MINNEAPOLIS -- Reinforcements are coming. That's been a constant reminder around the Timberwolves locker room since early on this season. It's served as a motivating factor for guys who otherwise wouldn't be playing as much. At times, coach and president of basketball operations Flip Saunders contends, it's been a cause for passivity -- a waiting game while Minnesota's three missing...

Wiggins a bright spot in Wolves' narrow loss to Suns

MINNEAPOLIS -- Andrew Wiggins' inaugural signature moment will have to wait. But the fact the Timberwolves rookie took the final shot in Wednesday night's 113-111 loss to Phoenix, regardless of the result, paints a fitting picture of where Wiggins stands in the Minnesota pecking order -- and, furthermore, within the next generation of NBA stardom.

Preview: Timberwolves vs. Suns

The Minnesota Timberwolves are just as sick about not having won in nearly a month as they've become due to a team-wide bug that is making its way throughout the locker room. The only remedy now is a victory, but they don't even know who will be healthy enough to take the court Wednesday night. A win likely won't come easy no matter who is on the floor for Timberwolves as they host...

Veteran Budinger still trying to find role with Wolves

MINNEAPOLIS -- It's a fact only the most forthcoming of them will fully admit, but the Timberwolves' roster isn't the optimal setting for veterans right now. They may indeed relish the role of nurturing the young guys, but basketball players don't get to the NBA by merely mentoring. They're competitors. They want to win.
