Timberwolves star Kevin Love re-fractures right hand


MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love has re-fractured his right hand.

The team said an MRI on Saturday revealed that Love re-fractured his third metacarpal in the hand and that he will be examined by a hand specialist in New York.

The original injury, sustained Oct. 17, forced Love to miss the first three weeks of the season and has hampered his shooting. He re-injured the hand during the third quarter Thursday niight at Denver.
