Minnesota Timberwolves coach Rick Adelman has been trying to keep a lid on his wife’s health issues that caused him to be away from the team for three weeks, preferring to deal with the situation privately while keeping his eye on the team from afar.

Mary Kay didn’t seem to understand why, so Rick Adelman relented on Tuesday, one day after he returned to the team from his hiatus. Rick Adelman said his wife is suffering from seizures and doctors still haven’t figured out what has been causing them.

”It’s just a process now,” Adelman said after practice. ”We don’t know why. We have no clue why it happened. No one can figure it out. Now it’s a matter of finding it out. How do you manage it? What do you do with it? How do you go forward? … The good thing is she’s home.”

Rick Adelman missed 11 games to be by Mary Kay’s side as she went through treatments and met with doctors. For a man who has spent more than two decades in the NBA diagnosing what is going wrong on the court and trying to figure out how to fix his teams’ problems, it’s been a frustrating process of searching for answers that have yet to come.
