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.

Wolves guard Chase Budinger -- out all season so far because of that second knee surgery in 11 months -- has been cleared to participate in contact practices, starting tomorrow, the team announced today.

Still uncertain is how much practice he will need before he is cleared to play in a game.

You can be sure the Wolves will be conservative with him after he needed that second surgery to resolve his torn meniscus issue.

The Timberwolves are at home tonight against the Trail Blazers.
