From the Associated Press:
Minnesota Timberwolves leading scorer Al Jefferson will miss another game while tending to a personal matter.
At the morning shootaround, the Timberwolves ruled their starting power forward out of Friday night's matchup with the Los Angeles Lakers. Coach Kurt Rambis says Jefferson has a family member who is in the hospital. Rambis says he's hopeful but unsure that Jefferson will return to practice with the team on Saturday.
