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.

Pekovic, Beasley expected to play tonight at Golden State

Wolves starting center Nikola Pekovic, reserve forward Michael Beasley and reserve guard J.J. Barea all are expected to try to play tonight at Golden State, where the Wolves will try to end a three-game road losing streak.

Pekovic had both hurting ankles taped extra before the game and said there's no time for recovery in this condensed 66-game season so he will play on.

Beasley limped around the locker room on his hurting big toe, but said he'll "give it a go."

And Barea had the thumb on his right shooting hand taped after he jammed it Sunday in Sacramento and said it probably couldn't hurt the way he has been shooting it anyway.

The Warriors will retire Chris Mullin's No. 17 jersey at halftime tonight, so be ready for about a half-hour intermission break.
