Kevin Love Expected To Return As Wolves Face Bulls Tonight

Kevin Love would probably be considered an MVP candidate if the Minnesota Timberwolves were able to muster more than 17 wins so far this season. Instead, it’s Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose — visiting the Target Center tonight — who is garnering quite a bit of attention when it comes to those discussing who might be the NBA’s most valuable player.

Tonight hopefully goes better than the last meeting between these two teams, which ended in a 31-point loss on December 11.

Love is listed as day-to-day on the team’s official injury report and could make his return tonight after missing the team’s previous three and a half games due to a groin injury. In his absence, Anthony Randolph and Anthony Tolliver were able to produce double-doubles, but having Love available again certainly helps the Wolves chances of winning.

While this game doesn’t mean anything for the Wolves — aside from a better chance at more lottery balls, I guess — the Bulls actually need to win this to stay atop the Eastern Conference to hold off the Miami Heat and Boston Celtics.
