Top Timberwolves News

  • Timberwolves' Dario Saric: Coming off bench

    Saric will come off the bench Wednesday against the Pelicans, Jace Frederick of the Pioneer Press reports.

    The Wolves will start Robert Covington on the wing in his first game with the team, but they'll apparently stick with Taj Tibson at power forward for the time being. For now, Saric will function as the first forward off the bench.

  • Timberwolves' Derrick Rose: Out Wednesday

    Rose (knee) is out Wednesday against the Pelicans, Kent Youngblood of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    Rose was previously listed as questionable. However, leading up to tipoff, he determined he's in too much discomfort to take the floor. While Rose is sidelined, Tyus Jones could see a bump in minutes.

  • Timberwolves' Jeff Teague: Available vs. Pelicans

    Teague (knee) is available to play in Wednesday's game against the Pelicans, Kent Youngblood of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    The news of Teague's availability comes alongside news that Derrick Rose (knee) will not play in Wednesday's game after being a late addition to the injury report. In Teague's return to the court Monday, he played in 34 minutes and appeared to be perfectly healthy, and he may be in line for even more minutes Wednesday with Rose sidelined. Tyus Jones will serve as the primary backup at point guard.

  • Timberwolves' Andrew Wiggins: Cleared to play Wednesday

    Wiggins will play Wednesday against the Pelicans, Jon Krawczynski of The Athletic reports.

    Wiggins was initially ruled a game-time call due to a bruised knee, but after going through a pregame workout he's been cleared to play. Expect Wiggins to start on the wing alongside new acquisition Robert Covington.

  • Timberwolves' Robert Covington: Starting Wednesday

    Covington will start Wednesday's game against the Pelicans, Kent Youngblood of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    It was previously known that Covington would play, but it was unclear if he would start. In entering the starting five for Minnesota, Covington should see a similar workload to the 33.8 minutes he garnered in Philadelphia.

  • Timberwolves' Jerryd Bayless: Out Wednesday

    Bayless (knee) is out Wednesday against the Pelicans.

    Bayless has yet to play this season while recovering from a sprained knee. His next chance to take the floor arrives Friday against the Trail Blazers.

  • Timberwolves' Derrick Rose: Questionable with knee soreness

    Rose is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Pelicans due to left knee soreness.

    Rose obviously has a dark history with knee injuries, but he is still a surprise addition to the injury report with Wednesday's game just under three hours from tip-off. Rose will likely end up being a game-time decision against the Pelicans, and if he is ruled out, Tyus Jones and rookie Josh Okogie could be in line for a heavy dose of minutes, especially if either Jeff Teague (knee) or Andrew Wiggins (quad) are ruled out.

  • Timberwolves' Dario Saric: Will make Wolves debut Wednesday

    Saric will play Wednesday against the Pelicans, Malika Andrews of ESPN reports.

    Both Saric and Robert Covington will make their Timberwolves debut Wednesday night, but coach Tom Thibodeau did not specify whether either player would be in the starting lineup. Saric may face some competition from veteran, and Thibs favorite, Taj Gibson, but the expectation is he'll eventually take over the starting power forward spot.

  • Timberwolves' Robert Covington: Will play Wednesday

    Covington will play Wednesday against the Pelicans, Malika Andrews of ESPN reports.

    Both Covington and Dario Saric went through shootaround Wednesday morning and will be available to debut for their new team, though Tom Thibodeau did not specify whether either player would be in the starting lineup. Both players are expected to start at some point, with Covington being the obvious fill-in for the departed Jimmy Butler.

  • Timberwolves' Dario Saric: Could make Wolves debut Wednesday

    The Timberwolves are hopeful that Saric will be able to make his debut Wednesday against the Pelicans, Jace Frederick of the Pioneer Press reports.

    Neither Saric nor Robert Covington were permitted to take part in Tuesday's practice, per league rules, but the expectation is the trade will officially be completed prior to Wednesday's game. Assuming that's the case, both players should be available, though it's unclear how up-to-speed they'll be on coach Tom Thibodeau's system. Saric will likely step in as the starter at power forward, though he could face some competition from veteran incumbent, Taj Gibson.

  • Timberwolves' Robert Covington: Hopeful to debut Wednesday

    The Timberwolves are hopeful that Covington will be able to make his debut Wednesday against the Pelicans, Jace Frederick of the Pioneer Press reports.

    The Timberwolves and Sixers are expected to officially complete the trade Tuesday afternoon, but both Covington and Dario Saric were held out of practice, as they weren't yet cleared by the league. Regardless, the hope is that they'll be able to go through shootaround Wednesday morning and be in the lineup for the home matchup with New Orleans. Covington figures to step into the starting spot vacated by Jimmy Butler.

  • Timberwolves' Jeff Teague: Questionable for Wednesday

    Teague (knee) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Pelicans.

    Teague returned to action Monday after missing seven games with a knee injury, notching 24 points, 11 assists, three steals and one rebound across 34 minutes. While Teague looked healthy in his return, he's apparently dealing with some lingering soreness, which is understandable given his nearly two-week layoff. Look for his status for Wednesday's game to clear up following morning shootaround. If the Timberwolves opt to play it safe and keep Teague out, look for Derrick Rose and Tyus Jones to benefit from some increased run.

  • Timberwolves' Andrew Wiggins: Game-time decision vs. Pelicans

    Wiggins is questionable for Wednesday's game against New Orleans due to a left knee contusion.

    Wiggins logged 37 minutes in Monday's win over Brooklyn, but it appears he's picked up yet another minor injury. Confirmation on his availability should come closer to tipoff, with Derrick Rose or Josh Okogie likely to draw a spot start if Wiggins is held out.

  • Timberwolves' Taj Gibson: Could face competition for minutes

    Gibson said he would be OK coming off the bench if Dario Saric moves into the starting lineup, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    Gibson started and played 33 minutes in Monday's win over Brooklyn and scored 17 points with eight rebounds. However, neither new acquisitions Saric and Robert Covington played after coming over from the 76ers. Gibson could be at risk of losing playing time with two new players added to the front court.

  • Timberwolves' Andrew Wiggins: Plays 37 minutes Monday

    Wiggins put up 13 points (5-12 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six rebounds, three assists, one steal, and one block in 37 minutes during Monday's 120-113 victory over the Nets.

    Wiggins, who has been in and out of the rotation of late, played 37 minutes Monday, scoring 13 points on 5-of-12 shooting. A lingering quad injury has cost him some time so far this season. The Timberwolves are about to add Robert Covington and Dario Saric to their lineup which is going to mean a reshuffle to the lineup. Wiggins is likely safe as the starter but there will be some depth on the bench moving forward, something the Wolves have lacked in the past.
