If Gregg Popovich thought the Wolves were shorthanded and it wasn't a fair fight earlier this season, well, get a load of tonight:

The Wolves are down to eight healthy players for tonight's 6 p.m. game at San Antonio.

Ricky Rubio, Nikola Pekovic and Gary Neal all are out because of injured ankle. Kevin Garnett is out, too, presumably because of that knee that Flip Saunders will get another look from doctors when the team returns from this four-game trip after tonight's game.

And don't forget, Anthony Bennett, Shabazz Muhammad and Robbie Hummel all remain out as well.

That means you'll see lots and lots of Zach LaVine, Gorgui Dieng, Justin Hamilton, among others. You might even see a lot of Lorenzo Brown as well against a Spurs team that had won six straight before Kyrie Irving scored 57 points to beat them in overtime on Thursday.

It also means LaVine, Kevin Martin, Andrew Wiggins, Dieng and Hamilton are your starting five for tonight's game.
