If we lose Love for 2-3 weeks our playoffs hopes are done. I ripped him a lot for his playing tonight, but we need him to win.

This. Although, it is still a big loss. Love was struggling, but he still drew a lot of attention, was rebounding as well as anyone in the game, and takes up a lot of minutes. Love playing his worst still makes more of an impact than Williams/Cunningham can for extended periods of time at there best. I wouldn't be as worried if we didn't have so many injured guys.

AK can play some PF and we can get buy with some minutes of D-Will and Dante there. We'll be ok, but it's definitely a setback.

Not true. With Rubio back he can cover a lot of our defeciencies on Offense. Same with AK. Pek will need to continue to step it up, but we have a lot more depth this year you have to remember.

Shved, AK, Pek, Ridnour, JJ, and Rubio can all create some offense. We'll be ok. We'll probably even play better defensively. So it'll be ok. It's not ideal, but we'll be ok.

Plenty of games left to be played and we'll have Rubio back.

Perhaps an injury to Love would push Kahn to move D.Will, a PG, 1st, etc for Varejao?

We're just asking for an AV injury to occur by joining our cursed franchise.

Doubt it. By the time Kahn is ready to cut the cord on Williams, he won't fetch anything close to a starting quality player.

OJ Mayo is one of the best defenders in the league, hes a two way player and hes a great passer and playmaker.

I'll be more comfortable after an MRI. Xrays can miss things.

forgot ak47 is lebron james

so pekovic is karl malone.. cool
Can we sign JJ?? He is rubios backup and is clearly a starter in this league.

I thought that the Hornets played a good game tonight, but the Wolves played better, one of the best games so far.

Hornets have some talent, but they played like the inexperienced team they are. They should be very good in a few years assuming Gordon comes back healthy.

And when they do that MRI, could they also check what's going on between his ears?

#TWolves Kevin Love suffered a right thumb contusion in the 4th Q of the Wolves win over NOLA. X-rays were negative and he is day-to-day.

Great news.

Maybe then when he gets mad he gets stronger like the Hulk and dominates instead of complaining to the refs.
