Preseason: Pacers vs. Wolves

The preseason comes to Minnesota tonight as the Wolves take on the Pacers at the Target Center at 7:00pm CST.  
Timberwolves coach Randy Wittman appeared a little
frustrated Monday. Just when he thought he was closer to getting his
point guards back, setbacks struck.
Randy Foye and Sebastian Telfair both took a step
back during practice when they aggravated injuries. Foye bumped his
right knee, which has been bothered by tendinitis, and Telfair tweaked
his sprained left ankle. Wittman said both players are doubtful for
tonight’s exhibition game against the Indiana Pacers, the Wolves’ first
game this preseason at Target Center.
Telfair, Al Jefferson and the three other Celtics acquired in the
Garnett trade have played on the Target Center floor before, but never
coming out of the home team’s dressing room.
"First time," Jefferson said. "I’ve been waiting on this all preseason.
When I used to play here, it was always a tough crowd. Now I’m looking
forward to the fans to show me love like they used to show love for
their team when I played here with the Celtics."
Mike Wells/Indy Star on the Pacers lineup tonight 
He said forward Shawne Williams will sit out the final two preseason
games since Williams is suspended for the first three regular-season
games after his arrest last month.
Forward Jermaine O’Neal will miss his third straight game tonight with
a swollen left knee. Center David Harrison (ankle) will be a game-time
decision. Center Troy Murphy is still out with a strained Achilles.
