Saunders misses game with flu

Minneapolis, MN (Sports Network) – Minnesota Timberwolves’ head coach Flip
Saunders will miss Wednesday’s contest against the Atlanta Hawks at the Target
Center because of the flu.

Saunders, who is in his 10th season with the team, had never missed a game
prior to tonight. Assistant Randy Whitman, a former head coach of the
Cleveland Cavaliers, will man the sidelines in Saunders’ absence.

Minnesota has won three in a row and is 22-19 on the season.
