MINNEAPOLIS Kevin Love will fly to New York on Wednesday morning to meet with Dr. Andy Weiland, a hand specialist at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York. Weiland worked with Love on his past two hand injuries, and Love has an appointment scheduled with him for Wednesday afternoon. The team will have a better idea of the course of action to be taken after that appointment.
Love broke the third metacarpal in his right hand with 4:15 remaining in the third quarter of last Thursday's game in Denver. It's the second time he's broken the bone this season; he broke the third and fourth metacarpals on his right hand during training camp in October.
Lazar is back: Lazar Hayward, who was waived on Sunday after playing two games with the Timberwolves last week, was back at the practice facility Tuesday. He was allowed to watch but not to participate, at least until he clears waivers at 4 p.m. If Hayward does clear waivers, the team is prepared to sign him to a 10-day contract.
