The NBA's newest superteam, the Golden State Warriors, will aim for their 11th consecutive tonight against the Wolves in Oakland without star forward Draymond Green.
He injured his ankle in Friday's victory over the Lakers in Los Angeles and will not play tonight.
Neither will Warriors guard Ian Clark, who had his throat stepped upon last night.
The Warriors stiill have, of course, Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and a guy named Kevin Durant and that winning streak that dates to a Nov. 4 loss to the Lakers.
The Warriors have prepared a video welcome for Wolves guard Brandon Rush, a member of last year's NBA-record, 73-victory Golden State team. It will be played during the first timeout for tonight's 9:30 p.m. start Twin Cities time.
The Warriors are doing so for all of last season's members -- Andrew Bogut, Harrison Barnes, Leandro Barbosa, among them -- who are playing elsewhere this season after the Warriors had to rebuilt their bench so they could clear salary-cap room to sign Durant.
"It feels weird being back, especially being on this side in the visitor's room," Rush said before tonight's game. "I'm excited to be back, catch up."
One more thing: Tonight's game will start on FSN Plus and FOX Sports Go while the Wild game finishes up and then will move to FSN's main channel.
