Ryan Saunders Rumors

Gorgui Dieng missed the Timberwolves’ first two games out of the All-Star break because of personal reasons. When he came rejoined, Dieng was out of the rotation. The backup center has not played in any of the past three games, including Thursday night’s 122-115 loss to the Indiana Pacers, even though he was healthy. Dieng’s benching was a call interim coach Ryan Saunders made.
