Chase Budinger SF MIN 2 Days

Budinger says he feels healthy heading into training camp, Andy Greder of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. "Never thought I'd be eager for camp," Budinger said.

Knee issues prevented Budinger from participating in the last two training camps, but follwing another injury-riddled season, he's fully healthy as camp gets underway. The Arizona product played in only half of the team's games last season after playing in just 23 two seasons ago. If he can stay healthy, he'll compete for a significant role on the wing, as he's proven capable of scoring efficiently in the past (9.6 points, 40.2% 3Pt in 2011-12).

Chase Budinger (knee, ankle) has been fully cleared for Monday's training camp with the Wolves.

It's a three-day session for Budinger, who missed the last six games of the season due to injury. Budinger had a knee issue earlier in the season and it kept his minutes down to a career-low 18.3 per game. If the Wolves do unload Kevin Love, Buds could be looking at some more shots from the perimeter.

Chase Budinger (ankle) will not play against the Bulls on Wednesday.

He suffered an ankle sprain over the weekend and it's too bad because the Wolves are down to the bottom of the barrel for wings. With all of there guys out, Robbie Hummel should start and see all the minutes he can handle. Quite frankly, he's not that great, so he's only a low-end play.

Chase Budinger's sprained ankle will sideline him on Tuesday and coach Rick Adelman doesn't expect him to play again this season.

Budinger was starting with Kevin Martin (heel) out of commission, but he hurt himself just one minute into Saturday's game. Robbie Hummel may assume the starting role as a consequence, and he's worth a look if you need a cheap source of points and 3-pointers.

Chase Budinger admitted that he's been frustrated during a "very challenging, very grueling" recovery from multiple knee surgeries.

His struggles are evident in his 38.5 percent shooting this season, which has allowed Corey Brewer to keep his spot as the Wolves' starting SF. "Next year is where you'll see where he's really at," said coach Rick Adelman. "He just needs a whole summer to rehab without any other setbacks." Given Budinger's injuries and limitations this season, fantasy owners should approach him warily during fantasy drafts next year.

Chase Budinger played just 14 minutes and played six points on Saturday.

Kevin Martin returned to action tonight and it hurt Budinger's minutes quite a bit. If you've been rolling with Budinger in Martin's absence, it's time to hit the waiver wire and find a better option.

Chase Budinger scored five points with two boards, two assists and one steal in 28 minutes.

He hit only one 3-pointer and shot 2-of-8 tonight. Budinger's minutes have been at least 27 in each of his last four games, but Kevin Martin's evaluation on Friday will serve as an expiration date for owners in most leagues. If there's a hot free agent from the deadline, he's certainly on the chopping block.

The Grizzlies are discussing a deal with the Timberwolves centered around Chase Budinger and J.J. Barea.

The Grizzlies would like to include Tayshaun Prince and may also include Tony Allen. The Grizzlies have been wanting to add some perimeter shooting and Prince isn't really needed much more for defense with the emergence of James Johnson. None of these players would see much more playing time than they're currently receiving, so there's little reason to pick them up.

Chase Budinger started again for injured Kevin Martin (thumb) and had 12 points, two steals and three 3-pointers on 4-of-13 shooting.

The shooting wasn't great, but he played 27 minutes and is averaging 15 points, four rebounds, one steal and more than two 3-pointers in his last three games. As long as Martin is out, Budinger is worth a look in all formats.
