On today’s pod, we, unfortunately, need to discuss how COVID has struck the Minnesota Timberwolves. Included in the episode is audio from Gersson Rosas’ Friday evening press conference, in which he describes the 36 hours leading up to Friday evening’s game being postponed and how this is all the more troubling given Karl-Anthony Towns’ involvement.
After that, we get into how the roster is going to have to cope without their starting power forward and center for the foreseeable future.
- How far does Ryan Saunders take small-ball? Some small-ball power forward for Anthony Edwards?
- What is the starting five? Does Ed Davis move back to starting in KAT’s place? Does that mean Jarred Vanderbilt can’t start, too? Or do Naz Reid and Vanderbilt start instead?
- Does this mean more or less time together for D’Angelo Russell and Ricky Rubio?
