The Minnesota Timberwolves announced on Saturday that Ronny Turiaf was schedule to undergo a MRI on his right elbow injury that he suffered during the second quarter of last night’s win over the Oklahoma City Thunder.
They then announced that the MRI revealed that Turiaf suffered a radial head fracture of his right elbow. That doesn’t sound good. The team also said that Turiaf will be re-evaluated later this week to determine an approximate time table for a return to the court.
It’s expected that rookie Gorgei Dieng will see some time in the absence of Turiaf. That, and expect a lot more small lineups from Rick Adelman.
Turiaf was averaging 10 minutes per game for the Wolves through two games this season.
