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.
OKLAHOMA CITY: GUARDS: RUSSELL WESTBROOK is going to likely miss the first 4-to-6 weeks of the regular season after getting another procedure done on Oct. 1 to reduce swelling on his knee. It will probably take him some time to get rid of the rust of not playing all summer . . . THABO SEFOLOSHA should play even more minutes this season with Kevin Martin gone. He has added a three-point shot to his repertoire . . . REGGIE JACKSON could end up absorbing a lot of the minutes that went to James Harden two years ago and Martin last season. But he's nowhere near the offensive threat . . . JEREMY LAMB will push Jackson for that sixth-man role. He's dominated against lesser competition . . . DEREK FISHER will get minutes as a player/coach. FORWARDS: KEVIN DURANT may have to take on an even bigger role in the regular season as the Thunder try to replace Kevin Martin's offensive production. Either way, he's the MVP among the league's non-LeBrons . . . SERGE IBAKA has had his postseason issues and still struggles defensively outside of rim protection, but he has added value with his mid-range shooting . . . NICK COLLISON's biggest skill is his ability to take charges. He'll continue to log big minutes at the four and five as a glue guy . . . One of two very raw young players, PERRY JONES III and ANDRE ROBERSON, has a chance for playing time on a thin team. CENTERS: KENDRICK PERKINS was a disaster in last year's postseason, but still provides the kind of low-post muscle the Thunder look for . . . Rookie STEVEN ADAMS could take over for Perkins down the road, but he's too raw to make an impact this year . . . HASHEEM THABEET fills out the final roster spot.

*Timberwolves-Thunder Preview* ==============================


Minnesota (23-24) at Oklahoma City (39-11), 8:00 p.m. EDT

While the Oklahoma City Thunder have struggled to put up points since their winning streak came to an end, a solid effort on the defensive end helped them get back in the win column.

Scoring hasn't been much of a problem for Oklahoma City during its run at home against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

The Thunder seek their 12th victory in 13 games while beating the Timberwolves for the ninth straight time in Oklahoma City on Wednesday night.

Since averaging 110.2 points while hitting 43.1 percent from 3-point range over a 10-game winning streak, Western Conference-best Oklahoma City (39-11) has totaled 167 points and missed 34 of 42 from 3 in its last two.

Following a 96-81 loss at Washington on Saturday that snapped their second-longest run since leaving Seattle in 2008, the Thunder bounced back with an 86-77 victory over visiting Memphis on Monday.

"One of the strengths of our team, obviously, is our versatility," coach Scott Brooks said. "I think tonight it showed that sometimes you have to play different styles of basketball to get a win."

Durant had scored 26 in consecutive games following a streak of 12 straight with at least 30 points before finishing with 31 points, eight rebounds and eight assists in Monday's win.

Serge Ibaka added 21 points and 12 rebounds against the defensive-minded Grizzlies as Oklahoma City improved to a league-best 21-3 at home with its seventh straight win there.

The Thunder may be able to get back on track offensively since they've averaged 118.5 points on 53.3 percent shooting - including 42.3 from 3-point range - during an eight-game home winning streak against the Timberwolves (22-22).

Durant has scored 30.9 per game while hitting 14 of 28 from beyond the arc in his last seven at home in this series. He recorded his fourth career triple-double with 32 points, 12 assists and 10 rebounds in a 113-103 home win Dec. 1.

In that performance, the five-time All-Star became the first player to record at least 30 points, 10 rebounds, 12 assists, four steals and four blocks in a single game since blocks and steals became official stats during the 1973-74 season.

The Timberwolves have split their first four games without injured center Nikola Pekovic as they snapped a two-game skid with a 109-99 win over the visiting Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday.

Former Thunder guard Kevin Martin matched a season high with 32 points, while Kevin Love added 31 points and 17 rebounds. Love, an All-Star for the third time, has averaged 32.6 points and 14.8 rebounds in his last five games.

"I just want to continue to keep playing and give this team all that I can," Love said. "Yeah, I've taken a physical beating, but you've got to expect being one of the top guys that they're going to come at you."

While he totaled 54 points on 18-of-33 shooting to help Minnesota split its two home games in the season series, Love scored just 16 while missing 10 of 14 shots in the December loss in Oklahoma City.

In the last matchup, Durant finished with 48 points, seven rebounds and seven assists as the visiting Thunder scored 38 in the fourth quarter to rally past the Timberwolves 115-111 on Jan. 4.

Oklahoma City has won 16 of the past 19 meetings overall.
