KEY GAME INFORMATION
MINNESOTA: GUARDS: RICKY RUBIO could be back by late December, but even he's not confident his knee will be 100 percent. His minutes might have to be scaled back . . . LUKE RIDNOUR will handle the offense with Rubio hampered. The vet is a steady hand in coach Rick Adelman's Euro-style offense . . . They're counting on BRANDON ROY to reclaim his old form after a radical knee procedure. He may never be 100 percent, but he should at least give them sixth-man minutes . . . CHASE BUDINGER is a three-point marksman who moves well off the ball, a perfect fit in Adelman's system . . . J.J. BAREA will take some of the point guard burden as well. He's a top sixth man . . . ALEXEY SHVED can help as a combo guard, though he might have trouble breaking into this rotation . . . MALCOLM LEE is a defensive stopper who won't be asked to shoot very often. FORWARDS: Despite being limited athletically, KEVIN LOVE is an elite rebounder and shooter for a big. He'll continue to be the focal point of this offense once he returns from a broken hand in early December . . . ANDREI KIRILENKO returns to the States after a dominating Euroleague stint. He's a big upgrade at the three and should be comfortable in Adelman's system . . . DERRICK WILLIAMS will continue his attempted transition to the three. As last year proved, he's a long, long ways away. He might have to play himself into a rotation spot . . . DANTE CUNNINGHAM is a nice, efficient big to bring off the bench . . . Since they need shooting on the wings, rookie ROBBIE HUMMEL has a chance to crack the rotation. CENTERS: NIKOLA PEKOVIC is a beast, the best offensive rebounder in the NBA. His total rebounding numbers get hurt playing alongside Kevin Love, but Pekovic will continue to bully his way to put-backs . . . GREG STIEMSMA is going to come in and do some pushing and shoving (and occasional shot-blocking) for 12-to-15 MPG.
WASHINGTON: GUARDS: JOHN WALL hasn't developed much diversity in his offensive game, but he's still really fast and an effective distributor. The improved supporting cast should help him reach the next level, assuming he feels no ill effects from the stress injury in his left knee that will keep him out until late November . . . BRADLEY BEAL is a great shooter, but he can also score off the dribble. Throw in his rebounding ability from the backcourt, and he should contribute in a number of ways as a rookie . . . JORDAN CRAWFORD is a pure scorer, but not an efficient one. He won't be able to hold off Beal for long, if at all . . . A.J. PRICE steps in as Wall's top backup. He'll play limited minutes with the second unit . . . SHELVIN MACK will be battling for a roster spot, most likely with underachieving swingman MARTELL WEBSTER. FORWARDS: TREVOR ARIZA should have no trouble stepping into the starting lineup. He'll at least have a chance to re-find his three-point shot getting drive-and-dish feeds from Wall . . . Nene^ will slide to the four with Emeka Okafor coming in. That means athletic, but raw, JAN VESELY will have to play with the second unit. He can really run the floor, but doesn't help much in the half-court game . . . TREVOR BOOKER is a very good screener on offense who holds his own defensively and on the boards. He still has a chance for a handful of starts if Nene^ or Okafor get hurt . . . CHRIS SINGLETON started a lot of games last year, but the defensive specialist will likely spend this season learning behind Ariza . . . CARTIER MARTIN never saw a shot he didn't like. CENTERS: NENE^ had some trouble with plantar fasciitis last year and playing in the Olympics didn't help. If healthy, he has a chance to be Washington's leading scorer . . . EMEKA OKAFOR will start alongside Nene^. He's the fifth-best option on offense, but holds his own defensively . . . KEVIN SERAPHIN has proven he can hold down a starting job. He'll come off the bench but should still have a significant role.

*Timberwolves-Wizards Preview* ==============================

By MATT BEARDMORE STATS Writer

Minnesota (17-22) at Washington (9-31), 7:00 p.m. EDT

The Washington Wizards have found some stability since John Wall returned from injury.

Getting Ricky Rubio back hasn't had that effect for the injury-plagued Minnesota Timberwolves.

Back from their western swing, Wall and the Wizards will try to extend their season-high home winning streak to four on Friday night when the Timberwolves try to get on track with the first of two straight against the Eastern Conference's two worst teams.

Since making his season debut seven games ago following a stress injury to his left kneecap, Wall is averaging 14.0 points and 6.9 assists off the bench as the league-worst Wizards (9-31) slowly work him back into game shape.

That cautious approach has worked so far, as Washington has won four times since the former No. 1 overall pick returned.

The Wizards are scoring 98.9 points per game on 46.0 percent shooting with Wall, improving their league-low averages to 90.9 and 41.7.

"The last eight games we've built a good, solid round of basketball, and we've got to continue to build on that and not take any steps backward, moving forward when we get back from the (2-3) trip," coach Randy Wittman said after that stretch ended with a 92-88 loss to Utah on Wednesday.

Washington begins a three-game homestand with a chance to win four straight in the nation's capital for the first time since the last four of 2010-11.

The Timberwolves (17-22), meanwhile, have lost their last five on the road by an average of 15.0 points.

They've dropped eight of 10 overall since Kevin Love re-injured his right hand, and they've played the last three without point guard Alexey Shved (left ankle) and center Nikola Pekovic (right quadriceps).

Shved and Pekovic did not travel with the team, which also plays at Charlotte on Saturday.

The loss of Shved leaves few backcourt options for Terry Porter, who has led the team to a 2-7 record since coach Rick Adelman left to be with his sick wife.

Rubio wasn't Porter's choice for the entire fourth quarter of Wednesday's 91-83 loss to Brooklyn, and the Spaniard didn't hide his displeasure about J.J. Barea staying in the game. Rubio slightly backed off those comments after Thursday's practice, but added: "I always want to play, even when I don't deserve it."

Rubio returned to the starting lineup four games ago, but his play in 14 games since returning from a torn ACL and LCL doesn't scream for more playing time. He's shooting 24.6 percent and averaging 4.2 points and 5.0 assists.

Rubio missed a four-game stretch from Dec. 29-Jan. 5 with back issues, and he's clearly not 100 percent after admitting this week there is still pain in his surgically repaired knee. Teammates, though, respect his competitive nature.

"He wants to play," forward Derrick Williams said Thursday. "We were both in that situation (in the fourth quarter) yesterday. You've just got to keep your head high, stay focused. We've got more games to win."

Rubio came off the bench Jan. 8, 2012, and finished with 13 points, a career-high 14 assists and six rebounds in a 93-72 victory that ended the team's seven-game skid at Washington.

Wall missed seven of 10 shots and scored 10 points in that contest as the Wizards shot a season-low 34.5 percent at home.

Washington set season highs for points and shooting percentage (56.1) in its last game in the nation's capital, a 120-91 victory over Orlando on Jan. 14.
