MINNEAPOLIS -- A date for Minnesota Timberwolves center Ronny Turiaf's return from a fractured right elbow remains unclear.
In an earlier post Friday, 1500ESPN.com reported the Wolves were targeting having Turiaf back in potentially two weeks, according to a source with direct knowledge of the situation.
However, in a conversation Friday with Turiaf prior to tipoff against the Brooklyn Nets, he insisted he has been given no indication of any sort of timetable from team doctors. Turiaf, 30, said he is in a "wait and see" situation as he gradually continues to regain movement in his injured right arm.
Turiaf has been out since Nov. 1 when he suffered a radial head fracture after getting tangled up in low post against an Oklahoma City defender.
Turiaf has been cautious in his rehab. He is not wearing a cast or heavy wrap over the injury, but he said his right elbow is still tender. On Friday morning during Wolves shootaround, he was able to work with a medicine ball to help build strength in his arm.
