The preseason comes to Minnesota tonight as the Wolves take on the Pacers at the Target Center at 7:00pm CST.
Timberwolves coach Randy Wittman appeared a little frustrated Monday. Just when he thought he was closer to getting his point guards back, setbacks struck.
Randy Foye and Sebastian Telfair both took a step back during practice when they aggravated injuries. Foye bumped his right knee, which has been bothered by tendinitis, and Telfair tweaked his sprained left ankle. Wittman said both players are doubtful for tonight's exhibition game against the Indiana Pacers, the Wolves' first game this preseason at Target Center.
Telfair, Al Jefferson and the three other Celtics acquired in the Garnett trade have played on the Target Center floor before, but never coming out of the home team's dressing room.
"First time," Jefferson said. "I've been waiting on this all preseason. When I used to play here, it was always a tough crowd. Now I'm looking forward to the fans to show me love like they used to show love for their team when I played here with the Celtics."
Mike Wells/Indy Star on the Pacers lineup tonight
He said forward Shawne Williams will sit out the final two preseason games since Williams is suspended for the first three regular-season games after his arrest last month.
Forward Jermaine O'Neal will miss his third straight game tonight with a swollen left knee. Center David Harrison (ankle) will be a game-time decision. Center Troy Murphy is still out with a strained Achilles.
