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.

Budinger set to go tonight at Sacramento

Chase Budinger declared himself ready to play tonight in Sacramento for the first time in four months.

He said his surgically repaired knee felt fine when he awoke Thursday morning in Sacramento after participating in his first contact practice with teammates on Wednesday. 

"It just felt good to go up and down and see how the knee felt, go up and down and see how my wind was," Budinger said. "It was just a good indication where I'm at. I am a little rusty, but hopefully I got all the rust out yesterday."

Neither Budinger nor Rick Adelman knew how much Budinger will play tonight against the Kings.

Adelman called it a "perfect storm" that he is limiting Andrei Kirilenko to six minutes stretches and now will probably do so with Budinger.

"Maybe we'll just keep alternating them back and forth until somebody tells me they're at their limit," Adelman said.
