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.

Lee back with Wolves

Malcolm Lee was recalled by the Wolves this morning from the Sioux Falls Skyforce of the NBA Development League.

Lee averaged 9.7 points and six assists in three games for the Skyforce.  The 6-5 rookie guard from UCLA was the Bulls' second-round pick last summer and came to Minnesota in a draft-day trade.  He had a torn meniscus in his left knee repaired shortly after training camp opened and was basically rehabbing in the D-League.

NBA teams can assign first or second-year players to the D-League a maximum of three times per season.

The Wolves practice this afternoon.
