Wolves’ Rose (elbow), others out rest of year

The Minnesota Timberwolves announced Thursday that guard Derrick Rose, guard Jeff Teague and forward Robert Covington are all expected to be out for the rest of the season.

Covington has missed the last 34 games while recovering from a right knee bone bruise suffered Dec. 31 at New Orleans. He suffered a setback that will require further treatment before returning to the court.

Rose has missed the last four games while experiencing soreness and swelling in his right elbow. An MRI taken Tuesday revealed a chip fracture and a loose body in his elbow.

Teague has missed the last four games after reaggravating a left foot injury, originally suffered in December. On Tuesday, Teague received an injection designed to treat chronic inflammation. He will wear a boot and is scheduled to be reevaluated in approximately three weeks.

Minnesota is 32-39, 9 1/2 games out of the last spot in the playoffs in the Western Conference.
