    Budinger has Torn Meniscus, out indefinetely

    MINNEAPOLIS -- Minnesota Timberwolves swingman Chase Budinger will be out indefinitely with a torn meniscus in his left knee.

    The Timberwolves made the announcement Sunday night, one day after Budinger was injured in a game against the Chicago Bulls.

    The Wolves say he will need surgery, which will be scheduled later this week. No timetable for his return will be set until afterward but the typical recovery time for such an injury is around two months, unless surgery reveals more damage.

    Budinger was averaging 11.8 points and 3.5 rebounds this season.

    It's yet another significant injury for Minnesota. All-Star forward Kevin Love will miss the first month of the season with a broken right hand and guard Ricky Rubio won't return from a torn left ACL until at least December.

    The Wolves are also playing without J.J. Barea (foot sprain) and Brandon Roy (sore right knee).
    Another tough injury.

    WTF. We have ****** *** basketball for 5+ years then when we finally put together a good team everyone gets hurt.

    I'm starting to believe there are basketball gods after all.

    Wow.

    Minnesota has crossed the threshold from bad luck to tragedy.

    Serious sympathies. NO team deserves this much pain.

    Guess there's always next year...

    I would not want to play for Addelman. This goes back to his Rockets days. He is CURSED.

    Budinger was playing very well, another tough hit for the T'Wolves but they should be getting Love back fairly soon so hopefully they can stay afloat until then.

    Even his Kings days. C-Webb tore his meniscus in a tight playoff battle against the Mavs who ended up advancing to the WCF and then he got microfacture surgery.

    Then when the Kings were 1st in the west without Webber, he comes back and ruins the teams chemistry and end up losing in the second round.

    Not to mention the 2002 WCF...
