Timberwolves center Rudy Gobert is in the starting line-up as Minnesota tries to reach the NBA Playoffs Friday night.
Gobert was suspended for the Wolves first game of the play-in tournament against the Lakers after getting in an altercation with teammate Kyle Anderson on Sunday. Gobert has also been fighting through back problems and had said he would not have been able to play against the Lakers even if had not been suspended.
