Adelman Returns To Wolves After Missing Last Game

Minnesota Timberwolves coach Rick Adelman has returned to the team for the final game before the NBA All-Star break. Adelman said Wednesday before the Timberwolves hosted Denver that his wife, Mary Kay, had “a little problem” that he had to tend to. Adelman declined to be more specific but said the situation was “fine.” She has suffered from seizures in the past, and Adelman missed 11 games last season to be with her during a particularly difficult stretch. Adelman missed the game Monday night against Houston and practice Tuesday.

Timberwolves Need Their Groove Back, And Fast

The Minnesota Timberwolves would probably have to go 20 and 10, or maybe even 22 and 8 for the rest of the way to make the playoffs. The task is again becoming daunting, and forward Corey Brewer is painfully aware. “We need a win before All-Star break. We got a lot of injuries, man,” Brewer said. “It’s tough when you have injuries.” They are indeed a team riddled with current injuries, and frustrated by another sub-par season. Healthy or not, the Wolves cannot get stops on defense.

Wolves’ Love Sidelined By Bruised Left Quadriceps

All-Star forward Kevin Love missed Minnesota’s game against Portland because of a bruised left quadriceps, and starting point guard Kevin Martin also was out Saturday night because of a broken left thumb that will sideline him indefinitely.
