Kevin Love and Darko Milicic are here in Denver tonight -- they both worked out under team supervision before the game at Pepsi Center -- but won't play against the Nuggets.
It's quite likely, even though Kurt Rambis wouldn't flat-out say it, that you've seen the last of Love this season because of that groin injury.
Both are on the two-game trip not because either is expected to play Monday in Phoenix, but rather for reasons of team camaraderie with just three games left in the season.
Rambis will start Anthony Tolliver at power forward again tonight, with Beasley at small forward, Wes Johnson at guard and Nikola Pekovic at center against a Nuggets team that traded away its star player (Carmelo Anthony) and just might be better for it.
The Nuggets are back home tonight after losing last night 104-89 in Oklahoma City, their second loss to the Thunder in four days.
The two teams -- currently fourth and fifth in the West -- could meet in the playoffs' first round.
The Wolves, by the way, have lost 12 straight games with just three left to play.
