2:48pm: The Wolves have confirmed the cuts via Twitter.
11:26am: The Timberwolves are expected to waive center Chris Johnson and small forward Mike Harris, according to Jerry Zgoda of the Star Tribune. Minnesota must shed two players by the Saturday deadline in order to get down to the 15-man maximum.
Johnson, who stands at 6'11", was released by the Trail Blazers last season when trade deadline acquisitions forced the club to trim down the roster. The 27-year-old then hooked on with the Hornets but played in just seven games before suffering a concussion. Harris, 29, last appeared in the Association in 2010/11 in a stint with the Rockets.
