Kevin Love Out 6-8 Weeks
Kevin Love will miss the next 6-8 weeks after breaking his right hand. Love broke the third and fourth metacarpals in a workout this past Wednesday.
This has to be devastating news for Timberwolves fans who will now be without their starting point guard – Ricky Rubio – and their starting power forward – Kevin Love – for the first 2 months of the season.
Just before training camp Love said, "We have a great training camp and we can get off to a good start and guys stay healthy, there's really no telling what we can do. I know a lot of teams in the Western Conference have loaded up, but I still feel we can knock those teams off and have a really good year."
On Tuesday night, Love scored 24 points and grabbed 8 rebounds in a preseason win over Maccabi Haifa. Love looked like he was in mid-season form after the Olympics in London, but breaking his shooting hand may set him and the Timberwolves back from making it into the playoffs once again this year.
