There’s a reason why Kevin Love sat out the Minnesota Timberwolves victory over the Bulls on Saturday night, the power forward was injured. But, it’s the way that Love injured his elbow that was intriguing. He wasn’t involved in any extra-curricular activities, or even hurt during a Wolves practice.scrimmage/game, Love injured his elbow while sleeping. Yes, sleeping.
He slept with his right arm extended off his bed all night Friday and said he woke up the following morning and could barey lift a basketball, let alone shoot one.
“I couldn’t shoot it 10 feet,” he said. “Just a fluke thing. I’m pretty sure it’s just a 24-hour deal.”
Love is expected to play in the Wolves next game against Israel’s Maccabi Haifa on Tuesday evening. Assuming he sleeps well on Monday.
