The Timberwolves listed eight players on their injury report for Thursday's game.

“It can't get any worse, man,” said Barea, who received eight stitches to his lip after a collision late in the first half against the Clippers. “It can't get any worse.”

Minnesota coach Rick Adelman said he's never seen anything like it in his 20-year coaching career.

“It's just been one thing after the other,” Adelman told The Associated Press. “It seems like the way this season has gone, as a coach I took the first 40-something games and saw the progress we made and now I'm seeing it go in the other direction quickly.”

On March 12, the Minnesota Timberwolves owned a 22-21 record and were in the thick of the Western Conference playoff race.

One month later, they are riding an eight-game winning streak, have lost nine of their last 10 and are one of the league's most injury riddled franchises.

Friday's box score: Thunder 115, Kings 89
