No Love for K-Love! Our worst fears were revealed last night just before the games started when the Minnesota Timberwolves announced that Kevin Love re-broke that finger he broke before the season. The T-Wolves just cannot buy a break with Rubio being out for most of the season, Love breaking his finger (on shooting hand), Twice!! and to top it off, Nikola Pekovic (21/15) left in the 3rd quarter with an injured groin. Pek’s injury doesn’t sound too serious so don’t worry too much about him as he will be a beast while Love is out. Love will miss 4-6 weeks which is exactly what the timetable was the first time he broke the finger. They are saying that the break is not related to the earlier one, but I’m not buying that for a second. You’re telling me he just so happened to break the same finger on the same hand in about the exact same spot? Oh, sure. Either way, broken is broken, so your adds will be Dante Cunningham (10/12/3blk) and Derrick Williams (186/2). I like Cunningham as long...

Timberwolves' Love out with broken hand

Injury will prove Love's value to Wolves

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...

Kevin Love Fractures Right Hand, Again

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.

Rubio, Love not ready to return from injuries

MINNEAPOLIS The Timberwolves will be without Kevin Love and Ricky Rubio for Saturday night's game against the Trail Blazers. Love is sidelined with the sprained finger in his right hand that he sustained in the third quarter of Thursday's game, and Rubio has still not recovered from the back spasms that caused him to miss the past three games.Rubio was present at shootaround...

Minnesota T-Wolves: Kevin Love re-fractures shooting hand

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...

Hawks-Timberwolves Preview

Losing Kevin Love to injury leaves a huge hole in the Minnesota Timberwolves' lineup, but coach Rick Adelman can't afford for his team to wait for the All-Star forward to return. Now, it's uncertain when Timberwolves center Nikola Pekovic will be back. Point guard Ricky Rubio, though, is expected to return from his injury on Tuesday night when the host Timberwolves...

Hockey fans across the country celebrated the return of their sport -- especially those in the Land of 10...

Timberwolves make fan's dream come true

MINNEAPOLIS Cody Metz looks like any other 16-year-old Timberwolves fan. Sitting courtside while the team warmed up Tuesday for its game against the Hawks at the Target Center, Metz had the requisite jersey and awestruck smile. He was this close to Ricky Rubio, to Derrick Williams. He could have been hit by an errant basketball, for that matter. Of course he was a little overwhelmed...
