Robert Covington, Jeff Teague, and Derrick Rose to Miss Remainder of Season

The Wolves provided an injury update today. The Wolves provided an injury update today on Robert Covington, Jeff Teague, and Derrick Rose, announcing that all three of them are expected to miss the remainder of the season.

Let’s go through it quickly: Robert Covington was progressing from his bone bruise suffered at the New Year, but has had an unspecified set-back. Covington is obviously a vital player for the Wolves—a true three-and-D guy that...

Injuries have hurt Wolves, but awful defense has hurt just as much

Welcome to the Wednesday edition of The Cooler, where the truth cannot be controversial. Let's get to it: *The impact of injuries on this Timberwolves' season is undeniable. Robert Covington hasn't played since late December, a stretch now of 34 games missed. The Wolves went 12-10 when Covington was in the lineup after he had been acquired from the 76ers. They are 15-19 since he last played. Injuries to several point guards at once derailed any momentum the Wolves had a couple months back. Now a bunch of nagging injuries — combined with, a skeptic might add, a philosophy that won't rush...

The Golden Breakdown: How the Warriors screened the Timberwolves to death

After a tough loss against the Spurs, the Warriors recovered against the Timberwolves by going back to a basic staple of their offense, coupled with Steph Curry and Klay Thompson recovering their shooting strokes. In the Warriors’ 117-107 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves, the story of the night would certainly be their 39 assists on 44 made field goals. Another story certain to dominate the newsfeeds would be Stephen Curry’s 36 points on 12-of-21 shooting (57.1 percent), with an 8-of-14 shooting clip from three-point range (57.1 percent). But a more nuanced and perhaps...
