Wolves Updates 12/31

From Britt Robson/On The Ball: Foye gets the next report on his knee January 7. If more delays are announced, it is time to stop this cat and mouse and engage in a full-blown press conference that lays out all options in a realistic manner. Because it is beginning to look like Foye will never […]

Wittman Should Take Note of Tubby’s Team

Last week, I talked about being thankful for the Vikings’ turnaround, since it gave us something to cheer about in Minnesota.  Well, that sure went downhill fast…after the Vikings collapsed against the Redskins, it looks like yet another Minnesota team will be left out of the playoffs.  And if the Vikes do indeed miss the […]

Wolves Updates 12/30

Gary Washburn/Seattle P-I on the team during last night’s loss to Seattle: The Timberwolves look unmotivated and unorganized. They have a great deal of young talent but it seems that no one knows when they are going to play and when they do, they are lethargic. Al Jefferson, who usually eats up the Sonics, has […]

Wolves 90, Sonics 109

From Rick Alonzo/Pioneer Press: The Timberwolves lost to Seattle despite the absence of Sonics rookie forward Kevin Durant, who sat out the final three quarters because of a sprained left index finger.   The Wolves never mounted much of a challenge in the second half and suffered a 109-90 setback at KeyArena.     Wolves […]

Wolves Updates 12/29

From Rick Alonzo/Pioneer Press: Wolves point guard Randy Foye will be re-examined Jan. 7 to determine how his left knee injury is progressing, coach Randy Wittman said. The Wolves are hoping that he will be cleared to resume all basketball activities if the stress reaction in his kneecap has healed. Foye likely will need at […]

Wolves 98, Trail Blazers 109

From Jerry Zgoda/Star Tribune: The Blazers delivered their latest victory with a pair of 9-0 runs — one that closed the first half, the other that opened the fourth quarter — that made the Wolves’ own 13-5 run that began the second half and Gerald Green’s highlight-reel, windmill dunk in the second quarter inconsequential.   […]

The Mailbag (12.27.07)

  We might as well jump right into this, it’s the long awaited First TWolvesblog Open Mailbag.  (Ok, so maybe it wasn’t "long awaited"… heck, perhaps it wasn’t even "awaited.")  Regardless, I got some quality questions from eight people, covering a very large and diverse range of topics from: meeting players after games, potential massive […]

Wolves Updates 12/28 Part 2

From Geoffrey C. Arnold/The Oregonian: Telfair has found a home in Minnesota after struggling for three seasons in the NBA. The former lottery pick of the Trail Blazers starts at point guard for the Timberwolves and is playing the best basketball of his career.   "I’m more experienced; even when I wasn’t playing well, I […]

Wolves Updates 12/28

From Rick Alonzo/Pioneer Press: Wolves forward Al Jefferson had 10 offensive rebounds Wednesday night during a 105-101 loss at Golden State. That tied for the second-most offensive rebounds in a game in team history. Kevin Garnett and Felton Spencer each had a game with 11. Jefferson began Thursday ranked second in the NBA in average […]

Wolves 101, Warriors 105

From Rick Alonzo/Pioneer Press: Minnesota eventually fought back and got within two points late in the fourth quarter. If not for the season-high 23 turnovers, they might have won.   But ultimately the Wolves couldn’t execute against the Warriors’ defense and couldn’t make enough stops on the other end. By the time Minnesota made a […]

Wolves Updates 12/26

Jerry Zgoda/Star Tribune on tonight’s game at Golden State: Reserves Gerald Green and Michael Doleac missed Wolves practice Monday because of the flu but traveled with the team and are considered game-time decisions.     Click here for the forum’s game thread. Click here for a preview of the game.      From Janny Hu/San […]

Wolves Updates 12/25

From Jerry Zgoda/Star Tribune: That might take some doing for a Wolves team that returned Marko Jaric and Rashad McCants from sick leave for practice Monday but lost Gerald Green and Michael Doleac to a flu bug from which forward Craig Smith still is recovering. Veteran Greg Buckner also was back at practice after missing […]

Kevin Garnett: All I Wanted

Note: This article appears at the Minnesota Timberwolves Den at DeROK.Net [image] Kevin Garnett is back! [image2] I had been here before. Though my memory had been clouded by years of disappointment, apathy, and broken dreams, I could still faintly remember standing in this place. The electric atmosphere and pulsing energy seemed so familiar. And […]

Wolves Updates 12/24

From Mitch Lawrence/NY Daily News: Minnesota VP Kevin McHale apparently isn’t adjusting very well to the post-Garnett era. After the Timberwolves gave up 111 points in a loss to Golden State last week, McHale stormed into his locker room and tore into the players, something not a lot of executives would do. Said one player, […]
