UPS tracking tells me we'll be back to normal when the new computer arrives on Friday.

Until then...

Per CBS Sports:

A day after their original contracts expired, the Minnesota Timberwolves announced Tuesday they’ve signed Chris Johnson and Mickael Gelabale to 10-day contracts for the second time.

The two were signed to their first 10-day contracts back on Jan. 19. They came to fill voids left by the injured Kevin Love and Nikola Pekovic. Love is out until late March after having surgery on his broken shooting hand, while Pekovic missed time with an injured ankle but was back at practice Monday.

As mentioned before, I've been told the Wolves can move Lou Amundson to free up the roster space to keep CJ and Jelly for the season. But no harm in giving things extra time to play out as long as the 10-day deals are still eligible....it may end up being that a bigger deal can be made with a little more patience. But barring a blockbuster, both these guys will be here for the rest of the year.
