“It doesn’t bother me,” Budinger said before Wednesday’s victory, before making his fourth consecutive start in place of injured Kevin Martin. “It doesn’t affect me at all. I’m still going to go about my business the same way.”

Said Barea: “If it happens, it happens. But it’s not my job to worry about it. I can’t pay attention to that.”

Turiaf hurt

Already without Martin and starting center Nikola Pekovic, the Wolves might have seen their injury problems get worse Wednesday.

Center Ronny Turiaf limped off the court with 7 minutes, 15 seconds left in the game after hurting his right knee. Turiaf said the leg buckled upon impact after he tried to block a shot.

Turiaf said the knee felt “all right. There is a little bit of pain.”

Limping noticeably after the game, he left the locker room after being fitted by a brace.

Working vacation

While some Wolves players used the All-Star break to go someplace warm and sit in the sun, guard Ricky Rubio went to Los Angeles, where he worked on his shot with a shooting coach.

To Adelman, that’s fine.

But …

“They’re free to do whatever during the break,” he said. “The only thing I think is, if you’re going to work with somebody or work on something, just do it. Everybody in the world doesn’t have to know about it. Really. Seriously. If someone wants to improve on something, it’s their right to do whatever they want to do. But it just adds more questions. It did tonight.”
