The Nets continue to battle the injury bug in Minnesota as they get ready to take on the Timberwolves later tonight. Deron Williams will not play tonight after re-injuring his left ankle in Charlotte Wednesday night. Brook Lopez and Andrei Kirilenko will not return to the lineup either, Lopez battling an ankle ailment of his own, while Kirilenko is still recovering from his back spasms. Jason Terry joins the team's lengthy injury report with a bruised left knee.

Lopez will miss his fourth straight game, while Williams will miss his third in four games. Kirilenko will miss his eighth straight game. There is no timetable for any of their returns.
Brooklyn will likely roll out the same starting lineup from Wednesday against the Bobcats, with Shaun Livingston and Reggie Evans starting for Williams and Lopez, respectively.
