Ronny Turiaf suffers elbow fracture, out indefinitely
Timberwolves forward will be re-examined in a week.
#Twolves announce Ronny Turiaf underwent a MRI this morning at TRIA Orthopedics that revealed a radial head fracture of the right elbow.— Timberwolves PR (@Twolves_PR) November 2, 2013
He broke his elbow, which is really painful and takes a long time to come back from. Timberwolves PR tweeted that he'll be re-examined next week to establish a timeline but don't expect him for a while.
The Wolves were already short on frontcourt depth, so this doesn't help matters, obviously. It'll mean more time for rookie Gorgei Dieng and smaller lineups overall. Turiaf signed with the Wolves this summer as a free agent.
