Short-handed Wolves hope Towns returns vs. Pacers

The Minnesota Timberwolves will be short-handed again Friday night when they visit the Indiana Pacers in the second half of a home-and-home sequence.

Indiana used a dominant performance by Domantas Sabonis to capture the first half of the back-to-back 104-99 at Minnesota on Wednesday night.

The Timberwolves had hoped to get Karl-Anthony Towns back from a 14-game absence to help deal with the taller Pacers, but the All-Star center suffered an illness just when his left knee had healed to the point where he was likely to play.
