The positive news on both players comes at a time when everything seems to be going well for the Wolves.

Head coach Chris Finch was recently named the western conference coach of the month by the NBA.

He joined Kevin McHale and Flip Saunders as the only other coaches in franchise history to receive the honor.

The team's start to the season is their best in franchise history.

The Timberwolves host the Spurs at Target Center Wednesday night with tip-off set for 6:30 p.m.
