The Minnesota Timberwolves dropped back to .500 on the season following a 100-92 loss to the Orlando Magic on Saturday. At 38-38, the Timberwolves are third in the Northwest Division and 10th in the Western Conference. The Timberwolves were without Nikola Pekovic, Kevin Martin, Chase Budinger, Shabazz Muhammad and Kevin Love. A bit of good news on the injury front is that Love is expected to play today against the Spurs.
