Kevin Love Still Not Cleared to Play

Well, so much for suiting up in the final 15-20 games. Kevin Love’s hand surgeon didn’t give him clearance for contact play. The Minnesota Timberwolves forward will be re-evaluated in 2-3 weeks, making his return this season more and more unlikely. Per the Star Tribune: “His visit with Dr. Michelle Carlson of the Hospital of Special Surgery determined his right shooting hand is ‘healing properly,’ according to a team release, and he will continue to increase his conditioning program while he waits to be evaluated again. Two weeks would leave about three weeks left in the season — or about 12 games — although he likely would need some practice time and wouldn’t go directly into playing games. Three weeks would leave about two weeks left, or eight games at the very most.”

    Disappointing season (obviously) for Love and the Wolves. I enjoy watching him play and was looking forward to watching the T-Wolves in the playoffs. Yes they would have made it to the playoffs with a healthy K-Love.
    Here’s to next year fellas!

    Had they made it this year, who do you take off?

  • LakeShow

    Whoever would be below them lol.
    May it be Houston, the Jazz, Warriors…
    They are a playoff team when healthy is my point.

    The Jazz are not a playoff team no offense to whoever is a Jazz fan. They will be obliterated by whoever is the top seed.

    You came with two unrelated statements, I don’t need to say anything more than the two words and the ..

    Have you ever heard of the idiom, apples to oranges?

  • roscoe

    i can correlate apples to oranges…

    they grow on tress and are fruit for starters.

    additionally, they have many nutritional values i won’t mention.

    lastly, yes i have heard of idiom and its rhymes with idiot.

    what now?

    Ok so you know some elementary facts about fruits. Let me supplement your argument by stating that the back and the hand are two parts of the human body.

    Wow I guess that means they are both anatomically identical and that they perform the same function. Wait maybe it also means that they’re used the same way in basketball!

    Except no. The hand and the back are not remotely close to being the same, try again.
