Injury Report: Cleveland point guard Derrick Rose is targeting a mid-January return from a sprained ankle. Iman Shumpert is out until late January after arhtroscopic knee surgery. Jeff Teague will miss another few weeks with a sprained MCL. .

Who We Like: Minnesota has won four straight home games and will certainly be up for this matchup.

I just happen to think the T-Wolves will score even more.
