MINNEAPOLIS You'll have to wait a little longer to find out who's going to start tonight for the Timberwolves against the Kings. With Kevin Love out, the power forward position is up for grabs, and it'll likely be Dante Cunningham or Derrick Williams out there to begin the game. There won't be confirmation of the decision until about 6 p.m. tonight, after coach Rick Adelman speaks to the media.Other than that, though, it'll likely be Nikola Pekovic (C), Andrei Kirilenko (SF), Brandon Roy (SG) and Luke Ridnour (PG) for the Timberwolves and DeMarcus Cousins (C), Tyreke Evans (SF), Jason Thompson (PF), James Johnson (SG) and Isaiah Thomas (PG) for the Kings.The Pekovic-Cousins matchup will be a good one; both are physical players, and Pekovic should be well equipped to go up against the Kings' best player. Point guard Isaiah Thomas might have been the most surprising rookie in the league last year. The last man picked in the 2011 draft, Thomas started 37 games ...

MINNEAPOLIS Kevin Love didn't want it to be like this.He wanted the cameras, but not like this. He wanted the questions, but not about this. He wanted the attention, but for something he'd done, not for everything he cannot.Nothing is more humanizing than an injury. It's amazing what that thin, removable cast can transform; an exemplar becomes just a bald guy in a folding...
Kevin Love says he understands the skepticism about the source of his broken right hand. The Minnesota Timberwolves All-Star, however, insists the story about knuckle push-ups gone wrong is true.
Love spoke publicly Wednesday for the first time since his injury, calling it ''pretty much a freak accident.''
He's heard all the conspiracy theories but said he really...
MINNEAPOLIS It isn't every day Kevin Love is mistaken for a senior citizen.That's what happened, though, in August, when the Timberwolves star and Kyrie Irving took the court for a staged pickup basketball game in Los Angeles. They were there for the second installment of Irving's "Uncle Drew" Pepsi commercials, and for the Cavaliers' point guard, the jig...
I thought the Pepsi MAX commercials with Kyrie Irving posing as an ::ahem:: older former baller named Uncle Drew were genius! Now we’re back with part two and it features more secret players in disguise as they take to the courts and hustle guys in pick up games. Check out the continuation as Uncle [...]
Previously on That NBA Lottery Pick, we featured a short film starring Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Kyrie dressing up in old man make-up as "Uncle Drew" and schooling some street ballers.In this clip, Uncle Drew invites help from old man name Wes who is really Timberwolves forward Kevin Love: (Courtesy of Pro Basketball Talk)
MINNEAPOLIS On Wednesday, James Harden's deal in Houston got done, as did Steph Curry's with Golden State and DeMar DeRozan's in Toronto. Chicago and Taj Gibson took it down to the wire. So did Jrue Holiday and Philadelphia, but both got their money. As the clock ticked to midnight, these and other members of the draft class of 2009 learned their fates; the winners saw...
The T’Wolves are an interesting team, a nice young core with little experience, but tons of talent. However, they are starting the season facing injuries to major contributors on the team. Kevin Love and Ricky Rubio won’t be back for a while out with a broken hand and recovering from ACL surgery respectively.
They did add Andrei Kirilenko and Chase Bundinger which should be able...
The Minnesota Timberwolves fell apart last season after Ricky Rubio went down with an injury. How they'll fare with both him and star Kevin Love sidelined to begin the 2012-13 campaign remains to be seen.
Brandon Roy and a host of newcomers make their team debuts Friday night when Minnesota hosts the Sacramento Kings, who will look to clean up their play after dropping their...
