Ronny Turiaf has fractured elbow
Turiaf was injured Friday night in Minnesota's victory over Oklahoma City when he took a nasty spill after getting tangled up with Nick Collison. The Wolves initially called it a contusion. But an MRI on Saturday revealed the fracture.
Turiaf will not need surgery. But the team says he will be re-evaluated next week before they can determine how long he will be out. It's likely to be at least a few weeks, which puts a dent in the Timberwolves' frontcourt depth.
