ATLANTA (AP) The Atlanta Hawks signed guard Jannero Pargo to a 10-day contract before facing the Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday.

Injuries have depleted Atlanta's roster at guard with Lou Williams out the season and Devin Harris nursing a sprained left ankle.

Rookie John Jenkins made his first career start as guards DeShawn Stevenson (right knee) and Anthony Morrow (back) were game-time decisions.

The Timberwolves are still without coach Rick Adelman, who is tending to his sick wife. Forward Kevin Love (hand), center Nikola Pekovic (thigh) and guard Alexey Shved missed the game. Dante Cunningham (flu) was a game-time decision.

Pargo, a journeyman in his ninth NBA season, most recently played seven games for the Washington Wizards. In 50 games with Atlanta last season, Pargo averaged 5.6 points and 1.9 assists.
