Chase Budinger has successful knee surgery, out indefinitely

Chase Budinger had successful arthroscopic surgery on his left knee, according to the Minnesota Timberwolves. Dr. James Andrews performed a meniscectomy on Budinger to remove the damaged meniscus. Here is the press release from the Wolves:  Share this because Rubio would pass this along:

Is it possible for Ricky Rubio to lead one of the top offenses in the NBA?

On the surface, the question that is the headline of this post may seem preposterous to fans of the Minnesota Timberwolves. Ricky Rubio is one of the best facilitators in the NBA and someone that can turn any offensive weapon into an offensive weapon with an ability to score efficiently. Team him up with Kevin […]

Pipe Dream: Thaddeus Young on the Wolves

Recently, we at A Wolf Among Wolves have provided measured yet optimistic feedback and analysis of the Wolves’ draft night and free agency signings. I expect that kind of reasoned and balanced writing to continue through future signings and trades leading up to the season. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t room for some wild-eyed […]

Your 2013 NBA Draft Minnesota Timberwolves Buzz Post Spectacular

Here we are. It’s 2013 NBA Draft Day and the Wolves possess the 9th, 26th, 52nd, and 59th picks in the draft. UPDATE 5:35pm CT: Minnesota remains in pursuit of the No. 2 pick, eyeing Oladipo too.

Here's a funny trade offer: Cavs offered Thompson, Waiters, and No. 1 for Kevin Love

There are going to be a lot of absurd Kevin Love trade ideas over the next few months because I’ve found that people are usually slow to hop on what’s current. Look at Twitter. Twitter was around for a couple of years before people really latched on to it and accepted it as a reality […]

We’re kicking off our offseason coverage here at A Wolf Among Wolves with a comprehensive roster review of the team from this past season, looking at how each player’s 2012-13 went and what we see for them going forward. One player a day for the next couple weeks, starting with the bench and rolling up […]

Timberwolves 80, Jazz 96: Uneven Flow

I’m not sure if any of you have been in the kind of situation the Wolves found themselves in last night, but I feel like I definitely have. In the fall of 2003, things were not going so well for my band. A little less than a year after we changed the band’s name—a name […]

Timberwolves 101, Thunder 93: Become One Anything, One Time

Something you hear a lot of commentators say is that the NBA is a “make or miss” league. I don’t get this. Or rather, I understand that the game is decided by who scores more points, and thus that the team that wins has—by design—made more shots than the other team. But is that all […]

Bulls 104, Timberwolves 97: a broken clock is wrong almost always

“A broken clock is right twice a day.” This is one of those sayings that is supposed to be clever and profound, but all it does is make me irate when people use it as a crutch for a terrible argument. Sure, a broken clock is correct twice a day, unless you’re in the military […]

Timberwolves 3-point shooting: Infinite Sorrow February Audit

It’s that time again. There was a certain point in which I realized tracking all of the Wolves’ futile 3-point shooting was simply the “rubberneck effect.” You know the rubberneck effect, right? It’s when you’re driving on a freeway and traffic becomes unbearably slow. There’s a sick part of you that wants to know exactly […]
