Timberwolves center Darko Milicic has accepted his reduced role in coach Rick Adelman's offense - and he has no intentions of complaining.
Heading into Wednesday night's game against Detroit at Target Center, Milicic had more turnovers (6) than baskets (4) in the Wolves' past five games.
Things didn't go any better for Milici during the Wolves' 93-85 victory over the Pistons. He injured his toe after playing the first seven minutes and spent the rest of the game on the bench, finishing scoreless on 0-for-2 shooting with one rebound.
"I can't talk about my offense because it really doesn't exist right now," Milicic said. "I'm just a defensive player, but I'm OK with that. We're playing better and winning some games. That's the important thing."
Milicic is 4 of 19 shooting from the floor this season, and he has seen limited playing time in the fourth quarter.
Adelman said he has made significant changes to the Wolves' offense, relying more on pick-and-roll situations, making Milicic more of a screener for teammates than a scorer.
