Depending on how Jonny Flynn plays this weekend with the Sioux Falls Skyforce in the NBA Development League, Rambis said Flynn could make his season debut during the Wolves' five-game West Coast trip next week.
Flynn will play with the Skyforce in Sioux Falls on Friday and Saturday against the Tulsa 66ers, then rejoin the Wolves for Monday's practice. The Wolves' road trip begins Tuesday night at Golden State.
Cleared to play by doctors on Tuesday, Timberwolves swingman Martell Webster remained on the inactive list for Wednesday's game against Oklahoma City, but he hopes to make his season -- and team -- debut Friday against Detroit at Target Center.
"I'm not going to get too far ahead of myself," said Webster, who hasn't played since back surgery in late October. "I don't want to rush into it too fast."
Wolves coach Kurt Rambis said he wants Webster to have one more hard practice before playing an unspecified amount of limited minutes in an NBA game.
