The Timberwolves' new Nike uniforms will be released Thursday, and if Minnesota follows the same template as other teams for their reveal, you will see them first via the Wolves' Twitter account.
If you're an impatient type who prefers to see what the new uniforms might look like, there have been a few recent leaked images. As noted by the Uni Watch blog — which exists because people are obsessed with sports clothes — they are just potential looks.
One is a video-game screen shot and the other is on a mannequin, but they bear some similarities to each other with the placement of the Nike logo on the jersey, the thick horizontal stripe near the top of the jersey, the different color around the neck and the style of shorts.
Perhaps more interesting is an Instagram post by Wolves star Andrew Wiggins in which he appears to be wearing the new shorts — which look an awful lot like the ones from the video game.
