Analysis: The team says Budinger was cleared on Monday and will start doing more running on the court in addition to some cutting and jumping on his surgically repaired left knee. Budinger will be re-evaluated in two to three weeks, putting his return to the court likely closer to the end of March. He tore the lateral meniscus in his knee in the sixth game of the season. The loss robbed the Wolves of a much-needed perimeter shooter and versatile swingman.

Analysis: Dr. James Andrews performed the surgery Tuesday, three days after Budinger was injured in a game against the Chicago Bulls. Budinger emerged as a valuable perimeter player in his first season in Minnesota. He is averaging 11.8 points and had helped fill in for Roy, who has missed two straight games with knee soreness.

Analysis: Budinger finished with 18 points and could be in line for a much bigger role if Brandon Roy (knee) is forced to miss time.
