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.

Martin out at Sioux Falls, could be out longer

The Wolves will play on tonight in Sioux Falls, S.D., against the Bucks without starting shooting guard Kevin Martin, who played just six minutes last night in Toronto because of a sore Achilles.

Martin calls himself day to day, but I'll bet you he doesn't play Saturday against the Raptors in a rematch at Target Center, either.

The Wolves don't play for another eight days after Saturday, so that would give him a good 10 days to rest and heal his body.

He said in Toronto his Achilles flared up on Monday, but he appeared not to be feeling well after training camp practices in Mankato last week. He seemed awful sore and was moving kinda slow and spoke about aging.

"I need to get healthy," he said before tonight's game. "I need to get myself right."

Without him, expect Alexey Shved to start at shooting guard but Rick Adelman said he'll look at lots of guys, including Lorenzo Brown, Othyus Jeffers and maybe even Shabazz Muhammad there.

The Bucks are playing without Ekpe Udoh, Carlos Delfine, Ersan Ilyasova and possibly Zaza Pachulia tonight.
