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.

Turiaf put on active list for tonight at Philadelphia

Posted by: Jerry Zgoda under Wolves injury report, Wolves pre-game, Wolves news Updated: January 6, 2014 - 5:40 PM

Wolves reserve center Ronny Turiaf has been active list and D-League bound Shabazz Muhammad is inactive for tonight's game at Philadelphia.

That means he's available to play while teammate Chase Budinger remains on the inactive list for at least another game.

How much or how well Turiaf plays are different matters.

He hasn't played since injuring his elbow in the season's second game, Nov. 1 against Oklahoma City.

"Just go out there and do my thing," Turiaf said before the game. "All the extra work I've put in the last couple weeks...I'm looking forward to it."

Turiaf said he doesn't know if he is being put on a minutes limit, but you can be sure the Wolves coaches and medical staff watch his conditioning and stamina closely.

"We'll shall see," Turiaf said about his conditioning. "All I can tell you is I felt pretty good in practice. If Coach asks me to play, I'll go play. If he asks me to go short minutes, I'll go short minutes. I just want to help this team in any way possible. We shall see what Coach has planned for me."

Budinger said he's still waiiting for clearance based on how he handles practices. Rick Adelman said late last week that both players were very close to returning, so we'll see what Wednesday's game against Phoenix brings.

Still waiting to hear on Luc Mbah a Moute's availability. He rested his strained groin before tonight's game and was swearing profusely when he came in from warmups, but we'll see if he's good enough to play after missing Saturday's loss to Oklahoma City.

Sixers guard Tony Wroten (flu, migraine headache) won't play but Michael Carter-Williams, who didn't play when these two teams played at Target Center last month, will.

can wait ti get back and  see if shes safe and ready to go and not frozen, siberian temperature in minneapoolis definitley something different,
