Wolves F Robbie Hummel scored 13 points with seven rebounds, three assists and one block Sunday's exhibition, playing 19 minutes in relief of Anthony Bennett (sore knee).
He made 6-of-9 FGs with one 3-pointer off the bench and might be lucky to match this line all season. Hummel will be a marginal part of the rotation but he picked up extra minutes due to Bennett's unexpected departure, combined with precautionary DNPs for Shabazz Muhammad (heel) and Chase Budinger.

Robbie Hummel re-signed with the Wolves on a one-year deal worth the minimum.

The Wolves didn't extend him to a qualifying offer last month, but he still received a guaranteed contract at a shade under $1 million. Hummel still hasn't been able to get his career off the ground since suffering two ACL tears at Purdue and he is unlikely to be in the rotation this season.

The Wolves did not extend a qualifying offer to Robbie Hummel, making him an unrestricted free agent.

He had a few games with minutes in the 30s while the Wolves were banged up last season, but wasn't really productive. Hummel shot just 37.9 percent from the field in his rookie season and may have a tough time catching on with another team.
Jun 30 - 1:23 PM

Robbie Hummel joined the Wolves' starting lineup on Tuesday and played a game-high 35 minutes, scoring nine points with one 3-pointer, seven rebounds, one steal and one turnover.

The 25-year-old filled in nicely with Chase Budinger (ankle) and Shabazz Muhammad (knee) unavailable, making 4-of-10 field goals in just his second start of the season. Both Budinger and Muhammad could miss the Wolves' final five games, so Hummel is worth a look as a cheap source of 3-pointers in roto leagues.
Apr 8 - 10:53 PM

Robbie Hummel stepped up against the Magic on Saturday with 12 points, six boards, two assists, one steal and one turnover in 33 minutes.

He started the second half in place of Chase Budinger (ankle) tonight. Hummel was sprung into action because Kevin Martin (foot) was also out and the Wolves were just running out of bodies. His upside isn't really high enough to be picked up in even 14- and 16-team leagues, but he could be a plug-and-play on Tuesday vs. the Spurs.
Apr 5 - 9:40 PM

Robbie Hummel played five minutes against the Blazers on Saturday and did not score.

He's only played in one game since Jan. 7 and will be on the active roster now that Kevin Martin (thumb) is out. Hummel still has no fantasy value in almost any league.
Feb 8 - 11:53 PM

Robbie Hummel scored a career-high 10 points against the Sixers on Wednesday with three boards, one steal and two 3-pointers in 12 minutes.

It was great to see from a Hummel after the tough road he's had in his career. He tore his ACL twice at Purdue and had to play overseas before this year. Hummel doesn't have much fantasy value and the eventual return of Chase Budinger (knee) would probably bump him from the rotation.

Robbie Hummel scored seven points and grabbed six rebounds in 22 minutes during Tuesday's loss to the Wizards.

The Purdue product played in Spain last season but has quickly emerged as a trusted part of Rick Adelman's tight rotation, averaging 21 minutes in the past four games. It sounds like he'll maintain the role until Chase Budinger (knee) is ready to return. "We’re just looking for [Hummel] to come in and give us some stability," said Adelman. "He really knows how to play."

Robbie Hummel played 28 minutes in the first start of his NBA career, shooting 4-of-6 from the field for 10 points with four boards, one assist and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes.

It must have been a great feeling for Hummel with all he's been through. He suffered two ACL tears in college and had to start his career overseas. Still, he's not likely to stick in the starting lineup once Kevin Martin comes back from his illness.

Updating a previous report, Robbie Hummel and A.J. Price will remain on the Wolves' active roster for the regular season.

We erroneously reported that Hummel and Price had been waived, but Rick Adelman has been pleased enough with both guys to keep them on Minnesota's 15-man roster. Hummel will provide depth at SF while Chase Budinger recovers from knee surgery, but he's not a substantial fantasy option.

Timberwolves waive F Robbie Hummel, G A.J. Price and F Chris Johnson.

Hummel played well but couldn't stick, while Johnson actually had a guaranteed salary. Letting him go and eating the money will allow the Wolves the flexibility of having two roster spots available.

Robbie Hummmel will start at small forward for the Wolves against the Sixers on Wednesday.

The Wolves still don't have their small forward spot figured out with Chase Budinger rehabbing from knee surgery. Hummel has played just 31 minutes this preseason, shooting 6-of-14 from the field with two 3-pointers. He has his work cut out for him to get consistent minutes during the season. It's worth noting that coach Rick Adelman said he'll play his starters less tonight, and more on Thursday.

The Wolves signed 2012 second-round pick forward Robbie Hummel on Thursday.

No word on the deal or if he'll make the final roster, but he will definitely be in training camp with the Wolves, and not playing in Europe any time soon.

If Robbie Hummel doesn't make the Timberwolves, Pallacanestro Cantù may try to sign him.

He didn't help himself on Thursday, shooting 2-of-7 from the field for six points with five boards, two assists and three turnovers in 26 minutes. Hummel has been fairly quiet for most of the summer league and it's looking unlikely he'll be able to make the team.

Robbie Hummel is still hoping to make the Timberwolves roster in October.

After playing well at Purdue, Hummel tore his ACL two times within eight months to cause him to slide to the second round of the 2012 NBA Draft. He played in Spain last season and is with the Wolves for summer league.
