MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Chase Budinger has rejoined his Minnesota Timberwolves teammates for light workouts at practice while he works his surgically repaired left knee back into shape.

Budinger likely remains a month or more from playing in games after offseason surgery to remove a portion of the meniscus in his knee. Budinger was doing some individual shooting drills after practice on Monday. He says he’s not putting a specific timetable on his return, only that he’s taking things “week by week.”

Budinger signed a three-year, $16 million contract in July. But while he was working out in August to prepare for the season, he re-injured the same knee that kept him out for four months last year.

Budinger says he’s making good progress and trying to stay positive.
