Ronny Turiaf Injury Update

Minneapolis/St. Paul – The Minnesota Timberwolves today announced that Ronny Turiaf underwent a MRI (Magnetic Resonance Image) this morning at TRIA Orthopedics in Bloomington, Minn. that revealed a radial head fracture of the right elbow. Turiaf will be re-evaluated later this week to determine an approximate time table for a return to the court.

Turiaf suffered the injury at the 10:17 mark of the second quarter during last night's 100-81 Wolves win over Oklahoma City.

This is obviously disappointing, as Turiaf was providing some nice backup center minutes.  Gorgui Dieng didn't exactly look ready for a bigger role last night, but Gorgui, you're up.

We'll obviously update as we hear more.
