Garnett is averaging 18.6 minutes when he plays for the T-Wolves. He'll sit out some back-to-back games, but it looks like he'll average about the same minutes as when in Brooklyn but make take more shots (13.5 shots per 36 minutes in Minnesota vs. 11.6 shots per game in Brooklyn).

Garnett (rest) was ejected from Saturday's game against the Grizzlies, but not before recording six points (3-4 FG, 0-1 3Pt), three rebounds, three steals, and two assists in 15 minutes.

Frustration overflowed after committing three fouls in the span of 1:55 early in the third quarter, forcing Garnett to slam the ball on the court and pick up his second technical foul of the contest. Expect him to take the court Monday versus the Clippers, though, as the Timberwolves have only two games on the schedule in the next six days.

Garnett (rest) will not play in Friday's game against the Bulls, the Chicago Tribune reports.

Garnett will rest Friday, so it seems reasonable to assume that he'll likely be available when the Timberwolves face the Grizzlies on Saturday, considering that he usually only plays one of the two back-to-back games.

Garnett (rest) is considered questionable for Friday's game against the Bulls, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports.

Garnett was present at morning shootaround but he told reporters he's unsure if he'll take the court Friday night. "We'll see, we'll see. If not tonight, definitely tomorrow," Garnett said. "The thing is here is the long haul and the bigger picture here and trying to be productive." Garnett played 19 minutes Wednesday against the Wizards, finishing with five points, eight rebounds and two blocks. If he's held out of action Friday, Gorgui Dieng will likely return to the starting lineup.

Minnesota head coach Flip Saunders said he expects Garnett to play anywhere from 15 to 21 minutes per game and remains open, but not committed, to playing him in back-to-back games, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

The T-Wolves have back-to-back games on Friday and Saturday, so we'll get a better feel for how he'll be used then. However, it looks like Saunders is less concerned about giving him set rest than coaches were in Brooklyn.

Garnett scored five points (2-7 FG, 1-2 FT) with eight rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 19 minutes during Wednesday's win over the Wizards.

It was an emotional, and successful, homecoming for Garnett, whose primary job in Minnesota will be to mentor young phenom Andrew Wiggins rather than supply the kind of stats he did in his heyday.

Garnett will start in his Timberwolves debut Wednesday against Washington, Andy Greder of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

While Flip Saunders hasn't released a full starting lineup, he confirmed Tuesday that Garnett will start, which likely pushes Adreian Payne back to the bench. On most nights with the Nets, Garnett played between 15 and 20 minutes, and he'll likely step into a similar role with Minnesota, regardless of whether he remains in the starting lineup past Wednesday's game. The veteran's offensive production has slowed considerably, but he remains a productive per-minute rebounder.

Garnett won't make his debut for Minnesota until Wednesday, head coach Flip Saunders told Fox Sports North. The T-Wolves also want to sign him to a two-year extension, the Associated Press reports.Garnett, who was traded to Minnesota from Brooklyn for Thaddeus Young, will miss two games as a result. It's not clear if he'll start or come off the bench or how many minutes he'll get, but giving him two games off may signal the T-Wolves are prepared to give him rest to keep him healthy.

Garnett waived his no-trade clause and was dealt to the Timberwolves on Thursday in exchange for Thaddeus Young, David Aldridge of TNT reports.From purely a basketball perspective, the trade probably doesn't help Minnesota, but it brings back the best player in franchise history. Garnett spent 12 seasons with the Timberwolves, making 10 All-Star teams and averaging 22.7 points, 13.3 rebounds, 5.0 assists and 1.6 blocks over a five-year peak. At this point in his career, the 38-year-old is a shell of his former self, but he's started 42 games this season and provided dependable rebounding numbers (6.8 per game) in just over 20 minutes per game. Garnett will likely come off the bench in Minnesota and could serve in more of a mentor's role with the team well out of playoff contention.
