NBA: Milwaukee Bucks at Minnesota Timberwolves Brad Rempel-USA TODAY Sports

While the Timberwolves continue their attempt to carve out something of a reliable identity, the Bucks look to be slowly nursing themselves back to health. All signs point to Semi Ojeleye being available off the bench for the first time this season, and Bobby Portis may be right there next to him (both were listed as probable on the latest injury report).

And the Timberwolves are as solid an opponent to debut against for both players. Talented but raw, Minnesota sits at 2-1 without having any signature wins; its a young roster with a new(ish) coach at the helm who have top-end scorers and none of the solid system that reliably gets secondary and tertiary players meaningfully involved. What better time than now to have some colder bodies get a little work in?

Jrue Holiday, Brook Lopez, and Donte DiVincenzo are all out for Milwaukee. Nobody is out for the Timberwolves.

Check out the full preview here, and follow along below and on Twitter. As always, go Bucks!
