Timberwolves fined by NBA for resting Russell
 

 
The Minnesota Timberwolves have been fined $25,000 for resting star guard D'Angelo Russell, the NBA announced.

Minnesota violated the league's player resting policy after 2019 All-Star Russell Ė who sat out on February 8 due to a quadriceps injury Ė did not face the Denver Nuggets on Sunday.

The NBA "deemed Russell a healthy player under the policy that was designed in part to minimise star player absences from nationally televised games".

In a statement, the Timberwolves said: ''While we respect the league's guidelines and standards, we are a player-centric organisation that's focused on learning and optimizing our players' bodies.

''As a new player in our program, we chose to rest D'Angelo in order to learn his body better and to optimise his health during a difficult stretch of games and travel."

Russell Ė acquired from the Golden State Warriors prior to the trade deadline Ė is averaging 23.7 points, 6.5 a*sists and 3.7 rebounds per game this season.

There's a rule against resting players? The NBA is weird af for that one. They care more about ratings and money than they do the health of the players.

Ah... Somebody gets it. They dnt care about doping or anything! They only care about what the fans(money) care about. All professional sports leagues are businesses!

I used to agree wit u until I started going to games. Some of yall miss the part where it says they can rest at home games that are not nationally televised. When you get tickets the more star power a team has the more expensive tickets. So if Iím paying a premium price and the visiting team star or stars didnít play then what am I paying that high price for?

It makes sense because home games you can rest and the fans in theory have multiple times (40+)to see their star player. When someone visits your arena chances are they are only Visiting for a game or two. Some of yall whine about PPV prices. Well try paying a couple hundred to watch some role players and tell me how happy you are.

Also to me if the old school players rarely missed games and they had it more physical why not? Today we have better recovery and medical techniques. They be aight

Even hospitals are about money. Bottom line is always money. Fans bring money. When they didnít wanna hurt China feelings letís you know all you need to about whatís important to the league

ban him for this post @
I know it hurts bro, Don't worry ..

He went to BK you thought he found a home

He went Warriors you thought he was the third splash brother

After half a season they shipped him off to Minnesota for Andrew Wiggins.

I tried to tell you that dlo is a HORRIBLE defender and you just can't take him seriously as player who can be part of a championship team.

He'll be a good scorer now doubt but that's where it ends, he's a high scoring journeyman

Eventually he'll end up finding a home on a team as 6th man later on in his career if his frail knees hold up

He just got a game winning block last night and 2 steals in that game. Have you smoked today or something ?

Yeah this news to me, because now they're just picking and choosing. This some weak sh*t to do to the Timberwolves, considering they have healthy stars openingly sitting out games every other night.

That's what makes you think he's good defender?

Not the other 90% of the time when he has cement feet on defense?

You just exposed your casual

I bet when you see James harden get an occasional block you think he's a good defender too

If you have an existing injury, like king James with his torn groin and Kawhi with his legs.. you can always pull them from games as “recovering” from those injuries. Same goes for Zion. Zion can essentially load manage his whole career because of his current and past injuries with no issues. Where the Timberwolves went wrong was blatantly resting D-Lo and not disguising it with a current Injury . It’s there fault
