The Minnesota Timberwolves have been stumbling down the stretch, trying to hold on long enough for the franchise’s first postseason appearance in 14 years.

Jimmy Butler might be back just in time.

The All-Star shooting guard, whose fearlessness with the ball and tenacity defending it have been badly missed by the team, told reporters after practice on Tuesday that he’s “this close” to being back on the court.

Butler was a full participant in the workout, coach Tom Thibodeau said, and his surgically repaired right knee will be evaluated again on Wednesday.

Sources: Teams ‘more wary’ of Signing Kyrie Irving in Free Agency

Kyrie Irving is going to get paid. He’s going to get a max contract from someone, and the Celtics would still like to be the team that signs those checks. Let’s put that right up front.

But, man, is it getting strange out here on the Kyrie beat.

The most interesting bit of information from several sources that we’ve been able to consolidate and confirm is that some teams thought to have interest in Irving as a free agent are now a great deal more wary. Based on the way things played out with the Celtics this season and Irving’s role both off the court all year and on it in the playoff loss to Milwaukee, certain clubs are concerned about putting too many eggs in his basket right away.
