The game between the Minnesota Timberwolves and Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday has been moved to 4:30 p.m. ET, the T-Wolves announced on Tuesday night. Minnesota had to postpone Monday’s game vs. the Brooklyn Nets to Tuesday afternoon due to the events taking place in Minneapolis. As a result, the T-Wolves have opted to move the game to the afternoon with protests going on, seemingly as a safety precaution.

So Wednesday’s slate will be 11 games at night with the T-Wolves and Bucks likely to get the Showdown treatment on DraftKings for the afternoon. DK did a similar move on Tuesday with the Nets and Timberwolves having a Showdown slate with the early tip. Karl-Anthony Towns (personal) was absent from that game. We’ll see if KAT can get back into the lineup. Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee) has also been sidelined due to a knee injury. If both superstars are out of the lineup, we’ll have a different type of matchup Wednesday afternoon.
