The Timberwolves open the season Wednesday night against Detroit. Jim says he expects either D'Angelo Russell or Ricky Rubio to be on the floor for Minnesota at all times. He says they will play together some but not a lot. Jim expects first overall pick Anthony Edwards to begin the season coming off the bench with Juancho Hernangomez, Karl-Anthony Towns, Josh Okogie, Malik Beasley and D'Angelo Russell as the starting 5. Listen to Tuesday's podcast below.
The Gopher men's basketball team will play the rest of the season without forward Jarvis Omersa. Jarvis is citing health concerns due to Covid-19 as the reason to opt-out of the season.
