Kevin Love makes surprise season debut for TimberwolvesPosted by Inside Hoops
Kevin Love sure knows how to make an entrance.
His banged-up Minnesota Timberwolves never needing him more, Love made a surprise return to the starting lineup on Wednesday against Denver, nearly two weeks ahead of the rehabilitation schedule set for his broken right hand.
The All-Star and Olympic gold medalist’s injury was announced on Oct. 18, two weeks before the team opened its most promising season in years. The team initially set a return of six to eight weeks. But Love was able to avoid surgery, and he quietly worked to get back at just under five weeks.
