The injuries started immediately and never stopped, keeping the Minnesota Timberwolves out of the playoffs for the ninth straight season. That's the longest active streak in the NBA.

Now they head into another summer of uncertainty. Owner Glen Taylor has yet to say if he will pick up the option on team president David Kahn's contract for next season. Rick Adelman will not decide on coming back as coach next year until doctors assure him that his wife's seizures are under control.

And the Timberwolves will likely have to fight to bring back center Nikola Pekovic, who will be a restricted free agent.

The Timberwolves finished the season 31-51. It's the first time they've won at least 30 games without Kevin Garnett on the roster.
