Chase Budinger possibly to return tomorrow

Team will make call before game versus Kings

Brian Spurlock-US PRESSWIRE


Budinger practiced five-on-five on Wednesday for the first time since he tore the meniscus in his left knee in January. If his knee responds well on Thursday morning, the versatile forward plans to play that night in Sacramento.

"I just want to be playing again," Budinger said. "This season has been very frustrating for me personally because I haven't experienced anything like this before. Just sitting out all year, it's been tough. It's been mentally draining. Knowing that the summer is coming up, I just want to be out there to play these final games."

"Just the way he moves without the ball. He's used to moving without the ball," Adelman said. "Even today, he made cuts today that the other guys don't do. He's just used to doing that. That will help us a lot. And he certainly can stretch the defense."

Goodness knows the Wolves need him back. He isn't the team's best player, but all things considered, an argument can be made he's the most important one (at least given the current roster makeup)

Not only is the team on pace for a historically bad 3pt shooting season (which Budinger may be too little, too late to change at this point...) but they also play 7 games in the next 10 days.
