Want to play point guard for the Wolves?

Wolves injuries leaving point guard ranks depleted. Posted by Matt Moore

The Wolves were criticized a year ago for going hog-wild on point guards. They drafted Jonny Flynn, Ricky Rubio, and Wayne Ellington (a two-guard but we'll count it), and signed Ramon Sessions. Now they're out of point guards. These are the Timberwolves.

Flynn's on the shelf with a hip injury for two more weeks , Ricky Rubio is muching on tapas on a Spanish beach somewhere, Sessions has been traded to Cleveland and newly acquired Luke Ridnour is now out with an injury as well . Which means your point guard fleet for the Minnesota Timberwolves? Ellington, Sebastian Telfair, and Maurice Ager.

How could this possibly go wrong? And to think a year ago they were flooded with point guards.

The good news is that the triangle doesn't really require a prolific point guard. They basically set the offense and hang out to hit threes (hence why Derek Fisher has had such a long and prolific career). Now, getting past the question of why they set up a triangle offense and then drafted Ricky Rubio, it means that this may not be that big of a hit for the Wolves.

Except for that whole, being terrible at basketball thing.
