Timberwolves president of basketball operations Flip Saunders delivered good news to fans regarding Chase Budinger on Thursday.

Budinger had surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee six weeks ago. The same injury limited him to just 23 games last season.

Yahoo! Sports reports that Budinger is expected to make a full recovery. A timetable has not been set for his return to basketball activities.

Budinger agree to a three-year, $16 million contract with the Wolves in July.

The 6-foot-7 forward has averaged 9.4 points per game in his four-year career.
