Karl-Anthony Towns hit 9-of-15 shots for 22 points and 15 rebounds in Monday's Game 4 loss to the Rockets, putting the Wolves down 3-1 in their best-of-seven series.
KAT hasn't been spectacular in this series, but at least came through with some points and boards tonight. He didn't have a steal, block or a 3-pointer tonight and the Wolves got blown out by a score of 50-20 in the third quarter, but this was a much better showing for Towns than Games 1 and 2, when he scored a grand total of 13 points. It appeared the Wolves had a chance to even the series up at 2-2, but all of those hopes and dreams died in the third quarter. Game 5 is Wednesday at Houston. Apr 23 - 10:27 PM

Tom Thibodeau said on Tuesday that Jimmy Butler (right knee) has been "moving along pretty well" in his rehab from meniscus surgery.

While Butler still isn't jumping, he has progressed to running on an anti-gravity treadmill, which is a small step in the right direction. He's currently about mid-way through Week-2 of his rough 4-6 week timetable, and if all goes well, he could potentially make it back to the court for Minnesota's home game against Memphis on March 26. Nemanja Bjelica will continue to hold down the fort in his absence, with Karl-Anthony Towns, Andrew Wiggins and Jeff Teague doing more on offense.

Jimmy Butler (knee) is doubtful to play Wednesday vs. Portland.

It looks like Butler will be spending his third straight game on the sidelines tonight, which will result in Nemanja Bjelica earning another start with Andrew Wiggins, Jeff Teague and Karl-Anthony Towns being asked to step it up on the offensive end. Wednesday will be the first game of a back-to-back set, so with no practice time in between Wednesday and Thursday's games, it wouldn't be surprising to see Butler miss both of these.

Gorgui Dieng stepped up with Karl-Anthony Towns in foul trouble on Wednesday, notching a season-high 19 points with six rebounds, five assists, four steals and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes.

When asked about his strong play vs. DeMarcus Cousins tonight, Dieng replied, "I'm not gonna let anyone bully me." The minutes, assists and steals were also season-highs, and this was the first time since Nov. 8 that Dieng has played more than 20 minutes, so take it with a grain of salt. Most owners can just watch him over the next few games, in case his role expands.

Tyus Jones will move into the starting lineup for Sunday's matchup with the Suns, with Jeff Teague (Achilles) unavailable.

Jones looked great in 30 minutes off the bench on Friday night sans Teague, putting up eight points, six rebounds, six assists, four steals, two triples and three turnovers, so he'll be a popular DFS play today in his first career start. Jimmy Butler, Andrew Wiggins, Taj Gibson and Karl-Anthony Towns will join Jones in the starting five today, and Butler should see some increased playmaking opportunities with Teague watching from the sidelines.

Gorgui Dieng (sprained right index finger) and Cole Aldrich (sprained left ankle) are questionable to play Monday vs. Utah.

Dieng sat out Saturday's game against the Suns, which resulted in Karl-Anthony Towns and Taj Gibson getting all the burn they could handle with Nemanja Bjelica seeing a slight uptick in minutes. It'll be more of the same if Dieng can't give it a go on Monday night, and we should get another update on his status following Monday morning's shootaround.

Gorgui Dieng logged 21 minutes on Wednesday, scoring eight points on 4-of-8 shooting with seven rebounds and two steals.

The Wolves' five-game win streak was snapped tonight, and Dieng didn't help his case for more playing time with a plus/minus rating of -19. The recent success of the Karl-Anthony Towns/Taj Gibson frontcourt is worrisome, and Dieng isn't a standard-league option unless injuries thin out Minnesota's frontcourt.

Taj Gibson made his Wolves' regular-season debut on Wednesday, scoring six points on 3-of-11 shooting with four rebounds, three assists and one steal in 27 minutes.

Tom Thibodeau said before the game that having Gibson extend his 3-point range is important, because it's become "an essential part of the game." Taj finished 0-of-2 from deep tonight, but it sounds like he'll be encouraged to fire away as the season continues. He's still just a low-end big man while Karl-Anthony Towns and Gorgui Dieng are healthy.

Jeff Teague has reportedly agreed to a three-year, $57 million deal with the Timberwolves.

The Wolves sent Ricky Rubio to the Jazz earlier in the day, in exchange for a protected pick, so they were clearly targeting a starting-caliber PG to pair with Jimmy Butler, Andrew Wiggins and Karl-Anthony Towns. Teague's usage rate could dip in such a loaded offense, but he's still likely to return mid-round fantasy value.

Jimmy Butler praised Tom Thibodeau for molding him into the "player I am today."

Hear that, Fred Hoiberg? Jokes aside, the Thibs-Jimmy connection has always been strong, and we expect that will continue now that the pair is reunited in Minnesota. Butler has also already embraced his new home, and he'll have no problem sliding alongside Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins as the Timberwolves present their own version of a big three.
