Kevin Love to Return Tonight?

by December 04, 2009

Maybe. Maybe not. Everyone (but Love himself) is ready for his return: “His doctors are satisfied and his coach is ready. Only one more person has to give Kevin Love the go-ahead before he returns to the Wolves’ lineup: Kevin Love. ‘I could go out there and compete right now, but as far as going out and feeling good, I don’t know,’ Love said shortly after his first full practice since being cleared to play. ‘It’ll be very soon. Whether it’s tomorrow or next week, we’ll have to see.’ Love, who had surgery on his left hand a few days after breaking a bone in mid-October, has been practicing all week. The hand feels fine — ‘It got crushed up against the backboard today and felt pretty good,’ he said — but after an initial jolt of adrenalin a few days ago, he has begun to realize his limitations, the result of six weeks without strenuous contact on the floor.”
