2011 NBA Draft: Minneapolis Workout Participants Changed At Last Minute

The 2011 NBA Draft workouts the Minnesota Timberwolves are hosting this week -- with quite a few other NBA teams expected to be in attendance -- underwent some significant changes to the list the team distributed last week.

Big men Nikola Vucevic and Markieff Morris, both of which could end up being selected right around the Timberwolves 20th pick next month, along with Marshon Brooks, Cory Joseph and Darius Morris have all decided to skip the workout according to Draft Express's Jonathan Givony. Reggie Jackson and Ben Hasbrough have also withdrawn due to injuries that also caused them to skip last week's NBA Draft Combine.

In their place, Givony reports that Jacob Pullen and Andrew Albicy will be in attendance after their private workout for the Timberwolves on Sunday. Among other players that weren't originally scheduled to be in attendance are Scotty Hopson, Dogus Balbay, Diante Garrett, Matt Howard, Malcolm Thomas and Charles Jenkins.

The workouts are scheduled in four separate groups to go through Tuesday with the schedule, courtesy of Draft Express, below.

The first group working out in Minnesota this afternoon: Kalin Lucas, Malcolm Lee, E`Twaun Moore, Scotty Hopson, Jon Leuer and Jamie Skeen

2nd group scheduled for Minnesota workout today: Dogus Balbay, Diante Garrett, Justin Holiday, Jereme Richmond, Matt Howard and Keith Benson

3rd group scheduled for Minnesota workout: Jacob Pullen, Andrew Albicy, Tyler Honeycutt, Chandler Parsons, Malcolm Thomas and JaJuan Johnson

4th group scheduled for Minnesota workout tomorrow Charles Jenkins, Josh Selby, Shelvin Mack, Travis Leslie, Jordan Williams and Michael Dunigan

Anyone the Wolves faithful is interested in picking up in next month's Draft?
