Randy Foye returned to action the other day from his knee injury, but it may take a while until he is back to his usual self.
"It's going to take time," Foye said. "I missed half of the season. I know, this whole year I probably won't be 100 percent. It's going to take probably the whole offseason leading up to next year. But the main thing that's concerning me about this year's team is learning how to win."
Foye can use the rest of the season as a building block for next season, as Minnesota is pretty much out of playoff contention anyway. The Wolves have won five of their last eight, but they are still 10-37 overall, second worse in the NBA to the Miami Heat. They have some young pieces to build around including Foye and leading scorer (21.5) and rebounder (12.3) Al Jefferson. The Timberwolves are 2-2 since Foye's return, and he is averaging 6.8 points in 19.8 minutes.
