Wolves Updates 11/24

 

 

Wolves hosts the Spurs, Webster not close to full contact practices and more

 

From Ray Richardson/Pioneer Press:

Rambis said he is waiting for Flynn to determine when he's ready to play before deciding on Flynn's assignment to the NBA Development League. Flynn said he's willing to play "a couple of games" in the minor league to help him get ready for his Wolves debut.

Briefly: Love's 10 double-doubles (points-rebounds) rank second in the NBA to Los Angeles Lakers center Pau Gasol, who has 11. Love and Gasol (22.8 points, 12.1 rebounds) are the only players in the league with 10 or more double-doubles.

# Backup center Nikola Pekovic, out with a sprained left ankle since Nov. 12, did light shooting and jogging but did not participate in practice. Rambis had no update on Pekovic's possible return.

 

From Jerry Zgoda/Star Tribune:

-Flynn participated fully in Tuesday's practice, but Rambis said the Wolves haven't yet looked into possible D League dates if that's where Flynn begins his playing comeback.

"We'll do that when he feels he's ready to go play," Rambis said. "No sense looking at it now."

-Webster stayed late after practice Tuesday and made jump shot after jump shot, but isn't yet close to participating in full contact practices. He underwent back surgery Oct. 25.

From Ray Richardson/Pioneer Press:

Beasley saved the Wolves in the nick of time with a game-winning shot last week against the Los Angeles Clippers, and the way coach Kurt Rambis is drawing up plays for Beasley in late-game situations, there likely will be more opportunities for him to save the day.

"The coach is showing more confidence in me in close games, and I appreciate that," Beasley said.

No matter what character roles Love and Beasley ultimately settle on, one thing is clear about the two third-year forwards: Five weeks into the NBA season, they have revived interest in the Wolves. The Wolves (4-11), who play San Antonio tonight at Target Center, have been the lead story on ESPN's "SportsCenter" and landed on the front page of sports websites around the country.
