Kevin Love to play tonight

The Minnesota Timberwolves are expected to welcome forward/center Kevin Love back tonight as they visit the New Orleans Hornets.

With a 2-16 record, the Wolves are desperate for any help they can get. Love is key and, in the eyes of InsideHoops.com, the second best player on the team, behind Al Jefferson.

Love was hurt in preseason. This will be his first game of the 2009-10 regular season.

The Wolves this season haven’t looked anything remotely close to competitive. They’re scoring 91.6 points per game while giving up 104.4 ppg.

Love brings rebounding as well as scoring. He’ll help make the team look worthy of being in the NBA.
