The Minnesota Timberwolves have qualified for the NBA Playoffs once again. What kind of performance can they expect? Will the Timberwolves be able to advance past the first round?
The Minnesota Timberwolves are back in the NBA Playoffs in 2022! The Timberwolves haven’t had much playoff success in recent years, and they’re up against one of the most entertaining teams in the NBA this season: the Memphis Grizzlies.
Minnesota’s last appearance in the playoffs was in the 2017-2018 season. Unfortunately, Minnesota’s Timberwolves did not get past the first round of the playoffs. The Timberwolves hadn’t made the playoffs since the 2003-2004 season before then.
If the Timberwolves win any game in the playoffs, they’ll likely be happy.
The following is the Timberwolves’ playoff schedule:

The Timberwolves will play the Grizzlies in the first round, and it should be an exciting matchup to follow. The first two games will be held in Memphis, while the third and fourth games will be held in Minneapolis.
Minnesota’s first-round series schedule is as follows:
- Game 1: Saturday, April 16 at 3:30 p.m. ET (in Memphis)
- Game 2: Tuesday, April 19 at TBD (in Memphis)
- Game 3: Thursday, April 21 at 7:30 p.m. ET (in Minneapolis)
- Game 4: Sunday, April 24 at TBD (in Minneapolis)
- Game 5 (if necessary): TBD
- Game 6 (if necessary): TBD
- Game 7 (if necessary): TBD
It’s unclear whether games 5 through 7 will be necessary, and the NBA has yet to determine a timetable for those games. If the games must be played, game 5 will take place in Memphis and game 6 will take place in Minneapolis. Memphis will host Game 7.
The Timberwolves haven’t advanced past the first round of the NBA Playoffs since 2004, but there’s a chance they’ll go past Memphis this time. If that occurs, more information about their next opponent will be added to this page.
