Adelman to miss Bucks game to attend funeral

Minnesota Timberwolves coach Rick Adelman will miss the team’s

game at Milwaukee on Tuesday night to attend funeral services for

his mother-in-law.

The team made the announcement following the Wolves’

season-opening loss to Oklahoma City on Monday night. Assistant

coach Terry Porter will serve as coach for the game against the

Bucks.

Porter has twice been a head coach in the NBA, with the Bucks

from 2003-05 and the Phoenix Suns in the 2008-09 season.

Adelman took over as Timberwolves coach this season after four

years in Houston. The Timberwolves fell to Oklahoma City 104-100 in

his debut.
