Timberwolves' Aaron Brooks starting at point guard with Jeff Teague (ankle) sidelined

Minnesota Timberwolves point guard Aaron Brooks will start on Friday, after Jeff Teague (ankle) was made a late scratch.

What It Means:

Tyus Jones has been running as the Wolves' second point guard this season, and even with Brooks starting, Jones will likely see the bigger workload of the two.

Before the injury, numberFire's models had projected Teague to play 34.2 minutes, meaning there is plenty of playing time to go around in his absence.
