Adelman will coach Wednesday after tending to ill wife


After missing Minnesota's loss to Houston Monday and Wolves practice Tuesday for a personal reason, head coach Rick Adelman returned to Target Center today and will coach tonight against the Nuggets, according to Kent Youngblood of the Star Tribune.

Adelman spoke to the media just before tipoff and said his absence was due to his wife having "a little problem", though he would not elaborate further.

With the loss Monday, Minnesota is now 2-10 the last two seasons without Adelman, who missed 11 games last year because of his wife's bout with recurring seizures.

The Wolves desperately need a win, having lost six of their last seven games, and currently sitting six-and-a-half games outside a playoff spot.

The Nuggets are one game ahead of them and have lost five of their last seven, the most recent of which was a 119-80 pounding at the hands of Indiana Monday.

The Wolves will be without Kevin Martin, who will miss two-to-three more weeks, and Nikola Pekovic, who still has not fully recovered from ankle bursitis.
