DENVER (AP) -- Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love sustained a mild concussion after taking an elbow to the head against the Denver Nuggets on Wednesday night and will be kept overnight at an area hospital for precautionary reasons.

Love was helped off the floor by medical personnel following an inadvertent blow from JaVale McGee when the Nuggets center went up for a shot. Love had missed all five of his shots in the first quarter before being knocked out of the game.

On the play, McGee caught a pass in the lane and was turning to shoot when his elbow struck Love squarely on the side of the head.

Love stayed down for several minutes as trainers tended to him. He was helped to his feet and gingerly walked off the court and into the locker room.

The UCLA product is the NBA's leading scorer since the All-Star break, averaging nearly 29 points.

Earlier in the contest, Love gave Kenneth Faried a hard shoulder to the chest as the Nuggets rookie flew down the lane after a rebound. Faried tumbled to the floor and had to be helped off, only to quickly return.

The Timberwolves were already missing Luke Ridnour, who is sidelined with a sprained right ankle. In addition, coach Rick Adelman said before the contest that Wayne Ellington is dealing with back spasms.

That sucks.


Stern's probably happy though.. With Minnesota falling, he won't look as terrible rigging the lottery for NO with their pick, if compared to if they were the 9th seed in the west.

Agreed, the Hornets are probably going to receive two top 5 picks, which is huge in this draft class.

Anthony Randolph had one of the best games of his career in his absence (would be a mediocre Love game), let's see if he can repeat that tonight.

Greg Williams put a bounty on Kevin Love.

Sad to hear, hope Love takes time to heal and get back 100%. Concussions are extremely serious.
