It may be just the fourth game of the season, but the Memphis Grizzlies are already in rest mode with a pair of their top stars, sitting out Tuesday night's game at Minnesota.

Both big man Marc Gasol, and point guard Mike Conley are on rest restriction.

They're coming off injuries that severely limited their activity last season, so coach David Fizdale is taking no chances with their health going forward.

That means a lineup of Youngsters, with free agent training camp acquisition Troy Williams getting his first NBA Start.

The rookie out of Indiana went undrafted, but shows why he could be of value going forward.

The 6'7" Wing hits his first 5 shots..finishes with 14 pts, but the Grizzlies start tuning it over and the T-Wolves take full advantage.

A total of 22 turnovers, many leading to Zach Lavine fast break points were recorded in the game.

Lavine was on fire, 31 points, including five 3-pointers.

Bright spots for Memphis, rookie second round pick DeYonte Davis 17 points, six rebounds, two blocks.

Tony Allen is back for the first time this season, getting some time in off the bench.

Veteran Vince Carter hit five points Tuesday night, giving him 24,000 for his career, but this one was not close.

T-Wolves blow out the shorthanded Griz with a final score of 116-80.

Memphis back home Wednesday vs New Orleans at FedExForum.
