(Minneapolis, MN) – The Timberwolves continue their three-game homestand tonight against the Houston Rockets at Target Center. The Lakers will then come to town on Thursday in the final game before the All-Star break. The Wolves snapped a two-game skid with Sunday’s 111-106 win over Sacramento. They sit fourth in the West at 35-and-24. The Rockets are 42-and-13.
(St. Paul, MN) – The Wild resume their five-game homestand tonight against the New York Rangers at The X. Minnesota is 1-0-and-1 so far after Saturday’s 3-0 shutout of Chicago. The Wild currently hold the second wild card spot in the West with 66 points, one ahead of the Kings and Ducks. The Rangers are a point out of the final wild card in the East.
(Fort Myers, FL) – Twins’ pitchers and catchers report for spring training today in Fort Myers. The first workout is tomorrow. Position players report Sunday, with the first full-squad workout next Monday. The Twins play the University of Minnesota February 22nd before opening Grapefruit League play the next day against the Red Sox.
(Houston, TX) – The Astros may be looking to trade Collin McHugh. Multiple reports say McHugh is being targeted by the Twins and Baltimore Orioles. The right-hander went 5-and-2 in the regular season last year, while also going 1-and-1 in the playoffs. He could be expendable for Houston as the world champs traded for Gerrit Cole in January.
