Jordan McLaughlin Has Knee Sprain, Out At Least One Month

Jordan McLaughlin has played sparingly for the Timberwolves so far this season and he won’t play at all for at least the next month.

McLaughlin underwent an MRI on Tuesday that revealed a right knee MCL sprain, according to a team press release. He will be reevaluated in four weeks.

McLaughlin was injured during a four-minute stint against Boston on Monday. He has appeared in five games last season.

It’s a rough blow for a 27-year-old reserve who will be a free agent after the season. He had his $2.32MM salary for this season guaranteed prior to the start of free agency in July.

A member of the Timberwolves since the 2019/20 season, McLaughlin appeared in 43 games last season and a career-high 62 in 2021/22. He sports career averages of 4.6 points and 3.4 assists in 16.4 minutes over 197 career games.
