Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love expected to be out 8-10 weeks after having hand surgery on his right hand next week, a source tells Y! Sports.
Love missed the first three weeks of the season after breaking his hand during the preseason. He didnít need surgery for that injury.
Love surprised many by returning ahead of schedule on Nov. 21, but itís been clear over the last month that the hand was still bothering him. The defending 3-point shootout champion is shooting just 35 percent from the field and 21.7 percent on 3s.
He broke the hand again while jockeying for position under the basket against Denver last week. Heís been unavailable for comment since the injury.
