Timberwolves Training Camp 2011: Media Day Begins Camp, Martell Webster Out Indefinitely

The young and promising Minnesota Timberwolves officially gathered with new head coach Rick Adelman for the first time as the Wolves went through the Media Day to begin training camp.

One of those young and promising talents won't be on the court during training camp, though. Shooting guard Martell Webster has been ruled out indefinitely for the Wolves as he continues to recover from microdiscectomy surgery he underwent for his back on September 28th.

Webster is heading into his seventh NBA season but is still just 25 years old has struggled to stay on the court during his career. Last season, back issues force Webster to only play in 46 games after being acquired in a draft day trade from the Portland Trail Blazers.

Webster is hoping the short-term absence to take care of his back will lead to a long-term solution for the remainder of his NBA career. The guard should be plenty motivated to work through the recover process since the collection of wing players for the Wolves will make earning playing time a challenge.
