Minnesota Timberwolves Notes, Quotes 2009-12-14

Minnesota Timberwolves Notes, Quotes 2009-12-14--Wolves forward Ryan Gomes' hot streak has been interrupted by an ankle injury. He left Saturday's game after he hurt his ankle in a fall that left him down on the floor while action went up the court and back down again until play was stopped.

An X-ray taken at Arco Arena was negative, but he did not return to the game and the team listed him as "day-to-day."

His streak of double-digit scoring games ended at six when he scored four points Friday against the Lakers in Los Angeles. On Saturday in Sacramento, he played just eight minutes and scored two points before getting hurt.

--A Timberwolves coach came back to the arena he once called home.

And it wasn't Kurt Rambis.

One night after the Los Angeles Lakers welcomed new Wolves coach Kurt Rambis back to Staples Center, Reggie Theus returned Saturday night to Arco Arena, where for many years he played, coached and was a television commentator for the Sacramento Kings.

This time, there was no pregame ceremony, no sentimental video montage that ended with "Always a King," as Rambis' tribute with the Lakers had finished the night before.

"Oh no, I doubt that will happen," Theus said before Saturday's game. "I doubt that very seriously, for a lot of different reasons."

The Kings fired Theus last winter, 24 games into his second season as the team's head coach. Before Saturday's game, he visited with Kings employees he knew when he played for the franchise when it first moved from Kansas City to Sacramento in 1985 and with players he coached last season.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "I took a quick glance. My son had it, took it home. I don't have it now. It's probably the last I'll ever see of it." -- Wolves coach Kurt Rambis, about receiving his eighth NBA championship ring from the Lakers on Friday.
