Kevin Love Injured His Elbow While Sleeping

Kevin Love couldn’t play basketball this weekend because of a sore right elbow. He needs to learn how to sleep better. Per the Star Tribune: “Kevin Love’s going to need a bigger bed. The Timberwolves’ two-time All-Star along with starting small forward Andrei Kirilenko missed Saturday’s preseason return to Target Center — an 82-75 victory over the Chicago Bulls — because of a suddenly sore right elbow. Love didn’t bang it or hyperextend it while playing only the first quarter Friday in Indianapolis. No, he instead slept with his right arm extended off his bed all night Friday and when he awoke Saturday morning, he said he could barely lift a basketball. ‘I couldn’t shoot it 10 feet,’ he said. [...] Love, however, had no strength in that arm. Maybe he needs to get a bed like the one Jefferson, his former teammate, recently ordered in Salt Lake City: A 10-foot-by-12-foot one that cost more than $23,000. ‘My bed’s big enough,’ Love said. ‘Just a fluke thing. I’m pretty sure it’s just a 24-hour deal.’”

    This sounds like something that would happen to Boozer. Sleeping is dangerous.

    He just needs to be a little more careful when he is spanking the monkey.
