Terry Porter will fill in as the coach of the Minnesota Timberwolves for a second straight game Wednesday night in Oklahoma City as Rick Adelman tends to a personal matter.

The team announced prior to the game against the Thunder that Adelman would not be with the Timberwolves.

Porter was in charge for Minnesota's 108-103 victory against the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday night.
