Predictions

The Timberwolves are in great form right now and have a relatively healthier squad available with them. On paper, the Timberwolves have a slight edge over the Warriors, but given the form Steph Curry is in, don’t count out the Dubs.

Golden State Warriors- Injury updates and lineup prediction

After two impressive wins, the Warriors were absolutely humiliated by the Dallas Mavericks who blew the Dubs 133-103. The Warriors’ offense looked toothless and even went on a 0-28 run at one point of the game.

The Warriors will miss some key players due to injury concerns. Klay Thompson and James Wiseman are out for the rest of the season. Center Eric Paschall is sidelined with a hip injury. Guard Damion Lee is out as he has to follow the league’s health and safety protocols while Kelly Oubre Jr. is doubtful as he recovers from a wrist injury.

The Warriors will look to come back to winning ways with a victory against the Timberwolves who are having a nightmare season.

Minnesota Timberwolves- Injury updates and lineup prediction

While they may be out of the playoff contention this season, the Timberwolves meanwhile have put on a good run of form recently. After two wins against the top-seeded Jazz, the Wolves defeated the Rockets 114-107 in their most recent game.

The Timberwolves are finally showing how good they really can be when they are fully fit, especially with the return of D’Angelo Russell. They will only be missing Malik Beasley through a hamstring injury and might be a week or two away from making his return.

The Timberwolves will look to build on their winning streak and will be confident of their chances against the depleted Warriors team.
