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.

Some injury news tonight in Miami:

* Kevin Martin is a late scratch because of a sore right foot and will not play tonight against the Heat.

J.J. Barea will start in the backcourt alongside Ricky.

* Nikola Pekovic won't play again, so Gorgui Dieng gets the start at center again.

* Dwyane Wade and Greg Oden won't play for the Heat, but Ray Allen will try to play after missing five games because of a stomach virus.

Also, Dante Cunningham was charged in Hennepin County court this afternoon with a felony count of domestic assault by strangulation.

The details aren't pretty. Here's our story on the Star Tribune web site.
