The Minnesota Timberwolves may get their star back before the season is over. Kevin Love, who is recovering from his second broken hand in a year, is sell 2-3 weeks away. However, that means there's a chance he could still play this season.
According to the Associated Press, Love's hand is healing properly, but he won't be able to return anytime soon. The 2-3 week estimate is optimistic. Love has not been cleared for full contact practice, and he will need to see his doctor again before that happens.
Love suffered a broken hand originally at the beginning of the season while doing knuckle pushups. He came back from that injury and was effective for a short period of time, but then he suffered a re-fracture of the hand. This time, the injury required surgery and Love has been out ever since.
This season, Love has played in just 18 games. In that time, he has averaged 18.3 points and 14.0 rebounds per game. In his career, Love has averaged 17.3 points and 12.2 rebounds per game. The Timberwolves are not going to the playoffs (barring a miraculous run), so it would seem Love's chances of returning this season get slimmer every day.
