MINNEAPOLIS -- Dante Cunningham is once again back with the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Two days after being arrested for the second time in four days on Sunday, Cunningham was in uniform Tuesday night against the visiting San Antonio and back in the bench rotation for the injury-riddled Wolves.

Cunningham entered the game for the first time at the start of the second quarter. He ended the night with five points in 15 total minutes.

Before Tuesday's game, Cunningham issued a statement through the Wolves addressing his recent legal troubles.

"The charges and accusations in my personal life have unintentionally placed my teammates and the organization in a challenging position," Cunningham said in the statement. "I cannot comment on the charges, as we require that the facts play out through the legal process. Thank you for your understanding."

Cunningham was originally arrested early Thursday morning and charged Friday with felony domestic assault stemming from allegations made by his live-in girlfriend.

Following his release after posting bail, he rejoined the team Saturday and played in the Wolves' loss at Orlando. On Sunday morning, he was arrested again on suspicion that he made "terroristic" threats to the same woman through text messages.

Cunningham was released on $150,000 bail on Monday.

In a statement released Tuesday afternoon, the Hennepin County attorney's office said Cunningham was not being charged at the present moment with making terroristic threats. Cunningham could still be charged at a later date.
