Timberwolves Love Out 8-10 Weeks

Posted: Updated:

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Kevin Love will miss the next eight to 10 weeks after needing surgery to repair a right hand that is broken for the second time this season.

 The Minnesota Timberwolves All-Star visited a hand specialist in New York on Wednesday. It's the latest major injury to a team that has suffered them all season long.

 Love missed the first three weeks of the regular season after breaking his hand in the preseason. He returned faster than most expected, played for about a month and broke two bones in his shooting hand in a game last week against Denver.

 Love was averaging 18.3 points and 14.0 rebounds per game after helping Team USA to the gold medal in the London Olympics.

 Yahoo! Sports first reported the surgery.
