Description: Wolves point guard Alexey Shved is ready to go just three days after suffering a broken nose. SOURCE: Alan Horton, Timberwolves.com
Insight: He'll be wearing a protective mask tonight against Golden State. Shved (4.2 ppg) hasn't been playing enough to warrant fantasy consideration (just 11.7 mpg).
 
1/21/2014 10:50:00 PM
Description: Minnesota guard Alexey Shved apparently suffered a broken nose on Tuesday in the second quarter.
Insight: Shved has been inconsistent this season ... to be kind. He's shooting just 32 percent from the field and averaging half what he did last season.
 
1/30/2013 11:33:00 AM
Description: Minnesota guard Alexey Shved (ankle) is probable for Wednesday's game against the LA Clippers. He's coming back from a sprained left ankle which caused him to miss the last five games.
Insight: Shved is averaging 10.7 ppg, 2.5 rpg, 4.6 apg. Luke Ridnour continues to get the larger share of the shooting guard minutes.
 
1/24/2013 5:35:00 PM
Description: T-Wolves guard Alexey Shved (ankle) will miss Friday's game. He didn't travel with the team.
Insight: Shved's participation in practice on Tuesday obviously didn't mean that he is ready to play yet. Friday will be his fourth straight absence. Ricky Rubio, Luke Ridnour and J.J. Barea have been splitting the minutes at the two guard spots, but Rubio was benched late in Wednesday's game.

Description: T-Wolves guard Alexey Shved (ankle) won't play Wednesday.
Insight: Shved's participation in practice on Tuesday obviously didn't mean that he is ready to play yet. Wednesday will be his third straight absence. Ricky Rubio, Luke Ridnour and J.J. Barea have been splitting the minutes at the two guard spots.
 
1/20/2013 2:44:00 PM
Description: T-Wolves guard Alexey Shved is out for Monday's game against the Hawks. He's still recovering from a sprained left ankle.
Insight: He's not traveling with the team to Atlanta. Shved also missed Saturday's game against Houston, opening up extra minutes for Luke Ridnour, Ricky Rubio and J.J. Barea.
 
1/17/2013 10:44:00 PM
Description: Minnesota guard Alexey Shved injured his left ankle late in Thursday night's loss to the Clippers.
Insight: If Shved can't suit up for Saturday's game against the Rockets, Luke Ridnour and J.J. Barea should both see more minutes.

Description: Timberwolves guard Alexey Shved (illness) is expected to play Thursday against the Clippers. SOURCE: Ray Richardson, St. Paul Pioneer Press
Insight: J.J. Barea has cut into Shved's minutes over the last two games after returning from a back injury. With Ricky Rubio getting healthy and Barea back in action, Minnesota's guard minutes will be spread around to four players.
 
12/17/2012 9:41:00 PM
Description: Timberwolves guard Alexey Shved's third game as the starting two-guard didn't go as well as the first two. He only scored three points on 1-of-8 shooting with four turnovers Monday against Orlando.
Insight: Shved scored 15.5 ppg with six 3-pointers in his first two games after moving into the starting lineup, so consider Monday's game a minor hiccup. Shved also has at least five assists in four straight games.
 
12/15/2012 10:22:00 AM
Description: In his first game as the starting shooting guard, Alexey Shved scored 13 points with three 3-pointers and eight assists to help Minnesota beat New Orleans on Friday.
Insight: With Malcolm Lee out with an injured knee, Shved has moved into the starting lineup. He played nearly 35 minutes Friday, his second highest total of the season.
 
12/14/2012 1:24:00 PM
Description: Timberwolves rookie guard Alexey Shved has averaged 12.6 ppg over his last six games and is likely getting the jump up to starter with the knee injury to Malcolm Lee.
Insight: Shved started the second half against Denver after the injury knocked Lee out of the game finishing with eight points, two rebounds, five assists and two steals.
 
Hot12/4/2012 9:47:00 PM
Description: Timberwolves rookie guard Alexey Shved has made 11-of-19 from 3-point range and is averaging 16.7 ppg over his last three games.
Insight: Shved, who scored 17 points with three rebounds and four assists Tuesday at Philadelphia, has flourished in an expanded role recently. Malcolm Lee (10 points) is penciled in as the starting two-guard but Shved and J.J. Barea (11 points, 10 assists) are both getting more playing time off the bench.
 
11/30/2012 11:06:00 PM
Description: Timberwolves rookie guard Alexey Shved hit 4-of-6 from 3-point range for 16 points with five assists and three boards Friday against the Bucks.
Insight: Shved hit three from deep Wednesday and had 17 points. He's been getting plenty of playing time and should continue to be a solid option as part of Minnesota's three-guard rotation with Luke Ridnour and J.J. Barea.
 
11/16/2012 10:59:00 PM
Description: Timberwolves rookie guard Alexey Shved scored a career-best 22 points on 8-of-17 shooting (3-of-8 3PT) with seven assists and three boards off the bench Friday against the Warriors.
Insight: With J.J. Barea and Brandon Roy nursing injuries, Minnesota has leaned on Shved the last few games and he's responded with 17 ppg the last three contests. The Timberwolves don't play again until Wednesday so both starting guards have plenty of time to rest.
