Jerry Zgoda missed the entire Kevin Garnett era, but he's back covering the Timberwolves after working the beat for their first four seasons two decades ago. In between, he covered a bit of everything: Gopher men's and women's basketball and NCAA athletics, golf, outdoor recreation, sports media and a little Vikings and Twins.

Brewer to start at small forward against Magic

Posted by: Jerry Zgoda under Wolves players, Wolves pre-game Updated: October 30, 2013 - 6:07 PM

Puffs of white smoke floated from the Target Center stacks early this evening. We have a decision:

Corey Brewer will start tonight at small forward, and Rick Adelman didn't even use one of those coins Flip Saunders is giving everybody today to decide.

Adelman said he reserves the right to change that starting lineup when the Wolves play Oklahoma City on Friday and at New York on Sunday, but for now Corey is your starter.

"He's played well with that first group," Adelman said. "We want to get off to a good start, use his energy and we'll go from there."

The Magic will start second-year Moe Harkless at small forward. It only gets harder this week after that.

"We only have (Kevin) Durant and (Carmelo) Anthony after that," Adelman said. "This is just the start of 82. We'll figure it out."

Adelman said he's not sure who he uses at small forward once Brewer comes out. He said that will depend on the Magic lineup: If they go small, he said he could counter by playing three guards.
