Notably absent was veteran Ed Davis, who the Wolves acquired in a trade last month. Getting the backup center minutes was Naz Reid, who had eight points, five rebounds and three blocks in 18 minutes. … Jarrett Culver finished with 10 points and 10 rebounds for his first career double-double. … Jaylen Nowell is still listed as out on the injury report because of a calf strain. Jordan McLaughlin is questionable as he tries to clear COVID protocols after recently signing with the team.
Jazz update: The Jazz were impressive in their debut, blowing out Portland 120-100. Both Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell had 20 points. Gobert recently signed a five-year, $205 million extension with the Jazz, the largest deal for a center in league history. The Jazz beat the Wolves in two of three meetings last season with both victories coming in Minnesota.
