Wolves Updates 12/30

Minnesota's Rashad McCants, out since early-summer microfracture surgery on his right knee, has been practicing on a limited basis with the team - and could be ready to return in a couple of weeks. But coach Dwane Casey was cautious about putting a timetable on that, stressing that it will depend on how McCants responds to increased contact and activity.

From Kent Youngblood/Star Tribune:
Two Wolves will be honored during the team's two-game road swing to New Jersey and Carolina.

First, rookie guard Randy Foye will have his high school jersey retired today before the Wolves' game in New Jersey. Foye attended East Side High in Newark, N.J.

On Sunday Rashad McCants will have his jersey hung from the rafters of the Smith Center on the University of North Carolina campus. The school also will honor Sean May and Raymond Felton at halftime of the UNC-Dayton game.

Congratulations to Mike James and his wife Angela who gave birth to a baby girl on Friday morning.
