The Timberwolves have had the last 4 days to rest their injuries and just at least one injured player back tonight when they host Denver at 7pm, pregame on WJON at 6:30.  Center Nikola Pekovic returns tonight after suffering a sprained ankle more than a week ago in a win over Dallas.

Point guard J.J. Barea (foot sprain) will be a game-time decision Wednesday night.  Barea has missed more than 2 weeks with the injury and could come back and play a limited role behind starting point guard Luke Ridnour.

The Timberwolves continue to play without Kevin Love (broken hand), Ricky Rubio (torn ACL), Brandon Roy (knee surgery), and Chase Budinger (torn meniscus).  Love is expected to return in early December, Rubio should be back late December to early January, Roy should be back in 1 month and Budinger is out 3-4 months.

The Wolves are 5-4 while Denver is 5-6.
