Timberwolves' Justin Patton: Listed as out Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Patton has been ruled out for Game 2 against the Rockets on Wednesday with a sore left foot, Jon Krawczynski of The Athletic reports.

Patton missed a bunch of time recently with an illness and while he appears to be over that ailment, he's now dealing with a sore left foot. That will keep him out of a second straight playoff game, though even when he's cleared, Patton isn't a part of the Timberwolves' regular rotation.

Timberwolves' Jamal Crawford: Provides spark off bench in Game 1 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crawford contributed 15 points (4-11 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 4-4 FT), two rebounds and two assists across 26 minutes during Minnesota's 104-101 loss to the Rockets during Game 1 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series.

Crawford's contributions off the bench were particularly valued on a night when Karl-Anthony Towns and Jimmy Butler mustered just 21 points between them. The veteran guard was a valuable source of offense on the second unit throughout the regular season, and given his savvy and considerable postseason experience, he figures to serve as a valued presence throughout the entirety of the Timberwolves' postseason run.

Timberwolves' Jimmy Butler: Sluggish from the field in Game 1 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butler produced 13 points (4-11 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 3-3 FT), five rebounds, three assists and two steals across 36 minutes during Minnesota's 104-101 loss to the Rockets during Game 1 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series.

Butler's numbers across the board were relatively modest, and his misfire on a would-be game-tying three-pointer with 1.5 seconds remaining essentially sealed the Timberwolves' fate. The seven-year veteran did prove the fitness of his previously injured knee over the final three games of the regular season, during which he averaged 21.3 points, 3.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 2.7 steals across 29.0 minutes over three games. Therefore, it wouldn't be surprising to see Butler bounce back with better numbers across the board during Wednesday's Game 2.

Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Struggles offensively in Game 1 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Towns managed eight points (3-9 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-4 FT), 12 rebounds, two assists and one block across 40 minutes during Minnesota's 104-101 loss to the Rockets during Game 1 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series.

Towns was unusually limited on offense in Game 1 after averaging 23.8 points in four regular-season games against the Rockets. The All-Star big man did turn in a typically strong effort on the boards, with Sunday's contest marking his fifth straight with double-digit rebounds dating back to the tail end of the regular season. Given that his nine shot attempts were his fewest since March 2, Towns is likely primed for a boost in usage in Game 2 on Wednesday night.

Timberwolves' Jeff Teague: Fills out stat sheet in Game 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Teague delivered 15 points (4-9 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 6-7 FT), nine rebounds, eight assists, one steal and one block across 29 minutes during Minnesota's 104-101 loss to the Rockets in Game 1 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series.

Teague was highly productive across the stat sheet, helping make up for some of the scoring shortfall brought about by a drop in production on the part of both Karl-Anthony Towns and Jimmy Butler. The veteran point guard often took the reins of the offense when Butler was sidelined for an extended period with a knee injury during the latter portion of the season, and he surprisingly displayed a similar level of usage Sunday despite the starting five being at full health. Teague will look to continue producing at a similar clip in Game 2 on Wednesday.
