MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The banged-up Minnesota Timberwolves aren't getting any reinforcements for their game against the Charlotte Bobcats.
Center Nikola Pekovic, shooting guard Brandon Roy and point guard J.J. Barea all were scratched for the game on Wednesday with injuries, leaving the Wolves with just nine healthy players.
Pekovic sprained his left ankle against Dallas on Monday night. Roy is missing his third straight game with a sore right knee and Barea will be out for the fourth straight game with a sprained left foot. Swingman Chase Budinger had surgery on his left knee this week and will miss three to four months.
On top of it all, All-Star Kevin Love (broken hand) and point guard Ricky Rubio (knee) have yet to play this season while they recover from injuries.
