Q: How did you battle back from your injury and how is rehab coming along? Patrick Beverley: Rehab is fine — over and done with. I got cleared about two months ago by Dr. Lowe. (I was) coming from a season where I (was) playing, arguably, the best basketball I’ve ever played in my life. (I had) a career high in points (and) a career high in steals. (It was) an unfortunate situation, but everything happens for a reason. It forced me to get stronger, mentally and physically. I’m ready to go.

Beverley had season-ending surgery on Nov. 22 and had been expected to need a full nine months before receiving Thursday’s medical clearance. “I saw Pat [Thursday] and ordered a new MRI approximately six months out from his microfracture biocartilage repair and lateral meniscus repair,” Lowe told ESPN in a statement. “His recovery has been remarkable and I have cleared him to return to all basketball activities. This speedy recovery is a testament to Pat’s diligence to the comprehensive rehabilitation program between Houston and LA.”
Patrick Beverley: 1st workout with @MilosTeodosic4 today. Feels good to be back!!!!
“I’m running, I’m shooting, I’m jumping, I’m ball-handling, doing defensive slides,” said Beverley. “I mean, I feel ready, but I guess everyone else is thinking long-term. I wanted to come back like 4-or-5 games ago, but everyone’s thinking long-term. Of course, I’m not a doctor. They get paid to do what they do and give me the best advice they possibly can, and the best advice is longevity. I can’t argue with that.” He also said he expects to be fully ready and back to his old self by training camp, which is set to take place in Hawaii for the second-straight year. “Hell yeah [I’ll be ready]!” said Beverley. “120%! I feel strong as sh*t. I’ve been doing everything, so we’ll just see.”

Butler and Thibodeau met on Tuesday in Los Angeles to discuss his situation, according to multiple sources. Over the last several weeks, Butler began to seriously contemplate his future with the Timberwolves and a potential trade request, league sources said. It was in that meeting that Butler expressed a desire to be traded, telling Thibodeau that he does not intend to sign a long-term extension with the Wolves next summer. He has provided a list of one to three teams with which he would be open to signing a long-term deal, sources said.
Thibodeau was initially resistant to the idea, according to sources, but Butler is determined to find a new home. The Timberwolves are scheduled to have media day on Monday and their first training camp practice on Tuesday, so the clock is ticking.
