The Minnesota Timberwolves today announced that guard Malcolm Lee will undergo two surgeries next week. On Monday, Jan. 14, Lee will undergo a right knee cartilage repair. The surgery will be performed by Dr. Jonathan Glashow at Midtown Surgical Center in New York. On Wednesday, Jan. 16, Lee will undergo surgery on his right hip. The surgery will be performed by Dr. Bryan Kelly at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York. Lee is expected to miss the remainder of the 2012-13 NBA season.
Kahn would not offer specifics on any individual players the team might target, but he did mention that he is looking for a type of player that is similar to Howard or Malcolm Lee. “I think when you think of the team right now,” Kahn said. “We’ve lost Malcolm—in all likelihood for the season—and we’ve lost Josh, who isn’t here right now. So when you think of that profile, somebody who is 6-foot-5, 6-foot-6, 6-foot-7, long-armed in Josh’s case, defensive-minded in Malcolm’s case, capable of helping us a little bit offensively in both guys’ case… we’re missing two people, not one. So I think that’s the profile of who we’re looking for. We’ll obviously move reasonably quickly, but we want to be thorough.”

The Timberwolves took 19 players with them to Las Vegas on Sunday for summer-league play, but surprisingly one of them wasn’t second-year guard Malcolm Lee. Lee won’t join teammates Derrick Williams and Wes Johnson to play five games in seven days in the Las Vegas Summer League. He is being held back to concentrate on strength and conditioning in preparation for training camp. The team cites Lee’s knee that was surgically repaired in December, although he did return to play the season’s final six weeks.
