Report: Wolves' Chase Budinger out three months with meniscus tear
While fighting for a loose ball, Minnesota's Chase Budinger tore the lateral meniscus in his knee and will miss three months after having surgery.
If this keeps up, Adrian Peterson might be getting a 10-day contract from the Timberwolves.
Budinger, 24, injured the knee while battling for a loose ball Saturday against the Pacers.
Without Budinger, the Wolves will turn to Roy for more minutes, assuming he's ready for them. If not, then expect Alexey Shved to get minutes at shooting guard with reserve Malcolm Lee likely seeing time as well.
There's also the option the Wolves could sign free agent Mickael Pietrus.
Budinger is averaging 11.8 points and 3.5 rebounds in six games for the Wolves this season. He's set to be a free agent next summer.
