Malcolm Lee is back with the Minnesota Timberwolves. Again.

The Wolves recalled the rookie guard on Friday from the NBA Developmental League's Sioux Falls Skyforce, with whom Lee averaged 10.5 points, 5.3 rebounds and 5.8 assists in his second stint this season.

Lee last was recalled by the Wolves on Feb. 14 but still hasn't played in a regular-season NBA game since undergoing surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee on Dec. 30.

It's unclear when Lee might make his debut, although he was eligible for Friday's game against the Los Angeles Lakers. Per NBA rules, first- and second-year players can be assigned to the D-league three times in a season, meaning Lee has one more stint left if needed.
