MINNEAPOLIS Alexey Shved, who's been out since he sprained his ankle Thursday night against the Clippers, went through practice on Tuesday, but he's still listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against Brooklyn.
"Alexey did do some stuff on the court to try to see how he feels," coach Terry Porter said of the rookie guard. "I don't think he'...
The Minnesota Timberwolves' injury woes continue to pile up: Alexey Shved is out Monday and questionable for Wednesday with an ankle injury.
T-Wolves reporter Mark Remme reports that Shved isn't making the trip to Atlanta. He's day-to-day with no timetable.
Dante Cunningham, who was too sick to play Saturday, is making the trip.
The Wolves are already without...
When I learned that Chris Johnson and Mickael Gelabale had been signed to 10-day contracts by the Minnesota Timberwolves on Saturday morning, I suspected that they’d likely see action that same evening against the Houston Rockets.

Minnesota Timberwolves guard J.J. Barea was fined $5,000 on Monday for his second violation this season of the NBA's anti-flopping rules.

The rule was put in place this season to stop players from excessive flopping on fouls. Brooklyn's Reggie...
MINNEAPOLIS Alexey Shved and Nikola Pekovic will both be out for Wednesday's game against Brooklyn at the Target Center. Both were injured in the second half of last Thursday's game against the Clippers, Shved with a sprained left ankle and Pekovic with a right quad contusion. That gives the Timberwolves 10 healthy players against the Nets.
The day after Pekovic's injury...
MINNEAPOLIS Bill Bayno has ice taped to his back. Shawn Respert, sweating, jogging, in his warmups, is looking more like a player than anything else. And Terry Porter, in his suit, in front of the cameras, is running the show.
This is the state of the Timberwolves these days. There are too few players to practice and the coaches are too young not to jump in, even if their 40- and...
As per usual here on That NBA Lottery Pick, we love monster slam dunks and the below one from Minnesota's Derrick Williams is a nice one.During today's Hawks/Timberwolves affair, Williams got out on the fast break and put Atlanta's John Jenkins on a poster:
The Atlanta Hawks and Minnesota Timberwolves are having trouble putting enough healthy bodies on the court.
The Timberwolves ended an 11-game slide to the Hawks earlier this season, but it's anybody's guess as to what to expect in Monday's rematch in Atlanta.
There were eight players out for Minnesota (17-20) as it surprisingly snapped a five-game slide with Saturday...
