Timberwolves Center Rudy Gobert suspended for play-in game versus Lakers.: The Minnesota Timberwolves have suspended Center Rudy Gobert after he threw a punch at teammate Kyle Anderson in Sunday's game vs. the Pelicans and was sent home during the game. The Wolves traded five first round picks to Utah this Summer for Gobert, including 2022 breakout rookie Center Walker Kessler.

The Timberwolves will also be without their best wing defender, Jaden McDaniels, who broke his hand during the same game while punching a wall after getting upset over foul calls.

The T-Wolves season won't end if they lose tomorrow night (the loser of both of tomorrow's games* goes on to play the winners of Wednesday's games** in a win-or-go-home match-up), but I know I'd want my two best defenders on hand if I were about to go up in a huge game against Anthony Davis and LeBron James (not to mention Austin Reaves).

I think the tiny handful of teams that didn't make the playoffs should still get invited to the White House.

Holy Clint Longley, Batman!

If he'll do that on the sideline during a game what's he been doing behind closed doors?
