Wolves Updates 4/15

From Rick Alonzo/Pioneer Press:
Wittman said there's still no word as to whether forward Kevin Garnett will return to action this season. Wittman said the all-star won't play today. Wittman said he had heard that Garnett received treatment for the soreness in his right quadriceps, but the coach was sketchy about the details.

Judging by the lack of information being relayed, it's looking more and more as if Garnett will not return this season. Wittman said Garnett is doubtful for Monday's game at Denver.

Britt Robson/On The Ball compares the team's performance under former coach Dwane Casey and current coach Randy Wittman.

Steve Aschburner/Star Tribune on Craig Smith:
The bottom half of his left eye is discolored by blood from when he got poked Monday by Toronto's Kris Humphries, the former Gopher.

"My vision's good. It [the eye] just looks bad," said Smith, who has been donning shades indoors.

Despite injuries to both hands, Marko Jaric made the team's roadtrip and says, "
Whatever they need me to do, I'll do it."

Aschburner also writes:
Randy Foye will be a solid NBA player for a decade or more, but right now, Roy should have been a buy-and-hold stock for the Wolves. They extracted $1 million from Portland for the draft night swap, taking cash for the right to be second-guessed for years. Roy even is more ready at the point than Foye, for now.

The Nuggets signed Anthony Carter for the rest of the season.
