Wolves Updates 3/7

From Kent Youngblood/Star Tribune:
The assistant city attorney informed Foye by letter that the citation he had been issued in connection with a Feb. 12 scuffle had been dismissed.

"I told everyone from the beginning what was going on," Foye said before Tuesday's 117-107 double-overtime victory over the Los Angeles Lakers. "And I know most people believed me. But a lot of people didn't. But the facts came out, so it's over and I'm happy."

From Rick Alonzo/Pioneer Press:
Wittman said McCants suffered no setbacks to his surgically repaired right knee after playing a season-high 32 minutes at Boston. It was McCants' 15th game back.

Marko Jaric on getting his first start of the season in last night's game:
"It's been a long time," said Jaric, who started the first 46 games of last season, his first in Minnesota. "I have my chance to hopefully play good, stay in the lineup, hopefully win games. That's all I care about right now."

On Trenton Hassell's sprained ankle:
Hassell will be evaluated over the next two days before determining his availability for weekend road games at Miami on Friday and Atlanta on Saturday.

Mad Dog on his excitement over yesterday's win, his admiration of Brian Shaw, and his desire to get to the bottom of whether it was Jack Nicholson or merely an impersonator at the Target Center last night.

Jack McCallum/ on which player he'd rather have: Garnett or Dirk Nowitzki.

From Kevin Ding/OC Register:
There's no doubt that Garnett, in Year 11 of his career, still is bringin' it. By player efficiency rating, he is the league's No.1 player, ahead of Dwyane Wade, Dirk Nowitzki and Bryant.

But to what end? At plus-68, Garnett is the only player on his team besides ever-hustling Mark Madsen (plus-11) with a positive plus-minus ratio, which is calculated by monitoring the score when a player is on the court.
