Ronny's injury is the rear view mirrow, so I am starting a new thread for Ronny.

TWolves 112 Jazz 97

Ronny played 13:30. He had 2 points, 1 rebound, 3 fouls. I think his game was better than his stat line indicates. He had several times when he broke up plays and landed on his butt in the second or third rows.

Ronny had a fantastic game.

He played 32:23. He had 14 points, 7 rebounds, 3 fouls, 1 TO, 3 blocks. I got to see part of the last quarter after we got back from a doctor's appt in Spokane, and he looked really good. I think he got so many minutes because Pekovic (sp.) was injured after 6 minutes.

Ronny started and played 26:13. He had 4 points, 8 rebounds, 1 assist, 4 fouls, 1 TO.

Good game! Pekovic was listed as inactive, so I expect Ronny to get more minutes.

Edited to add Pekovic's injury details:


Pekovic had an MRI test Tuesday on his right ankle that revealed bursitis, which is inflammation of the fluid-filled pad that cushions the joint. The Timberwolves announced the 6-foot-11, 285-pound Pekovic will be kept off the court for seven to 10 days before being re-evaluated.

Pekovic was hurt in the first quarter Monday at Chicago.

The Wolves have seven games in the next 10 days. They've won four of their last five, but they haven't been above .500 since Nov. 25.

The 28-year-old Pekovic is averaging career highs in points, rebounds and minutes per game. After missing 39 games over the past three seasons with various injuries, he was finally healthy. Ronny Turiaf will start in his place.

Wednesday night, Minnesota’s Ronny Turiaf injured his knee when he went up for a rebound and came down awkwardly. He left the game and did not return.

Now comes the really bad news — he suffered a bone bruise in his knee and will be out about three weeks, something Flip Saunders said and was tweeted by Andy Greder of the Pioneer Press.

Turiaf (knee) is expected to do some work next week to test out the knee, according to coach Rick Adelman, the T-Wolves' official site reports. (about 5 days ago)

Turiaf's Return Much-Needed As Wolves Beat Grizzlies







Ronny Turiaf’s return on Wednesday night was admittedly a tad surprising across the board. Turiaf, who missed 19 straight games with a bruised right knee, hadn’t been able to practice with the Wolves in 5-on-5 situations prior to his return, and he did a portion of his recovery work after practice.

Some of his teammates weren’t aware he was available until right before game time.

“I didn’t even know he was playing,” Kevin Love said. “So I asked him before the game what he’d been doing, and he said he’d been running the past 8-10 games. And when he came in here, he gave us such a spark, I told him he really helped us win this game.”

He did.


Turiaf played 21 minutes, shot 5-of-5 from the field and recorded 11 points and seven rebounds in his return to the floor—a 102-88 win over Memphis in a pivotal, must-win scenario for the Grizzlies.

When you see Turiaf’s enthusiasm and his activity on the court, you begin to realize just how much of an impact his presence makes on the Wolves. From Day 1, Timberwolves coaches and players have talked about how he’s such a good teammate to have around. He’s full of energy both verbally and physically, and his teammates feed off that energy throughout the game.

I couldn't find the game on NBA LP. I was trying to switch back and forth between the Celtics, Lakers vs. Spurs, and TWolves, but could not come up with it.
