Timberwolves' Nemanja Bjelica: Still limited, going through non-contact drills
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bjelica (foot) has remained limited to non-contact work in the weeks leading up to training camp, Jon Krawczynski of the Associated Press reports.

Bjelica underwent surgery back in March to address a break in his left foot, and whiles the Wolves are encouraged by his progress, he'll still be on the shelf when camp opens next week. Coach Tom Thibodeau told reporters at the team's media day Friday that Bjelica is "getting close," so the expectation is that he'll be ready when the regular season begins in mid-October. Last season, Bjelica averaged 6.2 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.2 assists per game while shooting just over 42 percent from the field.

Timberwolves' Aaron Brooks: Signs deal with Timberwolves
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brooks agreed to a contract with the Timberwolves on Thursday.

The veteran spent last season with the Pacers, posting a modest 5.0 points, 1.9 assists and 1.1 rebounds across 13.8 minutes per game. His workload doesn't project to change in a positive direction, as the Wolves are certainly set with their starting point guard Jeff Teague. That said, he could compete for the reserve role with Tyus Jones and has a good enough of an outside shot to play shooting guard in small-ball lineups.

Timberwolves' Shabazz Muhammad: Signs with Timberwolves for veteran minimum
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muhammad agreed to a one-year, $1.6 million deal with the Timberwolves on Tuesday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

Though Muhammad was an unrestricted free agent, he seemingly gained little traction with other teams and will continue his tenure in Minnesota. Last season, he posted 9.9 points and 2.8 rebounds across 19.4 minutes per game while shooting 48.2 percent from the field and 33.6 percent from deep. With Andrew Wiggins and Jimmy Butler likely taking up huge workloads on the wing, Muhammad's path to significant playing time is cloudy and it would be surprising if he garnered a larger workload than in 2016-17. He'll also have to compete for reserve minutes at shooting guard with Jamal Crawford -- one of the league's top scoring sixth men. That said, he figures to be the top backup at the small forward slot, especially if coach Tom Thibodeau continues to deploy Nemanja Bjelica at power forward.
