WASHINGTON (AP) -Randy Wittman returned to the sideline Tuesday night, coaching the Minnesota Timberwolves after having back surgery last week.
``It is 100 percent better,'' Wittman said before Minnesota's game at Washington. ``It is something that had to be done. It was awful.''
He missed Minnesota's previous three games, with assistant Jerry Sichting filling in and going 1-2.
Wittman kept tabs on his club by watching games at home on television and by speaking with his coaching staff three or four times a day.
``I could see a little bit different things from my vantage point,'' Wittman said. ``You try to give your two cents' worth.''
Timberwolves guard Randy Foye is expected to continue rehabbing his injured left knee for a few more weeks.
Foye, an NBA all-rookie team selection in 2006-07, has not played this season, but he was cleared to ramp up his rehab work after having some tests on the knee Monday.
