Both Derrick Rose (ankle) and Robert Covington (knee) will remain out vs. the Lakers on Sunday.
Rose will miss his fifth straight game with this ankle injury and Covington will be re-evaluated at the end of the week. However, Covington is still expected to miss multiple weeks with the bone bruise. Both Rose and Covington are essential to the Wolves winning games and they'll need them back as soon as possible if they want to make any type of playoff push. With Rose and Covington out look for Tyus Jones and Josh Okogie to be the biggest beneficiaries.
