The Portland Trail Blazers take on the Minnesota Timberwolves at the Moda Center tonight. After a difficult fall the the Chicago Bulls, Portland is looking for a win. The season so far has been anything but predictable, and if we have learned anything it’s that no wins are guaranteed. That being said, if the Blazers can play well together, they should have no problem pulling off this win against the 2-5 Timberwolves.
The Blazers are also hopeful Rodney Hood will return to the court tonight.
Coach Stotts says Rodney Hood (left quad strain) will go through warm-ups today and see how he feels. He was listed as questionable, but Stotts says they are "hopeful" he will play tonight #RipCity— Jamie Hudson (@JamieHudsonNBCS) January 8, 2021
Hood will play.
