Report: Timberwolves’ Kevin Love Expected To Be Out 8-10 Weeks

8495078 (1)More bad news for the Minnesota Timberwolves. Specifically Kevin Love. Here’s Marc Spears from Yahoo! Sports with the report.


Minimum of eight weeks means he could be back mid-March. By then, it may be too late for the Wolves to make a playoff run.

Kevin Love re-fractured his hand last Thursday in a win against Denver. It was the same hand that he broke doing knuckle push-ups. He was originally going to be out for six to eight weeks but he made a surprise return late November, five weeks after the injury originally occurred.

The Wolves have been stricken with bad luck in terms of health. Brandon Roy had a setback on his rehab recently and his return date remains unclear. Ricky Rubio finally returned a few weeks ago but he’s playing limited minutes. Chase Budinger had knee surgery in November and is not expected to be back until February. And his replacement, Josh Howard, was let go after he had torn an ACL and got season-ending surgery. Throughout all of this turmoil, the Wolves are 16-15 and are still in the playoff hunt. But it would take a serious push by the Wolves to make the postseason, especially with Ricky Rubio still being limited.

Love is averaging 18.3 points and 14.0 boards in 18 games but has struggled to shoot the ball. He’s shooting .352 from the field and .217 from behind the arc, both terrible shooting numbers. He shot .448 from the field and .372 from three-point land last season. Love also won the three-point shootout at Orlando during All-Star Weekend last season. So his fractured hand had definitely taken a toll on his game, especially his shooting.

The Wolves went 9-9 with Kevin Love in the line-up but are 7-6 without him. By no means are they better without Love in the line-up but they were a pretty deep team that had been robbed by various injuries.


Rey Moralde is a Southern California native who has a passion for basketball, old-school video games, sushi, and terrible pop music.
