The Minnesota Timberwolves have increased optimism that Chris Finch will be able to sit near the team’s bench when their second round series against the Denver Nuggets begins on Saturday.

Finch underwent surgery on Wednesday to repair the ruptured patellar tendon in his right knee.

Finch led Thursday’s practice and walked around on crutches.

Assistant coach Micah Nori will take on a more active role with Finch’s mobility limited.
