Report: Wolves using SF Chase Budinger as trade bait


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/16/2014) The Timberwolves are dangling small forward Chase Budinger in trade talks, league sources have told Yahoo Sports. Among their possible trade partners are Detroit and Houston.

The report claims, however, that the Rockets are reluctant to assume the $5 million player option Budinger has for next season. The Pistons appear to be a more realistic possibility.

Budinger averaged 6.7 points and 3.0 rebounds in 41 games last season.

Muhammad and Budinger might be out for the season as a result of their injuries, while the remaining three remain day to day moving forward.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Budinger appeared in just 41 games this season, after being limited to 23 the year before due to knee troubles. He is averaging a career-low 6.7 points and 2.5 rebounds per game.

Chase Budinger exits after one minute


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/6/2014) Timberwolves forward Chase Budinger got the start Saturday against the Magic with Kevin Martin dealing with a foot injury, but he could not make it through the game due to his own injury.

Budinger played just one minute before leaving the game with a sprained right ankle. He was announced as questionable to return, but he never made it back, finishing with two points in one minute in the 100-92 loss.

Budinger has seen an increase in playing time recently, after being worked back pretty slowly following knee surgery. He has appeared in just 41 games this season, after being limited to 23 the year before. He is averaging a career-low 6.7 points and 2.5 rebounds per game. 


Chase Budinger pitching in


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(2/26/2014) Timberwolves forward Chase Budinger continues to see a solid role, as he played 30 minutes in a 110-101 win over the Suns.

Budinger scored 10 points on 4 of 9 shooting in the win, though he was just 1 of 4 from three-point range after missing just one in each of his previous two games. He added just two rebounds while turning the ball over once as well.

Grizzlies, Timberwolves discuss trade involving Chase Budinger


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/17/2014) The Grizzlies and Timberwolves are discusing a trade involving Minnesota forward Chase Budinger and guard J.J. Barea, Yahoo! Sports reports.

The Grizzlies would be sending a package that includes forward Tayshaun Prince and potentially guard Tony Allen to Minnesota in the deal, according to the report, though the deal appears to be in an early enough stage that the names involve could change.

Timberwolves general manager Flip Saunders is believed to be looking to add defensive toughness to the team, which would explain the potential inclusion of Allen. The Grizzlies have been aggressively looking for a team to take the remaining two years of Prince's contract.

Chase Budinger undergoes surgery


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(10/1/2013) Timberwolves forward Chase Budinger is expected to be out indefinitely after undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his left knee to repair a meniscus cartilage tear, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports. 

Budinger missed four months last season and underwent surgery on the same injury. This time, Dr. James Andrews removed the lateral meniscus cartilage rather than repairing it. 

Budinger does not have a current timetable to return for Minnesota. It is likely going to be a couple months before he can play.


Chase Budinger likely needs knee surgery


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2013) Timberwolves forward Chase Budinger's season has already gotten off to a poor start, after the team announced he has cartilage damage in his left knee. Budinger is set to visit Dr. James Andrew the week after training camp opens for a consultation, after which he will likely require surgery.

Budinger was forced to miss 59 games due to a torn meniscus in the same knee last season, and it is not clear if the injuries are related. At this point, there is no timeline for his return, but Budinger will almost certainly not be ready by the start of the season. Newly-signed Corey Brewer is likely the frontrunner to start at small forward now.


Budinger returns for three years


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2013) Chase Budinger did not have the expected impact in his first season with the Timberwolves, largely thanks to injuries. His disappointing season did not stop the Wolves from bringing him back into the fold as a free agent, as he agreed to return on a three-year contract worth $16 million. The deal is expected to be made official Wednesday when the free agency moratorium comes to an end.
