MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love will not make the team’s upcoming two-game road trip because of an injured left groin.

Love missed his second practice in a row on Wednesday and the team says he will stay home to rest. The Wolves play at Dallas on Thursday night and at Oklahoma City on Friday night.

Love was injured last week in a game at Utah. He played through the pain against the Lakers, but it became worse in the second quarter of a loss to the Kings on Sunday.

He is averaging 20.3 points and a league-leading 15.4 rebounds this season.

Anthony Randolph is expected to get the start in Love’s place against the Mavericks.
