Timberwolves' Anthony Edwards: Will not return
Edwards will not return to Friday's game against the Kings due to personal reasons,
No further details have been given regarding Edwards exiting. The star wing tallied 11 points (2-11 FG, 1-3 3PT, 6-6 FT), two rebounds, two assists and one block across 19 minutes before leaving the game. His status for Sunday's matchup with the Clippers is unknown at this time.... See More ... See Less
Timberwolves' Anthony Edwards: Good to go Friday
Edwards (ankle) is good to go for Friday's game against the Kings.
Edwards tweaked his ankle back on Tuesday and has been dealing with soreness ever since, but he obviously seemed fine Wednesday versus Memphis when he poured in 34 points in 40 minutes.... See More ... See Less
Timberwolves' Kyle Anderson: Out Friday
Anderson (knee) will not play in Friday's matchup with the Kings.
No surprise here, as Anderson was considered doubtful for the contest. In his absence, Naz Reid and Nickeil Alexander-Walker are candidates to absorb some of Anderson's minutes off the bench. His next chance to play will come Sunday versus the Clippers.... See More ... See Less
Timberwolves' Kyle Anderson: Doubtful for Friday
Anderson (knee) is doubtful for Friday's game against the Kings.
Anderson sat out Wednesday's game after spraining his knee during Tuesday's win over the Spurs, and it looks like he'll be missing his second straight game Friday evening. Naz Reid and Nickeil Alexander-Walker will be asked to pick up some of the slack while SloMo is out.... See More ... See Less
Timberwolves' Anthony Edwards: Questionable for Friday
Edwards (ankle) is questionable for Friday's game against the Kings.
Edwards continues to deal with left ankle soreness, but he was able to suit up Wednesday against the Grizzlies despite the issue. He tallied 34 points, four assists, two rebounds and a block in 40 minutes against Memphis, and it wouldn't be surprising to see him handle plenty of playing time if he's cleared for action Friday....

Timberwolves' Monte Morris: Expanded role following trade
Morris tallied five points (2-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 0-1 FT), five assists and four rebounds over 21 minutes in the Timberwolves' 110-101 victory against the Grizzlies on Wednesday.
After appearing in only six games with the Pistons this season due to a quad injury, Morris has found an opportunity to contribute after the Feb. 7 trade, averaging 17.3 minutes per game. Despite a lackluster night from the field, the 28-year-old was still able to contribute with five assists, his most in a game this season. With Jordan McLaughlin averaging a career-low 8.8 minutes per game, expect Morris to continue providing solid depth behind Mike Conley.... See More ... See Less
Timberwolves' Naz Reid: Impresses off bench in win
Reid finished Wednesday's 110-101 win over the Grizzlies with 19 points (6-11 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 3-3 FT), six rebounds, two assists and two blocks over 25 minutes.
Reid has been one of the best bench performers this season, and although that role limits his upside a bit, he continues to find ways to make an impact on offense as the primary backup of both Rudy Gobert and Karl-Anthony Towns. Reid has scored in double digits in eight of his last 10 appearances, averaging 12.6 points and shooting 37.5 percent from three-point range in that span.... See More ... See Less
Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Posts double-double in win
Towns had 13 points (5-13 FG, 3-7 3Pt), 11 rebounds, two assists, one block and three steals in 37 minutes during Wednesday's 110-101 win over the Grizzlies.
Towns didn't have his best showing Wednesday, though to be fair, he wasn't heavily involved on offense, which is quickly becoming a negative trend -- his 13 field goal attempts represent the third time over his last five games in which he didn't attempt 15 shots. Towns' place as the Timberwolves' second-best offensive weapon behind Anthony Edwards is not in danger, but he is also experiencing some regression compared to his previous seasons. Even if his numbers are not the same ones from the previous two campaigns, he remains an elite big man who must be rostered in all formats.... See More ... See Less
Timberwolves' Anthony Edwards: Scores game-high 34 points
Edwards provided 34 points (11-21 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 11-11 FT), two rebounds, four assists and one block over 40 minutes during Wednesday's 110-101 win over the Grizzlies.
Edwards was impressive Wednesday and led the Timberwolves' second-half comeback with an electric, dunk-heavy offensive performance. He led all players in scoring while reaching the 30-point mark for the fourth time over his last six appearances. Edwards is firmly entrenched as the Timberwolves' primary offensive weapon, and the numbers back him up. Over Minnesota's last 10 games, the All-Star guard is averaging 31.9 points, 6.2 rebounds and 4.9 assists per game.... See More ... See Less
Timberwolves' Rudy Gobert: Will play Wednesday
Gobert (ankle) is good to go for Wednesday's game versus Memphis.
Gobert will power through an ankle issue and should be slated for his usual minutes, which diminishes the appeal of Naz Reid as a potential streaming option. Gobert managers can go ahead and get him active.... See More ... See Less
Timberwolves' Anthony Edwards: Will play Wednesday
Edwards (ankle) will play Wednesday against the Grizzlies.
Edwards is dealing with some soreness in his left ankle, but that won't stop him from taking the court Wednesday evening. Managers can feel confident getting him active for an attractive matchup with Memphis.... See More ... See Less
Timberwolves' Rudy Gobert: Iffy for Wednesday
Gobert is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game versus the Grizzlies due to a left ankle sprain.
After being upgraded to available Tuesday, a left ankle sprain has Gobert in danger of missing the second half of Minnesota's back-to-back Wednesday. If the 31-year-old center is ruled out, Naz Reid will likely receive increased playing time in his absence.... See More ... See Less
Timberwolves' Anthony Edwards: Iffy against Memphis
Edwards is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game versus the Grizzlies due to left ankle soreness.
Edwards tweaked his ankle in Tuesday's contest and is now questionable for the second half of Minnesota's back-to-back Wednesday. If the star guard is ruled out, Nickeil Alexander-Walker will likely receive increased playing time in his absence.... See More ... See Less
Timberwolves' Kyle Anderson: Out Wednesday with knee sprain
The Timberwolves have ruled Anderson out for Wednesday's game against the Grizzlies due to a left knee sprain.
Anderson will miss the second leg of the Timberwolves' back-to-back set after he exited early in Tuesday's 114-105 win over the Spurs due to what the team described as left hamstring tightness. The Timberwolves have now provided an updated diagnosis of Anderson's injury, and he can be viewed as day-to-day until the team provides more official word on the extent of the health concern. With Rudy Gobert (ankle) being listed as questionable for Wednesday, Anderson's absence could test Minnesota's depth in the frontcourt.... See More ... See Less
Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Not listed on injury report
Towns (personal) isn't listed on Minnesota's injury report ahead of Wednesday's game against the Grizzlies.
Towns was a late scratch ahead of Tuesday's win over the Spurs due to a personal matter, but he looks set to return to action Wednesday. However, Anthony Edwards (ankle) and Rudy Gobert (ankle) are questionable, so Minnesota may still be down a starter or two. In February (nine games), Towns has averaged 21.7 points, 7.0 rebounds, 2.7 three-pointers, 1.9 assists and 1.2 blocks in 30.9 minutes per game.... See More ... See Less
