On Thursday March 1, the Minnesota Timberwolves arrive at the Moda Center to face their host the Portland Trail Blazers. In their last game the Timberwolves easily handled the Kings beating them by 18 points.
Portland enters on a four game win streak having bested the Warriors, Jazz, Suns and Kings in succession.
Last season the Blazers won three of four meetings whereas this season the Wolves hold the 2-1 edge.
The Blazers hold the all-time record having bested the Timberwolves in 80 of their 113 matches.
The loss of Jimmy Butler is a terrible hit to the Wolves who had just moved into the third seed in the West with a half game lead over the Spurs. How Andrew Wiggins and Karl-Anthony Towns deal with his absence will be key to retaining home court.
Six players scored in double digits in the win over Sacramento including Wiggins (22), Towns (26), Jeff Teague (20), Taj Gibson (15), Nemanja Bjelica (12) and Gorgui Dieng (10).
Additionally, the Wolves have been abysmal on the road, but captured a much needed win in Sacramento ending a seven game road losing streak.
With nine more road games on tap through to the end of the season the Wolves success in this area may well determine their final seeding.
Jimmy Butler underwent surgery to repair a meniscus injury which will require four-to-six weeks to heal.

In the last game six Blazers scored in double digits to capture the victory. Damian Lillard led the way with 26 while Shabazz Napier (20), Jusuf Nurkic (17), Al-Farouq Aminu (13), CJ McCollum (11) and Maurice Harkless (10) all chipped in.
The Blazers currently sit in the fifth seed a game and a half back of the Wolves.
Evan Turner is nursing an injured toe but is likely to be available against the Timberwolves on Thursday.
CJ Wilcox (knee) is rehabbing with the team’s G League affiliate.
