Timberwolves' Jeff Teague: Exercises player option
Teague has opted to exercise his $19-million player option for the 2019-20 season, Jon Krawczynski of The Athletic reports.
Given that Teague will be entering his age 31 season and played just 42 games in 2018-19, this was to be expected. That said, he managed to set a career high in assists per game (8.2). His scoring took a hit, however, and that may have been due to his recurring injury situation. He scored just 12.1 points per game -- his lowest mark since the 2010-11 season.... See More ...

Timberwolves' Cameron Reynolds: Ends season with career night
Reynolds tallied a career-high 19 points (7-11 FG, 5-7 3Pt), six rebounds and one assist in 26 minutes Wednesday in the Timberwolves' 99-95 loss to the Nuggets.
The rookie's banner night was fueled by some hot shooting from downtown along with elevated minutes being available thanks to the team holding several key perimeter players out with injuries. Reynolds' contract for 2019-20 isn't guaranteed, so it's uncertain if he'll break camp as a member of the Timberwolves roster despite enjoying some decent moments in his first taste of the NBA. Over 19 outings with Minnesota, he averaged 5.0 points, 1.6 rebounds and 1.1 triples in 13.6 minutes per game while shooting 42.3 percent from the field and 41.2 percent from distance....

Timberwolves' Dario Saric: Frustrating season comes to an end
Saric ended with 11 points (4-13 FG, 0-5 3Pt, 3-3 FT), seven rebounds, and three assists in 29 minutes during Wednesday's 99-95 loss to the Nuggets.
Saric brought to an end his somber season, scoring just 11 points in the Timberwolves loss to Denver. Saric has been disappointing since joining the Timberwolves and given the fact a number of players have been sidelined for significant periods of time, his poor production is even more concerning. Heading into next season, he is certainly not going to be a player to target in standard formats, depending of course on the offseason moves the Timberwolves may or may not make.... See More ...

Timberwolves' Andrew Wiggins: Leads team with 25 points in loss
Wiggins tallied 25 points (11-20 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 0-1 FT), five rebounds, and four assists in 36 minutes during Wednesday's 99-95 loss to Denver.
Wiggins paced the Timberwolves with 25 points in Wednesday's loss, bringing to an end what was a disappointing season for both himself and the team. He continues to be one of the more frustrating players across all fantasy formats, with his upside typically outweighed by his lack of effort on both ends of the floor. He continues to struggle from the free-throw line and outside of a few random performances, his defense in basically non-existent.... See More ... See Less
Timberwolves' Gorgui Dieng: Finishes the season in style
Dieng amassed 18 points (8-20 FG, 2-4 3Pt), 11 rebounds, three steals, and two assists in 34 minutes during Wednesday's 99-95 loss to Denver.
Dieng stepped up for the second game in a row Wednesday, ending with 18 points and 11 rebounds in 34 minutes. His last two efforts certainly demonstrate his ability to have fantasy value when afforded the playing time. Unfortunately for him, that seems unlikely as long as he is playing behind Karl-Anthony Towns. If he manages to somehow change teams, his role could become more prominent and therefore also increase his overall value.... See More ... See Less
Timberwolves' Jeff Teague: Underwent successful ankle procedure
Teague successfully underwent a debridement of his left ankle.
Teague was able to play in just 42 games this season after dealing with an ankle injury. The surgery doesn't seem to be anything serious, as the procedure was done to clean out around the injured ankle. It seems as though he should be good to go for training camp next season, but a more definitive timeline should come out in the near future.... See More ... See Less
Timberwolves' Taj Gibson: Ruled out Wednesday
Gibson (calf) has been ruled out of Wednesday's game against the Nuggets.
Gibson's season is officially over, ending the season with 10 consecutive absences. He'll finish the season averaging 10.8 points and 6.5 rebounds over 24.1 minutes per games.... See More ... See Less
Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Ruled out Wednesday
Towns (knee) has been out for Wednesday's game against Denver, Christian Clark of BSNDenver.com reports.
Towns will miss Wednesday's season finale due to inflammation in his right knee. For the 2018-19 season, Towns put up 24.4 points, 12.4 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 1.6 blocks in 33.1 minutes per game.... See More ... See Less
Timberwolves' Jerryd Bayless: Questionable Wednesday
Bayless (ankle) is questionable for Wednesday's regular-season finale against the Nuggets, Mike Singer of The Denver Post reports.
Bayless has missed the past two games due to a right ankle injury, and it's possible we've seen the last of him this season. More information may arrive closer to tipoff.... See More ... See Less
Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Doubtful Wednesday
Towns (knee) is doubtful for Wednesday's finale against the Nuggets.
It's likely Towns will sit out for the second straight game, and he's probably played his final game of the year. Assuming that's the case, he'll finish averaging 24.4 points, 12.4 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 1.6 blocks in 33.1 minutes.... See More ... See Less
Timberwolves' Gorgui Dieng: Steps up in place of Towns
Dieng started at center and supplied 16 points (5-9 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 5-6 FT), seven rebounds, five assists, one steal and one block across 29 minutes Tuesday in the Timberwolves' 120-100 loss to the Raptors.
With Karl-Anthony Towns (knee) and Taj Gibson (calf) both sitting out, Dieng entered the starting five for the first time all season and turned in a well-rounded line to pay dividends for those that rolled with him in DFS. The 29-year-old has been trending upward of late with averages of 14.0 points, 5.1 boards and 2.1 assists in 19.7 minutes per game over his last seven outings. He'll make for an excellent streaming option again in Wednesday's season finale in Denver in the event Towns and Gibson are once again sidelined.... See More ... See Less
Timberwolves' Taj Gibson: Out Tuesday
Gibson (calf) will not play Tuesday against Toronto, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports.
No surprise here, as Gibson will remain sidelined for the 10th consecutive contest. The veteran will likely sit out the season finale Wednesday in Denver, as well.... See More ... See Less
Timberwolves' Jerryd Bayless: Out vs. Raptors
Bayless (ankle) will not play Tuesday against Toronto, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports.
The veteran will miss a second straight game, so expect Tyus Jones to see the bulk of the minutes at point guard, with Jared Terrell potentially in line for a larger role off the bench.... See More ... See Less
Timberwolves' Gorgui Dieng: Starting Tuesday
Dieng will start Tuesday's contest against the Raptors, Danny Cunningham of 1500 ESPN Twin Cities reports.
Dieng will make his first start of the year with Karl-Anthony Towns (knee) out. Dieng has seen 20-plus minutes on 10 occasions, averaging 9.9 points, 5.5 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.4 blocks and 1.4 steals in those contests.... See More ... See Less
Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Out Tuesday
Towns (knee) is out Tuesday against the Raptors, Jace Frederick of St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Towns is dealing with right knee inflammation, and with the Wolves playing inconsequential basketball, he won't risk further injury. Towns will travel with the team for Wednesday's season finale in Denver, but it's unclear if he'll be available.... See More ... See Less
