The Timberwolves finally got some positive injury news on Tuesday.
Minnesota’s coveted power forward Kevin Love underwent successful surgery Tuesday morning to repair his broken right hand, according to CBSSports.com. He suffered the injury on Jan. 3 against the Denver Nuggets.
Currently, Love is averaging a staggering 18.3 points, 14.0 rebounds, and 0.5 blocks per game. Minnesota has a number of players that will be sidelined due to serious injuries including Brandon Roy (knee), Chase Budinger (knee), and Malcolm Lee (knee). Additionally, Ricky Rubio (back) and Lazar Hayward (illness) are day to day.
The two-time All-Star will miss eight to 10 weeks with the hand injury. This is the second time Love has suffered a broken hand this year. He missed the Timberwolves’ first nine games to start the season.
