Timberwolves-Lakers Preview

(AP) -- While the reeling Los Angeles Lakers aren't getting the chance to see their top draft pick, the depleted Minnesota Timberwolves are at least giving some young talent an opportunity to grow.

The two worst teams in the Western Conference meet Friday night with the Lakers hoping to avoid their fifth consecutive home loss and the Timberwolves trying to avert their fifth straight defeat on the road.

Los Angeles (3-12), mired in the worst start in franchise history, suffered its third straight defeat and fell to 1-7 at Staples Center with Wednesday's 99-93 loss to Memphis.
