UPDATE: Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins will start, while Shabazz Napier and Jeff Teague are available to play tonight vs. the Suns.

The Minnesota Timberwolves injury report for Monday night vs. the Phoenix Suns is lengthy. Leading the list is Karl-Anthony Towns (knee), who is probable. Andrew Wiggins (thumb) and Jeff Teague (ankle) are both listed as questionable again, while Shabazz Napier is probable with a hamstring injury.

So all four of these guys played last night vs. the Lakers, so we can assume that may be the case again. If so, they’re all OK to roll out in your respective lineups. If Teague is sidelined, Culver will likely start at PG with Josh Okogie getting some of those minutes as well. Napier would be the backup PG off the bench.

If Wiggins is sidelined, Culver and Robert Covington will see more minutes at wing, while we also could see more Keita Bates-Diop and Jordan Bell off the bench. Culver and Covington would be ideal value targets in a game stack.
