MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Minnesota Timberwolves backup center Ronny Turiaf will miss the rest of the season recovering from arthroscopic surgery on his right hip.

The surgery went as planned Tuesday in New York and the team announced after that Turiaf won’t return this season.

Turiaf appeared in only two games this season, his second with the Timberwolves. They’re his seventh NBA team in 10 seasons in the league.

The Wolves are already missing starters Ricky Rubio (ankle), Nikola Pekovic (foot, wrist) and Kevin Martin (wrist) for the long term. Backup point guard Mo Williams has missed the last six games with a back injury.
