What you need to know about the Timberwolves
Minnesota has bounced back from four losses in a five-game stretch with consecutive road wins at Denver and Houston. The Timberwolves are trying to avoid the Western Conference play-in tournament, but they are 1.5 games back of Utah for sixth place in the standings. They are six games ahead of the Clippers for seventh place, so they cannot finish worse than their current position.
Anthony Edwards scored 33 points and Karl-Anthony Towns added 28 in the win over Houston on Sunday. Guards Patrick Beverley (ankle) and Malik Beasley (ankle) have both been upgraded to probable for Tuesday night’s game, while Jaden McDaniels (ankle) is doubtful. The Timberwolves have covered the spread in seven of their last eight home games.
What you need to know about the Wizards
Washington had won four of its last five games prior to a 144-102 beatdown at the hands of Boston on Sunday. The Wizards were coming off an impressive 135-103 win over Dallas last Friday before having a clunker at Boston. They have already been eliminated from playoff contention, so they are simply trying to build towards the future at this point.
The Wizards are expected to be without forward Kyle Kuzma, who is set to miss his 10th straight game with right knee tendinitis. Rui Hachimura has replaced Kuzma in a starting lineup that is already playing without leading scorer Bradley Beal (wrist). Washington has covered the spread in six of its last seven games against Minnesota.
