It appears that the Wolves will start Luc Mbah a Moute in place of the absent Kevin Love tonight at Target Center, while Dwyane Wade is likely starting for the Heat. None of this is good news for a Wolves team that needs all the wins it can get.

My guess is the Wolves will start with Mbah a Moute on James, Brewer on Wade, and Martin on Shane Battier, but we'll see how they play it.

The Heat are coming off two straight losses--to the Pistons and Bulls--following a ten game winning streak. LeBron James is playing shockingly great basketball, so at least we get to enjoy that.

Expected lineups:

Heat

Mario Chalmers
Dwyane Wade
Shane Battier
LeBron James
Chris Bosh

Wolves

Ricky Rubio
Kevin Martin
Corey Brewer
Prince Luc Mbah a Moute
Nikola Pekovic
