Wolves reserve forward Nemanja Bjelica will not play tonight against the Pistons at Target Center.

He was scratched about an hour before opening tip because of a left knee contusion.

That should mean more time for Adreian Payne coming off the bench at power forward behind starter Kevin Garnett.

The Wolves, by the way, have started the season 0-5 at home and are still aiming for their first home victory.

They've also started the season 5-2 on the road and have beaten teams such as Chicago, Atlanta and Miami,
