Wolves Updates 1/3

"Well, right now, there’s no question that Brandon Roy has had a better
year and a half, but I wouldn’t gauge anybody’s career on a year and a
half," Wolves vice president of basketball operations Kevin McHale said.
"The funny thing is that the reason that we were really a little bit
hesitant on Brandon was the health issue. He had a couple surgeries on
his knees and we were a little bit concerned about his health. The
doctors’ reports weren’t all that great on him. All of a sudden, now,
look at him: He’s playing healthy right now and Randy Foye, who’s never
had any health problems, is hurt…
 
 
 
Foye, who suffered a stress fracture in his left
kneecap during training camp, is scheduled to have another evaluation
Monday, and preliminary reports are positive.
 
"Hopefully, he’ll be cleared to go. He has no pain or anything," Wittman said. 
 
 
 
Patrick Reusse/Star Tribune on last night’s game against Portland:
It was mentioned to Przybilla that the ticket-holders were so
indifferent that they didn’t even bother to boo him. That was a
tradition during earlier visits to Target Center after the big man’s
early departure from the Gophers.
 
"I even heard a few cheers when my name was announced," he said. "What’s going on?"
 
 
 
The Timberwolves, who have 15 players with guaranteed contracts, are trying to make a trade but don’t have any deals pending.
 
 
 
Wittman and the front office are evaluating who can and can’t play
–more specifically, who can and can’t play at crunch time. And it’s
clear to Wittman that he’s not getting a lot of good play from his
guards.
 
Also from Youngblood:
Center Theo Ratliff, who had surgery on his right knee Dec. 18, is rehabbing the knee in the same Birmingham, Ala., clinic where he had the surgery. The plan is for Ratliff to stay there for the rest of this week, then come back to Minnesota for another evaluation.
