Jaden McDaniels (personal) out for Minnesota on Friday

Minnesota Timberwolves forward Jaden McDaniels will not play Friday in the team's game against the Miami Heat.

What It Means:

McDaniels is dealing with a personal issue, and as a result, he will not suit up to face Jimmy Butler and the Heat. It's unclear how long he'll be gone, but at the very least, he'll sit to start the weekend. Look for Jarred Vanderbilt to potentially return to the starting lineup.

In 59 games this season, McDaniels has averaged 6.8 points, 3.7 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 16.9 FanDuel points.
