Projected Starting Lineups
Timberwolves: Jarrett Culver - Malik Beasley – Josh Okogie – Juancho Hernangomez – Karl-Anthony Towns
Clippers: Landry Shamet – Paul George – Kawhi Leonard – Patrick Patterson – Ivica Zubac
Timberwolves: D’Angelo Russell Out (Quad), Jake Layman Out (Toe), Evan Turner Out (Personal)
Clippers: Patrick Beverley Out (Groin), Marcus Morris Out (Trade)
Both teams will be short-handed tonight, as the Wolves be without new starting point guard D’Angelo Russell while the Clippers won’t have their own starting point guard, Pat Beverley, or their new addition, Marcus Morris. Russell’s loss should hurt the Wolves a lot more, as their largely new roster will lack chemistry in the first place even without that talent missing. The Clippers will probably have to give a fair amount of minutes to non-rotation players as well with Beverley and Morris out, but that should hurt them a lot less.
