Coach Rick Adelman says the seldom-used Muhammad will benefit from playing big minutes rather than sitting on the bench for the Timberwolves. The 14th overall pick in the June draft has played in only 11 of Minnesota's 32 games this season. He has yet to play 10 minutes in a game.
Analysis: Muhammad is averaging 1.1 points. He was initially resistant to the idea of playing in the lower league. But Adelman and President Flip Saunders say it's the best thing for his development. Muhammad will likely play at least four games before potentially rejoining the Timberwolves. He averaged 17.9 points in his lone season at UCLA.

The rookie transition program is a four-day seminar that is held to help teach young players about making the jump from college, or overseas, to the NBA.
Analysis: Muhammad was sent home after bringing a female visitor to his hotel room Tuesday night. Players are required to get approval for guests from program officials. Muhammad also will be fined for the infraction, which was first reported by USA Today. He will have to go through the program again next summer. Muhammad was chosen 14th overall by the Timberwolves in June after one season at UCLA.
