The Minnesota Timberwolves have released the next episode of Track the Pack, this time focusing on the Wolves’ In-Market Bubble.

The Minnesota Timberwolves are now a few weeks removed from their In-Market Bubble, but the team has released an episode of their video mini-series that focuses on highlights from the bubble.

It’s an intriguing look into what the Wolves were looking to accomplish during the bubble, as well as both the on-court portions as well as the team outings away from the hardwood.

The Minnesota Timberwolves took a holistic approach to their league-allowed, non-mandatory In-Market Bubble, which took place in late-September.

The Wolves released limited updates during the bubble itself, only offering highly-produced clips and highlight reels. Now, much of that has been cut together into a 15-minute-plus episode of Track the Pack, the 11th episode since the series began just over a year ago.

It takes us through the introductory session, including the welcome call that owner Glen Taylor and his wife, Becky, placed via Zoom. Also, comments to the team from both head coach Ryan Saunders and President of Basketball Operations Gersson Rosas.

Then, a look at a couple of practices, warmup sessions of dodgeball and soccer, and fun in the player lounge. Plus, a bonding experience for a lunch cruise to Lake Minnetonka.

Then, it was off to Target Center for a game-night-like experience, including a PA announcer, full uniforms, music, and more.

There will be a second episode of Track the Pack related to the In-Market Bubble coming soon, so stay tuned for the release of Part Two.

The Wolves appear to have done a great job balancing on-court workouts with fun away from the floor. Remember, Karl-Anthony Towns, Malik Beasley, and Juan Hernangomez weren’t present for any of the official bubble, although they were all in town for informal workouts leading up to the quarantine period.

As we’ll see in the next episode, veterans D’Angelo Russell and James Johnson both exited the bubble midway through, so expect to see less of them moving forward in the series.
