Minnesota Timberwolves: Preview, Predictions and Storylines to Watch in 2012-13
Brace Hemmelgarn-US PRESSWIRE

The Minnesota Timberwolves suffered a heartbreaking loss in the middle of the 2011-12 NBA season when rookie sensation Ricky Rubio went down for the year with a torn ACL. It was a major blow that shipwrecked their playoff chances and put them back in the lottery without a first-round draft pick.

Now that the Spanish point guard is getting healthy and is expected to return to the lineup by midseason, the T’Wolves have a legit chance of pushing into the postseason following the 2012-13 campaign. However, they have suffered a recent setback with the news that superstar PF Kevin Love broke his right hand and will be out six-to-eight weeks. This certainly hurts the Wolves coming out of the gate.

Regardless of health, Minnesota realized it still needed to clean house a bit and add some pieces if the franchise is to truly contend this coming season. The T-Wolves accomplished that goal with a rash of free-agent signings that could make a major impact on how the team finishes.

Let’s take a look at what Minnesota did over the summer in its 2012-13 preview, which includes key acquisitions and departures, a projected starting lineup and depth chart, strengths and weaknesses of the roster, a predicted outcome and much more.
