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.

Kevin Love was back at practice today after missing Saturday's loss to Miami because of the death of his grandmother back in Portland.

He declined to talk to media members after today's practice at Target Center, but is headed with the team to Detroit this afternoon for Tuesday's game there against the Pistons.

"He's fine," Wolves coach Rick Adelman said. "He went through the whole practice and seems good."

Also today, the NBA announced overnight that it has fined Corey Brewer $5,000 for what it deemed a flop against Miami and LeBron James Saturday night.

Brewer hit arms with James as both went up for a rebound and Brewer bounced away, his arms flailing from the contact.

He had already been warned once this season, so got fined $5K for this transgression and will be fined $10K if he penalized for another.

Here's the video of it if you haven't seen it, so decide for yourself...
