Minnesota Timberwolves forward Jake Layman was cleared to return to practice Thursday after missing 39 games with a sprained left toe.
The team said the 25-year-old will be reevaluated in one week to determine updates to his playing status.
Layman injured the toe on Nov. 18 at Utah and has been evaluated by multiple foot specialists since.
In 14 games (two starts) this season, he is averaging a career-high 10.5 points on 46.2 percent shooting, including a career-best 35.2 percent shooting from 3-point range.
Layman has career averages of 5.2 points, 1.9 rebounds and 13.6 minutes in 155 games (37 starts) with the Portland Trail Blazers (2016-19) and Timberwolves.
