Wolves Lose Budinger 9/27/13
MINNEAPOLIS - Minnesota forward Chase Budinger needs surgery on his left knee and will be out indefinitely. Last season Budinger, who signed a three-year, $15 million contract this summer, and several others missed long stretches of time with injuries. He only played 23 games last year because of a torn meniscus in his left knee. But Timberwolves president Flip Saunders says Budinger was given a clean bill of health when he signed the contract.
