No sign that Kevin Love will return until 2013-14
Timberwolves forward Kevin Love has still not been cleared for contact, reports the Star Tribune. Love, who has been sidelined since mid-January because of a hand injury, is scheduled to be re-evaluated next week, according to the report. “I’ve said all along I’d like to see him come back and play,” coach Rick Adelman said. “The more guys we get on the floor down the stretch here, the better evaluation we can make."

Yeah, he won't play
Love will have that hand re-examined in New York City at the Hospital for Special Surgery on Tuesday and while he's there, he'll consult with another surgeon who will perform arthroscopic surgery to repair scar tissue on his left knee later this week, sources said Monday evening.
A source called the operation "minor."
The knee apparently has bothered him some much of the season. The plan was to have it done at the end of the season if his hand was cleared for contact action, but it bothered him more as he ramped up workouts for his return and the decision was made to have the surgery now.
