T-Wolves F Love fractures hand again

Minneapolis, MN (Sports Network) - Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love has suffered yet another break in one of his hands.

This time, it is a re-fracture of the third metacarpal in his right hand. An MRI taken earlier on Saturday confirmed the damage.

The injury apparently occurred during the third quarter of Thursday's 101-97 win over the Nuggets in Denver. Love will be evaluated later this week by Dr. Andy Weiland, a hand specialist at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York, and only then will a timetable for return will be provided.

Love had previously fractured the third and fourth metacarpals in that same hand during preseason loss to the Chicago Bulls.

The 6-foot-10, 260-pound UCLA product leads the Wolves in scoring (18.3 ppg), rebounds (14.0 rpg) and double-doubles (14) through 18 games this season.
