Luke Ridnour added 15 points for Minnesota.  The Wolves shot 46 percent while Dallas shot 36 percent.  Minnesota played without point guard J.J. Barea (foot sprain), shooting guard Brandon Roy (sore right knee) and guard/forward Chase Budinger (torn meniscus).  Barea and Roy could return Wednesday while Budinger is out about 2 months.

The Timberwolves are already playing without the top two players, Kevin Love (broken hand), and point guard Ricky Rubio (torn ACL).  Love is expected back in early December while Rubio could be back as early as mid December.

The Timberwolves play at home against Charlotte at 7pm Wednesday, pregame on WJON at 6:30.
