Things are not going terribly well for Kevin Love so far this season.
He missed the beginning of the season with a fractured right hand, and recently returned to play in 18 games for the Timberwolves. Now, it looks like he will have to miss some additional time, as he fractured his right hand once again. Via Real GM:
Kevin Love has refractured the third metacarpal in his right hand and will be examined in New York City later this week, the Minnesota Timberwolves announced on Saturday.
Love suffered the refracture in Thursday’s 101-97 win over the Denver Nuggets.
In his limited action this season, Love has averaged 18 points and 14 rebounds, but has struggled to find his shooting touch. His field goal percentage is at 35%, and his three-point percentage is below 22%.
Maybe Love wasn’t quite right the first time he returned. The Timberwolves will miss Love once again, and will have to stay afloat without him to make a run at the playoffs.

MINNEAPOLIS There are no simple mathematics to missing Kevin Love.
On Saturday, the Timberwolves lost by five points, 102-97, to the Trail Blazers. Love is good for those five points, easy. He's good for an average of 18 this season, 30 or more when he's on. But that comes at the expense, perhaps, of Derrick Williams' 18 fourth-quarter points Saturday, of Dante Cunningham...

So yeah, anyone who wasn’t sure if the Minnesota Timberwolves were cursed when Ricky Rubio decided to stay in Spain, injured his knee last season when leading something of an offensive revival for a fiesty T-wolves squad, or when lynchpin forward Kevin Love fractured his shooting hand in October which put him out for all but 18 games of this season can now be assured that the...
