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.

Cunningham arrested, Wolves waive AJ Price

Busy news morning on this Thursday for the Wolves...

Forward Dante Cunningham was arrested shortly after 6 a.m. by police in Medina on suspicion of domestic assault. He is not traveling with team on its afternoon flight to Miami today.

Our news story is here.

The team waived little-used veteran point guard A.J. Price this morning, a decision that was made, I'm told, last night before the Cunningham arrest but which clears the way to sign a player to Price's now vacant roster spot for the season's remaining eight games.

It's likely, depending how the Cunningham situation plays out, that player will be a power forward or combo forward type.

Just as FYI: Cunningham's contract -- a $2.2 million salary -- expires after this season and he will be an unrestricted free agent in July. His return next season was a question before Thursday morning's arrest.

Price underwent an appendectomy March 9 and recently was cleared to play again but hadn't made it off the inactive list on game nights.
