Shved, Pekovic out again as Wolves face Nets

In November, the Timberwolves pulled off an impressive win in Brooklyn, beating the Nets by 11 points without Kevin Love or Ricky Rubio.

Tonight, the rematch at Target Center -- but the dynamics are a bit different. Rubio is back with the team, but still hurting. Love, and a slew of others, are sidelined with injuries.

Tonight, for example, Minnesota will play without Alexey Shved (ankle) and Nikola Pekovic (thigh) for a third straight game, according to the Star Tribune.

The injury-riddled Wolves have lost 12 of their last 17, including a rough loss in Atlanta Monday -- where Minnesota blew an 18-point lead. The Nets, meanwhile, have won 11 of 13.
