Matchup to Watch
Andrew Wiggins vs. Gerald Henderson: Wiggins was the top pick in the 2014 draft. He is shooting 39 percent from the 3-point line so you can’t afford to leave him when the Timberwolves are on offense.
• Injuries have haunted the Timberwolves this season with Nikola Pekovic, Ricky Rubio and Kevin Martin all missing long stretches. Former Western Carolina star Kevin Martin (broken wrist) might play.
• The Hornets will again be without point guard Kemba Walker (sore left knee) and center Al Jefferson (groin strain). Jefferson hopes to play Wednesday against the Miami Heat.
• Brian Roberts will again get the start at point guard for the Hornets, with shooting guards Gary Neal and Lance Stephenson helping with the ball-handling.
• Because it’s a weekday daytime game, radio shifts from AM 610 to AM 1660.
