Sorry, I thought I’d posted this late this afternoon, but apparently it disappeared into the ether…

Al Jefferson was back at practice this afternoon, returning to practice shortly after it began this afternoon because his flight back from Florida was delayed.

He had been there since Thursday, arriving to see his ill grandmother just 30 minutes after he arrived.

Here’s a short story on Al and his grandmother for the paper and Web site:

One interesting tidbit is that the Wolves sent new player development coach Darrick Martin and a strength coach down to Florida to help him workout and stay in shape while he was away. One little, telling example about how David Kahn and Kurt Rambis are going about changing the franchise’s culture.

Al says he’s ready to play Wednesday against Houston at Target Center.
