The Wolves opened training camp with a nearly four-hour practice in Mankato on Tuesday, after which former All Star guard Brandon Roy declared himself feeling "pretty good." Coach Rick Adelman watched Roy complete the workout, including competing in a 5-on-5 workout when Adelman wanted him to shut down for the day, and went one step further. "Brandon looked great," Adelman said. "He just knows how to play, even defensively. He has been through it all." Roy said he expects to participate fully in Wednesday's second day of camp, but Adelman didn't sound quite so sure about that. "We're going to have to be cautious with him," Adelman said. "Like tomorrow, it will be interesting to see all these guys who have been hurt, how they respond tomorrow. After the first day, they're going to be a little sore. But Brandon, he can flat-out score. He's a smart player. We just have to monitor him and make sure we are cautious with him and not push him too much." Roy played on even when his coach didn't really want him to do so on Tuesday.
