Rambis: ‘Outside Chance’ Love’s Season May Be Over

DALLAS (AP) — Minnesota Timberwolves coach Kurt Rambis says there’s a chance that All-Star forward Kevin Love could miss the rest of the season because of a strained left groin.

Love sat out Thursday night’s game against Dallas after he was hurt in a 127-95 home loss to Sacramento on Sunday.

The Timberwolves have 10 games left after playing the Mavericks.

“There is an outside chance, I don’t know how great that chance is,” Rambis said. “Obviously, with hamstring or groin injuries, you want to be cautious with them because they can linger for a long period of time, and we don’t want that to happen with Kevin.”

Anthony Randolph started in Love’s place against the Mavericks.

Love, averaging 20.3 points and an NBA-high 15.4 rebounds per game, did not travel with the team while he receives treatment.

    Wow….this is soooooo disappointing……I thought for sure the wolfies would have made it to the playoffs……but without LOVE…..its over…….LMAO….


    Great! Just what the NBA needs the most exciting player in decades is done for the year. Might as well just close shop & end the season early……..

  • NBA is as bad as Soccer

    What a joke, obviously the Timberwolves are just trying to get more ping pong balls in the lottery. But, then they are only 5 really good ball players away from winning it all………….

  • BaseBall Sux

    Soccer is the premier sport in the world, followed by rugby, then Formula 1. The NBA and MLB are a joke throughout the world. Only the NFL has any respect. The pups won’t miss love, he is an average player on a really bad team…their winning % won’t drop a bit.

  • You go 8:56

    Bassball does suck…spelled wrong intentionally. Bass fishing with no bites is more exciting. Why would anyone watch such a boring sport. Played by nonathletic morons, watch by the same. I guess the fat kids need something to do…


    Formula 1 is a sport? I guess if Soccer is the premier sport in the world then anything is possible.

  • I Like Steroids

    I bet Barry Bonds could beat up any bass fiserman he wanted to….

  • This post proves how lame the Timberwolves really are

    You guys are all so insensitive, all the above named sports are played by people that have feelings…….

    Feelings, nothing more than feelings,
    Trying to forget my feelings of Kevin Love.
    Teardrops rolling down on my face,
    Trying to forget my feelings of Kevin Love.

    Feelings, for all my life I’ll feel it.
    I wish I’ve never met you, Kevin
    You’ll Never Come Again.

    Feelings, wo-o-o feelings,
    Wo-o-o, feel you again in my arms.
