Timberwolves coach ponders how best to meld and separate D'Angelo Russell and Karl-Anthony Towns

D'Angelo Russell's return to the floor has introduced a question Timberwolves coach Chris Finch hadn't thought about much but one that he'll consider moving forward: How much does he want to play Russell and Karl-Anthony Towns together and how much would he want them to play apart so as to keep the offense balanced when either needs a rest.

How it looked over Russell's first two games back is unlikely to be the plan moving forward in part because Russell was on a minutes restriction, Finch said.

"I've never really mapped it out yet, I'm just trying to deal with the present situation, and with D-Lo's minutes restriction at about 24, it's more beneficial for us to bring him in off the bench and play like six-minute runs," Finch said.
