The Minnesota Timberwolves commence training camp in just seven days. That’s right, on September 27, 2023, basketball returns for Timberwolves fans worldwide. Perhaps not a moment too soon for the Minnesota Timberwolves roster, a team packed with multiple players who competed throughout the summer during the 2023 FIBA World Cup Tournament.

But summer is over, and the 2023 FIBA WC tourney is in the rearview mirror. What is coming up for the Timberwolves in the near future?

Checklist one: The Minnesota Timberwolves will be joined by the Dallas Mavericks in the annual NBA Abu Dhabi Games, to be played on Thursday, October 5, 2023, and Saturday, October 7, 2023, at Etihad Arena on Yas Island.  These games officially mark the start of the NBA preseason, and the Timberwolves and Mavericks are two NBA teams that very much have sights set on the 2024 NBA Playoffs.

Checklist two: Because preseason starts so early, both the Minnesota Timberwolves and the Dallas Mavericks are permitted to begin their 2023 Training camp a week early. Players are permitted to report to the Timberwolves on September 26, 2023, and their 2023 Training Camp will officially begin on September 27, 2023.

Checklist three: With so many new faces on the Timberwolves roster, it’s vital that fans take the time to learn who is on the team, and where on the Timberwolves depth chart the players fall.  While we are just seven days away from the 2023 Timberwolves Training Camp, the team still has open roster slots to fill.

Timberwolves 15-man roster: 14 players signed
Timberwolves 3 Two-Way contracts: 2 players signed
Timberwolves Exhibit-10 contracts (up to 6): 3 players signed

And so, with days rapidly becoming hours until the Minnesota Timberwolves start playing real basketball, the pressure is on. Not just on the Minnesota Timberwolves alone, but on the Timberwolves fans to get up to speed rather quickly:
