Timberwolves' Luka Garza: Flirts with 30-point game in win
Garza finished with 29 points (11-15 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 4-5 FT), eight rebounds and seven assists over 36 minutes during Wednesday's 139-131 win over Birmingham.
Garza hauled in a team-high rebound total and finished second in assists and scoring while ending up one point shy of the 30-point mark. Garza has averaged 29.2 points, 10.8 rebounds, 4.6 assists and 1.6 blocks over five games with Iowa.... See More ... See Less
Timberwolves' Luka Garza: Back to G League
Minnesota transferred Garza to the G League's Iowa Wolves on Tuesday.
Garza continues to bounce back and forth between the NBA club and the G League squad with Karl-Anthony Towns (calf) sidelined. Across 13 appearances with Iowa, the 24-year-old center is averaging 29.6 points, 9.9 rebounds and 1.5 blocks in 35.7 minutes per game.... See More ... See Less
Timberwolves' Luka Garza: Shines in reserve role
Garza had 14 points (6-7 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three rebounds, two assists and one steal across 18 minutes during Monday's 136-115 victory over Atlanta.
With Naz Reid (calf) sidelined, Garza played double-digit minutes for the first time in 10 games. The second-year center responded with an efficient 14 points. Garza has been productive when given a sizable role and is averaging 18.0 points per game when he sees the court for at least 15 minutes. Garza could be a streamer for points and field-goal percentage when Reid is out, but he won't produce in many other categories.... See More ... See Less
Timberwolves' Luka Garza: Top rebounder in double-double
Garza finished with 23 points (9-15 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 3-6 FT), 13 rebounds, four assists and two blocks over 39 minutes during Saturday's 123-115 loss to Rio Grande Valley.
Garza finished with team-high marks in rebounds and blocks while finishing second on the team in scoring Saturday. Garza has averaged 29.3 points, 11.5 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 2.0 blocks in four G League appearances.... See More ... See Less
Timberwolves' Luka Garza: Flirts with double-double in loss
Garza notched 29 points (13-22 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-4 FT), nine rebounds, three blocks and two assists in 38 minutes during Thursday's 128-117 loss to Rio Grande Valley.
Garza hauled in a team-high rebound total while finishing one board shy of a double-double and one point short of surpassing the 30-point mark. Garza has averaged 31.3 points, 11.0 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 2.0 blocks in three G League games this season.... See More ... See Less
Timberwolves' Luka Garza: Headed to G League
The Timberwolves transferred Garza to the Iowa Wolves of the G League on Wednesday.
Garza is one of Minnesota's two-way players, so he will likely continue to move between the two levels to keep sharp. However, he has only appeared in two of the Timberwolves' last eight games, so he should see more playing time in Iowa.... See More ... See Less
Timberwolves' Luka Garza: Erupts for career-high 25 points
Garza finished with 25 points (9-13 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 3-3 FT), three rebounds and three assists in 23 minutes in Wednesday's 143-118 win over the Jazz.
The 25 points marked a new career high for Garza, who had previously recorded 20 points exactly three times during his rookie season in 2021-22 with the Pistons. Garza is now averaging 22.0 points and 6.0 rebounds in 22 minutes over the Timberwolves' last two games, but the blowout nature of both contests and the absence of Rudy Gobert (groin) on Wednesday were major factors. Assuming Gobert is good to go Friday in Memphis and the Timberwolves are able to keep the game competitive, Garza will likely see his minutes drop off precipitously, if he's not cut out of the rotation entirely....

Timberwolves' Luka Garza: Shines in garbage time
Garza notched 19 points (6-12 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 7-8 FT), nine rebounds and two assists across 21 minutes during Tuesday's 146-112 loss to the Nuggets.
Garza was left out of the rotation two nights earlier in the Timberwolves' 128-98 win over the Nuggets, but he received the chance to play in Tuesday's rematch due to the blowout nature of the contest. With both teams resting their key rotation players for much of the fourth quarter, Garza received some extended burn and was able to put up quality numbers as a result. The second-year big man out of Iowa may get a temporary look as the Timberwolves' backup center if Naz Reid sees more time at power forward in the absence of Kyle Anderson (back), but Garza will likely find himself back out of the rotation as soon as Anderson is back in the fold....

Timberwolves' Luka Garza: Takes advantage of opportunity
Garza amassed 17 points (7-9 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), six rebounds and one assist in 10 minutes during Friday's 127-120 loss to the Magic.
Garza barely saw action Friday but made the most of his minutes, missing just two of his nine shots en route to posting a career-best scoring mark. He has amassed four games with double digits so far this season, and all four have come since Dec. 30. The rookie struggles with consistency and has found it hard to adjust to the league at times, but he seems to be trending in the right direction. He's averaging 7.0 points and 2.6 rebounds across 10.3 minutes per game in 11 games since the start of January.... See More ... See Less
Timberwolves' Luka Garza: Transferred to parent club
Minnesota transferred Garza to the NBA club from the G League's Iowa Wolves on Monday.
The Timberwolves elevated Garza, Matt Ryan, Josh Minott and Wendell Moore from the G League, and all four of them will be available for Monday's matchup against Sacramento. Across 17 NBA appearances, Garza is averaging 5.4 points and 1.8 rebounds in 7.9 minutes, but he may see an increased role against the Kings if Rudy Gobert (groin) is downgraded to out....

Garza did it all for Iowa in Sunday's win, leading the team in points, rebounds, assists and blocks while finishing two assists shy of a triple-double. Garza has averaged 32.5 points, 12.0 rebounds, 5.0 assists and 1.5 blocks over his last two G League games.... See More ... See Less

Timberwolves' Luka Garza: Ties season-high 16 points
Garza posted 16 points (4-9 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 5-6 FT) and four rebounds across 17 minutes during Wednesday's 122-118 loss to the Nuggets.
Rudy Gobert (groin) sat out Wednesday's loss, allowing Garza to see backup center minutes behind Naz Reid. Garza has played sparingly this season, but this is the second time he's reached his season-high 16 points. The former Iowa standout isn't an add in any fantasy leagues, as he's on a two-way deal and is essentially fighting for a job whenever he gets a chance to play.... See More ... See Less
Timberwolves' Luka Garza: Leads with 30-point outing
Garza finished with 31 points (12-19 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six rebounds, two assists and one block in 34 minutes during Monday's 143-132 loss to South Bay.

Timberwolves' Luka Garza: Back with parent club
The Timberwolves recalled Garza from the G League's Iowa Wolves on Wednesday.
Garza is expected to dress Wednesday in Detroit, taking on the Pistons squad that selected him in the second round of the 2021 NBA Draft. The 6-foot-10 center had appeared in three of the Timberwolves' previous four games before getting assigned to Iowa, but Garza may not be featured in the rotation Wednesday now that Naz Reid is healthy and ready to step in as the primary backup to Rudy Gobert....

Timberwolves' Luka Garza: Puts up season-high 16 points
Garza amassed 16 points (5-8 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 6-6 FT), three rebounds and one assist over 18 minutes during Friday's 123-114 loss to the Bucks.
Garza came from nowhere Friday, putting up easily his best line of the season. With Rudy Gobert a late scratch due to illness, Garza assumed the role of backup center, tallying more points than he has across all games played this season. Gobert is unlikely to be sidelined for too long, meaning this should be viewed as the epitome of a flash in the pan.... See More ... See Less
