MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Timberwolves expect point guard Luke Ridnour to return to the lineup on Wednesday against the Clippers after missing the last five games with a strained left hamstring.

Ridnour says he feels healthy, which means the Timberwolves finally will have a starting point guard at full strength. Jonny Flynn has not played this year with a hip injury, and coach Kurt Rambis says he “is still a ways away” from returning.

Sebastian Telfair is playing through some painful plantar fasciitis, leaving them with Sundiata Gaines, who was signed last week.

Rambis says center Nikola Pekovic will miss at least another week with a sprained left foot. Swingman Martell Webster still is not practicing after back surgery and doesn’t figure to return anytime soon.
