D-Lo unlikely to play vs. Warriors in first of two matchups originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea

It sounds like former Warriors guard D'Angelo Russell will not take the floor Monday night.

Minnesota Timberwolves coach Ryan Saunders on Monday morning said D-Lo is "unlikely" to face the Dubs at Chase Center.

Minnesota also will be without star big man Karl-Anthony Towns, who tested positive for COVID-19 on Jan. 15.

Russell did not play against the New Orleans Pelicans on Saturday when the T-Wolves snapped their four-game losing streak.

The 24-year-old is averaging 20.5 points and 5.5 assists this season while shooting 43.2 percent from the field and 40 percent from beyond the arc.

The Warriors traded Russell to the T-Wolves just before last season's NBA trade deadline in exchange for Andrew Wiggins and a 2021 top-three protected first-round pick (which becomes unprotected in 2022).

Golden State and Minnesota are scheduled to play again Wednesday night.
