Is there any timeline on the return of KAT or Lil Mac?

If we could just go on a run stringing together some wins we could get much better playoff positioning.

The west looks like a joke thus far.


It's a Grade 3 sprain. Don't expect him back anytime soon.

It's very serious. Come back too soon and you are almost asking for an Achilles tear.

Towns spoke up on this publicly for the first time recently. Said it was always diagnosed as grade 3. Said the original 4-6 weeks time frame came from an erroneous ESPN headline, which everyone went with. Nobody related to the Wolves ever said that, or has ever set a timeline. All Finch said about it as of last week was things are progressing as expected.

Ant is really maturing. This the most thoughtful and nuanced he's ever been:

Personality and mannerisms similar to Torii Hunter.

That’s what I was talking about earlier too. He takes a thoughtful approach to the game that is rare for a 21 year old.

Nearly every single player on this team can't keep themselves out of foul trouble. Something is wrong. It doesn't help to take that conservative, nonsense approach to pull them when they do get in early foul trouble. Every player needs to learn how to play without fouling so much, but they also need to learn how to play when in foul trouble. How are they going to learn that?

We’ve beaten the five top teams in the west this month

6th place…At the moment. That puts them out of the play in. That’s all I ever realistically hoped to accomplish in the regular season, even with all the Rudy hoopla. And yes the recent games have shown there’s nobody to fear in the west. There are good teams, sure. But not unbeatable. Anyone Is capable of having playoff success. It’s wide open.

fun games to watch lately! Announcers talking about wolves having the 5th toughest schedule for remainder of season made me think of the old saying, Its not who you play but when you play them. Our team is coming together and as has been said, the West is wide open.

One game out of third place if they win tomorrow. Seemed like a charged playoff like atmosphere at Target Center. I hope it’sa repeat tomorrow because I’ll be there, with good seats.

DLo deserves a lot of credit for the recent play as well.

It’s not just a hot streak. He’s been on fire since late November.

I really think it’s his new role. He’s taking so much better quality shots and the heat checks are fewer and farther between.

After 49 games he’s shooting so far ahead of anything he’s ever done.

47/39/87.

Also the team is finally figuring out how to play with Rudy and he’s been a huge difference maker on defense since coming back from injury.

The last couple of games or so he's been a real defensive presence. This is more like the Rudy I was expecting. Protect the rim, get a dozen rebounds, some blocks, 15 or so points just from pick and roll, alley oops and just being opportunistic.

That's all I want. That would be enough. But I want it every night. Mainly the defensive part.

Thought we were dead and buried last night but went on a tear. No Rudy but Naz was amazing. Not sure where we'd be w/o him. Best not trade him at the deadline.

Dare I say Dlo is looking not just serviceable but "very good".

Great win.

I knew this one would be a loss. They’ve been playing well, beating good teams, conference teams, important games. So a game like this against a lesser eastern team had trap written all over it. They overlook it and play down to the competition.

Ugliest game of the year.

Definitely not as bad as the losses to Detroit and Houston.

Magic are a fun, young team. They have crazy length and shooting ability in the front court and their guards are non-stop defenders. And they have a really deep bench.

They started the year rough, but are over .500 since the end of November.
