With a deadline of Tuesday, KSTP Sports has learned that the Timberwolves have formally exercised 2021-2022 options on Josh Okogie and Jarrett Culver's rookie contracts. Neither decision comes as a surprise, with both players key parts of the rotation.

KSTP Sports has also learned that Okogie suffered a hamstring strain in Sunday night's loss vs. the Lakers.

His status for Tuesday's game at the Clippers is uncertain.
