Jaden McDaniels Fractures Hand Punching Wall During Game
The Minnesota Timberwolves are having a rough day. First, Rudy Gobert took a swing at his teammate during a timeout. That was bad enough. Now, Jaden McDaniels fractured his hand after punching a wall during the team's game against the New Orleans Pelicans.
Not the smartest move I've ever seen an NBA player pull.
Shortly thereafter, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski announced McDaniels, indeed, had fractured his hand:
Now the Timberwolves will enter the 2023 play-in tournament without the 22-year-old forward. McDaniels isn't a bench guy, either. He's started all 78 games he's played in this season and is averaging 12.2 points, 3.9 rebounds and 1.9 assists in 30.9 minutes per game. He's a huge piece of what the T-Wolves do.
Now he almost certainly won't be available for the playoffs.
