In Friday’s closely contested 117-110 win over the San Antonio Spurs, Timberwolves’ Naz Reid had to leave the game due to neck spasms, and unfortunately, he couldn’t return to the court.

Initially, there were uncertainties among the Timberwolves about his comeback, but this happened during the last few minutes of the fourth quarter.

Before his abrupt departure, Reid had a significant impact, contributing 7 points and securing 3 rebounds in his 13 minutes of play.

Looking ahead to Sunday’s game against the Golden State Warriors, his availability remains uncertain.

If he is unable to take the court, we might witness adjustments in the lineups, potentially favoring smaller combinations with players like Kyle Anderson and Shake Milton.
