03:52 PM ET 02.25 | Bad luck has often struck the Minnesota Timberwolves this season, but perhaps no one to the extent of Kevin Love. The All-Star power forward has played in only 18 of the team's 53 games played thus far because of two separate breaks in his hand. As he and other injured T-Wolves players such as Brandon Roy and Chase Budinger have sat, Rick Adelman's team has sunk to 20-33. So Love, who is averaging 18.3 points and 14 rebounds when available, is still looking ahead. He is eyeing a mid-March return, which would give him 15-20 games of action. "No dribbling or shooting yet," Love said. "I'm not sure how far away I am from that. I have to check in with the doctor. I've just been worried about getting my body in shape, which is going great."

Must have some incentive on playing so many games or having so many rebounds

That's more love than what Bynum would give to the Sixers.
