Michael Beasley's return still in question
Coach Kurt Rambis said Beasley participated in all of Friday's practice but said the team's second-leading scorer was continuing to favor the ankle as he moved around. The Timberwolves host Orlando on Saturday.
Beasley was held out of Thursday's win over Washington after aggravating the nagging injury in Tuesday's loss to San Antonio.
Rookie Wesley Johnson replaced Beasley at small forward in the starting lineup on Thursday. In his first season with Minnesota, Beasley is averaging 20.9 points and 33.7 minutes per game.
