The Cavs play the Wolves tonight with Larry Nance Jr. and Andre Drummond, who are out with a wrist and back injuries respectively. That means Jarrett Allen will be getting his first start as a Cav with Drummond out, while Taurean Prince gets the nod at small forward.

What this means for the rotation will be interesting. Will Dean Wade see minutes? Pre-game, J.B. Bickerstaff mentioned two-way player Lamar Stevens by name, so it seems like Stevens might play some. Damyean Dotson would also seem due for an uptick in minutes.

Key Cavs stats: 29th in offensive rating, ninth in defensive rating, 25th in net rating

Key Timberwolves stats: 30th in offensive rating, 26th in defensive rating, 30th in net rating

Cavs expected starters: Collin Sexton, Darius Garland, Isaac Okoro, Taurean Prince, Jarrett Allen

Timberwolves expected starters: D’Angelo Russell, Anthony Edwards, Josh Okogie, Malik Beasley, Ed Davis
