Note the unusual start time as the Wolves are in Atlanta to face the East leading Hawks. As we discussed in this morning's thread, the Hawks have put together a fantastically balanced roster that plays well at both ends of the floor and does't rely on any one player to drive them offensively.

This is a huge mismatch on paper, as the Wolves are languishing at the bottom of the league, but hopefully they can be competitive today, if only so that we get to see the Hawks play throughout the 48.  The Wolves will have to pound the glass hard to stay in this one, and hopefully get Nikola Pekovic going inside.

For the Wolves, Zach LaVine (elbow) and Anthony Bennett (knee), along with Kevin Martin are listed as questionable.

UPDATE: LaVine and Bennett are both available tonight. No Martin, Rubio, or Muhammad.
