Despite being away from the Timberwolves for three weeks, coach Rick Adelman still had to respond to a question about injured guard Brandon Roy before the Wolves' game against the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday night, Jan. 30, at Target Center.
Adelman didn't have much of an update on Roy, who has not played since Nov. 9.
"He's still rehabilitating," Adelman said. "He hasn't practiced or anything. The doctors are still looking at him."
Roy underwent surgery Nov. 19 to relieve discomfort in his right knee. He was practicing with the team in late December when he suffered a setback in his recovery. No timetable has been set for Roy's return.
Flagrant foul session: Wolves backup center Greg Stiemsma was involved in two flagrant foul situations within a one-minute stretch of the second quarter in Wednesday's game.
Clippers forward Matt Barnes was ejected at the 8:26 mark for throwing an elbow at Stiemsma, who had set a hard screen on Barnes. Barnes was given a Flagrant Foul 2, which calls for an automatic ejection.
A minute later, Stiemsma was given a Flagrant Foul 1 for knocking Clippers forward Grant Hill to the floor while Hill was trying to rebound a missed shot.
Two Clippers players, Caron Butler and Ronny Turiaf, went after Stiemsma but did not throw any punches. Butler and Turiaf were given technical fouls.
