Preview: This is the third meeting in 11 days between the teams. Of course, the Timberwolves' victories in two preseason games don't really count. But after Tuesday, they won't see each other again until either the NBA Finals or next season. The Bucks opened their season Monday with a 96-95 loss at Charlotte. Seven of the 15 players on the Bucks roster are new this season.
Players to watch: Bucks C Andrew Bogut had 17 points and nine rebounds Monday. He averaged 12.8 points, 11.1 rebounds and a league-leading 2.6 blocks last season but is coming off April elbow surgery. His presence means the Wolves likely will rely more on Darko Milicic, who will be used this season according to the evening's matchup. ... After ranking 24th last season in three-point shooting, the Bucks added prolific shooters Mike Dunleavy and Stephen Jackson.
Injuries: Wolves C Nikola Pekovic (groin), G Martell Webster (microdiscectomy surgery) and F Brad Miller (microfracture knee surgery) are all out. The Bucks list no injuries.
