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.

Kevin Love, Kevin Martin return for Wolves at Sacramento

The Wolves are getting their starting Kevins -- Love and Martin, of course -- back in the lineup for tonight's game at Sacramento.

Love is expected to start after he missed Friday's 112-110 victory over Houston because of a hypextended elbow injured two nights earlier against Chicago.

Martin is back after five games away because of what the team called a sore foot but which he said before tonight's game probably is some of the dreaded plantar fasciitis as well.

Meanwhile, Rudy Gay is out for the Kings and former Wolves forward Derrick Williams will start.

Just in time for Williams, who has a couple of his most active games against the Wolves this season.

In fact, since he scored 26 points against them at Target Center on March 16, Williams has scored 48 points in 12 games played -- exactly 4 points a game -- and didn't have more than eight points in any of those.

He played just five minutes -- none in the second half against a small opposing lineup -- and scored two  points in Saturday's loss to the Clippers in L.A.

Kings guard Isaiah Thomas is available to play after he missed the last 10 games because of a quad contusion.
