Minnesota Timberwolves backup center Ronny Turiaf will miss the rest of the season recovering from arthroscopic surgery on his right hip. The surgery went as planned Tuesday in New York and the team announced after that Turiaf won’t return this season. Turiaf appeared in only two games this season, his second with the Timberwolves. They’re his seventh NBA team in 10 seasons in the league.
The Timberwolves will contemplate their options now that veteran center Ronny Turiaf won’t play again this season after he underwent surgery to repair his hip in New York City on Tuesday. Turiaf’s contract with a $1.6 million salary expires after this season, which means the Wolves eventually will waive him to clear a roster spot.
