Al Jefferson to Sit Out Two Games

by November 13, 2009

Big Al has been granted a short leave of absence to deal with a family matter: “Al Jefferson flew to Florida on Thursday morning, his mind on matters more important than an eight-game losing streak. The Wolves forward has been excused from the team’s home game tonight against Dallas and Saturday’s trip to Memphis to deal with a family member’s illness. Jefferson will return to the 1-8 Wolves next week, the team announced.”
