--F Kevin Love didn't waste Wednesday sitting at home, serving the final game of his two-game NBA suspension. He sent out a tweet late in the afternoon saying he'd meet his followers in 15 minutes in the Uptown area of Minneapolis with backpacks, signed hats and jerseys to give away. He drew a crowd, too, on such short notice. About 20 fans met him on the sidewalk to get his autograph and have their photos taken with him.
--C Nikola Pekovic on Wednesday came within a rebound of his fifth double-double in the last eight games. He did not join teammates Derrick Williams and Ricky Rubio in being named to play in the Rising Stars game despite his surge these last two weeks. "I don't know who decides that," Wolves coach Rick Adelman said of voting done by NBA assistant coaches. "But he's only been playing a lot the last two weeks. But look at what he's doing. He deserved a really good look at it."
--G Ricky Rubio's media blitz just goes on and on and on. He will be featured in the upcoming issue of ESPN the Magazine, which hits newsstands on Friday. That follows a Sports Illustrated feature and more daily media requests than he and the team can possibly fulfill.
--C Darko Milicic missed his second consecutive game because of a sprained ankle sustained in practice on Monday. He missed Saturday's game because of an injured quadriceps muscle and has missed four of the last six games because of injury or illness.
