Timberwolves get major Patrick Beverley boost amid losing streak

Timberwolves Patrick Beverley KAT

The Timberwolves have had a rough stretch of games recently. They have been without key players in multiple games, including Patrick Beverley. The point guard has missed Minnesota’s last six games due to an adductor strain in his left thigh.

However, according to Minnesota Timberwolves reporter Dane Moore, he is ready to play. Moore tweeted late Wednesday morning that “Patrick will make his return tonight for the Timberwolves against the Utah Jazz,” according to his source.

This is a huge boost for the Minnesota starting five. The team began their current three-game losing streak in their loss to the Washington Wizards. Not only did they lose, but Timberwolves star center Karl-Anthony Towns suffered a back injury that continues to affect him. He missed the team’s loss to the Nets on December 3, but was able to suit up for their third straight loss to the Hawks. KAT is now a game time decision for tonight’s matchup.

The team is also struggling with a hole in their starting shooting guard position. D’angelo Russell missed their most recent game against Atlanta. He is recovering from an ankle injury, but is expected to be back in time for Friday’s game against the Cavs.

Beverley’s presence on the court will hopefully provide the momentum that Minnesota needs to get out of this rut. The 11-13 Timberwolves will attempt to break their losing streak tonight when they host the 16-7 Utah Jazz.
