Timberwolves’ Olowokandi activated from injured list

Minneapolis, MN (Sports Network) – The Minnesota Timberwolves Friday activated
center Michael Olowokandi from the injured list. Olowokandi has not played
since undergoing right knee surgery in December.

The first overall pick in 1998, Olowokandi is averaging 6.4 points and 3.7
rebounds in 15 games this season.

The 7-foot-1 Olowokandi signed with the Timberwolves as a free agent in
the offseason after spending five campaigns with the Los Angeles Clippers.

To make room on the roster, the club opted not to re-sign guard Darrick
Martin. Martin’s second 10-day contract expired following Thursday’s win over
Sacramento.
