Sad news for Minnesota Timberwolves forward Thaddeus Young, who is grieving the loss of his mother, Lula Hall. Young will miss an indefinite number of games while he's away from the team.

The Timberwolves released this statement Friday morning:

"The Timberwolves organization is deeply saddened to learn of the passing yesterday of Lula Hall, Thaddeus Young’s mother. The Timberwolves send our condolences to the Young and Hall families in this difficult time. Thad will be away from the team with his family for an indefinite period of time, including tonight’s game at New Orleans and Saturday night’s game at Dallas."

Young, 26, describes himself on his Twitter profile as a "#familyfirst" person.

With Young away from the team, the Pioneer Press reports that Anthony Bennett could start in his place Friday night against the New Orleans Pelicans. Young is averaging 14.3 points and five rebounds per game this season.
