05:12 PM ET 03.22 | Minnesota Timberwolves forward Chase Budinger returned to the lineup on Thursday for the first time since tearing the lateral meniscus in his left knee in November, and after 17 minutes of action he said he still felt nervous about testing the knee "I was still a little nervous attacking the basket and I got tired legs there, especially in the second half. But all in all, the knee felt good out there. I felt my wind was pretty good, more my legs just getting tired out there. You saw that with me shooting an airball." However, head coach Rick Adelman told the Minneapolis Star Tribune he wants Budinger to stay in attack mode and keep shooting from three-point range: "He better," Adelman said before the game. "We're going to set some type of record for futility in that area. I'll let him shoot whatever he wants to shoot from the three-point area because I know he???s going to make it."
