Minnesota Timberwolves guard Patrick Beverley will be out at least two weeks due to an adductor strain, per head coach Chris Finch. Beverley was injured early in the Wolves home victory over the Miami Heat on November 24.

Minnesota has given Beverley a lot of credit for their defensive improvement. After years of languishing in the bottom-10 of the NBA in defense, the Timberwolves currently rank fifth in the league.

In 16 games (12 starts) Beverley has averaged 8.1 points. 4.4 rebounds and 4.5 assists per contest. The Wolves acquired Beverley in the offseason from the Memphis Grizzlies for Jarrett Culver and Juancho Hernangomez.
