Minneapolis • The Minnesota Timberwolves worked hard in the offseason to add talented veterans and make the roster deeper.
Kevin Love's broken right hand is about to put that depth to a serious test. The two-time All-Star will miss the next six to eight weeks after breaking his right hand in a workout.
During a Wednesday morning workout before practice, Love broke the third and fourth metacarpals on his shooting hand, the team said. It's a crushing blow to the Timberwolves, who already will be without star point guard Ricky Rubio for what is expected to be at least the first six weeks of the regular season while he recovers from a torn ACL in his left knee.
