  • Timberwolves' Rudy Gobert: Tagged as questionable

    Gobert (ankle) is questionable for Tuesday's game against San Antonio.

    Gobert is at risk of missing his second consecutive game due to a left ankle sprain, but he practiced Monday and appears to be trending in the right direction. Nonetheless, his status will need to be monitored in advance of Tuesday's showdown against his French compatriot Victor Wembanyama.

  • Timberwolves' Rudy Gobert: Participates in practice

    Coach Chris Finch said Gobert (ankle) practiced Monday and is "feeling good," Dane Moore of 'The Dane Moore NBA Podcast' reports.

    Gobert sprained his ankle during Friday's loss to the Bucks and didn't play during Saturday's win over the Nets. His return to practice is a good sign, but it sounds like he'll still wind up on Minnesota's initial injury report ahead of Tuesday's matchup versus the Spurs, which should drop Monday afternoon.

  • Timberwolves' Rudy Gobert: Out against Nets

    Gobert (ankle) will not play in Saturday's game against the Nets, Jon Krawczynski of The Athletic reports.

    Gobert suffered an ankle injury Friday against the Bucks, but he was carrying a questionable tag prior to this update, which suggests that he's likely day-to-day. Fortunately for Minnesota, they have two days off after Saturday's contest. Karl-Anthony Towns is likely to get more minutes at center Saturday, with guys like Naz Reid, Kyle Anderson and Jaden McDaniels potentially soaking up more minutes as well.

  • Timberwolves' Rudy Gobert: Questionable versus Nets

    Gobert (ankle) has drawn a questionable designation ahead of Saturday's game against the Nets.

    Gobert sprained his ankle during Friday's 112-107 loss to the Bucks. The big man finished the contest with 12 points (6-8 FG, 0-1 FT), 19 rebounds and two blocks, and he played through the injury. With a quick turnaround for Saturday's tilt, the star big man's status will presumably depend on how he is feeling closer to tipoff. If he ultimately has to sit out, Naz Reid would likely be the prime beneficiary, while Karl-Anthony Towns could also see some extra run at center.

  • Timberwolves' Rudy Gobert: Sprains ankle in loss

    Gobert said after Friday's 112-107 loss to the Bucks that he sprained his ankle during the contest, but he expects to be fine, Jace Frederick of St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. He played 38 minutes in the loss, finishing with 12 points (6-8 FG, 0-1 FT), 19 rebounds, two blocks and one assist.

    If Gobert was limited at all by the sprained ankle, it wasn't apparent in his minutes or production, but he should still be viewed as day-to-day heading into Saturday's game against the Nets. Gobert has played in all but one of the Timberwolves' 56 games this season.

  • Timberwolves' Rudy Gobert: Stellar numbers continue in win

    Gobert closed Tuesday's 121-109 win over Portland with 16 points (7-10 FG, 2-4 FT), 15 rebounds, one assist and one block over 37 minutes.

    Gobert is on a six-game double-double streak and has hit those milestones against tough competition. He had less trouble against Deandre Ayton and the Portland frontcourt, although Ayton had 16 rebounds to Gobert's 15 boards. Minnesota will match up with Portland again Thursday, and Gobert should enjoy a similar stat line.

  • Timberwolves' Rudy Gobert: Records double-double in win

    Gobert had 17 points (6-10 FG, 5-5 FT), 10 rebounds and four blocks in 33 minutes during Monday's 121-100 win over the Clippers.

    Gobert extended his double-double streak to five games, and his four swatted balls lifted him to eighth place in the category with a seasonal average of 2.1 blocks per game. In his second season with the Timberwolves, Gobert is averaging 13.8 points and 12.5 rebounds over 52 games.

  • Timberwolves' Rudy Gobert: Posts double-double in loss

    Gobert racked up 12 points (3-6 FG, 6-10 FT), 16 rebounds, one assist, one block and one steal across 44 minutes during Tuesday's 129-123 overtime loss to Chicago.

    Gobert knows most of his value will come on the defensive end and the glass, as he holds a secondary role in Minnesota's offensive scheme behind Karl-Anthony Towns and Anthony Edwards, but he has been a steady double-double producer of late. The Frenchman has posted seven double-doubles over his last 10 games, a span in which he's averaged 14.8 points, 13.4 rebounds and 1.7 blocks per contest.

  • Timberwolves' Rudy Gobert: Available, starting Sunday

    Gobert (ankle) is starting Sunday's game against the Rockets.

    Gobert was questionable ahead of Sunday's matchup, but he'll be able to take the floor once again despite his ankle injury. He was also cleared to suit up Friday against Orlando despite a questionable tag, and he totaled 22 points, 16 rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 39 minutes.

  • Timberwolves' Rudy Gobert: Strong from line in double-double

    Gobert produced 22 points (6-7 FG, 10-11 FT), 16 rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 39 minutes during Friday's 108-106 loss to the Magic.

    Gobert led all players in Friday's contest in rebounds and free throws made while ending with a team-high-tying point total and as the lone Timberwolves player with a double-double in a losing effort. Gobert, who also recorded a team-high-tying pair of blocks, has tallied at least 20 points and 15 rebounds in three games this season. He has now posted a double-double in eight of his last 10 contests.

  • Timberwolves' Rudy Gobert: Iffy for Sunday

    Gobert is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Rockets with a sprained left ankle.

    Gobert lands a questionable tag for a second straight contest with a sprained ankle. He played through the injury Friday and logged a double-double across 39 minutes. If he can't suit up Sunday, Naz Reid and Luka Garza would likely handle larger workloads.

  • Timberwolves' Rudy Gobert: Will play Friday

    Gobert (ankle) will play in Friday's game against Orlando, Dane Moore of 'The Dane Moore NBA Podcast' reports.

    Gobert has been very durable this season, missing a total of one game. There's no word of any restrictions, but Minnesota will likely watch his ankle closely. In his most recent outing against Dallas on Wednesday, Gobert had 17 points, six rebounds and two blocks in 28 minutes.

  • Timberwolves' Rudy Gobert: Dealing with ankle sprain

    Gobert is questionable for Friday's game against the Magic due to a left ankle sprain.

    Gobert has missed just one game this season, but his availability for Friday is in jeopardy after being a late addition to the injury report. If the starting center is sidelined, Naz Reid would presumably be the primary beneficiary, even if he doesn't move into the starting lineup. In Gobert's lone absence this season, Kyle Anderson replaced Gobert in the starting lineup, moving Karl-Anthony Towns to center, but Reid posted 19 points, 10 rebounds and three assists in 37 minutes off the bench during a 127-120 overtime loss to Boston.
