INJURY TO WATCH
Timberwolves point guard Aaron Brooks (personal matter) is questionable tonight, while shooting guard Jimmy Butler (knee) is out until early April. For the Spurs, small forward Danny Green (face) is probable to play tonight. Point guard Dejounte Murray (ankle) is questionable, while small forward Kawhi Leonard (quadriceps) has been ruled out.
The two meetings are split this season with each team winning and covering on their home floor. Minnesota enters with two wins in a row, downing Golden State at home 108-103 and Washington on the road by a count of 116-111. As for San Antonio, it has also won two in a row at home over Orlando (108-72) and New Orleans (98-93). Prior to the last couple games, the Spurs were in a big funk and now Murray could be out tonight. I like the duo of Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins to be effective tonight against a Spurs team that is plenty flawed this season.
