Love update 

Post#1 » by theGreatRC » Thu Nov 15, 2012 3:03 pm

Timberwolves forward Kevin Love said an X-ray of his right hand will be sent to Dr. Andy Weiland, a hand specialist in New York who examined Love after he broke two bones in his hand last month while doing knuckle push-ups at his home.

Weiland will evaluate the picture to determine the healing progress. Weiland examined Love after he broke the third and fourth metarcarpal bones on Oct. 17 and told Love he did not need surgery.


Love no longer is wearing the protective cast that was placed on his hand. The two-time all-star is doing individual conditioning work but has been prohibited from any contact drills involving his hand.

So, we should know more about this tonight or tomorrow about a more specific return date i'm guessing.

The other day Love said he was targeting an early-December return date.

Let's hope its only a couple more weeks..

So no knuckle push-ups? :wink:

This article is a week old, but...

"We were told six to eight weeks (until he can return to the lineup); I'm hopeful of Dec. 1," Kahn said. "It's going to be the medical staff and Kevin who will determine that."

Has Love been at the last couple games? They've been showing Rubio, Pek, and Barea but I haven't seen Love.

He's probably in a LA shooting more commercials. Once he comes back watch him hog the ball to get his numbers.

Should be pretty soon here. Hopefully within 10 days. That could mean only 3-5 more games.

It will be interesting to see if he goes on this West Coast road trip. The last game is on 11/30 in Los Angeles on TNT.
