Wolves’ Love Sidelined By Bruised Left Quadriceps

All-Star forward Kevin Love missed Minnesota’s game against Portland because of a bruised left quadriceps, and starting point guard Kevin Martin also was out Saturday night because of a broken left thumb that will sideline him indefinitely. Love limped noticeably a couple hours before the scheduled tipoff. He told reporters he took a knee from New Orleans’ Greg Steimsma on Friday night in Minnesota’s road loss. Before the injury was announced, Love — averaging 25.6 points and 13.3 rebounds — said he had no plans of skipping the All-Star game.

With Pekovic Gone, Wolves In Pain

Nikola Pekovic was no longer wearing a walking boot on his injured ankle at Monday’s practice, but Minnesota Timberwolves coach Rick Adelman still says he has “no clue” when his big man might return. One thing is clear: they need him back as soon as possible. Kevin Love was almost unstoppable Saturday night with 43 points and 19 rebounds, but that wasn’t enough to pull off a win.
