Timberwolves Need Their Groove Back, And Fast

The Minnesota Timberwolves would probably have to go 20 and 10, or maybe even 22 and 8 for the rest of the way to make the playoffs. The task is again becoming daunting, and forward Corey Brewer is painfully aware. “We need a win before All-Star break. We got a lot of injuries, man,” Brewer said. “It’s tough when you have injuries.” They are indeed a team riddled with current injuries, and frustrated by another sub-par season. Healthy or not, the Wolves cannot get stops on defense.

With Pekovic Gone, Wolves In Pain

Nikola Pekovic was no longer wearing a walking boot on his injured ankle at Monday’s practice, but Minnesota Timberwolves coach Rick Adelman still says he has “no clue” when his big man might return. One thing is clear: they need him back as soon as possible. Kevin Love was almost unstoppable Saturday night with 43 points and 19 rebounds, but that wasn’t enough to pull off a win.

Ricky Rubio Searches For The Magic He’s Lost

The Minnesota Timberwolves are struggling, and Ricky Rubio puts a lot of the responsibility on his shoulders. Rubio is shooting just 34.6 percent this season and scoring 8.6 points per game. Those numbers are the lowest of his short career. He had five turnovers and was benched for the fourth quarter of a home loss to the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday. The magic that made him one of the most exciting players in the NBA when he arrived from Spain has been absent this season while the Timberwolves have started a disappointing 18-20.
