Timberwolves’ Love out with eye injury


MINNEAPOLIS – Once again, the Timberwolves’ injury list got longer.

Kevin Love – who appeared to have broken out of a shooting slump in Thursday’s victory over Oklahoma City – was poked in the eye late in that game. Because he had to keep pressure off the eye, he did not fly with the team to New York and will not play against the Knicks today, making it the 11th game this young season that the All-Star forward will have missed because of injury or illness.
