Timberwolves' Jimmy Butler: X-rays negative
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

X-rays on Butler's knee came back negative following Friday's game versus the Rockets, but he will still undergo an MRI on Saturday to determine the full extent of his injury, Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reports

Butler went down with a non-contact knee injury late in the third quarter of Friday's game and had to be helped to the locker room. While the initial results of his X-rays are cause for optimism, the MRI set for Saturday will shed light on the severity of the injury. Jamal Crawford and Shabazz Muhammad would presumably be in line for a siginificant bump in minutes should Butler ultimately be sidelined going forward, while Tyus Jones could see some extended run in the backcourt as well. Expect an update once the team provides more clarity on the situation.

Timberwolves' Justin Patton: Assigned to G-League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Patton was re-assigned to the G-League on Thursday.

Patton was recalled to the Timberwolves for the length of the All-Star break, but as expected, will now head back down to the team's affiliate. Considering he's out of the Timberwolves' rotation entirely, another lengthy stint in the G-League should allow Patton ample playing time and developmental opportunities.

Timberwolves' Jimmy Butler: Sits out All-Star Game with apparent illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butler didn't play in Sunday's All-Star Game due to an illness and was eager to rest up for the second half, Chris Chavez of Sports Illustrated reports.

While Butler was a full participant in warmups and an elaborate pregame ceremony, the versatile wing didn't log a minute in the game itself, with the telecast noting that he was feeling under the weather. Butler's absence may have been a minor disappointment as Team Stephen ultimately fell 148-145, but all indications are that he'll be ready when the Timberwolves begin their post-break schedule Friday in Houston.

Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Double-doubles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Towns had 17 points (7-11 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), and 10 rebounds in 18 minutes during Sunday's 148-145 loss to Team LeBron in the All-Star game.

Towns looked very comfortable in his first All-Star game, finishing with 17 points and 10 rebounds. He has been a double-double machine this season and was able to carry over that form in just 18 minutes of court-time. The Wolves are currently in a battle with the Spurs for the third and fourth positions in the West and Towns is going to be a big part of the push. He has had many games this season where he appears secondary on offense, something the Wolves can hopefully figure out as the regular season draws to its conclusion.
