Injury Reports Heat - Timberwolves

The Timberwolves continue their four-game road trip. The Celtics defeated them 121-109 on Friday. Minnesota had won three straight games, including a 116-106 victory over the Mavericks, but had since dropped two of three.

Jordan McLaughlin, Taurean Prince, and Kyle Anderson are all out due to injuries.

Jordan McLaughlin will miss his ninth consecutive game due to a calf strain in his left leg. His next opportunity to play will be against the Pelicans on Wednesday.

The Miami Heat are attempting to avoid a third consecutive loss. The Bulls defeated them at home 113-110 on Monday, and the Pacers defeated them at home on Friday. Miami had won four straight games prior to those losses.

The Heat’s injured players included Jimmy Butler, Bam Adebayo, Gabe Vincent, Caleb Martin, Dewayne Dedmon, and Udonis Haslem.

Butler sprained his ankle on Friday against the Pacers, and it’s unclear whether he’ll be able to play through it against the Timberwolves.

If he is unable to play, Victor Oladipo, Haywood Highsmith, and Duncan Robinson will almost certainly see more playing time.
