07:52 AM ET 01.08 | Timberwolves forward Kevin Love, whose broken right hand was examined Monday in Minnesota, will await a final decision on treatment -- including whether surgery is an option. The prospect of losing Love for an extended period has [[David Kahn] considering his options. The team has a roster spot available, but Kahn wasn't even ready to agree with the idea that a big man was the primary need. He said fluid situations with Chase Budinger's recovery from knee surgery and Brandon Roy's attempt at a new therapy for his right knee give the team needs at a number of positions. "I still think we need to add some depth, perhaps everywhere," he said. "But, when you lose somebody with Kevin's production capabilities, it's a big hole to fill."

Minnesota like Chicago has been snake bit with injuries the last two seasons. Injuries suck because it just takes away great player from the game.

Kobe will own the Thunder, Spurs and Rockets with D12, Gasol, and Hill all out

QUOTE(#12):

I think this may be the same injury or at least related to it. It's not like he's getting multiple unrelated injuries like Kyrie "Mr Glass" Irving does.

probably, and most injuries are "bad luck" too. But begs the question of strength and conditioning if a player develops a pattern.
I say the same thing about 'Melo too. Looks SO strong but he gets "injured" on ticky tacky contacts.
On the other hand Kobe/James just walk it off and play through pain.
