Description: Wayne Ellington played 34 minutes on the wing for Minnesota to total 14 points.

Description: Wesley Johnson will have a limitation on his minutes to ensure his hamstring is healed. Meanwhile, Wayne Ellington will be the starting shooting guard for the Wolves tonight. SOURCE: Pioneer Press
Insight: Johnson's value has been all over the place in the past couple months and he is really far from a must-own at this point. His owners might want to hang onto him for tonight to see what happens, but should a player that's on the wire have a big game tonight, it might be time to move on without him. That player could be Ellington tonight, too.
