In one alleged fit of rage, Dante Cunningham's future with the Timberwolves has become tensely tenuous.

The reserve power forward was back with the team Saturday, two days after his arrest for domestic assault. He actually started in place of Kevin Love, who was a late scratch due to back spasms, and scored 12 points in 34:55 of action.

But Saturday's loss at Orlando and the Timberwolves' final six outings could be Cunningham's last in Minnesota.

The 6-foot-8, 221-pound fifth-year veteran has a court appearance set for Monday at 1:30 p.m. According to a criminal complaint obtained by the Minneapolis Star Tribune, a woman who identifies herself as Cunningham's girlfriend and says they've been living together for the past eight months called police after he attempted to strangle her.

If found guilty of felony domestic assault by strangulation, Cunningham faces up to three years in prison and/or a $5,000 fine.

The woman said the two have been having relationship problems, and an argument early Thursday morning caused Cunningham to leave their Medina residence. She claims to have locked the door behind him, but Cunningham returned shortly after, kicked the door in, grabbed her by the neck and slammed her into the wall. The woman alleges she was strangled for 15-20 seconds before Cunningham dropped her and left the residence once again.
