Luke Ridnour Injury: Timberwolves' Guard Out Monday, May Not Travel With Team To Denver

Luke Ridnour will already miss tonight's game against the Phoenix Suns due to an ankle injury he suffered in the third quarter of last Monday's loss against the Sacramento Kings, but the guard may also miss the Timberwolves' upcoming trip to Denver:

Indeed, Adelman said he doesn't anticipate taking Ridnour to Denver tomorrow for Wednesday's game.

"I just can't see him playing until, maybe Saturday (against Oklahoma City)," Adelman said. "That's maybe wishful thinking, too."

The Timberwolves' PR tweeted that Adelman would make a decision after the game on Monday. Injuries have plagued the Timberwolves' guards all year, but Adelman said before the game that he's instilling a 'no excuses' attitude and expects better effort out of the Timberwolves on defense.
