Nemanja Bjelica didn't score a point during the Wolves' Wednesday night win over the Nuggets but he did come away with two rebounds and three steals.
Belly is of course on Minnesota's bench and it's not like Tom Thibodeau is known for embracing depth. Tonight was a good example of that as all the starters played at least 35 minutes and only one guy on the bench got more than 11 minutes. Bjelica did get a solid amount of playing time in the absence of Jimmy Butler including a 30-point, 12-rebound game against one of the better teams in the league in the Celtics. He even sported top-100 value in the month of March. Bjelica might not ever get a consistently strong workload in Minnesota but he's shown potential in a more featured role.
