Wolves G Lee out indefinitely with knee injury
Minnesota Timberwolves guard Malcolm Lee will be out
indefinitely with an injury to his right knee.
The Wolves announced Friday they’re in the process of further
evaluating Lee’s condition to determine the next steps for
treatment on what they called a chondral (KAHN-druhl) injury, or
cartilage damage. Lee was hurt in the second quarter of Wednesday’s
win over Denver; the initial diagnosis was a hyperextension.
Lee is in his second NBA season, a second-round pick from UCLA
by Chicago who was traded to Minnesota on draft day. With Ricky
Rubio and Brandon Roy hurt, Lee has started 12 of 16 games for the
Wolves. He’s averaging 4.9 points, 1.3 assists and 18.1 minutes per
Nine of the 15 players on Minnesota’s roster have missed games
to injury this season.
