Best as we can tell, the Wolves will put out a starting five tonight in Dallas that looks something like this:


C -- Big Pek

PF -- Derrick Williams

SF -- Andrei Kirilenko

SG -- Alexey Shved

PG -- Luke Ridnour

that's still not a bad starting five. And there is still some help on the bench with Dante Cunningham, Greg Stiemsma and co.

But assuming Brandon Roy doesn't play -- he's a game-time decision -- would you rather have that starting five and bench or roll all 48 minutes with the injured (albeit small) Wolves lineup?

C -- Kevin Love

PF -- Chase Budinger

SF -- Brandon Roy

SG -- J.J. Barea

PG -- Ricky Rubio

We at least think the teams would play a very close game, which says all you need to know about the Wolves' injuries so far this season.
