  • Timberwolves' Robert Covington: Will play Wednesday

    Covington (knee) will play in Wednesday's game against the Kings.

    Covington seems to be dealing with some soreness in his knee that caused him to sit out of Saturday's game, however it's nothing serious as he will play for his second consecutive game.Barring any setbacks, he should see his usual role.

  • Timberwolves' Robert Covington: Probable Wednesday vs. Kings

    Covington (knee) is probable for Wednesday's contest against the Kings.

    Covington played 26 minutes in Monday's return from a one-game absence. While he'll likely play again Wednesday, he's apparently still dealing with some soreness, which could limit his workload once again.

  • Timberwolves' Jeff Teague: Focuses on facilitating in loss

    Teague mustered just three points (1-5 FG, 1-1 FT) but added 11 assists, two rebounds and one block across 28 minutes in the Timberwolves' 116-108 loss to the Warriors on Monday.

    Teague was almost a complete non-factor on the scoreboard for the second time in the last three games, but he kept busy by setting up his teammates for plenty of offensive success. The veteran point guard has double-digit assist tallies in that pair of contests, making up for the fact he's shot a combined 2-for-11 during those games. Teague will look to return to a more balanced line in a friendly matchup versus the Kings on Wednesday.

  • Timberwolves' Dario Saric: Strong effort off bench

    Saric totaled 13 points (6-9 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), eight rebounds and two assists across 31 minutes in the Timberwolves' 116-108 loss to the Warriors on Monday.

    Saric led the Timberwolves second unit in rebounding, and he checked in second in scoring to Derrick Rose. The third-year forward has hit double digits in the scoring column in two of five December games, but he appears set to remain in a bench role behind starter Taj Gibson for the time being. That slotting, which is affording Saric minutes in the high teens or low 20s on most nights, is naturally causing fluctuations in his production, but he remains a fairly steady source of points and rebounds relative to playing time.

  • Timberwolves' Andrew Wiggins: Strong all-around line in loss

    Wiggins registered 20 points (6-15 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 5-6 FT), five rebounds and one steal across 36 minutes in the Timberwolves' 116-108 loss to the Warriors on Monday.

    Wiggins served as an ideal complement to the offensive exploits of Karl-Anthony Towns, who paced the Timberwolves with 31 points on the night. The fifth-year wing now has three straight 20-point efforts, and he's shooting an impressive 48.0 percent, including 45.5 percent from distance, over his first five December contests.

  • Timberwolves' Robert Covington: Modest line in return

    Covington (knee) tallied seven points (2-7 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, one steal and one block across 26 minutes in the Timberwolves' 116-108 loss to the Warriors on Monday.

    Covington was able to suit up after a one-game absence, but he was much less of a factor than he'd been in recent games. The veteran wing's scoring total was his first single-digit tally in the last six games, and only his third overall since playing his first game for the Timberwolves back on Nov. 14. Given that he's been a mostly dependable source of production across the stat sheet, Covington's clunker could safely be labeled an outlier that he'll look to bounce back from against the Kings on Wednesday.

  • Timberwolves' Derrick Rose: Leads bench in scoring

    Rose supplied 21 points (8-18 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT), four assists, three rebounds, two steals and two blocks across 34 minutes in the Timberwolves' 116-108 loss to the Warriors on Monday.

    Rose led the second unit in scoring while checking in behind only Karl-Anthony Towns in that category for the T-Wolves on the night. The veteran point guard continues to enjoy a robust role on the second unit, and he's now hit double digits in the scoring column in 14 of his last 15 games. Factoring in Monday's production, Rose sports his best scoring average (18.4 points per game) since the 2011-12 season, while his 48.8 percent shooting (including a career-high 47.6 percent from three-point range) is just a tenth of a point shy of equaling his high-water mark in that category.

  • Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Another full stat line in loss

    Towns provided 31 points (11-15 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 8-12 FT), 11 rebounds, four assists and a block across 34 minutes in the Timberwolves' 116-108 loss to the Warriors on Monday.

    Towns scoring and rebounding totals both led the Timberwolves on the night, and the performance served as the big man's fourth straight double-double. The 23-year-old has also hit the 30-point mark in two of his last three games, as he's significantly picked up his production since the trade of Jimmy Butler to the 76ers on Nov. 10. Since that point, Towns has only been under 20 points in four of 14 games, and he's generated seven double-doubles over that span as well.

  • Timberwolves' Robert Covington: Will play vs. Golden State

    Covington (knee) has been cleared to play Monday against the Warriors, Chris Hine of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    Covington was listed as probable on Minnesota's injury report leading up to Monday's tip, so this doesn't come as a big surprise. After missing one game due to knee soreness, he should resume his role within the starting five.

  • Timberwolves' Robert Covington: Probable for Monday

    Covington (knee) is expected to take the court Monday against the Warriors.

    Covington didn't play Saturday against Portland, but he should be good to go for his team's upcoming matchup. He figures to resume his role within the starting five, bumping Josh Okogie back to a bench role.

  • Timberwolves' Jerryd Bayless: Hopeful to play in 1-to-2 weeks

    Bayless (knee) said Saturday that he's hopeful to return to game action in 1-to-2 weeks, Chris Hine of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. "It hasn't gone as quickly as I would've hoped, but we're getting to the stage now that I'm getting closer," Bayless said, regarding his recovery from a sprained left knee.

    Bayless is still awaiting his 2018-19 debut and has played just 42 games over parts of the last three seasons after he was previously hampered by wrist issues. The 76ers dealt Bayless to Minnesota in November as a throw-in for the trade that sent Jimmy Butler to Philadelphia. Once cleared to play, Bayless is unlikely to be featured in coach Tom Thibodeau's rotation.

  • Timberwolves' Josh Okogie: Plays 26 minutes Saturday

    Okogie ended with eight points (3-5 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), two rebounds, one assist, one steal, and one block in 26 minutes during Saturday's 113-105 loss to Portland.

    Okogie played 26 minutes off the Timberwolves bench Saturday, picking up some additional time in lieu of the injured Robert Covington (knee). The production was far from spectacular but he certainly brings the energy when he is on the floor and the hope is that coach Tom Thibodeau can eventually find a way to get him on the floor with some regularity. Until then, Okogie has value in deep leagues only and even that is limited.

  • Timberwolves' Andrew Wiggins: Steady night Saturday

    Wiggins totaled 20 points (8-18 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 4-6 FT), six rebounds, two assists, one steal, and one block in 33 minutes during Saturday's 113-105 loss to Portland.

    Wiggins put up his second straight 20 point effort Saturday, leading the Timberwolves in scoring in what was a tough road loss. The Trail Blazers went on a 15-2 run to end the game to break the hearts of the Wolves players who had fought back from a 10 point deficit. Wiggins continues to adjust to life without Jimmy Butler but has been chipping in some supporting stats of late.
