The T-Wolves are losing forward Jaden McDaniels with an ankle injury.

McDaniels suffered a Grade one ankle sprain early in Minnesota’s victory over the Knicks on Monday night. His estimated recovery time is between two and three weeks. Based on that timeline he would miss eight to ten games.

Head Coach Chris Finch told media he expects 25-year-old guard Nickeil Alexander-Walker to pick up the majority of McDaniels' minutes during his absence.
