The Timberwolves go for their second straight preseason win tonight at 7pm against the Milwaukee Bucks and will be televised on FSN Plus. It will be played at the Sanford Pentagon in Sioux Falls, home of the Sioux Falls Skyforce of the NBDL, and will also feature some NCAA Division II hoops matchups this year.
While we have yet to hear official word, it's very likely that Kevin Martin will not see the floor tonight. He only got 6 minutes of action last night, and was pulled early due to a sore achilles.
The Bucks are having more troubling issues, especially with their big men. The Bucks will be without Ersan Ilyasova, who suffered a sprained right ankle Tuesday night in a preseason loss to the Cavaliers. He joins Ekpe Udoh (knee) and Zaza Pachulia (achilles), who have both been absent from recent Bucks lineups.
Chris Johnson is now the only member of the Wolves who has yet to play; look for him to get some minutes tonight. Both Robbie Hummel and Shabazz Muhammad sat for the entirety of last night's game as well, and if Martin is indeed out tonight, some minutes might open up for the pair of rookie wings. It could also open up some time for A.J. Price, who impressed in the preseason opener against CSKA Moscow, but didn't play last night.
As Eric mentioned yesterday, please, no pics, no gifs, and no links to illegal streams. Thank you.
