Kevin Love is set to miss a small chunk of the beginning of the Timberwolves regular season after breaking his hand, the power forward is expected to be sidelined for the next 6-8 weeks. Love wasn’t asleep when the injury occurred, rather, he was working out – although not in an official Wolves workout.
The franchise made the announcement a short time ago. It comes as a major blow to the Wolves, who have playoffs on their mind this season, because they will also be without point guard Ricky Rubio for the first month of the season as well. Rubio is still rehabilitating his injured knee and is not expected to return until sometime in December.
