Wednesday night, Minnesota’s Ronny Turiaf injured his knee when he went up for a rebound and came down awkwardly. He left the game and did not return.

Now comes the really bad news — he suffered a bone bruise in his knee and will be out about three weeks, something Flip Saunders said and was tweeted by Andy Greder of the Pioneer Press.

This particularly isn’t good for Minnesota because Nikola Pekovic is already out with an ankle injury (although he could return this week). That means the Timberwolves roll out Kevin Love and after that Dante Cunningham and Gorgui Deng.

That’s not going to help a team with dreams of a late playoff push with a run of wins.

    What is a “Bome Bruise?” Is that the hip hop contraction for “dome bone?”

    Tough luck, Turiaf is a great guy and a tough player. He fought back from heart problems and has carved out a very good 8 year career as a rotation player. He was one of my favorite Lakers.
