Game Info

Wolves (4-9) at Pelicans (5-10)
8:30 pm CST
ESPN

The Wolves and Pels are on national TV tonight, and you can bet the Anthony Davis vs. Karl-Anthony Towns matchup will get plenty of play on the four-letter. But it has been the return of point guard Jrue Holiday and the play of Tim Frazier that has propelled the Pels on their current three game winning streak. The Wolves need a winning streak of their own, and tonight would be a good night to start one.

For more info on the Pels, see today’s preview.

Injuries

The Pelicans will be without Tyreke Evans and Quincy Pondexter. Alexis Ajinca is doubtful. Anthony Davis should be ready to go after scaring everyone by limping to the locker room last night against Atlanta, but he eventually returned.

The Wolves should have everyone available.
