The LA Lakers face off against the Minnesota Timberwolves at the Target Center on Tuesday.

The Lakers suffered their first loss in eight games when the Denver Nuggets defeated them 122-105 last Sunday. However, worse than that was the injury that Anthony Davis suffered during the game.

Even though the Timberwolves own the worst record in the league at 7-20, they won their last game - a 116-112 victory over the Toronto Raptors.

Karl-Anthony Towns returned from COVID-19 quarantine a week ago and will provide quite a challenge to the LA Lakers who will be missing Davis’ interior defense.
