The Wolves will of course be without Jimmy Butler, but the team should otherwise be at full-strength. The Wolves whittled away at it right before the break and kept up the comeback after halftime.

Karl-Anthony Towns' level of activity in the Timberwolves offense has been all over the board this season.
