Now, this is not an indication that the Wolves will indeed be shutting him down for whatever is left of their season, but since they won't be making the playoffs, it would be best if KAT is given some time to rest rather than let him play.
- The Minnesota Timberwolves announced Thursday that Robert Covington, Derrick Rose and Jeff Teague are all expected to miss the rest of the regular season with various injuries. Team officials said an MRI showed a chip fracture and loose body in his elbow.
Now ranked 10th in the Western Conference, the Wolves (32-39) have struggled in their absence, losing four straight games to the Denver Nuggets, Utah Jazz, Houston Rockets and Golden State Warriors.
For Rose, this injury has to be a huge disappointment.
Teague, 30, has also missed the past four games due to inflammation in his left foot. He averaged 13.3 points and 5.5 rebounds this season, split between Philadelphia and Minnesota, who acquired him as part of the Jimmy Butler trade. On Tuesday, Teague received an injection created to treat chronic inflammation.
Covington, under contract until mid-2022, has been out for 34 games with a right knee bone bruise. He was preparing to rejoin the team, but faced a setback and will need more treatment before he can return.
"The team and Rose are now exploring further treatment options and he is expected to miss the remainder of the season", the Timberwolves said.

Instead, the Flex streaming box is more like a traditional cable box without the cable snaking into the back. Flex seems aimed at deepening relationships with existing Comcast customers rather than acquiring new ones.
