After missing the past five games with a sprained ankle, Alexey Shved expects to return to the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday night against the Los Angeles Clippers, agent Obrad Fimic told RealGM.
Shved had wanted to come back at some point last week, but he and the Timberwolves ultimately believed that he needed more time to heal his left ankle. The 24-year-old participated in practice on Monday as the team played scrimmage games.
With averages of almost 11 points and five assists, Shved has been one of the top rookies this season.
The Timberwolves also signed both Mickael Gelabale and Chris Johnson to second 10-day contracts on Tuesday.
