Chase Budinger injured

The Minnesota Timberwolves today announced that forward Chase Budinger suffered a lateral meniscus tear of his left knee during yesterday’s game at Chicago. Budinger suffered the injury at the 6:00 mark of the fourth quarter in Minnesota’s 87-80 loss to the Bulls. Surgery will be scheduled later this week. A timetable for his return will be determined after the surgery.

Budinger is averaging 11.8 points and 3.5 rebounds in six games for the Wolves this season. He was acquired by Minnesota in a trade with Houston on June 26, 2012.

Well, this sucks.

For what it’s worth, Tyrus Thomas had this injury late January of 2011 and was out from January 20th until March 11th. That doesn’t mean a whole lot with Chase but it does give us a decent idea of how long he could be out. The tricky part is if the surgeon will have to cut away torn meniscus or try to repair it. Trying to repair it will probably mean he’s out closer to two months than six weeks. Either way, we’re not seeing Chase again until the new year. That is if the Mayans don’t eliminate the Wolves in December

Yea... How quickly he returns

Yea... How quickly he returns depends on the severity of the tear. IF it's a quick snip and stitch, he could return in 4-6 weeks.

They can't afford another

They can't afford another injury. And since they are going to have to play AK47 40 minutes a game, they are going to be tempting fate.

Too bad, because they had a legit playoff team that if healthy would have won 50 games. Still a chance of that if AK47 can stay on the court until Love gets back. Once Love is back, they will be fine, but they need to win at least 40% of their games in this period to not be too far behind.
