With Pekovic Gone, Wolves In Pain

Nikola Pekovic was no longer wearing a walking boot on his injured ankle at Monday’s practice, but Minnesota Timberwolves coach Rick Adelman still says he has “no clue” when his big man might return. One thing is clear: they need him back as soon as possible. Kevin Love was almost unstoppable Saturday night with 43 points and 19 rebounds, but that wasn’t enough to pull off a win.

Derrick Williams Returns To Minnesota

Derrick Williams walked off the bus and strolled into Target Center toward the entrance to the visiting locker room. As he put his hand on the door knob and started to open it, he did a double-take to make sure he was headed to the right place. It’s hard to blame Williams for his tentativeness since he had spent the first two years of his career walking into the home locker room in this building. Williams made his return to Minnesota on Wednesday night, a month and a half after the Timberwolves traded the former No. 2 overall pick to the Sacramento Kings for Luc Mbah a Moute.

Derrick Williams: ‘It’s A Big Month For Me’

Derrick Williams has reported to Minnesota Timberwolves training camp with more than just playing time to earn. The Timberwolves have to make a decision by Oct. 31 whether to exercise the option for 2014-15 on Williams’ contract. The 2011 No. 2 overall draft pick has been inconsistent in his first two seasons in the league and has had trouble finding the right role in Rick Adelman’s rotation.

Love Returns To The Timberwolves With An Edge

Kevin Love showed up for the start of Minnesota Timberwolves training camp eager to put last season behind him, and it’s hard to blame him. Love played in only 18 games last season because of a right hand that was broken twice and a minor knee injury. Some fans turned on him as well, so Love threw himself into a rigorous training regimen this summer and comes back with something to prove. Love showed up with a chiseled frame and ready to reclaim his spot as the league’s best power forward.
