                === Wolves' Budinger undergoes knee surgery ===
 
 Minneapolis,  MN (SportsNetwork.com)  - Minnesota  Timberwolves forward  Chase
 Budinger  is  out indefinitely after  having successful arthroscopic left knee
 surgery on Monday.
 
 Budinger  was  heading into training camp  feeling confident that his knee was
 back to full strength, after he underwent surgery in November when he tore the
 meniscus  in  the same knee  last season. He returned  last season in March to
 play a total of 23 games.
 
 The  25-year-old Arizona  product averaged  9.4 points  and 3.1  rebounds last
 season. He was acquired from Houston just prior to the 2012 NBA Draft and owns
 career  averages of 9.4  points with 3.4 rebounds in 233 games for the Rockets
 and Timberwolves.
 
 Corey  Brewer  is expected to start  in place of Budinger. Brewer has averaged
 9.5 points, 3.1 rebounds and 1.6 assists through his six year career.
