Kevin Love Breaks Hand; Out for Six to Eight Weeks

Kevin Love Breaks Hand; Out Six to Eight Weeks

Kyle Terada-US Presswire

Minnesota Timberwolves All-Star and Olympian power forward Kevin Love will be sidelined for six to eight weeks after breaking both the third and fourth metacarpals on his shooting hand.

The injury occurred during a workout prior to a team practice on Wednesday and now the Timberwolves will have to begin the season without the two best players in Love and point guard Ricky Rubio who is still recovering from knee surgery to repair the torn ACL in his left knee.

There is a good chance that both Love and Rubio could return to the Wolves lineup around the same time which would be great for a team that had high expectations for the 2012-13 season. The longer that these two stars are out the more anxious the team and its fans will get.

Minnesota begins its season against the Sacramento Kings at home and now it will be left up to the other players on their roster to try and keep them afloat until their two young stars can return to action. During the offseason the team signed players such as Andrei Kirilenko, Brandon Roy and Donte Cunningham to provide more fire power to play along with their young talent such as Love, Rubio and Derrick Williams. Now the veterans along with Williams must compete hard in order to keep their postseason dreams alive even before their best two players get a chance to step on the court.

Love is scheduled to fly to New York on Thursday to see Dr. Andy Weiland to discuss the severity of the injury as well as possible treatment options.
