We knew what happened to Chase Budinger — he tore the lateral meniscus in his left knee Saturday while playing the Bulls.

What we didn’t know was how long he will be out.

Now we do, via Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports and the NBC Sports Network.


The Timberwolves are injury ravaged this season — Kevin Love, Ricky Rubio, Brandon Roy, J.J. Barea, Budinger and after Monday night you can add Nikola Pekovic and his ankle to the list.

If you’re a Knicks fan, the positive is that at least Kristaps Porzingis tried to make a play.

But he was not going to stop the athletic Bradley Beal with a full head of steam, and the result was a Beal dunking over Porzingis as he tries to block the attempt.

Beal wasn’t sharp, scoring 12 points on 5-of-14 shooting. The Knicks has an efficient Carmelo Anthony and that got them the win.
