Wolves Updates 1/23

Britt Robson/City Pages talks about Coach Casey's pregame comments on Ricky Davis:
It is this overmassaging of Davis's ego that worries me about Casey, especially occurring just one game after the coach fell on his sword claiming it was his decision for Davis not to the play the rest of the way against Detroit. Davis won't be sufficiently motivated or appreciative of his coach claiming he possesses a team spirit equivalent to Garnett, and the rest of us know it's bullshit.

Rick Alonzo/Pioneer Press on the team's feelings on Troy Hudson:
Still, his teammates know his worth. Kevin Garnett has made several public appeals for Hudson to get more playing time in recent weeks.
Foye said that when he makes a good play, it's almost as if Hudson made the play because he has been so involved in teaching Foye the game.

Mad Dog is "upset" that McDyess wasn't fined for knocking him down:
"I look at the precedent that is being set here: You can extend [a forearm] hard at the head and neck, and that's only a 'T.' It is what it is if they're going to allow that stuff to happen."

Stephen Litel at Wolves Hoops Blog is talking to assistant coach Bob Ociepka after every game this week.

Randy Foye is at #3 in this week's rookie rankings on NBA.com. In the overall standings, Foye remains at #4 while Craig Smith moves up a notch to #9.
