When I learned that Chris Johnson and Mickael Gelabale had been signed to 10-day contracts by the Minnesota Timberwolves on Saturday morning, I suspected that they’d likely see action that same evening against the Houston Rockets.  After all, each player was acquired purely out of necessity — with only seven healthy bodies available, the Wolves needed at least one additional...

Wolves look near and far for help in beating Rockets

MINNEAPOLIS -- The Minnesota Timberwolves went all the way to Spain for some much needed help, leaping through visa hoops and over FIBA hurdles to bring in swingman Mickael Gelabale on a 10-day contract finalized Saturday. They only had to call to Santa Cruz, Calif., and the D League to summon center Chris Johnson. Together, those two newcomers provided all the difference in...

Newly signed duo gives Wolves needed boost

MINNEAPOLIS Chris Johnson packed a bag. One bag. Just 24 hours before his career night Saturday in Minneapolis, Johnson was arriving from California, two days removed from his most recent game with the Santa Cruz Warriors.
