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

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.

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.

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.

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

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!

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

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.

      Made it to Riverdale Flowage today. Pretty silted in, structure less reservoir. Still has some potential. Seen a few bass swimming around, and caught 2 pike early on back to back casts, but didn’t see another fish after that. Floating leaves EVERYWHERE made whopper ploppers a difficult presentation. Jig and craw about the only thing I could use to keep that stuff off.

      On the south end...  An excellent week of fall walleye fishing.  Bring lots of bait as the fish are active.  There are lots of small fish in the system that bodes well for the future.  You will catch your eaters and other larger fish, but will usually have to sort through small fish along the way. Anchored up and jigging with a fathead or emerald shiner is the go to method.  Most fish are usually adjacent to the bottom.  Live shiners are available and effective.  Some anglers still using spinners with a minnow or trolling crankbaits. The best reports are coming from 17-27 feet of water across the south shore in areas such as Pine Island, Morris Point, Zippel Bay, Graceton Beach, Long Point and Rocky Point.  Various schools within these depths.  In addition to walleyes and saugers, pike, jumbo perch, sturgeon and even a few crappies are in the mix for walleye anglers.  On the Rainy River...   Emerald shiners continue to run in the Rainy River, consequently, there are walleyes around.  Jigging with a frozen or live shiner, is the go to method.  Emerald shiners are tough to beat.   Trolling crankbaits is an extremely effective technique in the river.  Also great in locating walleyes or when fish are scattered.    Sturgeon activity continues good.  A gob of crawlers and/or frozen shiners on a sturgeon rig (18 inch leader made of 60lb test, circle hook and a 2-3 ounce no roll sinker) is the ticket.  The catch and release season continues through April 23, 2022. Up at the NW Angle...  Fall fishing up at the Angle continues to be excellent.  Most anglers are using a jig and minnow or jig and plastic for walleyes.  In some areas, walleyes are stacked and active with big numbers of fish being caught.   Gold, pink and/or glow colored jigs and spinners are doing well.  Reminder, no live, frozen or dead bait being able to be transported over the border from the U.S. into Canada, consequently anglers boating into Ontario waters reporting various plastics on their jigs and spinners working great. Various areas of structure such as points, reefs and sandy areas in neck down areas continue to hold good fish.  12 - 26 feet is the range depending upon the spot.   Big crappies are active in their fall spots and being caught on jigs and minnows in 24-30' around various structure. Muskie action was hot this week.  Jigging large baits has boated good numbers of fish as well as casting and trolling.  Travel to and from the Angle via vehicle through the 40 miles of Canada is open.  Boating into Canadian waters is now open.   Want to avoid crossing the border?  Charter transport via water and ice and flights over the lake are available through the LOW Passenger Service and Lake Country Air both this fall and into the winter months via ice.

      I did pretty good bass fishing on Saturday from 8am - 1pm.  It was frigid when we started at 8am but by 10 the sun was fully up and it was more comfortable.  A friend and I caught 7 bass and 5 pike.  I caught the biggest bass I've caught in a month, a 19.5 incher.  The water temp was 58 degrees.  I might try going one more time and then hang it up for the season as long as the water temp stays above 50.  I think turnover has just occurred because the water temp dropped about 10-12 degrees in less than a week.

      Yep, western MN and Lake of the Woods diver reports were good from the weekend.  That Arrowhead head area is fickle for ducks and hitting the migration.     We had a fantastic week up there about 8-9 years ago and have been chasing that memory almost every year since.  We just don’t spend as much time doing it anymore.  Still love being there in October and that chase.   We went from a 30 decoy spread in small clusters to a 6 decoy spread set up in a 4/2 grouping.  That’s the one they liked.  No pass shots, wings cupped and feet down or they were left to carry on.   I gave up the fully flocked mallards in exchange for the early season mallards.  I don’t know if that change worked as well as I think it did but like I said, they came to em.  Even the geese.
