There’s a possibility that the Wolves and Blazers game could be postponed due to issues with the Target Center floor.
The floor is apparently very slippery and Damian Lillard said there’s “no way” the players can play on it. It’s a safety issue, so the league will err on the side of caution if they can’t get things resolved soon. Remove all your Wolves and Blazers if you have bench alternatives tonight. For owners with weekly deadlines this will take some of the shine off Portland’s five game week.

Update: The game has been postponed to a later date. Get all Wolves and Blazers players out of your lineups. Stay tuned for possible make up dates. With the Blazers’ jam-packed schedule this week, we do not expect a make up to be this week.
Ricky Rubio and Karl-Anthony Towns are leaving the arena. Blazers and Timberwolves postponned.
