MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Timberwolves say coach Rick Adelman will miss Monday night’s game against Houston due to personal reasons.
While Adelman is away from the team, forward Kevin Love says he will be back in the lineup after missing one game with a bruised left quadriceps.
Adelman is expected to be back on the sideline for Wednesday’s game with Denver. Assistant Terry Porter will serve as the acting coach for the game against the Rockets.
Love missed Saturday’s 117-110 loss to Portland after he was kneed in the fourth quarter of Friday’s loss in New Orleans. The All-Star is averaging 31.5 points and 15.5 rebounds in his last six games.
