Wolves popularity remains steady through another losing season


A logical person would guess that the Timberwolves have suffered a big hit in the attendance department since Kevin Love isn't playing and the team is losing far more than its winning. If you're that logical person, you're wrong.

The Wolves are averaging 16,736 fans at home games this season. That's less than 3,000 fans shy of a sellout.

Team president Chris Wright told the Pioneer Press that Ricky Rubio's return from injury has helped, but he can "only imagine" how full the Target Center would be if the team was completely healthy.

The Wolves are back at home Wednesday night when they host the Utah Jazz before entering the All-Star break.
