Timberwolves Vs. Bobcats: Minnesota Tries To Buck Recent Road Form In Charlotte

The Minnesota Timberwolves will try to avoid both seven road losses in eight road games and five straight losses in Charlotte when they take on the Bobcats on Wednesday.

The Minnesota Timberwolves have lost six of their last seven games on the road, including their most recent game against Memphis. That road slumping is a big part of why they have lost their way in the playoff race after looking so close to contention before the All Star break. Fortunately, they get one of their easiest road games of the year in the spot when they need a win the most, in Charlotte.

The Charlotte Bobcats have been possibly the worst team in the league this season. Minnesota has historically struggled in Charlotte with four straight losses there, but the Cats are so awful this year that they might just be the cure for what's been ailing the Wolves.

Minnesota continues to harbor a slew of injuries going into Wednesday's game. Both Nikola Pekovic and J.J. Barea are likely to miss out on the game, and Ricky Rubio will of course continue to miss time because of his torn ACL. Kevin Love was carrying the team early in the year, but it's looking increasingly less likely that he's going to be able to carry them to the playoffs without his supporting cast.
