The following statement was released today by the Minnesota Timberwolves organization on the passing of Lula Hall, Thaddeus Young's mother:
"The Timberwolves organization is deeply saddened to learn of the passing yesterday of Lula Hall, Thaddeus Young's mother. The Timberwolves send our condolences to the Young and Hall families in this difficult time. Thad will be away from the team with his family for an indefinite period of time, including tonight's game at New Orleans and Saturday night's game at Dallas."
The release does not state any information regarding cause of death.
The Timberwolves will miss Young's presence on the court and in the locker room. He'll, understandably, remain away from the team for an indefinite period of time, and will miss at least the next two games.
Certainly, the late Lula Hall did a wonderful job in raising a mature, well-spoken and charismatic leader.
On behalf of the Canis Hoopus Community, I'd like to say our thoughts and condolences are with Young and Hall family at this time.
