Lower leg injury/questionable to return. Hope it’s a bruise or mild sprain hence the questionable


Groin I hear. I hate that one. They heal usually really slow. 1 to 5 weeks usually, depending.

So is anyone else going to say “The Timberwolves!” when asked at dinner tomorrow “What are you thankful for?”

Patrick Beverly is the teams spirit animal. While he rests, the young pups will cover for him until he returns. Hopefully sooner rather than later.

I watched this with my dad so I was watching from the DVR. I missed 40 seconds in the fourth including our 2nd to last timeout. Overall I loved the second half, and was so proud of Beasley and Ant for keeping us alive in the first half. This is the Beasley I have been waiting for all season. Ant was a little to hero mode at the end but I give him an enormous amount of credit for the win. V8 is worth his weight in gold. His rebounding is beyond essential. Dlo wasn’t great, but he wasn’t as bad as he had been.

We beat the heat, crushed the General, got to .500, and got a five game win streak. We did all of this with KAT on the bench most of the first half. We are for real.

Don't forget, Haliburton is better.

I watched yet a bunch of this TimberTroll Late Pre Season.
I like what I've seen so far, whatever Ls or Ws.

Team is apparently building something resembling to an own personality at court, whoever the 5 guys are out there.

Dload has grown a lot on game running and defense.

KAT is putting some toughness under the rim (it was about time).

The Rapper is just being great tho I'm not seeing a special evolution in his game... not on defensive reading and decision-making.
He's overall more consistent and confident at least.

#IAlwaysTrustedVandarra

Beasley looks like he finally adjusted being a free bro again.

Other guys at the roster are doing good and helping to win.

Special shout out to El Motivao Beverly (let's all pray for his groin).

If someone put the essential ingredient to cook this reckless, scrappy and aggressive Wolves character has been him.
Probably one of the most impactful energy guy ever.

Kinda mad-dog-Tolliver.

They are nuts, lol
Ant has better stats across the board than Gilgeus-Alexander but I bet they all will say SGA has more value and is a bigger star.

This was one of the few games I thought team showed moxie that’s been missing. Edwards, Beasley, and Vando laid it all out. So many things and plays I could highlight but in short a great win.

You know what pisses me off. The refs spotted the heat 6 points. 3 for Vando on an and 1 charge when he was stock still and no where near the restricted area. Then 3 from Ant on the poster dunk that every little boy will want on their wall. That Ant one was stolen and by god I want it back. Take the 3 away from them and they end under 100, give us our 3 and instead of winning by 12 we win by 18. Vando’s poor nuts and Ant poor dunk are something to be sore about, but not as sore as the General, for losing in front of the Wolves faithful.

Great win despite KAT getting into foul trouble early...this was probably Wolves best rebounding performance of the season so far..Heat only had 4 offensive rebounds. Ant was great and good to see Beasley finally having a big game.

I hope so too. In the meantime the solution is Jaylen Nowell.

My god I wish I could just give everyone an and 1 on every post since we won. My favorite win in years. The heart and grit to fight through the first half without KAT, without the whistles, my god I love this new toughness and I have so much faith in FINCH.

For all of this you need to be happy. Happy the Wolves won. They won and didn’t crawl under a rock to lose because of these wrong doings. Wolves need to adopt a more “us against the world” attitude. They need to win by 18 which becomes 12 because of the cards stacked against them.

I was doing something of a bit. I wanted to mention V8’s poor nuts, Ant’s insane dunk, and rub in that the home fans got to watch us beat the General once again. I am very very happy with this win. The icing on the cake would have been holding them under 100, but they are a top 5 offense and we held them to 101. We turned them over 21 times to our 16 and we moved past them to fourth overall by defensive rating while knocking them to 5th. I am so very happy :) :) :)
