T-Wolves' Love has hand surgery

MINNEAPOLIS, Jan. 15 (UPI) -- Minnesota Timberwolves all-star forward Kevin Love had surgery to repair his broken right hand, the team said Tuesday.

Love -- the T-Wolves' leading scorer and rebounder -- will miss 8-10 weeks after the procedure to repair the third and fourth metacarpal bones in the hand.

Love also missed the first three weeks of the season with the same problem.

The player said he originally injured his hand while doing knuckle pushups during a pre-season workout. After sitting out until Nov. 21, he returned to play in 18 games, but re-fractured the hand in a Jan. 3 contest against Denver.

Love averaged 18.3 points and 14.0 rebounds per contest during his time in the lineup.
