Despite multiple injuries to Team USA's frontcourt, Kevin Love has had trouble getting on the court in pre-Olympic tune-ups.
Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love hasn't been logging many minutes for Team USA.
Love played just seven minutes in Team USA's 86-80 win Sunday over Argentina, the fewest of any of any player save James Harden and Anthony Davis, neither of whom played. Love grabbed two rebounds and didn't score.
Love's dearth of playing time is perhaps surprising given Team USA's shortage on big men. Dwight Howard is not playing because of the back surgery that cut short his NBA season, and Blake Griffin is out with a knee injury. Davis, the No. 1 pick in this summer's draft, is playing even less than Love.
Coach Mike Krzyzewski has been going smaller, with LeBron James playing big minutes alongside Tyson Chandler, the team's lone true center.
