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.
