Timberwolves place Hudson on injured list

Minneapolis, MN (Sports Network) – The Minnesota Timberwolves placed guard
Troy Hudson on the injured list Wednesday with a left ankle sprain.

Hudson, who will miss a minimum of five games, has averaged 7.5 points and 2.4
assists in just 29 games this season. He had already missed a total of 45
games in 2003-04 with a right ankle injury.

In a related move, the Timberwolves signed free agent guard Darrick Martin for
the remainder of the season. Martin, who spent several brief stints with
Minnesota in 1995, is a veteran of eight NBA seasons and 399 games with five
teams.

Hudson is eligible to return to the lineup April 10.
