The Timberwolves are currently 5-27 on the year, behind only Philadelphia at 4-28. The Wolves have lost eleven-straight.
Despite their abysmal record, there is some light at the end of this tunnel, beyond just the high draft pick as a result of the losses. The Wolves aren't as bad as they've played. Yet again, it has been a season of injuries as Minnesota's key players can't stay healthy and on the court.
You've got to factor in the fact that the Wolves are currently down three starters (Ricky Rubio, Kevin Martin & Nikola Pekovic) as a key in all these losses. The Wolves lost their backup center Ronny Turiaf for the year (and later traded him to Philadelphia) and they traded away one of their few healthy veterans (Corey Brewer)
