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.

The Warriors got big, bad news today, just hours before they play the Wolves tonight at Oracle Arena.

With a playoff series with the L.A. Clippers or Oklahoma City looming, the Warriors announced starting center Andrew Bogut is out indefinitely after he fractured a rib in Sunday's overtime loss at Portland.

"We're a no-excuse team," Warriors coach Mark Jackson said. "It hurts, but we move forward."

Starting forward Andre Iguodala also isn't playing for Golden State, his knee is being rested for the playoffs that start this weekend.

Wolves center Ronny Turiaf is not expected to play tonight, either, after he played just four minutes Sunday in Sacramento because of that same right knee that caused him to miss 19 consecutive games in February and April.
