Kevin Love has passed all concussion tests and been cleared by the NBA to return to the court, but the Minnesota Timberwolves aren't about to take any chances with the new face of their franchise.
The Wolves shut their All-Star power forward down on Sunday, not wanting to risk further injury in the final two games of the season.
Love has been out since being knocked woozy in a game at Denver on April 11. He suffered what the team called a mild concussion and a strained neck, but the possibility remained that he would return before the season came to a close. But coach Rick Adelman said before Sunday's game against Golden State that the combination of missed time and the sensitive nature of head injuries made it not worth the risk.
Huzzah, time to tank for that draft pi....oh wait....
