“They wanted to see if I could stay healthy, and I proved that I could,” said Hummel, who averaged 3.6 points and 3.8 rebounds in 15.5 minutes in five games in Las Vegas for the Timberwolves last year. “My knee feels great, 100 percent normal. I feel like I had a great season, and it helped me a lot. You practice so much, playing only one game a week, you’re bound to improve. Seeing the game from a different perspective and playing with different rules, it’s only going to make you better.” Post-Tribune

Ouch, again. Timberwolves second-round pick Robbie Hummel's knee problems continue. The guy who tore his ACL twice within 10 months in 2010 now has sustained a meniscus injury in his right knee while playing in Spain, according to the Spanish site familiaobradoirista.blogspot.com. Certainly, it's not on the same scale as those torn ACLs, but he is returning to the U.S. to have arthroscopic surgery and is expected to miss four to six weeks. Hummel signed to play in Spain this season with the Wolves' approval to continue his return from those two ACL injuries that caused him to miss the entire 2010-11 season. Minneapolis Star-Tribune

Hummel will participate on the Wolves' summer league team in Las Vegas and he even offered to tutor star point guard Ricky Rubio, who tore the ACL in his left knee in March, on how to recover from the injury. "Yeah," Hummel said with a chuckle. "I've been through it twice, so I think can give him some advice on that. It was unfortunate to watch him go down, but it's something you can come back from for sure." Minneapolis Star-Tribune
