MINNESOTA: GUARDS: Unlike last year, RICKY RUBIO should be 100 percent healthy for all of this season. He's one of the NBA's most creative playmakers. Now if only he could make a jump shot . . . KEVIN MARTIN has become much more of a catch-and-shoot player after years of attacking the basket and living at the line. He is coming off his best year shooting the ball . . . If the Wolves don't move J.J. BAREA, they'll have him in the sixth man role they initially envisioned before injuries destroyed the roster a year ago . . . ALEXEY SHVED did a nice job holding down this backcourt as a rookie last year, but he's a second-unit talent, which is the role he'll be in this season. FORWARDS: KEVIN LOVE should bounce back completely this season, as his hand injury is unlikely to linger. Lock him into the All-Star game . . . CHASE BUDINGER never got a chance to get going last season, but he's exactly the kind of spot-up shooter and savvy cutter who should thrive alongside Ricky Rubio. Unfortunately, he is sidelined with a knee injury for several months . . . COREY BREWER gives the Timberwolves a defensive specialist to platoon with Budinger. Someone has to convince him he can't shoot, though . . . With Love back, DERRICK WILLIAMS returns to the bench as a seemingly never-ending project . . . SHABAZZ MUHAMMAD seems like a low-risk, but low-reward, second-unit scorer . . . DANTE CUNNINGHAM will back up both post spots. He figures to play sparingly unless injuries hit. CENTERS: NIKOLA PEKOVIC signed a $60M deal in August to return to the team and hold down the low post. He's an absolute beast on the offensive boards . . . GORGUI DIENG seems ready to help off the bench. He's a bit limited athletically and on offense, but can block shots . . . RONNY TURIAF will battle Dieng for bench minutes.
DETROIT: GUARDS: BRANDON JENNINGS got a three-year deal to prove himself as a capable point guard, not just a flashy scorer. He'll have plenty of talent surrounding him in Detroit . . . RODNEY STUCKEY is in a contract year and has plenty of motivation. The question is whether his decision-making will ever allow him to play full-time . . . CHAUNCEY BILLUPS could beat out Stuckey for the two-guard role. He can play both backcourt spots and should see plenty of minutes . . . KENTAVIOUS CALDWELL-POPE scored through a lot of double-teams in college. We'll see if the late-bloomer is able to be as effective against NBA athletes. With the depth in Detroit, he's looking at strictly second-unit minutes this year . . . WILL BYNUM is locked into a second-unit spot. FORWARDS: JOSH SMITH is Detroit's new alpha dog. Offensively, he's a boom-or-bust player now that he'll spend more time on the perimeter . . . KYLE SINGLER was a steadying presence last year, and with his ability to play multiple spots, he should continue to get solid minutes off the bench . . . Italian League MVP LUIGI DATOME gives them a Swiss army knife type off the bench . . . It's back to square one for JONAS JEREBKO, who fell out of favor under Lawrence Frank. He has the kind of positional flexibility and versatility GM Joe Dumars has talked up, but he'll have to earn second-unit minutes . . . Second-rounder TONY MITCHELL is an NBA athlete who can break this rotation if the effort is there . . . CHARLIE VILLANUEVA gets paid a lot of money to do very little. CENTERS: GREG MONROE will give up some touches with Josh Smith coming in, but being surrounded by athletes like Smith and Andre Drummond will cover up his defensive flaws . . . ANDRE DRUMMOND will log close to full-time minutes with Monroe playing primarily the four. His offensive game may never come, but he's a defensive and rebounding monster. JOSH HARRELLSON will be a fan favorite who plays hard in the rare occasions he sees the floor.

*Timberwolves-Pistons Preview* ==============================


Minnesota (9-11) at Detroit (10-11), 7:30 p.m. EDT

The Detroit Pistons are watching center Andre Drummond come of age during their best stretch of the season.

The Minnesota Timberwolves hope the return of their established star big man can help end their worst.

The Pistons go for their fifth win in six games Tuesday night when they host the Timberwolves, who are expected to have Kevin Love as they try to avoid their eighth loss in 10 contests.

With Drummond taking his game to another level, Detroit (10-11) has gone 4-1 this month, including a 107-97 victory at Miami last Tuesday.

In a 115-100 win over Philadelphia on Dec. 1, the 20-year-old center became the first player to finish with 31 points, 19 rebounds and six steals in a game since Hakeem Olajuwon in 1990. He set career highs in all three categories and went 12 of 15 from the field, two days after coach Maurice Cheeks left him on the bench for the last 21 minutes of a loss to the Los Angeles Lakers.

Drummond has responded to the benching by shooting 63.2 percent and averaging 18.4 points, 16.8 rebounds and 2.0 blocks in the past five contests. He had 19 points, 14 boards, two steals and two blocks on Sunday, but the Heat got their revenge with a 110-95 win that snapped Detroit's season-high four-game winning streak.

Drummond's six-game run with at least six offensive rebounds is the longest by a Piston since Dennis Rodman had eight straight Feb. 25-March 10, 1992.

"They have a cornerstone guy in Drummond," Miami's Shane Battier said. "He's a guy you can build a franchise around. His talent is that apparent."

Since allowing 47.9 percent shooting and posting a plus-1.6 rebounding margin in their first 16 games, the Pistons have limited opponents to a 42.6 shooting percentage with a plus-11.2 rebounding advantage over the last five.

The Timberwolves (9-11), losers of six of seven on the road, rank near the bottom of the league with a 42.3 field-goal percentage after shooting a franchise-low 29.3 percent in Saturday's 103-82 loss to Miami.

They should get a lift with Love expected to play after missing that game to be with his family following the death of his grandmother Wednesday night.

The two-time All-Star has averaged a team-best 23.7 points while sitting atop the league with 13.6 rebounds per game and 18 double-doubles. He's grabbed 18.3 rebounds per game in his last three against Detroit, though he sat out the three most recent meetings due to injury.

The Timberwolves are looking to improve defensively after allowing 108.2 points and 52.2 percent shooting while dropping five of six. The Heat shot 55.1 percent against them Saturday.

"We allowed them, you know, too many easy layups," center Nikola Pekovic told the team's official website.

With Love out, Kevin Martin scored 19 points but shot 5 of 16. Pekovic had 18 points and 12 rebounds.

Pekovic has been playing well, averaging 20.5 points and 10.3 boards over his past four games. He's averaged 20.3 points and 11.0 rebounds in his last three against the Pistons.

Minnesota has won the last six meetings.
