Injuries have hurt Wolves, but awful defense has hurt just as much

Welcome to the Wednesday edition of The Cooler, where the truth cannot be controversial. Let's get to it: *The impact of injuries on this Timberwolves' season is undeniable.

They are 15-19 since he last played. Injuries to several point guards at once derailed any momentum the Wolves had a couple months back. Now a...
