The Minnesota Timberwolves have to be scratching their heads right about now. During this morning’s shoot-around, T-Wolves’ All-Star center Kevin Love had broken his right hand.
The freak accident occurred during Love’s mini-workout, something the Timberwolves’ center had been doing prior to team practices. Due to the injury, Kevin Love will be sidelined for approximately six to eight weeks and will most likely miss the first month of this upcoming NBA 2012-13 season.
Not only will the Timberwolves be forced to begin their year without Kevin Love, the team will also have to play without their top-flight point guard in Ricky Rubio due to a torn ACL. Rubio is rumored to be out for at least six weeks.
The Minnesota Timberwolves had an overall record of 26-40 last season. The team was fifth in their division and 12th in the Western Conference.
When it rains, it pours.
