  • Timberwolves' Luka Garza: Back to G League

  • Timberwolves' A.J. Lawson: Transferred to G League

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Limited numbers in return

    McDaniels (illness) started at power forward and finished with eight points (3-4 FG, 2-3 3Pt), one rebound, one steal and one block across 18 minutes in Saturday's 135-128 loss to the Thunder.

    Back in action after a three-game absence due to the illness, McDaniels reclaimed a spot in the starting five. After typically being deployed as the Wolverines' top small forward, McDaniels moved up to power forward in place of Karl-Anthony Towns (calf), who is expected to be sidelined for at least the next month. Though he didn't see a notable spike in production in his first game sans Towns, McDaniels' low minutes Saturday were mostly the result of foul trouble. He should see his playing time pick up while Towns is out of the lineup.

  • Timberwolves' Jordan McLaughlin: Delivers solid all-around night

    McLaughlin (calf) finished with eight points (2-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT), five rebounds, four assists, two steals and one block over 24 minutes during Saturday's 135-128 loss to Oklahoma City.

    McLaughlin returned to the floor for the first time since Nov. 21 after moving past a calf injury. He looked a little rusty shooting the ball, but he made an impact in other areas, as he outperformed his season averages in rebounds (1.8), assists (3.8) and steals (0.9). McLaughlin didn't appear to be on any sort of minute restriction against the Thunder and should be one of the first guards off the bench behind D'Angelo Russell and Anthony Edwards moving forward.

  • Timberwolves' Jaylen Nowell: Remains key source of scoring

    Nowell racked up 21 points (6-13 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 7-8 FT), three rebounds and two assists across 23 minutes during Saturday's 135-128 loss to the Thunder.

    Nowell had another efficient night shooting the basketball, and he finished with 20-plus points for the third straight contest. It's becoming increasingly clear that he'll continue to see chances off the bench behind Anthony Edwards, as Nowell is averaging 25.8 minutes over his last four matchups after logging 16.5 minutes per contest through his first 19 appearances of the 2022-23 campaign.

  • Timberwolves' Naz Reid: Monster day on boards

    Reid supplied 13 points (6-12 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 18 rebounds, four blocks and three assists in 30 minutes during Saturday's game against the Thunder.

    With Karl-Anthony Towns (calf) sidelined and with Rudy Gobert getting ejected in the first half, the Timberwolves had to turn to Reid to hold down the fort at center. While logging his most minutes of the season, Reid delivered an excellent stat line highlighted by the excellent rebounding and blocks production. The Timberwolves haven't shown much of an inclination to play Reid and Gobert alongside one another, so on nights when Gobert is able to avoid foul trouble, Reid could find it difficult to clear 20 minutes even while Towns remains out for at least the next month.

  • Timberwolves' Kyle Anderson: Collects season-high four blocks

    Anderson amassed six points (2-3 FG, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, five assists, four blocks and two steals across 31 minutes during Saturday's 135-128 loss to Oklahoma City.

    Anderson stuffed the stat sheet across the board, with arguably his biggest contributions coming on the defensive end of the court. The UCLA product has scored in double figures in only one of his last nine matchups, but he's been able to make an impact elsewhere by averaging 5.2 rebounds, 3.1 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.3 blocks to go along with 6.8 points over this stretch.

  • Timberwolves' Anthony Edwards: Notches season-high six steals

    Edwards amassed 26 points (10-22 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 4-6 FT), three rebounds, four assists and six steals over 37 minutes during Saturday's 135-128 loss to the Thunder.

    Edwards was a menace on the defensive end in this one, and he's now recorded 11 total steals over his last two games. He broke the 20-point threshold in scoring for the fifth consecutive contest, but turnovers (five) were once again an issue for the young guard. Nevertheless, Edwards should continue to serve as his team's best scoring option moving forward with Karl-Anthony Towns (calf) out at least until the beginning of January.

  • Timberwolves' D'Angelo Russell: Gets ejected against OKC

    Russell has been ejected from Saturday's game against the Thunder after receiving two technical fouls, Joe Mussatto of The Oklahoman reports.

    Russell was the second Timberwolves player that got ejected during Saturday's disappointing performance, as Rudy Gobert was also tossed in the first half after tripping Kenrich Williams. The point guard was given his second technical foul late in the fourth quarter when the game was out of Minnesota's reach and ended with 27 points (10-16 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 5-5 FT), six assists, three rebounds and a steal across 36 minutes.

  • Timberwolves' Rudy Gobert: Ejected from Saturday's game

    Gobert was assessed a flagrant-2 foul and ejected with 9:22 left in the second quarter of Saturday's game against the Thunder, Joe Mussatto of The Oklahoman reports.

    Gobert was handed the ejection after officials deemed that he intentionally tripped the Thunder's Kenrich Williams. With Gobert done for the day, Naz Reid will likely serve as the Timberwolves' primary option at center. Gobert will end Saturday' with six points (3-3 FG, 0-2 FT) and four rebounds across nine minutes.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Returns to starting role

    McDaniels (illness) is included in the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Thunder.

    McDaniels returned to practice Friday following a three-game absence due to illness, and as expected, he's back in the lineup with Kyle Anderson heading to the bench. McDaniels is averaging a career-best 11.4 points per game this season across 19 appearances, all of them as a starter.

  • Timberwolves' Kyle Anderson: Not starting Saturday

    Anderson is not in the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Thunder.

    Anderson got a spot start Wednesday and finished with 10 points, six rebounds and five assists across 39 minutes against the Grizzlies, but he heads back to the bench here. He's averaging 5.4 points and 4.0 rebounds per game across 14 appearances off the bench in 2022-23.

  • Timberwolves' Bryn Forbes: Out Saturday

    Forbes is out Saturday against the Thunder due to gastroenteritis.

    Forbes plays a depth role for Minnesota, so his absence likely won't affect the rotation much. His next chance to see the floor arrives Wednesday against the Pacers.

  • Timberwolves' Jordan McLaughlin: Active Saturday

    McLaughlin (calf) will play in Saturday's tilt against the Thunder, Dane Moore of BringMeTheNews.com reports.

    McLaughlin has missed five straight contests due to a calf strain but will make his return to the hardwood Saturday. His return will likely knock Austin Rivers out of the rotation for Minnesota.

  • Timberwolves' Taurean Prince: Remains out

    Prince (shoulder) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Thunder.

    As expected, Prince will miss a fifth straight game due to a dislocated shoulder. The veteran forward's next chance to suit up will arrive Wednesday versus the Pacers.

  • Timberwolves' Jordan McLaughlin: Listed as questionable

    McLaughlin (calf) is questionable for Saturday's matchup against the Thunder.

    McLaughlin returned to practice Friday but is still considered questionable for Saturday. If the backup point guard remains sidelined for a fifth straight game, he'd get an extended rest, with Minnesota not playing again until next Wednesday.

  • Timberwolves' Jaden McDaniels: Not listed on injury report

    McDaniels isn't listed on the injury report for Saturday's matchup against the Thunder.

    McDaniels returned to practice Friday and appears set to play Saturday following a three-game absence due to an illness. The third-year forward has started all 19 of his appearances this season and is averaging 11.4 points, 3.5 rebounds, 1.4 assists, 1.4 blocks and 1.1 steals in 29.9 minutes per game.

  • Timberwolves' A.J. Lawson: Rejoins Timberwolves

    Minnesota transferred Lawson from the G League's Iowa Wolves to the NBA squad on Friday.

    Lawson has appeared in only one game for Minnesota this season. The undrafted rookie out of South Carolina will likely continue to bounce back and forth between the parent club and their G League affiliate, as he is on a two-way contract.

  • Timberwolves' Luka Garza: Headed back to Minnesota

    Minnesota transferred Garza from the G League's Iowa Wolves to the NBA club on Friday.

    Garza has appeared in only one game for the Timberwolves this season, but he's dominated at the G League level. The talented big man had 33 points in his most recent game for Iowa and will likely bounce back and forth between the two teams for the foreseeable future.
