MINNEAPOLIS The Minnesota Timberwolves signed center Chris Johnson and forward Mickael Gelabale to 10-day contracts Tuesday. Both players had already been signed to 10-day deals, which expired Monday, on Jan. 19. In order to sign both players, the team was granted an extension of its injury exception. Gelabale was signed into the 16th roster spot created by the exception, rather than Johnson, who was in the spot for the last contract period. Gelabale, a 6-7 forward, has appeared in five games for the Timberwolves, averaging 7.8 points on 55.6 percent shooting. He has also averaged 3.6 rebounds in 21.8 minutes per game. Over that same period, Johnson has averaged 9.2 points on 72.0 percent shooting and 3.8 rebounds in 17.2 minutes per game.Both players' deals will expire after Feb. 7, covering five of the six games on the team's current homestand.
