Love met with specialists in New York on Thursday, one day after breaking his hand while doing knuckle pushups in a morning workout. Doctors informed Love that the injury can heal without surgery, but he is still expected to miss six to eight weeks.
Analysis: Coach Rick Adelman says he will spend the next two weeks of the preseason experimenting with lineups to see what the best combinations will be to reduce the damage done by Love's absence. The two-time All-Star averaged 26 points and 13.3 rebounds last season. Adelman says they'll need everyone to step up. He thinks Brandon Roy will have to take over more of the scoring load.

The team made the announcement after practice, saying Love broke the third and fourth metacarpals on his shooting hand during a morning workout.
Analysis: It's a crushing blow to the Timberwolves, who already will be without star point guard Ricky Rubio for at least the first six weeks while he recovers from a torn ACL in his left knee. Love is a two-time All-Star who led the team in scoring and rebounding last season. He also played a key role in Team USA's march to the gold medal in the London Olympics. The injury likely means more playing time for Derrick Williams.
