Minnesota Timberwolves rule out Karl-Anthony Towns and D’Angelo Russell for today’s game vs the L.A. Clippers. Towns and Russell have cleared the NBA’s league and safety protocols. But they are listed as out for “return to competition reconditioning.” – 3:16 PM

Karl-Anthony Towns and D’Angelo Russell are no longer in COVID protocols, the team says.
However, both players are listed as out for Monday’s game as they ramp back up their conditioning. Chris Finch said yesterday that Towns and Russell were trending towards a Wednesday return. – 3:11 PM

Without KAT + DLo Wolves lose in LA
Wolves 103, Lakers 108
Excited to talk about Nowell and Naz on the pod tomorrow — and what we’ve seen them be able to show in KAT + DLo’s absence.
I’ll be recording after tomorrow’s game against the Clippers. Maybe a LA split after tomorrow. – 11:54 PM
Kyle Goon @kylegoon
The Timberwolves, without Karl-Anthony Towns, have 15 offensive rebounds. We’ve got 8:18 left in the third quarter. The Lakers looked very slow on their feet to the ball for the opening minutes there. – 10:54 PM
Dave McMenamin @mcten
Russell Westbrook has 7 turnovers at the half. The Lakers are up 3 on a Wolves team missing Karl-Anthony Towns and D’Angelo Russell – 10:35 PM
Kyle Goon @kylegoon
Officially no KAT and no DLo. Also, Darren Collison will end his 10-day with a second straight inactive. pic.twitter.com/sCuP1SOM6R9:09 PM

My @PrizePicks for Wolves-Lakers
– Edwards over 23.5 pts
Ant in LA… Lotta usage available without KAT + DLo
– Beasley over 18.5 pts
Been bombin lately
– LeBron over 5.5 made FTs
Wolves foul a ton, particularly big wings
– Westbrook under 9.5 asts
Think Russ looks to attack – 8:57 PM
Christopher Hine @ChristopherHine
News from Chris Finch on Karl-Anthony Towns and D’Angelo Russell. He said they’re “at the end of their protocol run.” Have to get up to speed physically. Did not anticipate they’d be ready tomorrow vs. Clippers. Said Wednesday at home against OKC is a “more realistic target.” – 8:15 PM
