Minnesota Timberwolves backup forward Dante Cunningham turned himself into Medina police on Sunday after violating an order for protection against the woman he was charged with strangling last week, per the Pioneer Press' Andy Greder.

Cunningham, 26, was jailed for the second time in four days on Sunday after he was also jailed Thursday and ultimately charged with felony domestic assault. According to Greder, the Medina police said Cunningham's messages were "direct and rose to a threatening level." 

Last week, Cunningham posted bail and was released from his first arrest in time to start for the Timberwolves in Saturday's loss at the Orlando Magic. The Timberwolves were without both Kevin Love and Nikola Pekovic due to injury.

The Timberwolves released a statement regarding Cunningham on Sunday. 

"The situation with Dante Cunningham is very fluid and we continue to monitor all available information. We reiterate that the Minnesota Timberwolves do not condone the behavior described in the accusations. We continue to wait for the legal process to run its course and will have further comment when appropriate."
