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.

Counting down: Wolves play season's final road game tonight at Detroit

Posted by: Jerry Zgoda under Wolves injury report, Wolves pre-game Updated: April 19, 2012 - 6:05 PM

The Wolves play the season's final road game tonight against a Pistons team that has lost three of its last four, six of its last eight and is playing its third game in three nights.

Of course, they also absolutely clobbered Cleveland at home 116-77 on Tuesday night.

The Wolves will play on without Kevin Love and Luke Ridnour again, although Rick Adelman said before tonight's game that there's a real possibility both players will return for the season's final two games Sunday against Golden State.

"We want to win," he said before adding that the team will do nothing to put Love's long-term healthy in jeopardy.

Adelman again will start Anthony Randolph at power forward tonight for the third consecutive game, even though he went 2-for-15 in the first two starts.

The Pistons are playing tonight without Ben Wallace, who's away from the team attending a funeral.

One other thing:

Love went to the barber today and tweeted a picture of his new look -- haircut, beard shaved, moustache remaining -- that drew quite a reaction from his teammates.

"That's terrible, that's just terrible," Nikola Pekovic said.

Anthony Tolliver agreed.

"That is terrible," he said, "but I hope he keeps it."

Here's what Ricky Rubio tweeted in response: "To learn spanish u dont need to look like a mexican u just need to study @kevinlove.

You can decide for yourself here whether he's really over that concussion yet or not.
