Status: D'Angelo Russell won't play vs. the Lakers on Tuesday and his return may have "a little delay," according to coach Chris Finch.

"Finch said last Wednesday that Russell "could be doing on-court work" over the past weekend, but that was premature. "I don't think it's anything too great of a concern," Finch said. The Wolves tend to be cagey with injury updates, so it's refreshing to at least hear Finch provide some insights even if they're not what fantasy managers were hoping to hear. We'll consider him 'out indefinitely' until he makes it through some on-court work."

Seems like he'll still return before JJJ does :')

The Timberwolves have lost 5 straight since hiring Finch. How many more games in a row would they have to lose before they would have to fire him?

Shoutout to No Dunks for asking this question as I thought it was pretty interesting.

There’s already a long leash for coaches in their first and year probably an even longer leash for finch considering the unusual way he was hired. If the timberwolves lost 25 in a row would they fire him? 30?

The number is also probably related to when KAT would start publicly voicing his frustration. We also have to keep in mind that finch is Rosas’s guy and Rosas probably won’t get fired as the owner is looking to sell the team rn. Man what a mess

[OC] 5 Things to Expect for the Timberwolves With New Coach Chris Finch

With Saunders now gone, many fans are wondering what we should expect from new coach Chris Finch to turn around what has been one of the worst teams in the league. Here's what I personally expect to see, and honestly the bar is so low right now that any improvement will be noticeable. Some things will probably be similar to what Saunders was attempting to do - only so much can change - so keep this in mind.

  1. The team will play fast - We will still get some over dribbling by the guards but I'm expecting Finch to give players like Rubio and Russell less freedom here than Saunders did. Finch has put a priority on playmaking and pressing the defense in his career.
  2. Players will have the green light to shoot - For better or worse (points at Okoge) if a player is open they will need to pull the trigger. I predict Finch will keep his rotations wide open to start to evaluate the entire team then narrow down to a more compact rotation in a few weeks.
  3. Be ready for experimentation and variance in playstyle - It didn't matter if the Wolves were playing Atlanta or Philly, Saunders had one style of play with minor adjustments. Finch isn't going to be a replica here and it's probably the biggest difference between Saunders and him. Expect some weird lineups and for the team to take advantage of matchups much more often.
  4. The ball to be in the hands of Towns in a playmaking position - Under Saunders so far this season, Towns had three modes - pick and pop, spot up shooter, and post scorer. I expect Finch to put the ball in his hands more to actually run the offense. He's by far the best player on offense and giving him the ball at the elbow, especially against slower centers, will create open shots.
  5. More off ball movement to create better shots - Another way Towns and others will create more open shots is simply through more off ball movement. Finch and Toronto coach Nick Nurse are both huge advocates of staggered screens and aggressive cutting to the basket to create open looks. Expect the amount of standing around on offense to be significantly reduced, especially for players like Beasley who are good shooters but sometimes need help getting space to operate.

Anyways, those are my thoughts about what to expect from Finch in the context of the Wolves so far this season. We're getting a coach that wants to play an up-tempo style and is willing to try different (and sometimes unconventional) things based on the situation. Thanks for re

One word to describe Chris Finch

For me it’s competence. I haven’t been able to watch much since he took over but from afar it just seems like the guy is in total control. There’s a rhyme and reason to what the Wolves are doing on the floor. Gone are the frequent moments where you’re like, what is he doing?! Or post game comments like, did he really just say that?

I know we’re still in that honeymoon period with a new coach but for the first time since maybe Thibs (or more like Rick Adelman) I feel like the Wolves are in good hands. I hope it lasts lol

Chris Finch Optimism Round 2

A couple weeks ago I posted a Chris Finch optimism thread because I had already heard people saying he was a bad coach and I felt the need to defend him. Obviously these days people are much higher on him (everything to do with my insightful post that maybe 50 people read, nothing to do with the post ASG success) and I wanted to share some things I've seen from him that have really impressed me.

  1. The rotations have been very impressive to me, especially post all star break after he had a chance to learn more about the roster. KAT has been averaging 33 minutes and Ant has averaged 34 minutes since Finch took over. But their game to game minutes have actually fluctuated from less than 30 in one game up to 40 in another game. This is because Finch has been doing an great job of deviating from set rotations to ride lineups/players who are having success in a particular game. KAT and Ant were lighting it up last night and they played a lot of minutes as a result. If you look at the rotations from game to game they're very different from each other, which leads to my next point.

  2. He's been making very clear and purposeful adjustments in-game that we just haven't seen a coach make for as long as I can remember. Booker was lighting us up last night, Finch puts Okogie in and basically erases Booker for the rest of the game. This also goes back to my previous point. Making adjustments isn't always shaking things up. Sometimes it's "this lineup is playing lights out right now. I'd usually sub them out with 4min left in the quarter but I'm going to let them ride it out." Super refreshing compared to the last couple of coaches who seemed committed to strict rotations no matter what

  3. TIMEOUTS. He'll take a timeout after just a 4 point swing if he doesn't like what he sees instead of waiting for a 15-3 scoring run. Also, the team comes out of timeouts playing better and most of the time it's easy to see that adjustments were made. A big complaint with this team for a long time has been our set plays after timeouts. Thibs and Saunders had a knack for drawing up plays that had 1 action and if that didn't work they were screwed. The last sideline OB play last night was a beautifully drawn up play. There were 3 or 4 options right away that stirred the defense up perfectly to allow for that last cut by Juancho.

  4. The players truly seem to like him, listen to him, and play hard for him. The players loved Saunders. I don't think that was an act. But it's gott
