Love's injury will test young Timberwolves

+

Love's injury will test young Timberwolves...that's for sure. But don't despair, T-Wolves fans. "Love is the unquestioned leader of the Timberwolves. He's the reason this team has a chance to win this season, and now he'll have to sit and watch for at least the first four weeks of games. Right now, his projected recovery time stands at between six and eight weeks, which projects a return anywhere from Nov. 28 to Dec. 12. If that timetable holds, he'll miss 14 to 18 games. Relatively speaking, the Timberwolves are fortunate. Love's injury comes more than two weeks before the Nov. 2 season opener against Sacramento, and November is without question the team's easiest month. Minnesota faces just six teams that made last season's playoffs in its 15 games: the Magic, Pacers, Bulls, Mavericks, Nuggets and Clippers. Of those teams, only the Nuggets have made significant improvements, and of the rest, all but the Clippers should be weaker than they were last season." Is this a big blow? Certainly. But at least our schedule for the first couple of months is favorable. And maybe Williams will play well enough to boost his trade value and net us a better player in return.
