Injury Report: Jimmy Butler (finger) is probable to play tonight for the Timberwolves but Nemanja Bjelica (foot) is questionable.

They're also just 1-4 against the spread in their last five home games, are winless at the betting window at 0-4  in their last four games playing on two days of rest, and are a brutal 1-10 against the spread in their last 11 games after scoring 100 points or more in their previous contest.
