Dante Cunningham was back with the Minnesota Timberwolves on Saturday for the team's match-up with the Orlando Magic.
His return came after he spent last two days in jail. Cunningham was arrested early Thursday morning at his home in Medina, Minn., on suspicion of domestic assault. On Friday, he was officially charged with felony domestic assault by strangulation.
Following the charges, Cunningham posted bail ($40,000) and flew to Orlando Saturday to rejoin the Wolves for the second game in their two-game road trip.
Under the NBA's collective bargaining agreement, players are eligible to play until the full legal process runs its course. Potential discipline from the NBA also will not be passed down until that point.
Cunningham returned to the Wolves' rotation against the Magic in his usual role as one of the first subs off the bench. He posted 12 points and six rebounds while logging 34 minutes for the sorely depleted Wolves in a 100-92 loss.
Cunningham has a court date set for Monday at 1:30 p.m.
The Wolves will head back to Minnesota after Saturday's game. They have two days off before starting a home back-to-back on Tuesday.
