Thaddeus Young F MIN 1 Month1 Comment

Young will be out indefinitely after the tragic death of his mother, ESPN 1500's Darren Wolfson reports.

It's certainly a terrible situation in Young's personal life, and he will be given all the time he needs to grieve away from the team. Anthony Bennett and Gorgui Dieng figure to see extend run in Young's absence.

Young played his most minutes of the season Friday against the Magic, scoring 13 points (6-15 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 0-2 FT).

Young has now logged a combined 75 minutes in his past two games. Anthony Bennett played in less than a minute Friday while Young pulled down four rebounds and tacked on an assist and a steal. Young owners should feel optimistic about his playing time going forward with the Timberwolves.

Young suffered a neck strain in Saturday's game against Chicago in a collision with Jimmy Butler.

Young suffered a neck strain in Saturday's game against Chicago and is questionable to return, the Timberwolves' official site reports.

Young played 17 minutes before the injury, recording eight points on 4-of-9 shooting to go along with a rebound and two assists. After Saturday, he'll have three days available to rest before Minnesota's next game, Wednesday against the Nets.

Young put in 19 points (7-13 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 3-3 FT) with five rebounds and three steals in 34 minutes in the win over Detroit.

Young looks poised to vie with Kevin Martin for the Timberwolves' go-to scoring role. In two games, he is averaging 22.5 points and has hit better than 50 percent of his shots in both games.

Young scored 26 points with four rebounds and four assists and was 10-of-18 from the floor in Wednesday's loss at Memphis.

It looks like Young will be the primary scorer in the offense until one of Minnesota's promising younger players is able to step up. Young took the most shots on the team by a decent margin (Ricky Rubio had 12 shots and Shabazz Muhammad has 10), which may continue early in the season.

Young scored 12 points with five assists and was 6-of-15 from the field in Friday's preseason win over the 76ers.

Young started at power forward and has been impressive as he's averaging 12 points in two preseason games. It's not clear how the minutes will be distributed at the forward spots yet for Minnesota, but Young should start and be one of the primary options on offense.
