In what the Timberwolves hoped to be a playoff contending season, their star, Kevin Love, has only appeared in 18 games. Love broke his hand in pre-season, and returned on November 21, only to break it again in early January. As he rehabs from surgery, Love expressed wanting to play the final 15-20 games.
According to ESPN:
Love said he plans to meet with doctors for another examination on his surgically repaired hand toward the end of the first week in March or the beginning of the second week. He’s hoping to return with 15-20 games remaining in the season to try and put a positive end to a most disappointing year.
