For the fourth consecutive season, the Minnesota Timberwolves will have all 82 games televised with a strong slate of games airing on national TV.

The Minnesota Timberwolves announced their upcoming telecast schedule for the 2019-20 season. The team and FOX Sports North have a partnership together and with that deal comes a lot of televised games.

The Wolves playing all 82 games on television for the fourth season in a row is big news. You can catch all games on FSN, but if fans are unable to get that channel, they can at least six of their games on national television.

The only ESPN game on the slate is against the Houston Rockets on Friday, Jan. 24. There are five games scheduled for NBA TV throughout the course of the season, although that schedule is always subject to change.

The team will open the regular season on TV against the Brooklyn Nets on Oct. 23 with an even more intriguing game against the Miami Heat on deck.

That game will be the team’s first home game of the season on Oct. 27. Even more importantly, it marks the first time fans will be able to see Jimmy Butler back at the Target Center. Coverage for that game will start at 5 p.m. CT, with the game tipping off at 6 p.m.

Along with all of the intriguing matchups that will be on display all regular season, fans will be able to catch two preseason games on FSN.

There isn’t much of a chance for people to go to Target Center to catch the Wolves in action this preseason. They will be playing just one of their five tune-up games at home. That matchup will be on Oct. 13 against Maccabi Haifa.

That is the first preseason game that will be televised and the Wolves’ road trip to Milwaukee to play the Bucks on Oct. 17 will be the other one.

Despite there not being many opportunities to see the Wolves in action during the preseason, fans can rest assured knowing they can see the important games all season long.

There will be a lot of familiar faces returning to FSN to cover the games. Dave Benz and Jim Petersen will be calling games together for the eighth consecutive season. Along with those two, FSN will be seeing Marney Gellner, Lea B. Olsen, Kevin Lynch, Quincy Lewis, Rebekkah Brunson and Tom Hanneman back in the studio and on the sidelines.

There will be one newcomer to the party and that’s Annie Sabo, who will be a host of the “Wolves Live” series.

If fans are unable to view the games at home on FSN, they can also view them on the go with FOX Sports Go.

It’ll be another competitive and fun season in Minnesota, and thankfully fans will be able to watch all 82 games once again this season.
