The Wolves had a night off in Miami last night.

This is gonna be quick cause we’re 30 minutes from tip as I write.

The Wolves have been bad on the road, are missing both Jeff Teague and Derrick Rose tonight, gave heavy minutes to Karl-Anthony Towns, Robert Covington and Andrew Wiggins on Friday in the loss to the Hawks, and had last night off in Miami. This is not a recipe for success, but hopefully they can overcome.

The Heat are without Goran Dragic, and possibly several other guys who are listed as questionable. They’ve been playing well as of late and have their record back to .500.

This is the start of a four game road trip, which continues tomorrow in New Orleans and concludes on January 2nd in Boston. The Wolves really need to get something out of this stretch, but it doesn’t set up well.

Expected Starters:

Heat

Rodney McGruder
Josh Richardson
Justise Winslow
James Johnson
Hassan Whiteside

Wolves

Tyus Jones
Andrew Wiggins
Robert Covington
Taj Gibson
Karl-Anthony Towns
