Wolves Updates 2/24

Bill Simmons hands out trade deadline grades to each team and gives the Wolves an "F-infinity-minus."

The Pioneer Press says that Eddie Griffin has not been working out with the Wolves since his January suspension. In a sign that he's probably not rejoining the team, Griffin's name was removed from his dressing stall and Trent Hassell was taking it over.

The team and Griffin's representatives reportedly tried to negotiate a buyout of the final 1 ½ years on the 24-year-old's contract, but the case could go to arbitration.

Coach Wittman and Mad Dog think the player could miss two weeks due to his ankle sprain.

Coach Wittman on Mike James as a reserve:
"I've liked what I've seen since we've made the change," coach Randy Wittman said. "He's gotten his aggression back offensively."

From Ray Ratto/San Francisco Chronicle:
The Timberwolves have been running around like Hamlet, holding Garnett's skull before them and wondering, "To be, or not to be." Randy Foye is worth watching, and Ricky Davis is, well, Ricky Davis. This team looks dead-ended...

From the AP:
Former NBA star Latrell Sprewell, accused of assaulting his girlfriend in front of their children, may communicate with his children only by phone, e-mail or text message.
