It will be not just one surgery but two next week for Timberwolves guard Malcolm Lee. Lee hasn't played since Dec. 12, when he hurt his right knee, and next week he'll have surgery to repair cartilage in that knee as well as another surgery on his right hip.
Lee's knee surgery will take place Monday, his hip surgery Wednesday. Dr. Jonathan Glashow at Midtown Surgical Center in New York will perform the knee surgery, and Dr. Bryan Kelly at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York will perform the hip surgery. He will be out for the rest of the season.
Lee hurt his right knee against Denver on Dec. 12. The team initially believed it was hyperextended before discovering the cartilage damage later in the month. Lee also had surgery on the torn meniscus in his left knee a year ago, which he injured during training camp last season.
In 16 games this season, Lee started 12 after Brandon Roy's injury sidelined him. He averaged 4.9 points and 3.3 rebounds per game, and he was much more of a presence at the defensive end of the court than on offense.

On Monday, Jan. 14, Lee will undergo a right knee cartilage repair. The surgery will be performed by Dr. Jonathan Glashow at Midtown Surgical Center in New York. On Wednesday, Jan. 16, Lee will undergo surgery on his right hip. The surgery will be performed by Dr. Bryan Kelly at...
NEW ORLEANS -- The Timberwolves were down to nine healthy players at Friday's shootaround; Lazar Hayward is now ill and questionable for the game in New Orleans, and J.J. Barea remains in Dallas, where he went to see a doctor about his back problems. The soonest he will join the team is for its Sunday game in San Antonio.
Rick Adelman also remains away from the team with his...
The Minnesota Timberwolves say coach Rick Adelman will remain away from the team while he tends to his wife, who has been in the hospital.
The Timberwolves made the announcement Thursday, one day after Adelman missed his second straight game. They say that his status remains day-to-day and he will return to coaching “as soon as he is able.”
Adelman’s wife, Mary Kay, was hospitalized...
Rick Adelman is not expected to rejoin the Minnesota Timberwolves in San Antonio on Sunday or Dallas on Monday, according to Terry Porter, who's been acting as head coach in Adelman's absence. Adelman has been with his wife, Mary Kay, while she's been hospitalized, and he hasn't coached the team since Jan. 5.
With that announcement, the coach will not be with the...
Two-and-a-half years later, Gay is readily available — mostly because the Grizzlies, barring a trade of either him or another high-priced player, will be in luxury tax purgatory.
So, this is Kahn’s chance to land a player he has long coveted. But according to a league source, he turned down a trade proposal from Memphis for Gay recently.
In fact, the source insists Kahn said...
NEW ORLEANS It was just a joke, really.
Terry Porter wasn't serious when he pondered the notion of the player-coach before Friday's loss in New Orleans. He compared himself to Bill Russell, after all, the guy who won two championships as a player-coach in Boston in 1968 and 1969. Terry Porter is no Bill Russell, not as this stand-in coach and certainly not in his playing...
SAN ANTONIO - The Minnesota Timberwolves fought admirably, as they have all season despite many injuries, but a road game against the home-tough Spurs was too tall an order, as the Timberwolves fell 106-88 Sunday at the AT&T Center. Tony Parker scored 20 points, and Gary Neal had 10 of his 15 points in the fourth quarter, when he ignited a spurt for the Spurs (29-11). The...
