Minnesota Timberwolves' Kevin Love was lost for the season when he had to have knee surgery. That, along with a broken hand, limited Kevin Love to play in just 18 games, and the Timberwolves failed to reach the playoffs due to other injuries as well. Kevin Love appears confident in the team next season, if they can stay healthy, says ESPN.In a tweet made by the Timberwolves PR account, Love looks to be completely health, doing his part to comeback next season.. @kevinlove says he feels great health-wise. "#Twolves fans should be very excited for things to come."— Timberwolves PR (@Twolves_PR) June 6, 2013In addition, Love said "If I'm not 100 percent, I'm really close to it, so I'm looking forward to having a very productive offseason," he said." With many players returning from injury, and the dismissal of David Kahn, the Timberwolves hope to secure a playoff spot next season. With Flip Saunders taking his place, Love feels confident. However, he still feels as if the team needs a "big-time" shooter. Love's contract gives him the option to opt out in 2015, and he has displayed displeasure with the team before. Both Love and Saunders have told the public that Love will not be traded, and Love himself that he is here to stay, for how long remains to be determined. Follow @hoopsinjurynews
