Kevin Love Will Return To Glory This Year

After missing a large chunk of the beginning of last fantasy season with a broken hand, Love finally returned for fantasy owners. However, the All-Star was forced to end his injury-riddled season early, due to season-ending knee surgery. Love only played in 18 games throughout the entire season and his 18.3 points in 2012 was down drastically from the 26 points he averaged in 2011. Love is completely healthy this year, though, and fantasy owners can expect the veteran to get back to putting up 20-10 on a nightly basis.
