MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Minnesota Timberwolves coach Rick Adelman has returned to the team for the final game before the NBA All-Star break.
Adelman said Wednesday before the Timberwolves hosted Denver that his wife, Mary Kay, had ''a little problem'' that he had to tend to. Adelman declined to be more specific but said the situation was ''fine.'' She has suffered from seizures in the past, and Adelman missed 11 games last season to be with her during a particularly difficult stretch.
Adelman missed the game Monday night against Houston and practice Tuesday.
The Wolves have six days between games. They host Indiana next Wednesday night after the break.
