Timberwolves face Kings, seek second straight win without Butler

SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Now that the Minnesota Timberwolves have shown the rest of their NBA brethren that the sky might not be falling on them after all, they will try to continue to fuel hope that their drive to a playoff spot was not wrecked along with Jimmy Butler's knee.

The Timberwolves (37-26), seeking their first postseason appearance since 2004, will be looking for their first two-game winning streak in more than a month when they face the Sacramento Kings on Monday night at the Golden 1 Center. That it would be two straight victories without Butler, their All-Star guard, would only add to the significance of it.

Minnesota learned Sunday that it will be without Butler indefinitely after he underwent meniscus surgery on his right knee. The team has not put a timetable on his return, but several media reports citing sources close to Butler indicated that he is hopeful he can return this season if Minnesota makes the playoffs.
