The Minnesota Timberwolves announced that point guard Jonny Flynn has been reassigned to the team's NBA Development League affiliate Sioux Falls Skyforce to continue his rehab from hip surgery.
This is by no means a set-back for Flynn, who scored eight points and tallied eight assists last Friday with the Skyforce before being recalled to the Wolves. Coach Kurt Rambis has said all along he wanted to see how Flynn's hip responds to back-to-back games, which Flynn will have the opportunity to play in Friday and Saturday night.
Per NBA rules, any first or second-year player can be assigned to a team's D-League affiliate up to three times per season. Flynn was recalled after last Friday's game with the Skyforce simply so he could practice and be around the Wolves team and trainers.
If Flynn can get past this latest test without any setbacks, he would presumably join the team ahead of next Tuesday's game at Golden State and a decision would be made at that point when he will make his 2010 debut with the Wolves.
