The NBA is reportedly going to approve a return-to-play proposal Thursday that would bring 22 teams to Orlando for eight regular-season games each and the playoffs. The Timberwolves are not one of them.
While speaking out a generation ago might have been deemed harmful to a brand, staying silent during a time of national crisis in 2020 can create an impression of being complacent at best and complicit at worst.
It's possible the Wolves' last game was on March 10 in Houston. Several return to play scenarios have circulated recently, and some of those include leaving teams near the bottom of the standings out of the mix.
