January 6, 2015 Updates

Minnesota coach Flip Saunders missed the Timberwolves' game against Denver on Monday night because of an illness. Saunders has been battling the bug that has circulated through the team for a few days and was hopeful he could make it to the game after skipping the morning shootaround. But by Monday afternoon it became clear he wasn't feeling well enough to coach, so assistant Sam Mitchell took over. USA Today Sports

With star Kevin Love’s future in Minnesota in doubt, the Wolves now will resume a search process that has included interviews with, among others, former Toronto coach Sam Mitchell, who is a former Wolves forward, and Lionel Hollins, whom Joerger replaced in Memphis last summer. Joerger, 40, grew up in Staples, Minn., attended college in Moorhead and labored in basketball’s minor leagues — where he won five titles in seven years — for a decade before the Grizzlies hired him as an assistant coach in 2007 and promoted him to the head coach’s job a year ago.
