Timberwolves coach Rick Adelman will miss his second straight game at the helm. Adelman, who missed practice on Monday and Tuesday's victory over Atlanta, will miss tonight's game in Oklahoma City for personal reasons.
That means, for the second straight day, top assistant Terry Porter will be the head man on the Timberwolves' bench.
Meanwhile, the team has not given an update on the status of Kevin Love's broken right hand. He was scheduled to meet with a New York specialist today. It is possible an update will be available later in the day.
Jerry Zgoda missed the entire Kevin Garnett era, but he's back covering the Timberwolves after working the beat for their first four seasons two decades ago. In between, he covered a bit of everything: Gopher men's and women's basketball and NCAA athletics, golf, outdoor recreation, sports media and a little Vikings and Twins.
