Seattle, WA (Sports Network) – The Minnesota Timberwolves put forward Eddie
Griffin on the injured list with a broken left hand prior to Friday’s game at
Seattle.

In a related move, the Timberwolves activated forward Mark Madsen from the
injured list.

Griffin fractured the second metacarpal bone during the first half of
Thursday’s 92-86 road loss to the Los Angeles Clippers. The third-year pro is
averaging 7.9 points, 6.2 rebounds and 21.1 minutes in 52 games this season.

Madsen underwent surgery on January 8 after breaking his left thumb against
the Philadelphia 76ers a day earlier. The 6-9 veteran averaged 2.0 points and
3.1 rebounds in 31 games, including 13 starts, prior to the injury.
