Finch to have surgery

(Minneapolis, MN) — Minnesota Timberwolves head coach Chris Finch will have surgery on his torn right patellar tendon. E-S-P-N is reporting that the procedure will take place today. Finch suffered the injury when Minnesota guard Mike Conley Jr. was bumped into him by Phoenix Suns guard Devin Booker in Game Four of their First Round series on Sunday. It is uncertain if Finch will be able to coach the team from the sidelines to begin the second found. If he cannot go, assistant Micah Nori would man the sidelines with Finch communicating with the team from the locker room. Minnesota takes on the Denver Nuggets in Game One on Saturday. The tip time will be either 6 P-M or 8:30 P-M.
