Zach LaVine    G  Timberwolves

 

 

Zach LaVine said he's making solid progress in his recovery from his torn left ACL. "Everything is going well. I have progress right now, doing everything I can do to get better—shooting, strengthening, lifting, all that good stuff," said LaVine. "The doctor said my knee is as healthy as it can get at this point right now." LaVine is still only able to run on an AlterG Anti-Gravity treadmill, but according to his teammate Ricky Rubio (who has also dealt with an ACL tear), LaVine is ahead of schedule in his recovery. That being said, LaVine remains without an official timetable to return, and there are no guarantees he'll be ready for the start of the 2017-18 season.

Ricky Rubio    G  Timberwolves

 

 

ESPN is reporting that the Knicks would like to re-engage the Minnesota Timberwolves in trade talks involving Ricky Rubio this offseason. The Knicks and Wolves were purportedly close to swapping Derrick Rose for Rubio at the trade deadline back in February, before that deal dissolved. Over the second half of last season, Rubio played some of the best basketball of his career. In 24 games after the All-Star break, Rubio averaged 16.0 points, 10.5 assists and 4.6 rebounds. Rose ended up tearing his meniscus. Also, Rose is now a free agent, so it is unknown what the Knicks could offer that would entice the Wolves to part with Rubio.

Nemanja Bjelica    F  Timberwolves

 

 

Nemanja Bjelica (foot) isn't expected to play for Serbia in EuroBasket this September. He had season-ending surgery to repair a fractured navicular bone in his left foot in mid-March and currently doesn't have a timetable to return. He can only shoot while seated, so he doesn't exactly sound close to a return. Wolves coach Tom Thibodeau rode his starters into the ground for most of the season, but Bjelica eventually carved out a decent role after the All-Star break and averaged 8.4 points, 6.4 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 0.7 blocks, 0.6 steals and 1.0 triples in that span. The 29-year-old forward will likely be the first big off the bench for the Wolves again in 2017-18 once he's healthy.

Brandon Roy    G/F  Timberwolves

 

 

Brandon Roy reportedly caught a stray bullet to his leg while shielding children from gunfire outside his grandmother's house in Southern California, but he's expected to make a full recovery. Roy has been out of the league since 2013, but the former All-Star recently made headlines by coaching a three-win high school team to a perfect season and a No. 1 ranking in the nation. Roy was an innocent bystander in what is being described as a "gang-related shooting," but luckily catastrophe was avoided, and he likely saved some children's lives in his heroic act.

Shabazz Muhammad    G/F  Timberwolves

 

 

The Nets will reportedly pursue Shabazz Muhammad as a restricted free agent this offseason. Both Minnesota and Brooklyn will have a ton of cap space this offseason, but given Muhammad's skill set, the Timberwolves may let him walk if the Nets come in with a big time offer. Muhammad would provide the Nets with a much-needed scoring punch, so he could potentially have some value in Brooklyn.

Ricky Rubio    G  Timberwolves

 

 

Ricky Rubio (rest) did not play on Wednesday against the Rockets. The Wolves wanted to get a look at their young point guards, so they gave Rubio his first game off since Jan. 22. Considering how well he played, the Rubio trade rumors should subside this summer, but anything is possible after this team was a disappointment.
