Top Jordan McLaughlin News

  • Timberwolves' Jordan McLaughlin: Back in action

    McLaughlin is not listed on the injury report ahead of Monday's game against the Clippers.

    McLaughlin missed Thursday's game due to a right hip pointer, but he will return to the lineup after missing just one game. McLaughlin could see less run going forward with the recent addition of veteran guard Monte Morris.

  • Timberwolves' Jordan McLaughlin: Questionable with hip pointer

    McLaughlin is questionable for Thursday's game at Milwaukee due to a right hip pointer.

    The Timberwolves traded for Monte Morris on Thursday, but he's not expected to be available quite yet. Thus, if McLaughlin is sidelined, expect Nickeil Alexander-Walker to see additional backup point guard minutes.

  • Timberwolves' Jordan McLaughlin: Out against Bucks

    McLaughlin (hip) will not play in Thursday's game against the Bucks.

    McLaughlin will be considered day-to-day going forward. Monte Morris (trade pending) will not debut Thursday, but he's expected to pick up the backup point guard minutes going forward at the expense of McLaughlin.

  • Timberwolves' Jordan McLaughlin: Vital scoring off bench

    McLaughlin finished with 10 points (4-4 FG, 2-2 3Pt) and one assist across 14 minutes during Monday's 107-101 win over the Thunder.

    McLaughlin hit double-digit scoring for the first time through 26 appearances this season, stepping up due to Mike Conley (hamstring) being inactive Monday. Nickeil Alexander-Walker has been the starter when Conley is sidelined, but McLaughlin brings value as a true point guard with trust and familiarity in the offense.

  • Timberwolves' Jordan McLaughlin: Quality contributions in loss

    McLaughlin provided eight points (3-7 FG, 2-3 3Pt), two rebounds, three assists and two steals in 13 minutes during Saturday's 102-97 loss to the Thunder. He also had no turnovers.

    McLaughlin entered Saturday's contest having totaled zero points, four rebounds and zero assists in 15 minutes across Minnesota's past two games. McLaughlin adds a synergistic presence in the Timberwolves' backup point guard role, but the 27-year-old hasn't settled into a rhythm this season due to knee troubles. Exceeding 20 minutes on any given night is unlikely, barring injuries in the backcourt.

  • Timberwolves' Jordan McLaughlin: Remains in rotation Friday

    McLaughlin produced three points (1-1 FG, 1-1 3Pt), three rebounds, three assists and two steals across 13 minutes during Friday's 122-95 win over Houston.

    McLaughlin played at least 12 minutes for the third straight game, a welcome sign when compared to his season thus far. Although he can be a viable target in deeper formats when afforded meaningful minutes, his role is too unpredictable at this point. Managers should keep an eye on him, just in case he supplants Nickeil Alexander-Walker. If that does happen, McLaughlin could have some value as an assists and steals specialist.

  • Timberwolves' Jordan McLaughlin: Good to go

    McLaughlin (knee) is good to go for Thursday's game against Dallas.

    McLaughlin returned from a lengthy absence Monday against the Pelicans, scoring three points with one assist and one steal in eight minutes. He's on the outskirts of the rotation right now, and Minnesota is getting healthier with Anthony Edwards and Jaden McDaniels returning to action Thursday.

  • Timberwolves' Jordan McLaughlin: Questionable for Thursday

    McLaughlin (knee) is questionable for Thursday's game against Dallas.

    McLaughlin returned to action Monday against the Pelicans and tallied three points, an assist and a steal in eight minutes. He's still dealing with his knee injury ahead of Thursday's matchup, but his status shouldn't significantly impact Minnesota's rotation.

  • Timberwolves' Jordan McLaughlin: Cleared to play

    McLaughlin (knee) is active for Monday's game against New Orleans.

    McLaughlin was initially added to the injury report Sunday due to a knee injury, but he's since been given the green light to play if needed. He's yet to see any playing time since going down with a right MCL sprain Nov. 6, and it looks like the Timberwolves are content to ease him back into action, especially given his limited role in the team's rotation.

  • Timberwolves' Jordan McLaughlin: Iffy for Monday

    McLaughlin (knee) is questionable for Monday's game against the Pelicans.

    McLaughlin missed 14 straight games due to a right MCL sprain but was cleared to suit up Friday versus Memphis. However, he didn't see any playing time, even with Anthony Edwards (hip) leaving the contest early. Even when fully healthy, McLaughlin isn't a regular part of the rotation, so his potential absence shouldn't impact fantasy.

  • Timberwolves' Jordan McLaughlin: Active Friday

    McLaughlin (knee) is available for Friday's game against Memphis.

    McLaughlin is cleared to play in his first game since Nov. 6. However, it's unclear how much playing time he'll get, as Minnesota is close to full strength. McLaughlin is averaging just 3.8 minutes across five appearances this season.

  • Timberwolves' Jordan McLaughlin: Iffy against Memphis

    McLaughlin (knee) is listed as questionable for Friday's game versus the Grizzlies.

    McLaughlin hasn't played since Nov. 6 due to a right knee sprain. However, his upgraded status and return to 5-on-5 action in practice is a good sign that the 27-year-old point guard could suit up soon.

  • Timberwolves' Jordan McLaughlin: Cleared for 5-on-5

    Minnesota announced Tuesday that McLaughlin (knee) has been cleared to participate in 5-on-5 drills.

    McLaughlin returned to practice Monday as a limited participant and has been given the green light for full participation moving forward. He'll likely remain sidelined for Wednesday's matchup against the Spurs, but his return to game action appears imminent. However, even when he's able to suit up again, McLaughlin isn't guaranteed playing time. He's averaging just 3.8 minutes across five appearances this season.

  • Timberwolves' Jordan McLaughlin: Limited at practice

    McLaughlin participated in practice Monday for the first time since his knee injury, although he didn't take contact, Dane Moore of 'The Dane Moore NBA Podcast' reports.

    McLaughlin has been sidelined since the beginning of November with an MCL sprain in his right knee, but he's ramping up and only has a couple of hurdles left to clear for his return. Before his injury, McLaughlin averaged 3.8 minutes in five appearances.

  • Timberwolves' Jordan McLaughlin: Gets shots up Monday

    McLaughlin (knee) was spotted during Monday's shootaround getting shots up while sporting a knee brace, Jace Frederick of St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    McLaughlin was diagnosed with an MCL sprain in his right knee at the beginning of November and will be re-evaluated at the beginning of December. It's encouraging to see him participating in basketball activities already, and he could be cleared to return shortly after his next evaluation, though he's slated to remain sidelined for the immediate future. He averaged just 3.8 minutes per game across five appearances before being shut down.

  • Timberwolves' Jordan McLaughlin: Out at least four weeks

    McLaughlin was diagnosed with a right knee MCL sprain Tuesday and will re-evaluated in four weeks, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    McLaughlin suffered his injury in Monday's matchup with Boston and will now be headed toward a lengthy absence. McLaughlin is averaging just 3.8 minutes across his five appearances this season, so his absence shouldn't have a big impact on Minnesota's rotation.

  • Timberwolves' Jordan McLaughlin: Early exit Monday

    McLaughlin (knee) is out for the remainder of Monday's game against Boston.

    McLaughlin was diagnosed with right knee soreness in the second half of Monday's game against Boston and was promptly ruled out for the remainder of the contest. Shake Milton and Nickeil Alexander-Walker will absorb his role, although neither typically replicates McLaughlin's true point-guard archetype.

  • Timberwolves' Jordan McLaughlin: Solid finish to preseason

    McLaughlin scored 11 points (4-5 FG, 3-4 3Pt) while adding four assists and a rebound in 13 minutes off the bench during Thursday's 114-105 preseason win over the Bulls.

    Mike Conley (illness) and Jaden McDaniels (calf) weren't in the lineup, but Minnesota coach Chris Finch elected to keep McLaughlin in his usual role on the second unit for Minnesota's preseason finale, moving Shake Milton and Nickeil Alexander-Walker into the starting five instead. McLaughlin still wound up tying Milton and Kyle Anderson for the team lead in assists despite playing fewer minutes than either, but even if Conley were to miss time during the regular season with a more significant issue, it's not clear McLaughlin would directly benefit.

  • Timberwolves' Jordan McLaughlin: Scores two off bench

    McLaughlin posted two points (1-2 FG), two assists and a steal in 12 minutes during Thursday's 111-99 preseason win over the Mavericks.

    McLaughlin saw double-digit minutes off the bench but failed to generate much production, a trend that could continue into the regular season. He played exclusively off the bench last season and averaged 3.7 points and 3.4 assists in 15.8 minutes per game.
