Spurs-Timberwolves Preview

(AP) -- Kevin Martin fought through an illness to give the short-handed Minnesota Timberwolves a needed boost in their latest game.

A visit from surging San Antonio on Friday night would appear to provide an even greater challenge to the Timberwolves, especially considering the Spurs' recent defensive performances against Martin.

Minnesota (3-7) has lost point guard Ricky Rubio for an unknown period after he severely sprained his left ankle in the second of six consecutive games away from home. Nikola Pekovic sprained his right wrist during the 1-5 trek, and Thaddeus Young returned home following the death of his mother.
