The New Orleans Pelicans will try to keep rolling tonight at home against the Minnesota Timberwolves.
The Pels have won three in a row even though they’ve been missing their two best players, leaning on the suddenly red-hot shooting of CJ McCollum and getting huge contributions from unsung heroes like Naji Marshall, who has been outstanding of late.
The Timberwolves are in the running for most disappointing team in the league after trading away their entire future for Rudy Gobert, as they are just 16-18, have lost three in a row and have dropped to 11th place in the Western Conference, out of the play-in picture.
The Pels are sitting alone in second place in the West and are hoping to win their fourth in a row tonight at home. Will New Orleans take care of business against the slumping T’Wolves? And who is going to play?
Here is all of the information you will need.

It appears New Orleans will get some players back tonight, as Zion Williamson, Trey Murphy III and Dyson Daniels have all been upgraded to probable. Herb Jones is still listed as questionable, and Brandon Ingram has already been ruled out.
The Timberwolves will be missing Karl-Anthony Towns, Jordan McLaughlin, Kyle Anderson and Taurean Prince.
New Orleans Pelicans vs Minnesota Timberwolves: Prediction
The Pelicans have really come together as a team since their recent four-game skid and are now playing some of the best basketball of the season even though they’ve been shorthanded.
