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.

No Z-Bo for Grizzlies tonight in Memphis

The Wolves are about to tip off the second half of back-to-back games this weekend here in Memphis,where the Grizzlies will continue to play without forward Zach Randolph.

He's got a tailbone injury that caused him to miss last night's one-point victory in Dallas.

Actually, Randolph and Marc Gasol both were not expected to play last night, but Gasol was a late go the Grizz and he played 33 minutes, scored 10 ponts and had a mere 15 rebounds even with a healing sprained ankle.

The Wolves are healthy, but it'll be interesting to see how much Wes Johnson plays in the second of these back-to-back games because of that hamstring issue.

The game is not on TV in the Twin CIties, but the matchup to watch early is whether Mike Beasley can handle Rudy Gay at the small forward spot.
