Cast out of rotation
FMinnesota Timberwolves
March 29, 2021
Vanderbilt (coach's decision) didn't leave the bench Monday in the Timberwolves' 112-107 loss to the Nets.
ANALYSIS
After playing just four minutes -- his fewest since Jan. 3 -- in a blowout loss to the Rockets on Saturday, Vanderbilt unsurprisingly dropped out of the rotation entirely in a more competitive game Monday. At this point, Jaden McDaniels looks to have gained head coach Chris Finch's trust as the starting power forward, with the rookie picking up 38 minutes Monday and tallying 13 points (5-11 FG, 3-5 3Pt), seven rebounds, four assists, four blocks and one steal. Vanderbilt could eventually get another look in a backup role over Juancho Hernangomez, who only played seven minutes against Brooklyn and appears to be barely clinging on to a rotation spot.

In 10 appearances between the two teams, he totaled 12 points, nine rebounds, three steals, two assists and one block in 46 minutes. He made his season debut for Denver on Oct. 31 against the Pelicans, finishing with one rebound and one assist in five minutes. Vanderbilt's first points of the season came against the Rockets on Dec. 31, when he posted two points (1-1 FG) in four minutes. The Kentucky product played a season-high eight minutes against the Rockets on Jan. 22. On Feb. 4, Vanderbilt was traded to the Timberwolves. He saw action in two games for Minnesota, while also spending time with the team's G League affiliate, the Iowa Wolves.

2018

Vanderbilt was selected by the Magic with the 41st pick in the NBA Draft, and was traded to the Nuggets shortly thereafter. He missed Summer League play due to a foot injury suffered in college, and his absence continued through exhibition play and the early part of the season. The Nuggets took a conservative approach with Vanderbilt's recovery, but he was able to make his NBA debut Jan. 25 against the Suns. While he saw only four minutes, Vanderbilt still had a point, three rebounds, a steal and an assist. Shortly after that night, Vanderbilt was sent to the G League and saw four games with the Delaware Blue Coats. Over that span, Vanderbilt averaged 7.3 points and 7.8 rebounds before getting the call back to the NBA. He stayed with the team the rest of the season, averaging 1.4 points and 1.3 rebounds in 16 games. Vanderbilt's then-career high came April 2 against Golden State, when he put up 10 points (4-4 FG) and three rebounds. The Nuggets made the playoffs that season, and Vanderbilt saw action in three of the seven games in the opening-round victory over the Spurs. He did not see the court in Round 2 against Portland, the Nuggets where ultimately eliminated in a seven-game series.
