Pekovic, Roy, Barea all out of tonight's game

Nikola Pekovic (ankle), Brandon Roy (knee), and JJ Barea (foot) will all sit out tonight's game against Charlotte.

Rubio, Love and Budinger obviously are all still out as well. This leaves the Wolves quite shorthanded, with only 9 healthy players....and only 6 of whom Adelman really trusts. Despite Charlotte's severe lack of post scoring, it's probably not a good idea to match up Kirilenko or Cunningham with 7-footers Brendan Haywood and BJ Mullens. Minnesota will need to maximize their creativity and take some extreme measures in the short term to survive the injury plague that has hit the team.
