08:10 AM ET 04.06 | Timberwolves two-time All-Star forward Kevin Love was not cleared on Friday for contact action and will return to New York City to be evaluated by his hand surgeon early next week. The team last week said Love would be evaluated this week. His healing right shooting hand was not scanned by Friday, but the team's medical staff and Love's surgeon conferred after photos of Love's hand were forwarded to her. His return to New York City next week makes his return to play this season less likely. The Wolves begin a three-game Western trip at Golden State on Tuesday and by then only eight days and six games will remain in a season that ends April 17. Wolves coach Rick Adelman would like to see Love play again, even if only for a handful of games.

Where Did Your Love Go, Bros?

Sounds like Adelman's statement is a bit out of context. More like wishful thinking as part of his last year as coach of the Wolves. Seems Rick has made a decision to step away from coaching.

Love looks like a Ventriloquist Dummy in that photo.

Might as well have him sit out and not chance injury in a season that means nothing.

Maybe they want to get him on the court with Rubio some more. Maybe get fans excited for next season and sell a few more season tickets.

Makes sense...

Love wants out of Minny. Same for Rubio.

That is one of the funnier comments. He does look like a ventriloquist dummy. Also, the plays for the T Wolves, so what difference does it make if he plays any more this season?
