Timberwolves' Love has successful surgery

Kansas City Star—October 22, 2009

Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love underwent successful surgery to repair a fractured hand on Tuesday.

Dr. Andrew Weiland performed the surgery at New York City's Hospital for Special Surgery. Love had three screws inserted into his hand as part of the procedure and is expected to be sidelined for the next 6-to-8 weeks.

Love fractured the fourth metacarpal in his left hand during Minnesota's 94-90 loss to the Chicago Bulls in preseason action last Friday. The injury occurred late in the third quarter when Love's non-shooting hand banged against teammate Oleksiy Pecherov's elbow during a rebound attempt following a foul shot.
