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.

Barea, Love will play, Darko inactive

Posted by: Jerry Zgoda under Wolves injury report, Wolves pre-game Updated: March 12, 2012 - 8:42 PM

J.J. Barea sat at his locker before tonight's game at Phoenix with his left foot up on a chair and a big icebag wrapped around his ankle.

He says he'll play anyway against the Suns.

So, too, will Kevin Love, who still has a sore back and hopes to get it some rest on two rare consecutive days without a game on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Darko! is on the inactive list tonight and Anthony Randolph is not.

The only explanation so far is that it's a coach's decision.

If Randolph plays more than usual -- which means any -- could it be to show a potential trade partner that he indeed does live and breathe before Thrusday's trade deadline?
