Beyond The Buzzer:
Lou Amundson may be moving on to his 7th team in six years if the Timberwolves decide to keep Chris Johnson and Mickael Gelabale for the remainder of the season.
According to the Star-Tribune:
Wolves forward Lou Amundson said he has been talking with his agent about the very real possibility that he will be traded or waived Friday if the Wolves intend to make room for both Chris Johnson and Mickael Gelabale for the rest of the season.
“It’s a business so you have to kind of think ahead,” Amundson said. “Whatever happens, just continue to do what I’m doing. Everything’s on the table right now. You never like to get traded, but sometimes the situation isn’t what you hope to it to be. It can work out for the best sometimes.”

You know you got some skills with the basketball when you can fake out trained, professional NBA cameramen sitting on the sidelines. That is exactly what happened during Minnesota's recent game versus the Hornets courtesy of, who else, Ricky Rubio. During the third quarter, New Orleans coughed up the ball and Rubio was on the spot to gather the loose ball. Ricky proceeded to...
ON ANOTHER LEVEL
The Timberwolves crushed the Hornets last night 115-86. Ricky Rubio stole the show once again with his passing. This time it was a pass to himself though. A fake behind the back pass to himself to be exact. Pretty awesome skills this guy has. Check out the video below. Check out our Home Page for more stories and follow us on Twitter and Facebook
MINNEAPOLIS Andrei Kirilenko left the Timberwolves game with a right quad strain at the end of the second quarter.
At the time of his exit, Kirilenko had two points on four shot attempts. Mickael Gelabale started the third quarter in his place. Kirilenko's return is questionable.
If Kirilenko does not return, that will reduce the Wolves' bench to six players. Monday marked...
Minnesota's Ricky Rubio's 360 fake behind-the-back pass confused the cameraman.

MINNEAPOLIS A few weeks ago, ignorance might have been bliss. A few weeks ago, there was just Lazar Hayward on a 10-day contract, not two downright serviceable players in Mickael Gelabale and Chris Johnson. There was no Nikola Pekovic, no Alexey Shved, and Ricky Rubio was even further from form.
Under those circumstances, breaking down losses is best left to coaches, best not poked...
Will he or won't he be able to return? That is the question that everyone asks about Brandon Roy, including himself. The Minnesota Timberwolves guard is trying to recover from yet another knee surgery, but it will be an uphill battle. He understands this may be his last shot. If he can recover and play again, great. If he can't, he may be done for good.Roy suffered...
Remember the power outage during the Super Bowl? Yep, the one that forced you to sit there and actually talk to the people you were watching the game with. Or was it the one that enabled you to head back to the table with all of the food to stuff your face some more. It was also the one that forced us to listen to CBS’ failure to investigate anything and let Jim Nantz mumble...
The Minnesota Timberwolves throttled the New Orleans Hornets Saturday and their dominance began during the first quarter with some help from Ricky Rubio. Check out his sweet handles when he goes behind-the-back to avoid a defender and dishes to Derrick Williams for an easy bucket.The post Ricky Rubio Goes Behind-The-Back To Find Derrick Williams (Video) appeared first on The NBA Mistress.
The 35-minute blackout during Super Bowl XLVII was the talk of the town (and by “town”, we mean America) Sunday, so if you’re in a pro sports team’s marketing department, why not go with the latest trend in arena/stadium lighting? Some genius in the Minnesota Timberwolves organization did exactly that, scheduling a blackout between the first and second quarter of their game...
The San Antonio Spurs may be looking to add another piece to this team, even with a full roster at the moment. As reported by San Antonio Express News' Jeff McDonald on Twitter, the Spurs have been interested in a Minnesota Timberwolves player:
Pop says Spurs have had interest in French forward Mickael Gelabale, who is on the second of two 10-days with Minnesota.
MINNEAPOLIS After straining his right quad at the end of the second quarter of Monday's loss to Portland, Timberwolves small forward Andrei Kirilenko is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Spurs. If he were to miss the game, it would be just his fifth missed game this season; he sat for four in late November and early December with back spasms.
In other Kirilenko...
