Gameday Thread: Blazers vs. Timberwolves

Steve Dykes-US PRESSWIRE

Last game of a 4 game road trip tonight, as the Portland Trail Blazers visit the Minnesota Timberwolves.

NEWS UPDATE: The Minnesota Timberwolves just announced that Kevin Love re-fractured the third metacarpal in his right hand. His status will be updated soon, but he's obviously not playing tonight. From their press release:

Minneapolis/St. Paul – The Minnesota Timberwolves today announced that an MRI (Magnetic Resonance Image) taken this afternoon at TRIA Orthopadedic Center revealed that forward Kevin Love suffered a re-fracture of his third metacarpal in his right hand. The injury occurred during the third quarter of Thursday's game at Denver.

Love will be examined by Dr. Andy Weiland, a hand specialist at Hospital for Special Surgery in New York, later this week. An update to Love’s status will be provided after that examination.

Love initially suffered a fracture of his third and fourth metacarpal in his right hand on Oct. 17. For the season, Love has played in 18 games and leads the Wolves in scoring (18.3 ppg), rebounds (14.0 rpg) and double-doubles (14).

Ricky Rubio is also out tonight due to injury.
