MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Timberwolves have recalled rookie shooting guard Malcolm Lee from their NBA Developmental League affiliate.

The Wolves made the move on Tuesday.

Lee played in three games for the Sioux Falls Skyforce, averaging 9.7 points, 2.7 rebounds, 6.0 assists and 25.3 minutes. He has yet to make his NBA debut, due to surgery he had on Dec. 30 to repair torn meniscus cartilage in his left knee.

After a three-year career at UCLA, Lee was drafted in the second round by the Chicago Bulls and acquired by the Wolves in a trade.

Shooting guard has been a problem position for the Wolves. Starter Wes Johnson has struggled. Martell Webster recently returned from a back injury. Wayne Ellington has been used sporadically.
