Kevin Love could miss the rest of the season

What was supposed to be an injury that would have him back at the end of March has been extended, and now Timberwolves forward Kevin Love acknowledges he might be done for the year after suffering a broken hand twice in a season.

"If the doctor says another week to 10 days or something like that, who knows?" Love said before the Wolves' game Sunday against Chicago at Target Center. "I'd like to come back, but I know not playing (the rest of the season) has crossed the minds of other people, whether it's (Wolves president of basketball operations Kahn) David, Glen (Wolves owner Taylor) or coach (Rick Adelman)."

The Wolves were hoping to get Love back and at least build some momentum for next year. The list of players to miss significant time with injuries this season for the Wolves includes Love, Ricky Rubio, Brandon Roy, Chase Budinger, J.J. Barea, Nikola Pekovic, Andrei Kirilenko, pretty much everyone on the team.

It's a lost year for the Wolves, and it might end up being a completely lost season for Love, who had shown frustration with the lack of progress the Wolves had made around him. This year, though, the problems were systemic all the way through.

Just one of those seasons.
