Minnesota Timberwolves point guard Jonny Flynn is reportedly three weeks away from returning to the court after summer hip surgery.jonny-flynn Posted by Ben Golliver On Oct. 26th, we noted a report that stated Minnesota Timberwolves point guard Jonny Flynn was 4-6 weeks away from returning to the court after a summery surgery on his hip. That timeline seems to be progressing on schedule, as reports today that Flynn is three weeks out from a return.
Jonny Flynn is making progress after undergoing surgery for a torn labral in his left hip. The point guard is participating in full-contact practices and the team is shooting for him to return in three weeks, according to sources. 
Flynn's surgery required extensive rehab and he's been gradually increasing his physical activity in recent weeks. The second-year player is fortunate he needed just one surgery because occasionally his ailment affects both hips and requires two separate surgeries and rehabilitation periods, similar to what Milwaukee Bucks' rookie Darington Hobson is currently going through.
In Flynn's absence, the Timberwolves have been just horrible. Wolves forward Michael Beasley called his team "the worst in the NBA," forward Kevin Love has been mixing it up with coach Kurt Rambis, and wing Martell Webster went under the knife for a minor back surgery. The Timberwolves are currently in last place in the Northwest Division with a record of 1-4. They got absolutely annihilated by the Miami Heat and Orlando Magic on Tuesday and Wednesday, losing the two games by a combined 74 points. They are set to face the undefeated (5-0) Atlanta Hawks on Friday. While Flynn isn't likely to turn Minnesota's season around single-handedly, the Timberwolves need all the help they can get.
