Timberwolves Injury News: Chase Budinger Tears Lateral Meniscus

The Timberwolves cannot be happy with the amount of injury they are suffering this season. Ricky Rubio has been out since last season, Kevin Love recently has gotten injured and now the Wolves can add Chase Budinger to that list.

From the Timberwolves Press Release:
The Minnesota Timberwolves today announced that forward Chase Budinger suffered a lateral meniscus tear of his left knee during yesterday's game at Chicago. Budinger suffered the injury at the 6:00 mark of the fourth quarter in Minnesota's 87-80 loss to the Bulls. Surgery will be scheduled later this week. A timetable for his return will be determined after the surgery.
So far this season, newly acquired Chase Budinger is averaging 11.8 points and 3.5 rebounds per game, and he's got himself one game winner. The Wolves really have to hope he does not end up losing too much time, or this could spell trouble for the team's future.
