In today's Top 5: All-Star walking wounded, Bobcats invade Target, Royce on the run, Ryan on Baker and Tark on AP:

1) Ricky Rubio (injured), Kevin Love (injured), Nikola Pekovic (injured) and Andrei Kirilenko (non-injured) are on the NBA All-Star ballot. The game is on Feb. 17.

2) The Wolves take on Charlotte tonight at Target Center. Don't be surprised if you're asked to play.

3) De La Salle/Hopkins/U of M star Royce White leaves the Houston Rockets in a spat over his anxiety disorder.

4) Scott Baker is gone. Headed to the Cubs. Twins GM Terry Ryan isn't too broken up about it. He tells the Star Tribune: "The thing is, we haven't had him on the field much the past two years."

5) Fran Tarkenton, who played with the best, says Adrian Peterson "defies what any of us thought was possible."
