A casualty of the Timberwolves’ win over the Nuggets last night?
Jeff Teague, who hurt his knee in the scrum to recover a late jump ball.
Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN:
This opens the door for Tyus Jones, who has been quite effective off the bench. Jones’ low-usage style could even open more shots for Minnesota’s most-efficient starters, Karl-Anthony Towns and Jimmy Butler.
Tom Thibodeau gives his starters heavy minutes, as if the team isn’t very deep. But this is an injury the Timberwolves should handle relatively well.
