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.

Aaron Brooks could assume Jones’ reserve role. Jamal Crawford and Butler could also handle more lead-guard responsibilities.

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.
