We knew what happened to Chase Budinger — he tore the lateral meniscus in his left knee Saturday while playing the Bulls.

What we didn’t know was how long he will be out.

Now we do, via Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports and the NBC Sports Network.

After knee surgery today, Minnesota Timberwolves forward Chase Budinger will miss three months, league source tells Y! Sports.

The Timberwolves are injury ravaged this season — Kevin Love, Ricky Rubio, Brandon Roy, J.J. Barea, Budinger and after Monday night you can add Nikola Pekovic and his ankle to the list.

All this has the T-Wolves considering adding to the roster.
