Chase Budinger gets knee surgery.

A MRI showed serious cartilage damage in Budinger’s knee last week.

The Wolves forward met with Dr. James Andrews Monday and they both agreed surgery was the best option.

There’s no exact timetable for his return but it could be season ending. Wolves coach Rick Adelman is remaining optimistic.

“I just felt so bad for [Budinger],” Adelman said. “He’s the type of player who can really add to what we do offensively. I feel bad for him, and I really don’t want it to become a trend. With last year it really became a trend. We really want to see him get back as quick as possible.”

Rookie Shabazz Muhammad will likely see big minutes in Budinger’s absence.
