Are we holding out hope?
WHO: The Minnesota Timberwolves host the Dallas Mavericks
WHAT: Ricky Ruuuuuubio *pinches cheeks*
WHERE: Target Center, Minneapolis, MN
WHEN: 6:00pm CT
HOW: FSSW | NBALP
THE STORY: The Mavericks will be without Shawn Marion tonight due to a calf injury suffered in the win over Houston. They just waived Dominique Jones yesterday, and Anthony Morrow is still suffering from a hip issue. The sparse team will take on a Minnesota squad who has dropped 7 of their last 8 games in the hopes of inching towards the last seed in the west. For the Wolves, Nikola Pekovic (abdominal strain), Kevin Love (broken hand), Andrei Kirilenko (strained left calf) and Brandon Roy (knee surgery) are all expected to be out for the fifth straight game. Say hi to the folks over at Canis Hoopus.
