Just as a trio of guards make their returns, out goes another. Jodie Meeks landed awkwardly on Minnesota Timberwolves’ guard Corey Brewer after a jump shot. Meeks immediately crumpled to the ground in obvious pain before being helped off the court. Meeks did gingerly walk under his own power from the tunnel to the locker room, but certainly was hampered. His return was fairly quickly ruled out.
Jodie Meeks sprained his right ankle, coming down on Brewer's foot, and will not return. Blake has 2 PF's, Young's playing SG.
