander-Walker could be in line for more minutes off the bench.

    Anderson looked in pain after a foul and was seen grabbing his right hip before heading to the locker room to be checked by a trainer. The Timberwolves would lose one of their best on-ball defenders if he's unable to return to the contest.
