Just a quick update to say we really don't have an update yet on Chase Budinger.
The latest word I got was that the Wolves were still waiting on a time for an MRI on Budinger, which should get done this afternoon. Budinger twisted his left knee with six minutes left in Saturday's loss in Chicago when his foot got stuck and his left knee got tangled and twisted in a scrum under the Wolves' basket.
We are also expecting an update on whether J.J. Barea (mid--foot sprain) will be going to Dallas to join the team. It's likely that an update on Brandon Roy's right knee soreness won't come until shootaround Monday morning.
I'll update the blog with any news as the day progresses. Until then, enjoy your rather cold Sunday.
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.
Those who knew Timberwolves star Jimmy Butler long ago are having their allegiances tested now that the pride of Tomball, Tex., is playing the Houston Rockets tonight in Game 2 of their NBA playoff series.
