T-Wolves’ Chase Budinger Out 3-4 Months

Minnesota Timberwolves/NBA(MINNEAPOLIS) -- Minnesota Timberwolves forward Chase Budinger is expected to miss the next 3-4 months while recovering from surgery he had to repair the torn lateral meniscus in his left knee.

The 24-year-old Budinger was injured in the fourth quarter of the Timberwolves' game versus the Chicago Bulls Saturday, and the surgery was performed by Dr. James Andrews on Tuesday.

Budinger joins a long list of injured Wolves players, including Kevin Love, JJ Barea, Ricky Rubio, Brandon Roy, and Nickola Pekovic.

Budinger has averaged 11.8 points and 3.5 rebounds per game, helping the T-Wolves (5-2) to their best start since the 2001-02 season.
