The Minnesota Timberwolves announced point guard Jonny Flynn would join the teams NBA Developmental League affiliate Sioux Falls Skyforce while he continues to rehabilitate his surgically repaired left hip.
Timberwolves coach Kurt Rambis said at practice on Tuesday that ideally Flynn would play more than one game with the Skyforce before returning to the Timberwolves. The Skyforce begin an eight game homestand this Friday against Iowa and play a back-to-back against Reno on Saturday.
Flynn, who had hip surgery on July 27th and has not appeared in a Wolves uniform this season, is eligible for a rehab stint in the D-League because of an NBA rule that allows first and second-year players to be assigned to a team affiliate a maximum of three times each season.
