Wolves Updates

Hassell signing and listening to Crime Mob while leaving the Target Center after Wednesday's win over the Nets.

Update: I was wrong. He was actually listening to Three Six Mafia.

Fred Hoiberg is ready to become the first NBA player to play with a pacemaker. According to the Star Tribune, his agent has been in touch with four or five teams, including Denver.

"I'll play if it makes sense," Hoiberg said. "There is still a good chance I don't play this season."

Hoiberg says that if he does sign with a team this season, he wants to return to the Wolves for the next.

Nets Vince Carter on Garnett:
"He might be frustrated, but the passion? No, he loves to play."

The experts at Fanball list Marcus Banks as one of the "hot pickups" for fantasy leagues this week.

From the Pioneer Press:
One person near the Timberwolves fan who was hit in the face by a basketball tossed by Kevin Garnett during the game against Memphis on Sunday overheard the fan say, "I can't walk" when asked to go to the medical area at Target Center.
