Minnesota Timberwolves swingman Martell Webster met with doctors Monday afternoon and has been cleared to return to game action, according to team officials.
Webster, who underwent back surgery in October, will provide a spark to a Wolves team that has been severely hampered by injuries of late.
It is unclear at this point if Webster will be available for Wednesday's home game against the Oklahoma City Thunder but we will learn more when coach Kurt Rambis meets with the media an hour-and-a-half prior to tip.
Elsewhere on the injury front, Darko Milicic is officially listed as day-to-day with a right quad contusion that kept him out of Monday's loss to the Knicks after just eight minutes.
Lastly, point guard Jonny Flynn remains out and is most likely heading back to NBDL affiliate Sioux Falls Skyforce to continue his rehab from hip surgery.
Flynn was recalled after last Friday's game with the Skyforce but Rambis has said he wants to see how Flynn responds to playing a back-to-back, which the Skyforce have scheduled for this Friday and Saturday night at home against Tulsa.
Per NBA rules, any first-or second-year player can be assigned to his team's D-League affiliate up to three teams per season.
If Flynn's second rehab stint goes well, his return to a Wolves uniform would be tentatively set for next Tuesday in Golden State in the middle of the Wolves grueling six-game road trip--the longest of the season.
