The Minnesota Timberwolves will play against the Denver Nuggets on Thursday night in a must-win game 6 of the Western Conference semifinals and we got some good news regarding their lineup leading up to tip-off.

According to Shams (The Athletic), veteran point guard Mike Conley is expected to be available tonight, after having to sit out game 5 with a calf injury.

In the postseason, Conley is averaging over 11 points and 7 assists per game. He is the veteran straw that stirs the Timberwolves’ drink, especially on offense. When they need to slow down, he slows them down. When the troops need to be rallied, he rallies them. Having Mike back for game 6 is a big deal.
