MINNEAPOLIS The Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday re-assigned rookie guard Malcolm Lee to the Sioux Falls Skyforce of the NBA Development League. Lee is expected to play Thursday as Sioux Falls plays host to Bakersfield.
Lee appeared in three games for the Skyforce in his first stint with Sioux Falls, averaging 9.7 points, 2.7 rebounds, 6.0 assists and 25.3 minutes.

Per NBA rules, a first- or second-year player can be assigned to the team's D-League affiliate a maximum of three times in a season.
