Adding to the strains of a cross-country back to back, the Warriors will be without DeMarcus Cousins for the second straight game, coupled uncertainty of Andrew Bogut's effectiveness after a weeklong stretch of world travel. 

With Karl-Anthony Towns on the docket and Golden State nearing the end of a four-game road trip, the Warriors will have their work cut out for them. 

Here's everything you need to know about the matchup.

INJURY REPORT

Warriors: Andre Iguodala (dental work) is probable. Jacob Evans (illness) and Shaun Livingston are questionable. DeMarcus Cousins (right ankle soreness) and Damian Jones (left pectoral surgery) are out.

Timberwolves: Robert Covington (Right Knee Bone Bruise) is out, Luol Deng (Left Achilles Soreness) is out, Derrick Rose (Sore Right Elbow) is out, Jeff Teague (Left Foot Inflammation) is out

 

ROTATION

Warriors: With Cousins out Tuesday, Bogut should get the bulk of the minutes. In his regular-season debut, the big man finished with seven points, seven rebounds and a steal in 19 minutes. 

Meanwhile, Klay Thompson and Steph Curry are looking for a bounce-back performance. In Monday's loss, the Splash Brothers made just 14-of-43 from the field. 

In a game the Warriors need an offensive boost, a good shooting performance will be more than ideal for Golden State. 

Timberwolves: Despite their record, Minnesota is 23-10 at Target Center this season. 

Karl-Anthony Towns is playing fantastic, averaging 24.6 points, 12.2 rebounds and 3.3 assists this season.
