Minnesota Timberwolves guard Mike Conley was in the starting lineup for their must-win Game 6 Thursday against the Denver Nuggets.

Conley missed the team's 112-97 Game 5 loss in Denver due to a calf injury. Nickeil Alexander-Walker started in his place, recording 14 points and five assists in 39 minutes.

The 36-year-old is averaging 11.3 points, seven assists, and 3.8 rebounds in eight playoff contests.

After winning the first two games in Denver, the Timberwolves have dropped the last three contests, including two in Minnesota.

The Timberwolves are playing in the second round for the first time since 2004.
