Playing increased minutes in the absence of Ricky Rubio, whose season ended when he blew out his knee on March 9, Ridnour sprained his ankle late in the third quarter of Minnesota's 116-108 Monday night loss to the Sacramento Kings.
The Wolves' other point guard, J.J. Barea, is already battling a thigh injury. He is expected back Wednesday, but his return doesn't figure to add any depth.
Along with Rubio, Ridnour and Barea, the other guard on the Wolves' roster is Malcolm Lee, a rookie from UCLA. Lee has played in just nine games this season and is averaging 2.6 points.
Oh, and Michael Beasley is still dealing with a toe injury.
