Kevin Love Fractures Right Hand, Again
Things are not going terribly well for Kevin Love so far this season.
He missed the beginning of the season with a fractured right hand, and recently returned to play in 18 games for the Timberwolves. Now, it looks like he will have to miss some additional time, as he fractured his right hand once again. Via Real GM:
Kevin Love has refractured the third metacarpal in his right hand and will be examined in New York City later this week, the Minnesota Timberwolves announced on Saturday.
Love suffered the refracture in Thursday’s 101-97 win over the Denver Nuggets.
In his limited action this season, Love has averaged 18 points and 14 rebounds, but has struggled to find his shooting touch. His field goal percentage is at 35%, and his three-point percentage is below 22%.
Maybe Love wasn’t quite right the first time he returned. The Timberwolves will miss Love once again, and will have to stay afloat without him to make a run at the playoffs.
