Wolves forward Chase Budinger, working to come back from Nov. 13 surgery to repair a lateral meniscus tear in his left knee, got some good news today at his checkup with Dr. James Andrews in Florida.

Budinger has been cleared for on-court running and agility drills. He will be re-evaluated again in two to three weeks. 

This appears to be the last step before being cleared to take part in full practice. And Budinger would need a few practices before appearing in a game. Still, Budinger is still aiming for a return to action in March.
