Jonny Flynn Taking His Time To Return From Hip Surgery

Minnesota Timberwolves point guard Jonny Flynn said yesterday that, as much as he wants to play again, he’s going to take his time returning from hip surgery.

“We don’t really have an etched-in-stone timetable, anything can happen,” Flynn said. “We’re just going to take our time to make sure I get out there healthy. If that’s the first game of the regular season, so be it. If that’s the middle of November, so be it. But whenever I’m healthy and feel I can go out there and play 100 percent, that’s when I’ll be out there.”

Wolves coach Kurt Rambis said the Timberwolves won’t know what they have as a team this season until Flynn is healthy.

“We’ll never know what we have as ballclub until he gets back and gets comfortable,” Rambis said. “Even when he’s back healthy and ready to play, he has to get used to playing with everybody and everybody has to get used to him.”

So, essentially, Kurt Rambis is keeping expectations low. Probably not a bad idea.

Jonny Flynn To Undergo Hip Surgery Today

Jerry Zgoda of the Star Tribune can confirm Marc J. Spears’ earlier report that Wolves starting point guard Jonny Flynn needs hip surgery. In fact, as Zgoda reports on Twitter, Flynn will have that surgery today:

Flynn’s absence during his recovery period will limit the Wolves’ options at point guard. Free-agent signee Luke Ridnour will likely earn the starting gig, with Sebastian Telfair, obtained last night from the Cleveland Cavaliers in exchange for Ramon Sessions, getting backup minutes.

The cruelest irony in this situation is that Sessions is very likely the best of the three players, and the minutes he could have soaked up with Flynn out would have inflated his value around the league, allowing GM David Kahn to get more in return for him.
