The Timberwolves have assigned rookie Shabazz Muhammad to the Iowa Energy of the Developmental league, the club announced today.
This assignment will last at least a week and allow Muhammad to get playing time in game situations. A decision will be made later whether to extend his stay in Des Moines.
Jerry Zgoda's blog at the Star Tribune has more.
This decision may also signal that Chase Budinger is ready to be activated and play, though no announcement as to his availability for tomorrow's game against the Thunder has been made.
