April 15 update: Prince is officially listed as questionable for Game 1 against the Grizzlies Saturday with a knee injury. He missed the team’s play-in game victory over the Clippers.
April 12 update: The Timberwolves will be without backup forward Taurean Prince against the Clippers. He is dealing with a knee injury. After initially being deemed questionable, Prince ruled out. With the forward out, look for Anthony Edwards and Jaden McDaniels to take most of the minutes at the position.
The Minnesota Timberwolves were a team that started to pull it together in the second half of the season and as a result, they’ve earned themselves a postseason spot as one of the Western Conference play-in tournament participants. Like all of the other teams in the postseason field, injuries are a major factor to take into the consideration for this group.
The Wolves are heading into the postseason with a relatively healthy lineup and will have their core players on the court and ready to go for the tournament. Guard Patrick Beverley has been dealing with some soreness in his right ankle and entered Saturday’s home matchup against the Bulls with a questionable designation. Also questionable was point guard D’Angelo Russell with a non-COVID illness but both players should be good to go for the tournament.
Karl-Anthony Towns did miss Saturday’s game, but that was just a case of him getting some much-needed rest before the start of the postseason.
