The Minnesota Timberwolves' All-Star Kevin Love has reportedly suffered a broken hand and is expected to be out for the next 6 to 8 weeks. His injury will cause him to miss the remainder of the preseason and possibly the entire first month of the regular season.
During a Wednesday morning workout before practice, Love broke the third and fourth metacarpals on his shooting hand, the team said. It's a crushing blow to the Timberwolves, who already will be without star point guard Ricky Rubio for what is expected to be at least the first six weeks of the regular season while he recovers from a torn ACL in his left knee.
The Timberwolves open the regular season at home against Sacramento on Nov. 2.
