Kevin Love is hoping to return in time to play in the final 15 to 20 games of the season for the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Love fractured the third metacarpal in his right hand on Jan. 3.

“It’s progressively getting stronger,” Love said. “With the weights and with everything I’m doing to improve range of motion. Hopefully I’ll shoot the ball better this time.”

Love is hoping to return at some point in March, but a definitive date has not been set.
