Saunders misses game with flu

Minneapolis, MN (Sports Network) – Minnesota Timberwolves’ head coach Flip
Saunders missed his team’s 104-87 win over 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, manned the sidelines in Saunders’ absence.

Minnesota has now won four in a row and is 23-19 on the season.
