Minneapolis, MN (Sports Network) - Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin
Love has suffered yet another break in one of his hands.
This time, it is a re-fracture of the third metacarpal in his right hand. An
MRI taken earlier on Saturday confirmed the damage.
The injury apparently occurred during the third quarter of Thursday's 101-97
win over the Nuggets in Denver. Love will be evaluated later this week by Dr.
Andy Weiland, a hand specialist at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New
York, and only then will a timetable for return will be provided.
Love had previously fractured the third and fourth metacarpals in that same
hand during preseason loss to the Chicago Bulls.
The 6-foot-10, 260-pound UCLA product leads the Wolves in scoring (18.3 ppg),
rebounds (14.0 rpg) and double-doubles (14) through 18 games this season.
