Minnesota Timberwolves: Don't ask Wally Szczerbiak how good his team could be if he and Troy Hudson weren't injured. He hasn't played a single game with them yet. "It's so hard watching," Szczerbiak said in the Star Tribune, "knowing how good this team can be when we all get healthy. We've never had this type of team before. I just want to get out there . . . It's hard. Although you're a part of the team, you're not a part of what's going on on the court and you feel somewhat detached." Both players have even stopped traveling with the team and are not scheduled to return any sooner than Thanksgiving.
Philadelphia 76ers: If one MRI on Derrick Coleman's tender left knee isn't enough, then the Sixers will just have to get another one done sometime around Nov. 22. Coleman was forced out of the second half of their most recent game after fluid build up in the knee caused him too much pain to play, reports the Philadelphia Daily News. It is the same knee that the power forward had surgery on during the summer.
