The Minnesota Timberwolves announced Thursday that forward Robert Covington, guard Derrick Rose and guard Jeff Teague will miss the remainder of this season due to injuries.

Covington has missed the last 34 games with a right knee bone bruise and recently suffered a setback in his recovery.


Rose has missed the last four games with a elbow injury and an MRI revealed a chip fracture in his right elbow. They are exploring further treatment options.

Teague has missed the last four games after with an injury to his left foot that he originally suffered in December. He will wear a walking boot and be reevaluated in approximately three weeks.

As of Thursday morning, the Timberwolves have 11 games remaining in the 2018-19 regular season and are 9 1/2 games back of the final playoff spot in the Western Conference. The Timberwolves are on the road against the Charlotte Hornets on Thursday night.
