  • Timberwolves' Jaylen Clark: Still out indefinitely

    Clark (Achilles) is out for Wednesday's game against the Mavericks and remains out indefinitely.

    Clark ruptured his right Achilles tendon in March and underwent surgery but was still selected by Minnesota in the second round of the 2023 NBA Draft. The Timberwolves expected the rookie to miss at least the first half of the season, but after 47 games, there still hasn't been a substantial update. Until Clark returns to basketball activities, he can be considered month-to-month moving forward.

  • Timberwolves' Jaylen Clark: Remains out indefinitely

    Clark (Achilles) is out for Monday's game against the Knicks.

    Clark ruptured his right Achilles tendon in March and underwent surgery but was still selected by Minnesota in the second round of the 2023 NBA Draft. The Timberwolves expected the rookie to miss at least the first half of the season, and after 31 games and the calendar flipping to 2024, there still hasn't been a substantial update. Until Clark returns to basketball activities, he can be considered month-to-month moving forward.

  • Timberwolves' Jaylen Clark: Likely to miss start of season

    The Timberwolves are preparing for Clark (Achilles) to miss at least the first half of the 2023-24 season, Jace Frederick of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Clark suffered a right Achilles' tendon tear in March and later underwent surgery, but the major injury didn't deter the Timberwolves from selecting him in the second round in the 2023 NBA Draft and subsequently signing him to a two-way deal. Because he'll likely be sidelined for the entire 2023 portion of the Timberwolves' schedule and quite possibly beyond that, Clark is unlikely to exceed the two-way player limit of 50 active games with the NBA team during his rookie season. With that in mind, Clark will presumably remain on a two-way deal throughout the upcoming season, but he could be upgraded to a standard NBA deal ahead of the 2024-25 season if he shows well in the G League and/or with the Timberwolves in the second half of the upcoming campaign.

  • Timberwolves' Jaylen Clark: Inks two-way deal

    The Timberwolves signed Clark (Achilles) to a two-way contract Friday, Michael Scotto of USA Today reports.

    Clark was a second-round selection for Minnesota in the 2023 NBA Draft. While it's unclear when he'll be able to take the court due to tearing his Achilles at the end of last season at UCLA, he is set to split time between the G League and NBA when he returns.

  • Timberwolves' Jaylen Clark: Drafted by Wolves

    Clark (Achilles) was selected by the Timberwolves with the No. 53 pick in the 2023 NBA Draft.

    Clark's impressive junior season with UCLA -- in which he was named Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year and to the All-Pac-12 Second Team -- was cut short by an Achilles tear at the end of the regular season. So, he likely won't be ready to play for Minnesota until the calendar flips to 2024. Still, once healthy, Clark profiles as a fantastic defender with both physicality and quickness. Offensively, he's more of a flow player who cuts and can make passes. His three-pointer is a work in progress.
