Timberwolves have a depth problem, not a workload problem

There is an urge to look at the Timberwolves’ overtime loss to Philadelphia on Tuesday through a certain forgiving, optimistic lens. This is an 82-game season, after all. The Wolves are 16-12. If we keep harping on every little bad or questionable thing, we’re probably missing out on the big picture: Minnesota is playing meaningful basketball, even if it isn’t pretty, and more often than not so far this team is grinding out wins. The recent winning formula — heavy minutes for the starters, just three bench players used and a hold-on-for-dear-life fourth quarter approach — very well could have worked again Tuesday. The Wolves led by nine points midway through the fourth quarter and by two points in the closing seconds of regulation. Better execution in a handful or even just one critical possession would have yielded a victory. But I also think Tuesday’s game underscored the potentially real problem lurking within the Wolves’ shrunken 8-man rotation. Excellent Wolves TV analyst Jim Petersen hit on it the other day during a series of tweets. It’s not so much that the Wolves’ best players are logging heavy minutes. A lot of star players are asked to carry heavy loads. Guys like LeBron James and Allen Iverson routinely averaged more than 40 minutes per game during full seasons. And yes, Tuesday’s game looked extreme because it ended up going to overtime. Karl-Anthony Towns played 48 minutes. Jimmy Butler played a shade under 46 full minutes. Those totals still would have been high if the Wolves had won (or lost) in regulation, but as Tyus Jones told me recently, when players are in the middle of a game the number of minutes they’re playing is the last thing on their minds. Was fatigue a factor in overtime? Has it been a factor late in games this season, given that the Wolves are being outscored by an average of 2.9 points in the fourth quarter of games this season after outscoring opponents by an average of 3.5 points over the first three quarters? Maybe. It could also be execution. The larger point underscored Tuesday and by Petersen on Twitter a few days ago is this: “If your complaint is about having a stronger bench … I’m with you.” Yes, that is my specific complaint about the first 28 games and particularly about Tuesday — and particularly about depth among wing players. The 76ers were awful through 3.5 quarters on Tuesday. They looked disinterested and sloppy. They came in with a 13-13 record and had lost four consecutive games. For all the talk about their emergence and the validation of “The Process” — a fancy term given to the concept of trying to be bad in order to be good later, which like the guy who thought he invented making lunch at home is not at all a new idea — they are very much still a work in progress. Joel Embiid is a monster and a joy. Ben Simmons has great vision. If they develop and stay healthy, they have a chance. But right now, they are flawed. The Wolves can take some of the credit for making Philly look bad for the first 42 minutes. Butler’s defense on Simmons was superb. So again, the grind-it-out method could have led to a win Tuesday. But there’s also this: The Wolves at one point Tuesday were 1-for-23 from three-point range. At the point they were 1-for-19, they were ahead 86-77 with 6:06 left in regulation. Andrew Wiggins couldn’t buy a jumper. Jimmy Butler, at that point, hadn’t made a three all night. Jamal Crawford was 0-for-4 from long range. And those are the three wings who currently play. It was a game in which the Wolves desperately missed injured forward Nemanja Bjelica, who is 21 of 41 from long range this season but has been out for 10 games now. It was a game in which the Wolves desperately missed the version of Shabazz Muhammad who couldn’t miss from three at one point last year. But guess what? Injuries happen. Funks like the one Muhammad has been in basically all year — leading to his recent benching — happen. Tuesday’s game was crying out for a different look. Try Muhammad and see if he can get some traction. Put in Marcus Georges-Hunt and see if he can knock down an open three. Maybe even experiment with Tyus Jones and Jeff Teague on the court at the same time (particularly when the 76ers went small with T.J. McConnell) since both of those guys can make threes. If anyone on the Wolves would have warmed up even just a little from three-point range, Minnesota could have turned Tuesday’s game into a blowout. Big-picture, you need to find out if you have any depth because 1) Games like this call for it, 2) What happens if Butler, Wiggins or Crawford miss any sort of time with injury, illness or even just foul trouble? and 3) If it turns out you don’t have any depth, maybe you can acquire some. Is it sustainable for guys like Butler, Wiggins and Towns to play a few more minutes every game than some might prefer? Quite possibly. But that’s only if nothing goes wrong with any of the eight players in any game  — and that’s the part that doesn’t feel sustainable.

Mike Zimmer optimistic about Vikings' O-line health before Bengals game

Minnesota Vikings Mike Remmers (74).] CARLOS GONZALEZ cgonzalez@startribune.com – September 24, 2017, Minneapolis, MN, NFL, US Bank Stadium, Minnesota Vikings vs. Tampa Bay BuccaneersAs the Vikings prepare to return home after a three-game road trip on Sunday, coach Mike Zimmer sounded optimistic about having most of his offensive line healthy against the Cincinnati Bengals. Zimmer said Wednesday he feels “pretty good” about the health of the line, adding, “I think we’ll get a lot of them back. I think we should get [Pat] Elflein back this week. I think we should get [Mike] Remmers back. There’s a good chance — a possibility of getting [Riley] Reiff back.” Both Elflein and Remmers were participating during the Vikings’ first practice of the week. Reiff, who injured his left ankle on Sunday against the Carolina Panthers, was not practicing on Wednesday, but didn’t have a walking boot and seemed to be moving without a noticeable limp during a brief appearance in the locker room while media was present. Elflein, who was inactive because of a shoulder injury on Sunday, said on KFAN on Tuesday he is optimistic about playing against the Bengals. Remmers has missed the Vikings’ last four games — three with a concussion, and one because of a low back injury he sustained in practice on Nov. 29. His return would give the Vikings at least one of their starting tackles on Sunday, even if Reiff is unable to play Sunday. Rashod Hill, who has started the Vikings’ past four games at right tackle, shifted to the left side when Reiff was injured in the third quarter on Sunday. Hill said in the locker room on Wednesday the team is preparing him to play left tackle on Sunday.

Michael Pineda signing is another smart move by Twins

So the Twins just gave $10 million guaranteed over the next two seasons to a pitcher who has a long injury history and underwent Tommy John surgery in July, meaning he wouldn’t pitch much — if at all — in the first year of his two-year contract. And I’m here to say that the Twins look … smart? Yes. Bear with me. Manager Paul Molitor described the signing of Michael Pineda as “outside the box,” which is a good place to start with what there is to like about it. Let’s break it down: *Pineda’s contract calls for him to make $2 million next season and $8 million in 2019. That’s an unusual breakdown, but one that makes sense on a couple of fronts. First, Pineda had surgery July 18. Recovery time to return to MLB action after having Tommy John surgery can vary, but generally it’s considered to be somewhere between 12 and 16 months. So best-case scenario for the Twins is that Pineda is on the quicker end and can potentially contribute in 2018. They clearly won’t rush him back, but if he’s ready there’s no reason he shouldn’t pitch. But even if he doesn’t contribute at all in 2018, his salary is just $2 million. It makes a jump to $8 million in 2019, which is notable because Joe Mauer’s $23 million per year contract is off the books starting that season, as is Ervin Santana’s deal. Baseball has no salary cap, of course, but teams operate within certain salary frameworks. This deal allows the Twins to stay aggressive in pursuit of pitchers who can definitely help in 2018 while deferring money to a pitcher who should help no later than 2019 to a year when they have less money committed to other players. *Even if this ends up being more like a one-year, $10 million deal for 2019, that’s a good time to have a fresh arm because, as noted, Santana’s four-year deal expires after next season. And $10 million for a pitcher of Pineda’s caliber is a fair bet. *Before Tommy John surgery, Pineda was at least somewhat durable and potentially dominant. He only missed a handful of starts with the Yankees over the last 2.5 years before being shut down in July. His ERA in that span is a subpar 4.56, but his FIP — similar to ERA, while trying to strip out external factors like fielding — is a much better 3.82. And in those 76 starts, he averaged 9.5 strikeouts per nine innings against just two walks. He’s prone to giving up home runs, but having Yankee Stadium as a home ballpark explains at least some of that (he’s allowed 49 homers in 275 2/3 career innings at Yankee Stadium but just 42 in 404 1/3 innings in other ballparks). He’ll either be 29 or 30 when he makes his Twins debut, which puts him right in the prime of his career. *The Twins’ greatest postseason downfall from 2002-present has been a lack of lights-out starting pitchers. They’re 2-20 in their last 22 playoff games, and both of those were started by Johan Santana. Like the Twins’ pursuit of Chris Archer via trade and/or Yu Darvish in free agency — both of which are still in play, since this Pineda deal is more aimed at 2019 — this move is about adding upper-echelon arm talent. Imagine a Twins rotation in 2019 that includes Archer or Darvish, Pineda, Jose Berrios and Stephen Gonsalves. Those are guys who can generate the swings and misses needed to succeed in the postseason.

The best- and worst-case Vikings playoff opponent scenarios are ...

Here’s a subject we got to toward the end of this week’s Access Vikings podcast, prompted by a question from a listener: Who are the teams you prefer to see in the playoffs if you’re the Vikings, and who are the teams you’d like to avoid? Every team in the postseason is obviously dangerous, but things like personnel matchups, playoff pedigree and even old grudges can play a role in determining these preferences. As such, here’s a look at a path I think the Vikings would prefer … and some opponents I’d assume they’d rather not see: THE IDEAL REALISTIC PATH Getting the No. 1 overall seed took a big hit with last week’s loss to Carolina. The Vikings would need to win two more games than the Eagles over the next three weeks to gain that edge. But it’s still quite realistic for Minnesota to grab the No. 2 seed, which carries with it the second bye. Two wins in the final three games is most likely enough to ensure that. That would give the Vikings the first weekend off, then have them playing the highest remaining seeded team in the division round. That could be any number of teams, but the likeliest are the Rams, Seahawks or Saints — with the Panthers and Falcons also in the mix. The Vikings already defeated the Rams, Saints and Falcons this year. Of the three, a rematch with the Rams seems like the most preferable matchup because L.A. has a young quarterback and lacks postseason experience. The Panthers beat the Vikings last week in Carolina, but I think the Vikings would handle them at home in a rematch. That’s preference No. 2. Let’s say it is the Rams first. A win there would put the Vikings in the NFC title game. At that point, the idea of home field trumps all else. So the ideal path would be the Eagles getting knocked out in the division round by the Panthers and the Vikings hosting Carolina in the NFC title game. Vikings vs. Saints at U.S. Bank Stadium would be my next preference, followed by Vikings/Falcons. That said, Philadelphia without Carson Wentz could be vulnerable in the postseason. I’d give the Vikings coin-flip odds of winning an NFC title game in Philadelphia if that was the matchup. DO NOT WANT If you’re the Vikings, I don’t think you want to see Seattle at any point in the playoffs. Russell Wilson is so good at extending plays, and Seattle is battle-tested. I’d generally want to avoid Atlanta, too. And as I wrote about the other day, this one is a long shot but at no point do the Vikings want to see the Packers in the playoffs. Green Bay still has a large hill to climb just to reach the postseason, but the prospect of a motivated and angry Aaron Rodgers coming into U.S. Bank Stadium should not make anyone comfortable, regardless of how flawed the Packers’ roster is.
