MINNEAPOLIS - The truncated NBA season scheduled to start on Christmas Day doesn't leave much time for a preseason.
The Minnesota Timberwolves announced their two-game preseason schedule Friday afternoon, a home-and-home series with the Milwaukee Bucks.
The first game will be Saturday, December 17 at Target Center. The second game will be Wednesday, December 21 in Milwaukee.
Both games are scheduled to start at 7 p.m.
The preseason games will be the first chance for fans to see rookie guard Ricky Rubio, the 2009 NBA Draft pick who played the last two seasons in Spain.
The Timberwolves also announced tickets for the lone preseason game at Target Center will go on sale Wednesday, December 7 at 10 a.m.
The regular season schedule has not been released yet by the league.
