MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Clean-shaven Timberwolves star Kevin Love says he’s feeling better after his concussion but is still unsure about playing in Minnesota’s next game.
Love has missed the last five games since his head injury in a game at Denver on April 11. He said Saturday after taking part in a light practice with the team he’s passed all of the required post-concussion tests. The Wolves host Golden State Sunday night.
Love is also sporting a new look, having shaved the scraggly beard he’s been growing all season. Coach Rick Adelman jokes that the All-Star power forward looks “about 12 years old.” Love says his estimate is closer to 18.
The Timberwolves have one more game this season after Golden State. They host Denver on Thursday.
