The Minnesota Timberwolves announced on Thursday injury updates regarding Robert Covington, Derrick Rose and Jeff Teague.

Covington, who has missed the last 34 games while recovering from a right knee bone bruise, had made improvements in his recovery and had progressed on-court activites. However, he recently suffered a setback which will require further treatment before returning to the court. As a result, he is expected to miss the remainder of the season.

Rose has missed the last four games while experiencing soreness and swelling in his right elbow. An MRI taken Tuesday at Mayo Clinic Square revealed a chip fracture and a loose body in his elbow. As a result, he is expected to miss the rest of the season. 

Teague has also missed the past four games after reaggravating a left foot injury that was originally suffered in December, according to the team. On Tuesday, Teague received an injection designed to treat chronic inflammation. He will now wear a boot and will miss the remainder of the 2018-2019 season.

The Timberwolves have 11 games remaining in the regular season. At 32-39 and 10 games back of the eighth-seeded Oklahoma City Thunder, they are expected to miss playoffs.
