Kevin Love PF/C MIN 9 Days

Kevin Love (back spasms) returned on Tuesday with 19 points, two 3-pointers, 12 rebounds, four assists, one block and four turnovers in 33 minutes.

He shot just 5-of-15 from the field but this was a rare occasion when his teammates picked him up, as the Wolves shot 46.2 percent en route to an easy win vs. the visiting Spurs. Love's future will be a constant source of speculation next season, and the Wolves' playoff drought is a big factor, but a strong showing in 2014-15 could change the equation. The biggest hurdle is health, and it starts with Love himself -- he's missed a total of four games this year, but he sat out a combined 91 games in the previous two seasons.

Kevin Love PF/C MIN 9 Days

Kevin Love (back spasms) will start vs. the Spurs on Tuesday, as expected.

Love will need to have a huge game for the Wolves to stay competitive, as they're already playing without Kevin Martin (heel) and Nikola Vucevic (ankle), as well as Chase Budinger (ankle) and Shabazz Muhammad (knee). Dante Cunningham, who is out on bail, will be available to play.

Kevin Love PF/C MIN 10 Days

Kevin Love (back spasms) is expected to return to action for Tuesday's game vs. the Spurs.

The Wolves finally get some good injury news, but they'll still be very short-handed without Nikola Pekovic (ankle), Kevin Martin (foot), Chase Budinger (ankle) and Shabazz Muhammad (knee). Even Dante Cunningham is questionable to play after being arrested again on Sunday. Fantasy owners relying on Spurs players should also be on the lookout for possible DNP-CDs, as this game is shaping up to be a blowout win for San Antonio.

Kevin Love PF/C MIN 15 Days

Kevin Love put up the third triple-double of the season on Wednesday vs. the Grizzlies with 24 points, 16 boards, 10 assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers.

He's put up all three triple-doubles since Feb. 22 and it's due partially to his improved skills as a passer. Love handed out 5.3 dimes per game in March for his best monthly average of the season. He's a fantasy superstar and his name will be a hot topic in the offseason among teams looking to make a splash.

Kevin Love PF/C MIN 17 Days

Kevin Love (illness) played as expected in the Wolves' 114-104 loss to the Clippers on Monday, scoring 20 points on 8-of-21 shooting (including two threes) with 13 rebounds, four assists and one steal in 29 minutes.

Love and some of the other starters were benched late, including Kevin Martin (12 points, 4-of-14 FGs, two threes, two boards, 30 minutes) and Ricky Rubio (three points, 1-of-6 FGs, one three, two boards, seven assists, five turnovers, one steal). Love has a history of late season disappearances and the Wolves look like they're running out of gas, but all owners can do is cross their fingers and hope he can keep it going for another two weeks.

Kevin Love PF/C MIN 17 Days

Kevin Love (illness) is expected to play normal minutes against the Clippers on Monday.

"He just has to refuel and get back out there," coach Rick Adelman said. Love should have a very nice game tonight and has done well in his three previous meetings vs. the Clippers, averaging 26.0 points, 12.7 boards, 7.0 assists and 2.0 triples.

Kevin Love PF/C MIN 17 Days

Kevin Love is available to play against the Clippers on Monday.

There is no word as to how he feels after admitting he's come down with an illness on Sunday during a game vs. the Nets. Love has been too good and still has three additional games this week, so his weekly owners have to get him in their lineups.

Kevin Love PF/C MIN 18 Days

Kevin Love was quiet again in Sunday's loss, scoring 14 points on 5-of-14 shooting with one 3-pointer, nine rebounds and three assists.

The Wolves' hopes of a playoff berth are all but extinguished, there are rumors that coach Rick Adelman will retire this summer, and it's fair to wonder if Love's focus has drifted over the past week -- he's averaging 16.5 points in the past four games. The good news is that he triple-doubled during a blowout win on Friday, and his next scoring eruption could be right around the corner.

Kevin Love PF/C MIN 20 Days

Kevin Love triple-doubled in the Wolves' 143-107 barbeque of the Lakers on Friday, scoring 22 points on 6-of-10 shooting (3-of-5 from deep, 7-of-9 from the line) with 10 rebounds, 10 assists and one steal.

Like many of the games tonight, there wasn't much to say about this mess. Corey Brewer stayed productive with 11 points, three rebounds, three assists, two steals and a 5-of-5 mark from the line, Ricky Rubio scored 10 points with six rebounds, six assists and a steal, and Kevin Martin scored 17 points with three rebounds, four assists and a three while hitting 7-of-12 shots.

Kevin Love PF/C MIN 22 Days

Kevin Love hit 5-of-9 shots and two 3-pointers for 14 points, 12 rebounds and four assists in Wednesday's cakewalk over the Hawks.

Love has been quiet in two straight games, averaging just 15.0 points, 9.5 rebounds and 2.0 3-pointers in those two. Neither game (a win and a loss) was close, and we fully expect him to bounce back on Friday against the Lakers.
