Wolves’ WEEK AHEAD

Monday: 7 p.m. vs. Dallas

Wednesday: 7 p.m. vs. Houston

Friday: 7 p.m. vs. Okla. City

FSN for all games

 

Player to watch: Dirk Nowitzki, Dallas

He won’t be around forever — he already has missed 22 games this season because of an Achilles’ strain and another three because of illness — so appreciate the man who along with Kevin Garnett helped transform the power forward position in the NBA while you can.

VOICES
