Timberwolves 2013-2014

Chase Budinger (knee surgery) has been cleared to resume basketball activities, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

He will rejoin the team this weekend but his return date is still uncertain. When he returns it will be interesting to see how Rick Adelman handles the starting SF position. Budinger was slated to start prior to his injury and may take the job once he's up to speed, but Corey Brewer has played very well during Minnesota's 6-3 start this season, and he leads the NBA in fast-break points. We will have many more Budinger updates before he's ready to play in a game

Quote:

Updating a previous report, Chase Budinger (knee) will rejoin the Wolves this week but he has not been cleared for basketball activities.

According to the Wolves' PR department, "[budinger] has been cleared to return to Minneapolis to continue his rehab. He remains sidelined indefinitely." Beat writer Jon Krawczynski suggests that "mid- to late-December" is a realistic timetable for Budinger to return -- he's been limited to treadmill workouts and will need to regain his strength and conditioning once he's fully cleared. Minnesota isn't likely to rush him into action coming off a second knee surgery, especially with Corey Brewer thriving as the team's starting SF.

Rubio is terrible

He looked good with that triple-double against the Lakers. Needs to be more consistent though.

We will miss him he was one heck of a pick. I thought we played decent against Indiana until the end of the game but they play some defense over there.

All ESPN could talk about yesterday was Kobe Bryant's terrible contract and how the Lakers are going to go after a big name free agent, and Love's name got brought up constantly. If/when we lose Love to free agency, I am going to be done supporting this team. I am so sick of Minnesota sports teams grooming young guys into superstars, only to have them be swept up by big market teams

You can't blame a guy for wanting to go back home to play.

Good come from behind win last night! The negative Nancy in me thought forsure they would loose the 2nd game in a back to back schedule.

Love Adelman as a coach, but can we stop with the full line switches. Our bench sucks in the first place, having 5 of them out there at once is hard to watch.

Just saw a bit of the Clippers game and we were down by 8 - 10 when I checked in. I just can't get into them.

This team just does whatever they can to [PoorWordUsage] close games down their leg. 0-9 in games decided by 4 points of less. That's pathetic.

I think it has a lot to do with leaving the bench in there to long, then putting the starters back in with 2 minutes left, and they are out of sync.

I would like to see all the starters on the floor for the last 10 minutes of the game.

What a joke! 0-10

Jeepers just take care of the ball! Stupid turnovers at the end doomed the wolves.. dumb mistakes. No way they should have lost that game...

Have fun in L.A. Love. Rubio isn't panning out like Kahn made us to believe. Wolves needs another all star to compliment. Most good teams have two all stars and we have one. Rubio should average 10pts and 10assts. Well my .02

We drafted a very good PG this past draft, then traded him away. We really could use him right now.

Trade for Nate Wolters! smile

He's riding the pine on a terrible Bucks team but puts up good numbers when he plays. When the guards over there were hurt he actually did really well.

Naters gonna Nate!

I was extremely dissapointed when they got rid of Burke, he's gonna be a really good player in this league.

Rubio is a liability down the stretch. He can't shoot or make a layup so the opponents barely has to guard him. Wish they would've posted up pek in those last few times down on offense.

Rubio is hurting this squad at the end of games. I just read an ESPN article yesterday about PHX and MSP and their point differentials versus records. Phoenix has outperformed their point differential by like 4 games and Wolves have underperformed by 5. The writer was predicting Wolves win. Well, when you lose that many close games, it's a trend. 0-10 in 4 point games is a problem.

      The mouth of the creek is quite a ways downstream from the landing, and you’ll have to cross several peoples’ docks. Entire stream is surrounded by private property. Sure, you can technically legally access the stream, but why would you want to bother with the headache of dealing with landowners that DON’T want you there? Stream is small enough to step across in most places, it’s very weedy, and lot’s of overhanging brush. Not to mention, below average at best numbers of small trout!   You want easy access? Buy a Wisconsin license! Right across the river in Pierce County alone, there’s hundreds of miles of public easements on trout streams that are ten times better than anything Minnesota has to offer!

      Pike suckers are about 3½ inches long.  Walleyes really like them in the fall and early winter.  Caught my fish in 13-15 FOW drifting slowly.  Good solid bites.

      Got up Thursday evening to rain and pretty heavy wind Friday morning had us holding off on putting the boat in the water. Fished briefly Friday evening at sunset and picked up an 18" and a couple smalls. Fishing was decent Saturday morning but no real size, everything was 12-15". I had one that looked to be 17"ish flop off as I was trying to flip it into the boat. All the fish we caught were in 17-22'. We were fishing around about a 6' top but never caught anything on top. They appeared to be relating to the structure but not actually on it. Tried again Saturday evening for a couple hours and continued to pick up small walleye just like the morning. Sunday was windy again but we decided to slug it out for awhile and caught one decent perch and one small walleye. We fished similar depths and spots as Saturday but they weren't there. Marked them out in 35'+ but didn't feel like fighting the wind out in the big water so we called it quits around noon and never went back out(the wind never really did lay down or we may have tried again). Jig/minnow way outfished bottom bouncers/crawlers. Wish bottom bouncers would have worked better because it was tough to keep a jig down as fast as we were drifting and we never found a school to spot lock on.

      I am heading up there tomorrow.  Where do you guys get minnows up in the area?  Tower or Cook or down in Virginia?  I have never heard of pike suckers?  How large are they?  Are you guys fishing the East or West side of the lake?  Let me know.  I am thinking of fishing the East side tomorrow and then headed to the west side from Thursday thru Sunday.  Any help would be appreciated?  I am a newby to the area.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks!
