The Timberwolves were 19-21 at the time, but the damage had been done after a tumultuous and drama-filled situation with Jimmy Butler led to his trade to Philadelphia for Covington, Dario Saric and a draft pick.
Still, interim coach Ryan Saunders has been adamant that he wants the Wolves' best lineup on the floor every night. He's missed 34 straight games. But the team announced Thursday that the two-way standout "recently suffered a setback which will require further treatment". He's expected to miss the rest of the season.
Rose has been dealing with elbow pain, forcing him to miss the team's last four games due to soreness and swelling. An MRI taken Tuesday revealed a chip fracture and a loose body in his elbow.
The Wolves said they and Rose "are now exploring further treatment options".
Like Rose, Teague has been out for the last four games after reaggravating a left foot injury that kept him off the court in December.
It was a remarkable bounce back season for Rose, who averaged 18.0 points per game to go along with 4.3 assists.
Finally, forward Robert Covington, who has not played since December 31st due to a bone bruise in his right knee, will not play again this year. He had an injection on Tuesday to treat chronic inflammation. As a result, he is not expected to return to the court this season.
The Wolves have 11 games left, and wrap up the regular season in Denver on April 10.
