Shabazz Muhammad Out for 2 Weeks Due to Oblique Strain

by January 13, 2015

The Minnesota Timberwolves announced Monday that swingman Shabazz Muhammad will miss at least two weeks, as he deals with an external oblique strain:

Muhammad has put up averages of 16.9 points and 4.9 rebounds since December for Minny, which has been ravaged by the injury bug.

Per the Star Tribune:

Forward Shabazz Muhammad will be out a few weeks because of an abdominal injury, and center Gorgui Dieng missed practice because of an illness.


“We can’t have everybody; it wouldn’t be good to have everybody at practice,” Wolves coach Flip Saunders joked. “It would be too easy.”


Wolves point guard Ricky Rubio, center Nikola Pekovic and guard Kevin Martin all participated in practice Monday, though there’s still no timetable for their return.
