MINNESOTA: LAST SEASON: 47-35, lost in first round.
COACH: Tom Thibodeau (third season, eighth NBA season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Jeff Teague (14.2 ppg), G Derrick Rose (8.4 ppg) OR Jimmy Butler (22.2 ppg), F Andrew Wiggins (17.7 ppg), F Taj Gibson (12.2 ppg), C Karl-Anthony Towns (21.3 ppg).
KEY LOSSES: G Jamal Crawford, F Nemanja Bjelica
KEY ADDITIONS: F Anthony Tolliver, G Josh Okogie, F Keita Bates-Diop, F Luol Deng
PLAYERS TO WATCH: Butler requested a trade less than a week before the beginning of training camp. Thibodeau has said the Wolves will only grant his wish if they find a deal that makes sense for them, but the likelihood of Butler joining them on the floor after all the bluster is low. Assuming a trade is consummated, the Wolves would almost certainly receive a starter as part of a package. For now, Rose is playing the shooting guard spot after a decent showing down the stretch last season as yet another former Chicago Bulls player to reunite with Thibodeau.
OUTLOOK: Though the Wolves were able to celebrate their return to the playoffs last spring after a 13-year absence, they were already facing a rough road back in a rugged Western Conference that only got deeper over the summer. Then Butler's unhappiness came to a head. The good news for the Wolves is that Towns has continued to improve into one of the game's best big men with a smooth 3-point shot to boot, and at age 22 he already has his super-max contract signed. Even if this season proves to be a step back, Towns will be the franchise cornerstone for years to come.
SACRAMENTO: LAST SEASON: 27-55, missed playoffs.
COACH: Dave Joerger (third season, sixth NBA season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G De'Aaron Fox (11.6 ppg), G Buddy Hield (13.5 ppg), F Justin Jackson (6.7 ppg), F Marvin Bagley III (rookie, Duke), C Willie Cauley-Stein (12.8 ppg).
KEY LOSSES: G George Hill, F Garrett Temple, G Vince Coleman
KEY ADDITIONS: Bagley, G Ben McLemore, F Nemanja Bjelica
PLAYERS TO WATCH: Joerger declared Fox to be Sacramento's franchise player and is building the offense around the young point guard. Fox had flashes of brilliance during an up-and-down rookie season but has more scoring help around him this year. Bagley is the wild card who will start at power forward and may see significant time in the post when the Kings go with a smaller lineup.
OUTLOOK: The Kings have a lot of work to do to end their 12-year postseason drought. There are question marks across the board, specifically regarding defense and rebounding. Hield and McLemore will split time in the backcourt alongside Fox until Bogdan Bogdanovic returns from a pair of offseason knee surgeries but the key will be down low. Bagley provides a little more scoring which should help offset Cauley-Stein's inconsistencies.
Timberwolves, Kings seek end of skids

SACRAMENTO -- The Minnesota Timberwolves and Sacramento Kings will both be out to end losing streaks Friday night when they clash in the California capital.

The Timberwolves will seek a second consecutive win in Sacramento and a fourth straight overall against the Kings when they attempt to avoid a winless five-game road trip that began with losses at Golden State, Portland and two in Los Angeles (to both the Clippers and Lakers).

The good news for the Timberwolves is that Derrick Rose, who sat out the entire Portland game and all but five minutes of the Golden State loss because of an ankle injury, appears to have made a healthy recovery.

He was able to play 35 minutes against the Clippers on Monday and 37 against the Lakers on Wednesday, pouring in 21 and 31 points, respectively, in those contests.

The temptation to play through the pain after having exploded for a career-best 50 points in Minnesota's last home game before the trip gave way to the reality of having a 30-year-old body, Rose said.

"Knowing where I came from, my injury background, there's no point in risking anything if I feel a certain way," he explained this week. "It's about being smart, knowing what type of player I am. And a lot of people look at it like, 'Your 60 percent is a lot better than a lot of people's 90 or 100 percent.' But it's my body, I have to pay attention to my body and just be smart with the whole situation."

Rose's presence in Sacramento is all the more important given that Minnesota's regular starting point guard, Jeff Teague, is likely to miss his sixth straight game with a bruised knee. Rose has started three of those games, averaging 33.7 points.

Teague had 20 points and seven assists in his matchup with Kings star point guard De'Aaron Fox in the Timberwolves' 118-100 win at Sacramento last February. Minnesota swept the three-game season series, also winning twice at home.

Fox had only 13 points in that home loss to the Timberwolves, but has blossomed into much more of a scorer this season, going for 20 or more points in six of the Kings' 11 games.

Sacramento is 4-2 this season when he's scored at least 20.

The Kings have lost two straight, including 114-105 to Toronto on Wednesday in the opener of a four-game homestand.

The biggest positive of the defeat: High-scoring forward Bogdan Bogdanovic made his season debut following offseason knee surgery, getting in 18 minutes and going for seven points.

The cheer when the club's fourth-leading scorer last year entered the game was about as loud as Kings fans got all night.

"I felt good and also I would like to thank the fans for (the) standing ovation at the beginning," Bogdanovic said. "I found some energy from them.

"I was a little bit tired, but just my lungs. Legs are good and knee is good, so that's what I'm worried about."

The Kings, who had 20 fewer wins than the Timberwolves last season, enter the game with the better record of the two at 6-5. Minnesota has slipped to 4-8.
