@WojYahooNBA T-Wolves Star Kevin Love has suffered a broken right hand and will be out 4-to-6 weeks, league sources tell Y! Sports


Will this hurt their playoff hopes this season?

I hope not.

Horrible, i heard 6-8 weeks. Playoffs chances is bascally can Williams, Pek, AK47 keep them at 500 until Love and Rubio come back.

Wolves open with something like 15 games in November, 5 of which are projected playoff teams. Hoping Roy's knees allow him to be awesome for at least the early portion.

Just sucks. Shooting hand on top of everything, meaning he will have to fight off rust when he does come back. Why do the basketball gods hate the Wolves so much?

Didn't KLove say that if the Wolves weren't going to make the playoffs this season, he would seriously considering looking at other options (aka requesting a trade?). Well, if they don't make the playoffs in the tough West with him and Rubio missing the first 6 wks of the season, does he still go that route knowing that a big part they wouldn't make the playoffs is because of his own injury to begin the season?

No, he basically said he was the only member of the Olympic squad that hasn't been in, and he wanted to send a message to the Wolves FO to get him help. He is locked up for 3 years. He has absolutely no pull for 2. He also commented on how happy he was with the offseason they had. Furthermore, Kevin, you are the one missing games, man up, and move on.

We shall see. Pekovic now needs to be a 20 a night guy for the first 15 games, Roy needs to be 80% of old Roy, and Kirilenko needs to be his former self. Luckily, the Wolves have a fairly soft opening 15 games, facing only 5 probable playoff teams. If they can somehow be around 8-7, or 9-8ish when Love gets back, and Rubio starts practicing, all is fine. We shall see if that is the case.

Bad new, but better that it happens early when Roy and AK should be at their best (healthwise). As long as Pek, Roy, AK and Williams can keep the record even, Rubio and Love can pump the record up once they get back.

The west also isn't what it was. You don't need to win 50 to make it anymore. The west is finally getting older. 50 wins last season, percentage wise, gave you a 5 seed.

At least one month without Rubio and K-Love. I always thought the T-wolves would not make the playoffs because of injuries I just didn't think it would be K-Love. Although its just 1 month that is ALOT of games.

We'll see, but I mean until Rubio and KLove come back which I presume will be early-to-mid December, you have to look at the teams that will have better records than them by that time.


Lakers, OKC, Clippers, Spurs, Nuggets, Grizzlies are a given.

Then you know the Suns and Mavs will try to stay as competitive as they can, and the Jazz are a wildcard.


I would love to see your Wolves make the playoffs, but I just don't know how likely it will be for them when teams like the Suns, Mavs and Jazz get a 6 wk head start on them.

That definitely was the last injury I think anyone was expecting. Now, to make the playoffs, let's say you need about 50 wins out West. If Rubio and Love aren't back/ready until January (which is well over 8 weeks on Love but factors in returning to playing form), that's 27 game. If the team can go .500 or about 13-14 then they need to win 2/3s of the rest of their 55 games which is doable.

Yeah it's not bad but there's no doubt they take a step back without Nash. There will be games Beasely looks like a god and someone who you sit there and say how is this guy not a top 5 scorer in this league but those games come around every once in a blue moon. Dragic is definitely still a great PG but I don't see him being able to maximize limited potential like Nash was. Some of those Suns teams were just so bad I don't even know how Nash made them competitive.

So really I think the Wolves still have playoff potential and possibly even upset potential in the playoffs once this team gets clicking with Rubio and Love back. It's been said but we need to be right around .500 when they come back and hopefully we will be.

10-17-2012, 09:36 PM
As a Twolves fan I got to say this:

- Derrick Williams can't "hold down the fort", he's an inconsistent work in progress. But he will pull off a good game here and there.
- Brandon Roy can't "hold down the fort", last thing I would do is put pressure on him and his empty knees. But he's cool to play his 24 min under the radar, pass the ball, score a bit, just do his thing.

Guys I expect to hold down the fort are:

C - Pekovic/Amundson - Pekovic arrived at the camp in awesome shape, he should go wild in this first month at least. Amundson is limited, but he's ready to hustle off the bench. Stiemsma doesn't seem like much in the preseason, no idea if he catches up.

PF - Kirilenko/Cunningham - Kirilenko is as reliable as they come, I'm only afraid that he doesn't get injured as well. Cunnigham is ready, he won't let down.

SF - Budinger - He won't be brilliant but he won't bad either. Derrick Williams should also have couple of the good games, but he'll have the terrible ones as well.

Our guard rotation is a question mark to me.

SG - Roy/Shved - Roy should do well in his limited role, but I wouldn't like to see him forcing things. Shved is like Williams, but a rookie instead of sophomore. He'll do nice things occasionally, but is still too erratic.

PG - Ridnour/Barea - This is where I'm afraid the most. Ridnour seems worse than last year, and could easily get injured again, and JJ Barea is.. well, JJ Barea.

Kenyon Martin going to get paid and get minutes in Minny? You don't invest in AK and Roy, and try to show Love you are about winning to avoid him going Dwight and Melo on them to not even try to compete just because Love hurt his hand, and Martin is the best replacement on the market and better than anyone on the team.

His D isn't behind him. Ask the Memphis frontline. He's worlds above Pek, AK, Love, and Williams on one on one D. He was brilliant guarding Zach and Marc in the post and then switching out on the perimeter and keeping Gay in front of him with everything on the line.

I still say that it makes no sense to me that Kenyon wasn't courted hard by the Spurs because eh would instantly be the second best big they have and stop Duncan from being demolished by whole front lines like the past playoffs where he wears down eventually covering for those soft 4s

I think you overrate Kenyon, hes a ghost offensively and not much of a rebounder. Hes still quick laterally but I dont know what makes you think he defended the Memphis bigs all that well. Z-Bo was Evans ***** while K-Mart heroically tried to defend their center, it was a tall task that he deserves some kind of credit for but he didn't do that great of a job by my account.

Still if he would get over himself and just accept an min deal, Im sure lots of teams would be lining up to provide it.

10-18-2012, 02:13 AM
I honestly think they can still make the playoffs. It wont be easy but Pekovic has continued to improve Barea is solid until Rubio is healthy, AK47 and Shved should be a bosst and Roy looks to be about the same as 2 years ago's playoffs where he lit up Dallas. (not saying he will be doing that every night or ever but he can score and facilitate)

Again it wasnt a lock to begin with but IF Love and Rubio come back healthy I thing they can still get in.

Defense isn't really an issue as losing Love doesn't impact that immensely. Daunte Cunningham actually has been pretty impressive overall (versus expectations) and Stiemsma can provide defense as well. The issue is that those two and Lou Amundson are fairly limited offensively.

Overall, the schedule does not look that difficult (going primarily off of last year) considering the first 2 months of games includes:

-2 against Orlando (R) = re-building
-2 against Sacramento
-2 against Dallas (with Dirk having knee troubles of his own)
-2 against Golden State
-Charlotte
-Portland (R)
-Milwaukee
-Cleveland
-New Orleans
-Houston (R)
-Phoenix

If williams plays well he's trade value will increase a lot and i'm pretty sure he will be traded during the season

Also Love won't be as worn down by the end of the season so if they make the playoffs he would be in better shape

They would be a .500 team even whitout Love at least i hope so. i would hate not to see LOve in the playoffs he deserves it

Will be a dog fight for them to get into the playoffs. Not impossible, but definitely an uphill battle.

You read that right. Kevin Love broke two bones in his right hand doing knuckle pushups during a workout at his condo on Wednesday with personal trainer Rob McClanaghan.

Love visited a doctor in New York, who confirmed that no surgery will be necessary. The timeline -- Love will return in 6-8 weeks -- remains in place.

Honestly, at this point, the Wolves are running out of excuses. And they know it. That being said, yes, its a terrible streak of luck we are enduring, and hopefully Roy will beast early, Kirilenko as well, and Non coming into camp and great shape will show up on the floor. Williams is a wild card, I just don't have faith in him until he shows me something consistently.

Love has been doing them since grade school. Its why he has extremely strong hands, which has helped him in rebounding and outlet passing.

I was trying to re-create what may have happened, and he must have been going at a high rate, and bent his hand one way or another. I mean, he has done thousands upon thousands of these types of pushups, and all of a sudden now he gets an injury? Weird.

Uh oh.


If Love is out for too long.... the Wolves have no hope/chance at winning the championship this year.

Not if the Bulls suck...saw them in a preseason game and wow did they look atrocious. Can't believe I saw Marko Jaric and Vlad Radmanovic on an NBA roster!

You don't think D Rose and Love would be amazing together?

Either that or he did actually punch somebody and they are using his knuckle push ups as a cover. Is Barea missing half his face?? Someone look into that.
