T-Wolves' Budinger undergoes knee surgery

The SportsXchange

Minnesota Timberwolves swingman Chase Budinger is out indefinitely following arthroscopic surgery on his left knee to perform a meniscectomy.

Budinger was re-signed to a three-year, $15 million deal despite playing in just 23 games last season due to a torn meniscus in the same knee. In his absence, the Timberwolves will look for Derrick Williams, the No. 2 overall pick three years ago, to assume more playing time. Williams reportedly has lost around 20 pounds in an effort to become quick enough to handle small forward duties.

Budinger's procedure was performed by Dr. James Andrews at the Andrews Institute for Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine in Pensacola, Fla.
