Team owner Glen Taylor said Kevin Love (hand) is still "hopeful" to return by mid-March.

Both the player and owner feel it's important for Love to return this season so they can see what their current roster is capable of now that Ricky Rubio (ACL) appears 100 percent. The problem is that the fracture is on Love's shooting hand and he struggled badly with it when he returned too early the first time. Logic suggests Love will exercise extreme caution this time around, making this mid-March target date a best-case scenario.
