MINNEAPOLIS The Timberwolves are practicing later than usual Thursday, so no team-specific updates until this afternoon. In the meantime, here are a few tidbits from around the league Thursday morning: Hummel healing: According to a tweet from CBS Sports' Jeff Goodman, Timberwolves' second-round draft pick Robbie Hummel will make his debut in Spain in two to three weeks. Hummel had surgery to repair a torn meniscus in September. Hummel is playing with Obradoiro CAB in Spain this season. Ohio State's William Buford, who was with Hummel and the Timberwolves at summer league in Las Vegas in July, is also on the team. NBA Board of Governors meetings: The NBA Board of Governors is meeting Thursday in New York. Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor was replaced as the chairman of the Board of Governors by Spurs CEO Peter Holt. Taylor has held the position since 2008, and the move makes sense after Taylor announced he is looking for a partner to phase into the role of majority owner of the team in the next few years. In other retirement news, multiple sources are reporting that commissioner David Stern's exit transition is also being discussed in New York. Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski tweeted Thursday afternoon that Stern will step down on Feb. 1, 2014. Deputy commissioner Adam Silver will replace him. Follow Joan Niesen on Twitter.
