December 4, 2017 — 4:37pm
Lindsay Whalen will be a part of eight Timberwolves broadcasts on Fox Sports North this season. Her stint will start Wednesday in Los Angeles, when the Wolves take on the Clippers. She will be on at 9 p.m. as part of the Wolves Live program, then will join the broadcast team of Dave Benz and Jim Petersen courtside for the start of the game.
The Lynx All-Star Guard will also join as an analyst for games on Dec. 12, Jan. 1, Jan. 14, Feb. 7, Feb. 23, March 2 and April 5.
Whaler is a five-time WNBA All-Star who has helped the Lynx to four league championships and has won two Olympic gold medals.
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.
Those who knew Timberwolves star Jimmy Butler long ago are having their allegiances tested now that the pride of Tomball, Tex., is playing the Houston Rockets tonight in Game 2 of their NBA playoff series.
